Pacers forward Paul George has been the subject of trade talks involving a handful of teams recently. Despite offers to the Indiana Pacers for the superstar from the Boston Celtics, the Denver Nuggets and others, George is reportedly interested in one team and one team only, if he has a say in the matter:
I repeat: Paul George – barring a title chance in Indy – is hell-bent on heading for Laker Land. This message has been sent throughout NBA.

The Pacers have struggled the last couple seasons, and George either wants to win now or be traded to his hometown Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers have reportedly reached out to the Pacers to inquire about George, but the two sides have yet to get a deal done.
Still, as the NBA trade deadline looms, it would certainly come as no surprise if the recently appointed Lakers President, Magic Johnson, continues to shake things up for the Lakers and winds up agreeing to a blockbuster deal involving George.
