George informs Pacers he will leave in 2018

Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Kevin Pritchard is actively shopping Paul George to multiple teams to test the rental market, including the Cleveland Cavaliers. For starters, he is as tall as a tower, but he has also been a big presence regarding his ability. They did just that previous year adding Jeff Teague and Thad Young, but the team continued to struggle and more was needed. IN may be hoping that he does not go anywhere anytime soon. Had he landed on one of those teams, he could have been offered a five-year, $207 million deal by the Pacers via the Designated Player Veteran Exception. After that, nothing has been made clear. The current CBA makes that contract only available to George under a narrow set of circumstances, and only from the Pacers. "I am under contract and I intend to play", he said while sitting in the first base dugout. His straight forward answer raised many eyebrows. Sure, playing out this season could still end in making the playoffs and having a winning record, but what does that do?

KD had his way and now has a ring so George might want to follow suit. He is no rookie trying to make a name for himself. "But any good player is going to have attention on him at all times, and I'm pretty used to it by now". And outside of Turner, the Pacers don't have any notable young talent. After finding out his intentions, Lakers President for Basketball Operations, Magic Johnson, was obviously pleased, as his team is very likely pursue the four-time All-Star forward next year. It will be revealed if he holds his promise by then.

Furthermore, given how unpredictable draft night can be, there is always a chance that other teams could start to show interest in George in the aftermath of it. That does happen. Kawhi Leonard sprained his ankle in Game 1 against Golden State, and his San Antonio Spurs were swept in the Western Conference Finals. The Pacers, under the previous regime of Larry Bird, had tried to move George prior to February's 2017 NBA Trade Deadline but were reportedly unhappy with the offers on the table. Will the Pacers have to cough up serious cash?
