NBA News: Paul George Discusses Upcoming Free Agency, Lakers

NBA: Indiana Pacers at Los Angeles Lakers

Everyone is already talking about next summer when the Los Angeles Lakers have ample cap room to possibly sign two superstars.

One free agent that will heavily be mentioned is current Pacer and Southern California native, Paul George. Although he is a restricted free agent and it’s highly likely that the Pacers will match any offers, George remains a free agent target for the Lakers.

George is currently working out in Los Angeles and spent some time with Colin Cowherd on ESPN 710AM to discuss his upcoming free agency and the possibilities of joining the Lakers:

“Well, I’m still in Indiana. Just trying to bypass all the rumors and all the media trying to blow up stuff. My heart is still in Indiana. I’m still a Pacer and hopefully I’ll remain a Pacer.”

When asked if it would be difficult saying “no” to Kobe Bryant, George discussed how Los Angeles would be an ideal situation because of his family and growing up in California:

“Of course it’d be tough. You’re talking about playing at home, playing in LA where your family — that’s what your family grew up on. It’d be big as far as it being the family favorite team. But again, it’s about me and my career. I think where I’m at will do the job for me.”

Despite acknowledging that joining the Lakers would be ideal, it appears that George is extremely loyal and comfortable with the Pacers. He believes the team has enough to compete for championships and his first priority is to remain with the Pacers.

Although it sounds like George will remain with the Pacers, a lot can change from now to next summer. Regardless of what happens, the Lakers will still pursue him and hope he can be the future franchise player after Kobe Bryant decides to retire.

This past season, Paul George was named the Most Improved Player as he averaged 17.4 points, 7.6 rebounds, and 4.1 assists.
