Paul George has to be flattered with all of attention revolving around him this offseason; where will he go?
Superstar Paul George’s contract is up next year and the Indiana Pacers need something in return. George wanted to break a lot of records for Indiana and leave a legacy, but Father Time is knocking on everyone’s door. However, we all know his time is up in Indiana after he made a loud statement about joining the Los Angeles Lakers in 2018.
According to Marc Stein of ESPN, Indiana isn’t done searching for key players in the return for George. The Pacers are working on a three-way deal to send George to the Cleveland Cavaliers and Kevin Love to the Denver Nuggets. Denver would be the potential third team if this deal gets done.

This deal would work for the Cavs and Nuggets. Love would fit right in with Denver youth sharpshooters and he can rejuvenate his career, confidence, and all-star status by being the best player on the team, yet again. George to Cleveland will not only give the Golden State Warriors more competition, but LeBron James and George will have some experience playing with each other IF they both decide to sign with the Lakers next year.
In addition, ESPN is reporting that Denver Nuggets big man Kenneth Faried could join George in Cleveland, in one possible version of the deal. However, the Nuggets have also made it clear that big man Nikola Jokic and guard Jamal Murray are off limits.

There were rumors that the Lakers can sign both George and James plus another star in 2018. George is really ring hunting, but who wouldn’t?
Every superstar wants to win a ring and George is one of those few who would love to hold the Bill O’Brien trophy.
