Cavaliers reportedly making deal for George

LeBron James and Dwyane Wade could become teammates next season

LeBron James (23) of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Paul George (13) of the Indiana Pacers look on during Game Four of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals of the 2017 NBA Playoffs on April 23, 2017 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana. Stay tuned for the latest rumblings on a potential Paul George to Lakers trade, Lakers trade news and updates from the National Basketball Association offseason.

It's unclear whether Melo would be an asset to Cleveland, as he doesn't seem to be their top choice. The Nuggets could be the missing link to make such a trade possible, according to ESPN .

In hopes of landing the Indiana Pacers forward, the Cavs reportedly are in search of a third team to assist in the deal, and the Denver Nuggets could be in contention, per ESPN's Marc Stein. They were unable to acquire Kevin Love in the latest trade discussions because a deal couldn't be worked out in enough time ahead of last week's NBA Draft.

Denver reportedly has made Kenneth Faried, Wilson Chandler and Emmanuel Mudiay available. As for the Pacers, the Nuggets would have sent a number of young players and draft picks to IN to complete the trade.

The report did not indicate which players Denver would have given up, but said potential stars Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray were off-limits in any trade.


The Cavaliers eliminated Paul George's Pacers in a first-round sweep this postseason. "We want to get what we want and that's what we're pursing".

"If the Cleveland Cavaliers win a title and dethrone the Warriors, Paul George really has to consider his initial basis of trying to get to LA", Haynes said.

The only blockbuster trade to occur Thursday night was Jimmy Butler traded to Minnesota.

"Everybody thought today was a trigger date because drafts picks were involved, but that doesn't mean you can't do things into the future: future draft picks, players today, young players, older established players", Pritchard told Indiana-based reporters after the draft. We'll keep you posted. It's widely believed that the Celtics, meanwhile, want to sign a marquee free agent this summer, such as Utah's Gordon Hayward, and trade for George.
