Would Paul George be interested in joining Detroit Pistons?

CBSSports.com's Jack Maloney said it could be possible that the Pacers would ask for both point guard Kyrie Irving and power forward Kevin Love in exchange for small forward Paul George, who has informed in of his intentions to opt out and become an unrestricted free agent following the 2017-2018 season.

Sunday afternoon, The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that George informed the organization that he intends to join the Lakers once his current contract is finished. L.A. holds the No. 2 and No. 28 picks in the first round of the draft. The Pacers would be open to that trade because if they don't trade George, he will walk next summer and they would get nothing in return.

On one hand, the Lakers have not offered any indication they would make a deal for George for any of their young players since they would have enough cap space to sign him anyway in 2018.

George has an 18.1 points-per-game average in parts of seven National Basketball Association seasons. He averaged 23.7 points and 6.6 rebounds per game last season and has returned to form following the gruesome leg injury he sustained in 2014 playing with Team USA. Paul George has been open about his intentions to go to Los Angeles as a free agent, while rumors swirl about other big names. According to multiple reports, one of those teams vying for George's contract is the Cleveland Cavaliers. In this week's installment of the Heat mailbag, we took a closer look at George's situation and why it would be risky to trade for him. He now can get George for cheaper than he could have at the trade deadline, which makes the risk worth it. Then, it is uncertain who is the starter they could give up just to make this trade happen.

Russian Federation is also the main ally of the Syrian regime and has significant military assets inside the country. Tensions between regime forces and the coalition in At Tanf are high after several incidents in recent weeks.

According to sources, the Pacers are looking to get a substantial player and picks for George. Miami could pick for IN at No. 14 and send Tyler Johnson, Justise Winslow and Josh McRoberts to the Pacers for George.

Among the other teams that have trade interest with the Pacers on George are the Cavaliers, Rockets, Clippers and Wizards. Everything else is, again, what I've been dealing with.

"I'm absolutely not surprised he said that, " McMillan said, referring to George's definitive answer about this coming season.
