Lakers offer Clarkson or Randle plus 27th, 28th picks for Paul George

According to Ric Bucher, the Pacers thought they could get some leverage by putting the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers in a bidding war against each other.

NBA.com's David Aldridge revealed in his Monday Morning Tip that the Washington Wizards are trying to find a way to acquire NBA superstar Paul George in a trade.

With the star forward informing IN that he intends to depart after the 2017-18 season, there's little incentive for the Pacers to wait on a trade.

Here are five potentially sensible destinations for George - and why such a deal may or may not happen. "The Lakers aren't giving them Brandon Ingram".

Pacers President of Basketball Operations Kevin Pritchard - who only came into the job earlier this offseason, after Larry Bird chose to step down - will face a hard set of negotiations, given his lack of leverage due to George's contract status and stated desire to go to Los Angeles. George is very good, but for L.A.'s sake, that may not be the best move.

"I think what's realistic is the Lakers say to them "we will give you some combination of Clarkson and Randle".

The "Big Three" must stay in tact, which leads to my next point.

His take is that the team will indeed draft Lonzo Ball, but that doesn't necessarily mean the end for D'Angelo Russell. He'll probably love playing for Brad Stevens.

Danny Ainge has stocked up enough assets to have the more enticing deal for IN, but they might be scared off due to George'a fascination of heading home. That is why the Lakers should strongly consider making a move for Paul George one season early.

"Instead of needing to open up the space to sign George outright, there'd be a smaller cap hold in place until he's actually signed". It won't be surprising if the Pacers trade Paul George soon as he will be one of the top trade targets this offseason. According to Joe Vardon of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Cleveland is working with the Suns to be that third team. The newspaper also reported that multiple Cavs players, including stars LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, have reached out to Butler to gauge his interest. There is no doubt in my mind it is the first option.

It was known that Anthony would leave the Denver Nuggets in free agency.

That's the risk the Lakers are running by just ... it's one thing for Paul George right now to believe he's going to the Lakers. Unlike other squads in the National Basketball Association, the Cavs are running low on draft picks.
