The Indiana Pacers And Cleveland Cavaliers Are Reportedly Discussing Trade For Paul George
The Cavs might be in play to get another weapon to help them combat the Golden State Warriors. According to a report from ESPN, the Indiana Pacers have reached out to the Cavs after a potential Paul George trade after the Pacers superstar forward told the team that he had every intention of going to the Lakers after next season.
After superstar Paul George informed the Pacers in no uncertain terms he plans to leave the team, Indiana began shopping George’s services this weekend, including making a phone call to the Cleveland Cavaliers, sources confirmed to ESPN on Sunday.
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 familiar with the Cavs’ thinking told ESPN. Cleveland is confident its championship culture and overall atmosphere could sway George to want to stay after playing out the 2017-18 season.
Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio provided some more details about the potential trade between the two teams.
