George informs Pacers he will leave in 2018

George informs Pacers he will leave in 2018

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, Paul George has told the Indiana Pacers that he plans to leave the team as a free agent in 2018. But if that team is the Lakers - Bird's hated rival from when he played for the Celtics - Indiana may have second thoughts. The Pacers would be open to that trade because if they don't trade George, he will walk next summer and they would get nothing in return. "I'm here. I'm a Pacer", George said (via IndyStar.com).

How much leverage do the Pacers have?

If he does sign with the Lakers in free agency following the 2017-18 season, then George can sign a four-year deal worth up to $130 million. But they would likely have to trade Kevin Love to get him.

After Beal inked a 5-year deal worth $127 million last offseason, it's nearly certain the Wizards wouldn't deal Beal.

Do the Cavaliers have a shot at getting Paul George? Los Angeles will be required dump a salary of Luol Deng or Timofey Mozgov just to take on George's deal.

"The Cavs are willing to enter into trade talks for George without any assurances he will commit to a long-term deal in Cleveland, " a source close to the situation told ESPN.

An NBA trade for George appears impossible for Cleveland at this point. But even if the 2017 edition of this event is again expected to be action-packed, it may prove to be a relatively quiet one for the Indiana Pacers and their star player Paul George.

Paul George is committed to playing for the Indiana Pacers next season. For the playoffs, Love's scoring dipped to 16.8 points, but he had 10.6 rebounds as well as at least a block and steal per game. George is one of the elite two-way players now in the National Basketball Association and getting some sort of return on him would help the franchise quickly retool.

"I'm absolutely not surprised he said that", McMillan said, referring to George's definitive answer about this coming season.

Where do the Lakers fit in all this fiasco? This summer, rumors have surfaced with all sorts of possibilities: IN dealing George to Cleveland for Kevin Love, trading George to the Boston Celtics for the top pick IN next week's draft, even George and LeBron James pairing up with the Lakers after next season.

George clearly wants to be a Laker and waiting a year to sign him into cap space in free agency is the more prudent move.

George, who grew up in Palmdale and idolized former Lakers star Kobe Bryant, offers several qualities that would make his purple and gold uniform glitter.
