Boston has maneuvering to do with its roster, including the shedding of salaries to create space to position itself for this scenario.
If Boston can't acquire Hayward, Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin could be a substitute in this free-agency plan to sign a star and then trade for George, league sources told The Vertical. This has put teams like the Boston Celtics in a bit of a holding pattern waiting to hear back from the Pacers.More news: Champions Trophy 2017, England vs Pakistan
That could, in turn, prompt in to make a trade for him soon in order to ensure they are able to gain something in return even in losing George.
The Pacers are fielding trade offers for Paul George. He has already informed the team he intends to leave when his current contract expires in one year, and the whole world knows the Los Angeles Lakers intrigue him.
Considering George might be seen as a one-year rental before he hits free agency next July, it's highly unlikely that IN will receive that much IN return.
