Rumors are already circulating that Paul George will leave the Indiana Pacers in free agency come 2018. The Pacers putting George on the trade market before the recent trade deadline didn’t help the team’s standing with him. A new report suggests Indiana will try to make an impact by going after one specific player George enjoys and wants to play with.
Zach Lowe reported the following:
“George would love to play with hometown (Indiana) boy Gordon Hayward, according to sources.”
The struggles of the Pacers this season proves they need more help and finding a way to acquire Hayward could keep George.
