The Portland Trail Blazers attempted to trade for Paul George entering the draft, offering the Indiana Pacers the 15th, 20th and 26th picks along with any player on their roster excluding Damian Lillard, C.J. McCollum and Jusuf Nurkic.
“All three of their first-round picks along with Pritchard's choice of any player off the current roster other than their Big-3," said the source.
George, who can become a free agent in 2018, was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Blazers have historically not been a free agent destination for players of George's caliber, but he would have been teaming up with one of the NBA's best backcourts.
