Sources: Cavaliers and Pacers Talking Paul George Trade?

on

After superstar Paul George informed the Pacers in no uncertain terms he plans to leave the team, Indiana began shopping George’s services this weekend, including making a phone call to the Cleveland Cavaliers, sources confirmed to ESPN on Sunday.

George reportedly told the Pacers he will opt out of his contract in 2018 and become an unrestricted free agent.

The Cavs are willing to enter into trade talks for George without any assurances he will commit to a long-term deal in Cleveland, a source familiar with the Cavs’ thinking told ESPN. Cleveland is confident its championship culture and overall atmosphere could sway George to want to stay after playing out the 2017-18 season.
