Paul George’s Tenure in Indiana Coming to an End

Paul George is tired of losing and wants to go play for the Los Angeles Lakers.

Makes perfect sense, right?

This afternoon, news broke that All-Star forward Paul George has informed the Indiana Pacers that he plans on entering free agency following next season and is subsequently looking to take his talents elsewhere – preferably to the Los Angeles Lakers according to league sources.

Despite not requesting a trade, George is set on opting out of his 2018-19 contact, and has had his agent, Aaron Mintz, tell new Indiana president of basketball operations Kevin Pritchard of his intensions., to spare the franchise any confusion.

Sources have told The Vertical that Pritchard has already began aggressively pursuing a trades for George, but has apparently not received any engagement from the Lakers who are not looking at dealing away any member of their young core.

One of the teams that have engaged in conversation with the Pacers are the Cleveland Cavaliers who view George as a potential “one-year rental” player, but their void of young talent and valuable trade chips makes the chances of any trade between both sides seem bleak.

 

George, a California-native is 27-years old and is coming off a season in which he has averaged 23.7-points, 6.6-rebounds, and 3.3-assists per game.

The Pacers’ inability to maintain a contending roster has clearly helped make up George’s mind as now the waiting game begins as the NBA world awaits either for the Pacers to pull the trigger on a trade or for George to walk out on his own terms next offseason.
