Is Larry Bird reluctant to trade Paul George to the Lakers because of his hated rivalry with the Western Conference team dating back to his days with the Boston Celtics? Why Pacers general manager Kevin Pritchard specifically reached out to the OH squad was unclear but a good bet is Pritchard is interested on acquiring one or two Cavs talents before letting go of George. Feasibly, the Celtics could sign George this year and add another star this summer, which could make George want to sign long term.
Before Cavs fans start worrying about a potentially franchise-altering trade, they should be concerned about the fact that their team barely has a GM right now. Or, they could hold steady, hope George doesn't change his mind, and sign him without trading any assets to the Pacers. The Cavaliers are devoid of the kind of young players and future picks that IN might want IN return for George, and George has never mentioned the Cavaliers as an intriguing destination.
"They're all insane", George recently said of trade rumors involving him. As noted here last week, rumors continue to simmer of James' plans to leave the Cavaliers and play for the Lakers or Clippers to be near his business interests in California.
And for good measure, Magic needs to make clear that the likes of D'Angelo Russell and Julius Randle are on the table too for possible swap deals. Griffin spent this entire season as a bit of a lame duck, and not even James publicly advocating for Griffin to get a new contract could move the needle. "However, Tristan Thompson alone won't be enough to swing a trade to land George even with the Pacers" lack of leverage. The Knicks knew they were Anthony's preferred destination, but the threat of Anthony accepting a deal and extension to another team forced them to give up a core of young players and role players plus a first-round pick, robbing them of needed depth. The two-way wing was drafted 10th overall by the Pacers in 2010.
The risk any team takes is losing him after one season. Considering how many first round picks that Danny Ainge has accumulated, this might be the best offer the Pacers can get.
Aldridge mentions the Wizards best "selling point" for George is joining forces with the explosive backcourt of John Wall and Bradley Beal. Further, George let it be known that he would like to sign with the Lakers in free agency.
George doesn't buy any of them.
There is no mystery to what the Sixers will do with the first pick either as they will take Washington guard Markelle Fultz. It's unlikely the Wizards would be willing to offer any starter besides Porter. He will reportedly opt out of his contract in 2018 and become an unrestricted free agent. Several teams have been brought up in connection with George and whether the Utah Jazz are specifically involved or not, there's no doubt that the repercussions from an impending Paul George trade could very well have an effect on their future as well. You guys talking or teams talking.
