Paul George Wants To Be A Laker, might be a Cav

Indiana Pacer fans, I’m sorry to tell you, Paul George wants to be a Laker. Lakers fans, I’m sorry to tell you, it looks like he might end up in Cleveland.

Larry Bird is sitting in the dark room somewhere right now, laughing to himself, and maybe petting a fluffy white cat.

Paul George is a Southern California guy. So, this makes sense for him to want to be a Laker. He wants to make a big “homecoming” move. That’s what’s hot in the streets right now. A Paul George / Lonzo Ball combo could be pretty sweet to watch.

But, a Paul George / LeBron James combo could be sweet too. forward Paul George has informed the Indiana Pacers that he plans to become a free agent in the summer of 2018 and will leave the franchise – preferably for the Los Angeles Lakers, league sources told The Vertical.

George hasn’t requested a trade before he can opt out of his 2018-19 contract, but did have his agent, Aaron Mintz, tell new Indiana president of basketball operations Kevin Pritchard that he wanted to be forthright on his plans and spare the franchise any confusion about his intentions, league sources told The Vertical.

George can sign a four-year deal worth as much as $130 million with Los Angeles next year. George is a Southern California native and playing for the Lakers would represent a homecoming for him. 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.”

Paul George is going to look good in the purple and gold.
