Cavs, Pacers and Nuggets engaged in George-Love trade talks

Cavs, Pacers and Nuggets engaged in George-Love trade talks

Despite reports that indicated the Cleveland Cavaliers were out of the Paul George sweepstakes, the Eastern Conference champs aren't giving up just yet. However, ESPN just reported news that there was nearly a trade for George in the week of the #2017 Nba Draft - one with the #Cleveland Cavaliers. According to ESPN, the Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets, and San Antonio Spurs also looked into a possible George acquisition prior to the draft.

According to the reporters, the Cavs, Pacers and Denver Nuggets have discussed a three-way trade that would see George in Cleveland and Kevin Love in Denver.

In one version of the potential three-team swap, Faried would be Cleveland-bound, league sources told ESPN.

Also, the Nuggets are targeting Blake Griffin and Paul Millsap in free agency.

Anthony has a full no-trade clause in his contract and Knicks president Phil Jackson repeatedly says his desire is to trade the All-Star forward to a team in position to contend for an National Basketball Association title.

The Cavaliers eliminated Paul George's Pacers in a first-round sweep this postseason.

The four-time All-Star reportedly has informed the team he will leave IN in free agency next summer, with the Los Angeles Lakers as his preferred destination.

Denver reportedly has made Kenneth Faried, Wilson Chandler and Emmanuel Mudiay available. "We want to get what we want and that's what we pursue".

Stein said that the Lakers "remain determined" to acquire George despite losing the opportunity of using their draft picks as trade fodder.

The Cavaliers reportedly were in talks with the Bulls for Jimmy Butler before Chicago dealt the All-Star guard to Minnesota on a draft-day trade. For the Pacers, that should be the end of trade talks. We'll keep you posted.
