Paul George to leave Pacers following 2017 season, source says

Paul George to leave Pacers following 2017 season, source says

There's a rental market, but how robust? George has emphasized that despite his plans, he will still be playing with all his might for Indiana Pacers because he is still under contract and for now, he is a Pacer. That's all that needs to really be known. "I've been dealing with this since last season, but I'm just living in the moment". "They'll be at the bargaining table because they're always at the bargaining table, but much like the Lakers, they needn't bend over backward to accommodate the Pacers' asking price".

For the latest podcast episode, I spoke with Trevor Lane of Lakers Nation about everything surrounding the team right now.

He reiterated his desire to win a championship with the Pacers and said he and president of basketball operations Kevin Pritchard are on the same page. Already reportedly involved in discussions with the Indiana Pacers for Paul George, the Lakers have apparently offered two first-round picks (27th and 28th overall) as well as either Jordan Clarkson or Julius Randle to the Pacers in exchange for the All-Star forward.

However, similar to the Knicks, the Lakers also face outside threats.

Cleveland on the other hand is going to be making changes and they might be the only trade option if the Los Angeles Lakers decide to hold off for now.

They seemed to offer her a cushion to do something she rarely does: change her mind after weeks of vowing no early poll. They'll be hoping to influence the government's plans for Northern Ireland, and to get a better deal for people there.

However, there is always the possibility that a team could trade for George, and then convince him to stay instead of heading out west to join the Lakers.

Home, sweet home! That's what Paul George is likely thinking now. The only sure thing is that under new management, the Lakers are going to be aggressive in completing trade or deals that will make them better.

But if George does leave the Pacers, it will be a costly financial decision.

George has been named third team All-NBA three times, but failed to make an All-League team in 2016-17, which would have allowed the Pacers to offer him a five-year, $207 million Designated Player Veteran Exception. The former is hard. My prediction is that George is a Laker before Thursday, but what the Lakers have to give up in the process remains to be seen.

Earlier today, news came out of IN that All-Star forward Paul George's camp has informed the team that George does not intend to re-sign with them next off-season and his preference is to come home and play for the purple and gold IN 2018.
