Cavs target George to challenge Warriors dominance

Cavs target George to challenge Warriors dominance

The Pacers obviously weren't interested in what the Nuggets could send them for George, and, according to The Vertical, engaged in serious talks with Boston during the draft about a possible deal. It is nearly certain that a third team would be needed in a trade because the Pacers do not value Kevin Love enough and the Cavaliers do not have the future assets to deal alongside Love. The Nuggets are reportedly willing to trade Wilson Chandler and Emmanuel Mudiay, as well, though a trade never came to fruition because Denver doesn't want to part with Jamal Murray, whom IN attempted to land. IN appears determined to trade their best player ever since he made it known that he doesn't intend to re-sign with the team in 2018 when he becomes a free agent. George has the ability to go at King James on the other end of the floor.

IN has needed to trade George ever since it was reported last week that he informed the team he would not be returning once hitting free agency in 2018.

The Indiana Pacers are taking their time to trade Paul George, but they're still headed that direction.

Anthony has a full no-trade clause in his contract and Knicks president Phil Jackson repeatedly says his desire is to trade the All-Star forward to a team in position to contend for an National Basketball Association title.

"If the Cleveland Cavaliers win a title and dethrone the Warriors, Paul George really has to consider his initial basis of trying to get to LA", Haynes said. Boston's belief that it can make George more than a one-year rental is fueling the franchise's willingness to part with a significant package of assets, league sources said. "We want to get what we want and that's what we pursue".

The Cleveland Cavaliers may not have a front office in place with the start of free agency just days away, but that hasn't stopped them from attempting to better their roster.

George, 27, informed the Pacers on June 17 that he planned to leave the Pacers in 2018 as a free agent, and his preference was to sign a deal with his hometown Los Angeles Lakers. Are you ready for that?

Myles Turner: "Not really". I'm really looking forward to our future. "And I'm ready to lead this young movement".

"He's obviously indicated he doesn't want to stay with the Pacers, which has put them in a bind", Smith said of Paul George.
