Lakers won't give up number two pick, Brandon Ingram for Paul George

20 June 2017

Both had their names pop up in trade rumors as the Lakers could use the No. 2 pick on UCLA point guard, Lonzo Ball.

Media experts are saying the Lakers need to make a move quickly.

Philadelphia recently hosted Fultz and are big fans of what he could provide to their young, rebuilding roster, which made the deal a no-brainer for them according to Kevin O'Connor of the Ringer. However, if the Lakers come calling the Pacers may ask for the house including the kitchen sink.

Things could change before the draft on Thursday, but for now, the Lakers will be picking second and 28th. The Lakers resisted trading away their young assets before the February 21 trade deadline, mindful that acquiring George then could come at the expense of nurturing a growing roster around him.

Wizards small forward Otto Porter also had his best season and would nearly certainly have to be in a potential George deal for it to make any sense for in, but he's a restricted free agent and would lose tens of millions of dollars if he agreed to a sign-and-trade deal with anyone this summer (fewer years, smaller yearly raises) instead of re-signing with Washington. George is committed to playing for the Pacers next season.

"I am a Pacer". George is still under contract with the Pacers for 2017-18 but his intentions following this season have been made abundantly clear.

Cleveland could offer championship-caliber play, which could help sway his decision to re-sign with the team once his contract elapses at the end of next season. Giving the Pacers a heads-up about how you plan to not sign with them so that they can scramble to find a solution doesn't seem that helpful for the team, but it's certainly better than George leaving them for nothing.

For Kevin Pritchard, this is nothing but good news. And George has a close relationship with Lakers associate coach Brian Shaw after the pair worked together in IN (2011-13).

Monday on The Jose Show, Joe and co host Zach Krantz debated whether the Miami Heat should make a trade offer to the Indiana Pacers for forward Paul George.

This could be a huge boon to the Lakers for their rebuild. If they are able to sign George, they would instantly become a much more attractive landing spot for other free agents. Just imagine what he might be capable of when added to a lineup featuring Kyrie Irving and LeBron James, both of whom don't mind dishing to another hot scorer needed to win National Basketball Association titles.

Yahoo Sports said No.13, Paul George, is hoping to head home to California to play for the Los Angeles Lakers. Either way, the Pacers have a lot to think about and the battle for Paul George is only getting started.
