I wish all the stars learn from him, not leave for nothing (murder the original team).

George plans to play out the 2017-18 season with Indiana, but wants to give the organization the chance to plan appropriately for its future – which George told the team won’t include him, league sources said.

Holy Shit. Woj with the Bomb.

As much as I would want to hold on to every asset and not rush to trade for him, I wouldn't risk waiting, tbh. So much can happen in a year. I think if we can find a reasonable deal, we need to make it.

Off the table: #2, Ingram, DLo.

Likely to include: #28, 2020 first?

Take your pick of: JC, Randle, Nance, Zubac.

Honestly, any two of those for me would be acceptable. Randle is going to be due for an extension next year, so maybe him. JC a decent player, but may have limited room to grow compared to the others. Seems like a lot when we have all the leverage, but I'd imagine they'd wait till the deadline instead of take some crappy deal now.

My offer would be JC, #28, future first with heavy protections.

Oh man, this off season may be more exciting than I thought.

This is what you need to show your love to PG:

Randle and Clarkson for PG

Dump Mozgov and Deng right away!! Call Westbrook and Cousins right now!

Clippers can steal George from Lakers within two weeks.

2023 pick/2025 pick/ Blake Griffin for PG, Lance Stephenson and Young.

Lance has signed 4 yrs contracts with Pacers?

Someone on twitter made a great point. The Pacers can't really afford to wait till the deadline. Their 2018 pick gets worst the longer they keep PG on the roster. Trade him now and it likely becomes a lottery pick. Wait till deadline and risk it ending up in the 20s.

Clearly Larry Bird found this information out and promptly stepped down.

I understand the Lakers shloud/will lowball the Pacers if the news are true, but why would the Pacers accept any package that doesn't include, say, Randle?

Guys like JC, Nance and Deng aren't very usefull for a team that goes into rebuilding, no?

depends on what else they're being offered - Boston might be able to put something better together and be in a position to compete now and then hope that's enough to keep PG past next summer but that's a huge risk for them

right now we're talking about a game of blind man's bluff and the Lakers can see their own card as well as the Pacer's card - I'm just hoping Pelinka is an Ari Gold type agent

Re: Paul George Informs Pacers He Will Leave in 2018, Wants To Join Lakers

IMO I really do NOT want to trade for him right now.

1. He already stated he wants to be a Laker
2. If we wait until next off-season we get him for "free"
3. We played the rental game with Dwight and that bit us in the ass
4. There are other top tier FA coming out next summer. He is not the only option for a top player.
5. Yes he is good....Is he any better than a prime Carmelo??..Maybe? Him being a Laker doesnt guarantee jack squat.

That said I would understandable if the Lakers traded for him for next to crap in return.

PG for JC+ 28th pick+ Mosgov (maybe Deng)
Anything else and I want us to wait for next off-season

Re: Paul George Informs Pacers He Will Leave in 2018, Wants To Join Lakers

First off, they're not taking back bad contracts. They would seriously take a first round pick and the cap space then be stuck with a Mosgov or Deng contract.

Second, the only reason I consider adding Randle is because he will be due for an extension and will be expensive to keep next year. I'm iffy about it, but in the end would probably do it if that's what made it happen. Doesn't sound like our FO agrees, which is probably a good thing.

Last, my biggest fear isn't that he gets traded to somewhere he likes his new team. My bigger fear is that he makes an All-NBA team next year and the team could offer a "super max." It's nice that PG says he wants to come. Maybe he passes up $20, $30 million. Does he pass up $60-70 mil?

Anyway, I like the way this is going. No rush from our FO. I don't mind playing the waiting game. Would rather not get him at all than to take any major steps back to get him.
