Paul George committed to playing for Pacers in 2017-18

Pammachio Corsino | 21 Giugno, 2017, 10:04

George, 27, has averaged 18.1 points and 6.3 rebounds in his seven seasons in the league. The points and assists-per-game averages were single-season career bests for Irving, the starting point guard for the Eastern Conference All-Star team.

As the countdown to the 2017 NBA Draft continues, two win-now teams loom over the biggest story in the sport: Paul George's impending exit from the Indiana Pacers. According to multiple reports, one of those teams vying for George's contract is the Cleveland Cavaliers. With the Russell trade now seemingly completed, the Lakers have updated their offer to the Pacers.

Put it this way: No matter how much Magic Johnson wants George on the Lakers, there's no need for them to trade Julius Randle, D'Angelo Russell, Brandon Ingram or whoever the No. 2 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft becomes if he's going to sign with them in 2018.

But telling local media and fans that he "wants to win" and "be the first to bring a championship" to IN while actually wanting to be IN a completely different location with a team that has averaged 23 wins over the past 4 years will leave an bad taste IN the organization's and Pacers fans' mouths.

Aside from the Cavaliers, rumors also have it George would want a homecoming and the LA native would prefer playing for the Lakers. But other teams know how much George loves the Los Angeles Lakers, his hometown team, and should be wary of chasing a player who could be bound for Hollywood next summer.

As bad as the Los Angles Lakers and Paul George crave a pairing they both must be smart in the process.

Word of George's intentions spread quickly across the league and is sure to solicit inquiries. The Lakers have the cap room and assets to lure George away now but why do it this early? That means Pacers president Kevin Pritchard is going to be quite busy as he explores trade scenarios with several teams including the Cleveland Cavaliers. But that's a lot to give up for a player who could be elsewhere in just one year.

With that out of the way, the question then becomes "what would the Cavs give up to obtain a possible rental superstar?' LeBron James is definitely and obviously off the table, and draft picks from Cleveland are essentially irrelevant as they'll be at the end of the first round for at least the next few years".

Although Paul George won't leave the Indiana Pacers in a fire sale, he's firmly within the Boston Celtics' price range.

Obviously, it would be an unbelievable turn of events if the Warriors really did get serious about adding George to their already potent roster. Overall this is a really bad sign for the Pacers who were inches away from reaching the National Basketball Association finals a few years ago. I'm here. I'm a Pacer.
