Paul George Trade Possible, Carmelo Anthony Could Become Option

AP Source: Billups Still Undecided About Joining Cavaliers

In the last seven years draft picks, the Pacers have two current players on their roster, George, who was the 10th pick in the 2010 draft and Myles Turner, who was number 11 in 2015. The team is not expected to re-sign guard Deron Williams which would provide at least one available roster spot.

A team that would suffer if George went to Cleveland is the Los Angeles Lakers, who were hoping to nab George to serve as a leader in their locker room, which is budding with young talent.

Likewise, it was suggested in the report that acquiring George has become a must-do mission for the Cavaliers front office purportedly to convince James to abandon the idea of jumping ship next year. There have been many trade rumors circling the last few days, including sending him to the Cavaliers, Clippers and Rockets. So let's just say Paul George stays for a season. It's IN who's taking the biggest loss IN this potential deal, but that was unavoidable from the moment teams realized they had no other choice. The Spurs are also said to be interested in point guards Derrick Rose and Kyle Lowry. Reprts are surfacing that the Cavs are in heavy talks with the Denver Nuggets and Indiana Pacers that could land them Paul George and Kenneth Faried.

According to the report, Blake Griffin could also be a potential free-agent signing for the Celtics to enable them to then trade for George. However, I would imagine that the Celtics would add more compensation in terms of future first round picks rather than a young player like Brown or Tatum. And with all of those contenders looking to make a splash, the biggest move was made by ... the Minnesota Timberwolves. And who is making trade calls for the Cavs now?




Several teams have big decisions to make - to rebuild or to keep building.

Brian Robb of Boston.com pointed out restricted free agents typically remain with their teams, but he said the Gonzaga product could be an exception because "his $7 million salary cap hold will be a roadblock to signing a max free agent".

"In today's game, if you can't shoot, you ruin your team's offense", he said. Paul George is likely to be only a one year rental, and teams are not willing to give up all that much for a return of only one season, especially in a year the Warriors are set to dominate.
