The Pacers plan to file tampering charges against the Lakers over Paul George, according to NBA writer Peter Vescey.
He adds that Magic Johnson, Rob Pelinka and Jeanie Buss were asked to turn over any correspondence pertaining to George. Johnson did appeal on Jimmy Kimmel and joked about meeting George, so that may be part of the tampering charge. This story is still developing. Aug 20 - 12:28 AM

Russell Westbrook and Paul George have been working out together this week in Los Angeles.

They have been joined by several other Thunder players, including Jerami Grant, Kyle Singler, Semaj Christon and Doug McDermott, at a gym on the UCLA campus. Both Westbrook and George will have to adjust their games and sacrifice a bit offensively next season. Westbrook's record-breaking usage rate will have to come back down to earth a bit. George will also attempt fewer shots playing alongside the league's reigning MVP and leading scorer.

Cavs owner Dan Gilbert said the Pacers could've got more in the Paul George trade with the Thunder.

Wow. The Cavs were reportedly trying to get a deal together with Kevin Love and possibly other pieces for PG-13, but instead the Pacers went with Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis. A report from ESPN said "Indiana backed out" of the possible deal, as well. The PG-13 deal also went down before the Kyrie Irving trade demand, so maybe Gilbert's comments have something to do with that. Whatever the case, this is a very interesting quote from an NBA owner.

The Cavs reportedly nearly pulled off a trade for Paul George, but the Pacers backed out at the last minute.

"Koby Altman was very close to a deal on June 30th for Paul George. It was so close, in fact, that Indiana was about to give permission to Paul George to get on the phone with Dan Gilbert," said Adrian Wojnarowski. "Indiana backed out of it and did the Oklahoma City deal." This report isn't quite as discouraging as the Jimmy Butler rumor because it was the Pacers who ultimately pulled out of the deal, but the Cavs not making any obvious improvements this offseason has to have LeBron James at odds with Cleveland management.

Before the Pacers traded Paul George to OKC, they offered him to the Warriors in exchange for Klay Thompson, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Warriors obviously declined, and the talks died there. Thompson is locked up for two more seasons, whereas George will be an unrestricted free agent next summer. Nonetheless, it's fascinating to think about the lineups the Warriors could have rolled out this season had they acquired PG-13.

In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Paul George says he will definitely consider re-signing with the Thunder if they advance deep into the playoffs.

George reiterates on multiple occasions that winning is his highest priority. For that reason, he's not sold on the Lakers, even though he admits it would be the fulfillment of a childhood dream to play for L.A. "For me, it’s all about winning," said George. "If we get a killer season in Oklahoma, we make the conference finals or upset the Warriors or do something crazy, I’d be dumb to want to leave that."

Paul George has been traded to the Thunder in exchange for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis.

Well, the days of saying Russell Westbrook has no help are officially over. We'll see what Westbrook can do to try and keep PG-13 in OKC, but most signs from earlier this month suggest it'll be a tall order to get George away from the Lakers next year. For the 2017-18 season, George makes a lot of sense next to Westy. PG was actually awesome as a catch-and-shoot guy, posting a 59.9 effective field goal percentage, so Westbrook should be looking to hit him a lot along the 3-point line. George does lose some fantasy value because Westy's super vortex of sucking in usage rate should hurt, but PG should still have early-round value.

Paul George has been traded to the Thunder, according to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.

Kaboom. We're still waiting on the details here, but you can bet we're in for a wild ride.

Houston and Indiana's trade talks focused around Paul George are "generally on hold," a source told Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.

Expect a lot of non-updates on George's future until some clarity is finally received, but this is just another indication that the Pacers aren't quite as far along in the process as their front office would like to have you believe.
Jun 30 - 9:02 PM

Paul George is "still telling friends that he intends to be a Laker in 2018," sources told Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times.

We're going to hear update after update on this front until something happens in regards to George's future, so it's important not to get too worked up about the minutia that comes into play along the way. From the Lakers perspective, Los Angeles has no desire or incentive to give up Lonzo Ball or Brandon Ingram in any potential trade for George's services, so the staring contest is likely to continue for the time being.

Rockets' GM Daryl Morey is trying to bring in another All-Star to play alongside James Harden and Chris Paul, according to sources of Jeff Goodman of ESPN.

While Goodman doesn't name anyone directly in his report, Paul George stands out as one of the more obvious targets out there, and PG-13 has been linked to Houston numerous times in the past couple weeks. PG-13 partnering up with CP3 and Harden in Houston would make that squad an immediate contender out West, so it'll be interesting to see if Morey is able to pull off another blockbuster deal after wooing away Paul from Los Angeles.

The Wizards reportedly have not given up their pursuit of Paul George.

To be clear, the Wizards have almost no shot of creating a deal that will entice the Pacers to part ways with their superstar, but John Wall (who is a good friend of George) is reportedly doing his best to try and recruit PG-13. As of right now, it would appear the Celtics have the best shot of putting together a package that will net them George, but the Wizards, Rockets and Cavs all remain in the running.

According to Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com, a three-team trade that would send Paul George to Cleveland and Kevin Love to Denver is "very unlikely" to happen.

Vardon confirmed an ESPN report that the talks took place, but it sounds like they didn't get very far. The Cavaliers initiated the trade talks, but the Pacers weren't interested in what the Nuggets had to offer -- Kenneth Faried, Wilson Chandler and Emmanuel Mudiay were all mentioned in ESPN's report on Sunday, but the Pacers were probably hoping for a better young prospect and a draft pick(s). George's value on the trade market is declining by the day, so Indiana will be motivated to find him a new home sooner rather than later.

The Cavaliers, Pacers and Nuggets have reportedly discussed a three-team deal that would send Paul George to Cleveland, with Kevin Love going to Denver.

To be clear, nothing is imminent and there's no mention of what Indiana would get in this scenario -- Denver would likely send them a combination of young players and draft picks. It would be a very interesting move from the Nuggets, who acquired Trey Lyles on draft day but could lose Danilo Gallinari in free agency. Chris Haynes reports that Denver would be willing to give up Kenneth Faried in a potential deal, with Wilson Chandler and Emmanuel Mudiay also "available." Stay tuned.

Talks between the Celtics and Pacers about Paul George have "stalled," according to The Vertical.

Celtics writer Gary Washburn previously confirmed talks between the teams, but noted that the " sides are not close." It's unclear what the sticking point is, but Boston has been reluctant in the past to part with any of their first-round picks from the Nets. The deal isn't dead, but this is a far cry from the "serious talks" and "significant momentum" reported an hour ago.
