Trade Rumors: Butler and George Are Up for Grabs

George reportedly told IN that he plans to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Celtics have a growing confidence they could sign George to a contract extension, and keep him from leaving to his predetermined free-agent destination of the Los Angeles Lakers, league sources told The Vertical. The Cavaliers are one of the few teams in a position to challenge Golden State, and with rumors of a LeBron James departure to Los Angeles in 2018 emerging, they are prepared to give up more than other organizations.

The Pacers will get a mix of young players and draft assets from the Nuggets, but it's unclear which specific players will be included in the package.

The Cleveland Cavaliers may not have a front office in place with the start of free agency just days away, but that hasn't stopped them from attempting to better their roster.

Wojnarowski also noted that if the Celtics can not acquire Hayward, there are plans in place to pursue Blake Griffin and still trade for George.

Turner shares his thoughts on George trade rumors - The Indiana Pacers have one of the best young big men in the National Basketball Association in Myles Turner.

With George making clear his intentions to bolt from IN in free agency next summer, the Pacers front office have no option but to trade their franchise player ahead of the 2017-18 season. If the Celtics successfully get both Hayward and George, it will be one of the biggest free-agent coups in franchise history. It's a piece that you're going to need to win. Jokic was All-Rookie first team last season.

Part of that plan includes the 2017 NBA Draft, and IN used the 18th overall selection on UCLA power forward T.J. George averaged 23.7 points, 6.6 rebounds and 3.3 assists in his seventh season for the Indiana Pacers. George would help out the Cavs next season and if decides to leave after that, that would at least open up cap space for another star. The two-way wing was drafted 10th overall by the Pacers in 2010. He now has the number 18 pick in the first round, but many things could change dependent on offers made prior to their pick, especially ones that may be made for their superstar, Paul George. While teams can put contingencies on draft picks that are traded, they cannot do the same based on a player's actions or decisions.
