Here’s the latest on the Pacers’ attempts to trade Paul George.
The Pacers are going to trade Paul George.
Indiana has reportedly been told by the All-Star guard that he’s leaving after the 2017-18 season. He wants to end up in Los Angeles.
So they’re going to trade him sometime this summer so they don’t lose him for nothing.
Who are they going to trade him to?
Two teams appear to be the frontunners – the Cavs and the Lakers.
Cleveland has reportedly already contacted Indiana about a potential trade and Los Angeles is reportedly ready to swoop in if any talks with the Cavs get serious.
Two NBA sources expect Lakers to parachute into Paul George talks if the Cavs are closing in on a deal. Unclear if #2 would be on the table.
