The Indiana Pacers discussed a Paul George trade with at least the Boston Celtics, Atlanta Hawks, Philadelphia 76ers and Denver Nuggets at the trade deadline.
The Pacers never appeared serious about actually trading George. According to sources, George has interest in playing with Gordon Hayward, who is from Indiana.
George wants to play for a contender and can be a free agent in 2018.
George has been linked to the Los Angeles Lakers as the place he would like to play if he leaves Indiana.
