Paul George Reportedly Told Teammates He Wants To Play For Lakers

The 2017 postseason, specifically the first round sweep the Indiana Pacers suffered at the hands of the Cleveland Cavaliers, probably did not do a lot about Paul George’s reputation. However, PG13 is expected to have suitors with Magic Johnson not even attempting to hide his intention to recruit George to LA.

According to reports, the feeling is mutual. Via Sporting News’ Mitch Lawrence:

A SoCal native, he’s been talking about playing for his hometown team, the Lakers, for a long time. He’s never made his long-term intentions a secret within the Pacers’ locker room, according to former teammates. He wants to wear the purple and gold.

Did George say he dreamed of playing for the Lakers growing up? Did he say it’d be cool to join his boyhood favorite team if the situation presented itself? Or did he say he wanted to get the heck out of Indiana to join the Lakers as soon as possible?

There are so many ways his comments to teammates could get misconstrued as they get passed down in the game of telephone.

But the Lakers threat – to whatever degree it’s real – looms, and it’ll impact how the Pacers handle their offseason.
