The Denver Nuggets made an aggressive offer to the Indiana Pacers at the deadline for Paul George.
The Nuggets recruited a third team in the talks but were hesitant to part with Jamal Murray for George. Murray has been one of the most promising rookies of the 2016 draft class.
Denver was also reportedly informed that George is most interested in either re-signing with the Pacers or joining the Los Angeles Lakers in 2018.
The Nuggets made Nikola Jokic completely untouchable.
Denver was similarly aggressive in landing a star during the 2016 offseason.
