The Sporting News is reporting that Paul George has told former teammates that his long-term intention is to play for the Lakers.
George was born and raised in southern California and rumors continue to surface that he wants to return there and play for the Lakers. The Pacers will have to make a difficult decision this summer: If George is unwilling to sign a long-term extension with Indiana, do they trade him for a package of coveted assets, or play out next season and take the chance he leaves via free agency in July fo 2018?

Paul George struggled with his shot during Sunday's 106-102 Game 4 loss to the Cavs, going 5-of-21 from the field on his way to 15 points, seven boards, six assists, three triples, three steals, one block and four turnovers in 44 minutes.

George couldn’t buy a bucket through the first half of action, going just 2-of-10 from the field, and it never really got much better after that. While George will end his 2016-17 campaign on a sour note, he did have a solid series overall, and was absolutely incredible after the All-Star break when he willed Indiana into the postseason with averages of 27.0 points, 3.4 triples, 7.6 boards, 3.9 dimes, 1.6 steals and 3.0 turnovers per contest on 48.3 percent shooting. He’ll be worth an early-round selection in next year’s drafts.

Paul George scored a team-high 36 points during a 119-114 loss to the Cavs in Game 3 on Thursday, adding 15 rebounds, nine assists, one steal and five 3-pointers in 45 minutes.

This is a bad, bad loss for the Pacers. They scored a whopping 74 points in the first half and had a 26-point lead, but the team just had a complete meltdown in the second half. George did not score at all in the third quarter and he was forcing shots in the fourth, but it's hard to blame him for this loss. It's fair to say the odds of Paul George remaining in Indiana long term have decreased after this game. He and the Pacers will look to avoid a sweep on Sunday.

Paul George recently responded to some criticism by outside media insinuating he's a selfish player.

"For them to say I’m a selfish teammate or I don’t think about my teammates or I’m throwing teammates under the bus," said George, "I didn’t say anything bad about my teammates other than what they asked that I think my teammates can do down the stretch to help this team win. I didn’t say anything that was even close to throwing them under the bus." Certain people in the media said that PG-13 was selfish for wanting to take the last shot during Indiana's narrow Game 1 loss to the Cavs, which is beyond ridiculous given how incredible George as been as of late.
Apr 20 - 10:34 AM

Paul George scored 32 points in a 117-112 Game 2 loss to the Cavaliers on Monday.

The Pacers fall to 0-2 in the first round of the playoffs, but the series now shifts to Indiana for Game 3 on Thursday and Game 4 on Sunday. George logged 43 minutes tonight and will likely be over 40+ minutes in every game of this series. He had a couple of vicious dunks tonight and got some nice help from teammates Jeff Teague, Thaddeus Young and Lance Stephenson, but their defense was their downfall tonight. George finished 10-of-20 from the field and 8-of-9 from the line, adding eight rebounds, seven assists, one steal and four triples. He's been on another level for over a month.
Apr 17 - 10:00 PM

Paul George scored 29 points during a 109-108 loss in Cleveland on Saturday, adding five rebounds, seven assists, one steal and six 3-pointers in 41 minutes.

It looked like he was going to put up at least 40 points, but George's first field goal in the fourth quarter didn't come until just 40 seconds were left in the game. The Pacers had the ball down one with 20 seconds left and George was handling the ball on the last possession, but LeBron James came to double and made it very clear they didn't want George to beat them on the last possession. "Anybody but Paul George could take that last one," James said in his post-game interview on ABC. PG-13 gave it up to C.J. Miles, but he couldn't connect to give the Cavs a 1-0 lead. George has been magnificent in March and April, so expect him to have some massive stat lines in this series.
Apr 15 - 5:58 PM

In an interview with the Indianapolis Star, Pacers owner Herb Simon said that the team never seriously considered trading Paul George this season.

Rumors were swirling near the trade deadline about the Pacers possibly moving George, but Simon says they were never close to pulling the trigger on a deal. "Basically, we were offered a lot of things. We didn’t even think of taking any of them. [President] Larry [Bird] will give you a better feel for it, but the answer is you can’t stop people from making offers. But it wasn’t any question of accepting any of them," said Simon. Indy remains committed to building around PG-13.
Apr 14 - 9:46 AM

The Pacers officially punched their ticket to the postseason on Wednesday behind Paul George's 32 points on 12-of-21 shooting, five 3-pointers, 11 rebounds, three assists and one steal.

PG committed just one turnover in 40 minutes and he continues to do it all for the Pacers, who secured the No. 7 seed with tonight's victory. They'll face LeBron James and the reigning-champ Cavaliers in the first round, so George will have to be at his very best to give his team a fighting chance.
Apr 12 - 11:45 PM

Paul George was ejected from Monday's game against the 76ers after a scuffle with Gerald Henderson, finishing with 27 points over 36 minutes.

Henderson threw an elbow at George and the Pacers star was ejected after picking up his second technical foul. It's unlikely he'll face any kind of further disciplinary action following the ejection, so he is expected to be fine for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Hawks, as well as the team's first-round playoff series.
Apr 10 - 9:46 PM

Paul George went off for 37 points in a 127-112 win over the Magic on Saturday.

You think PG-13 wants to make the playoffs? This was George's 13th career game with 37+ points, but five of those games have come within the last 24 days. George shot 14-of-22 from the field and 5-of-7 from the line, adding seven rebounds, six assists and four triples in 40 minutes. Expect George to flirt with 40 minutes again in the final two games of the season as the Pacers try to hold onto their playoff spot.
Apr 8 - 9:04 PM

Paul George scored 23 points during a 104-89 win over the Bucks on Thursday, adding 10 rebounds, one assist, four steals and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

That's two massive wins for the Pacers and now they have a 0.5 game lead over the Heat for the No. 8 seed -- they are tied with the Bulls for the No. 7 seed and do not have the tiebreaker there. The Pacers have a game every other day for the rest of the season with a game in Orlando on Saturday, in Philly on Monday and at home against the Hawks on Wednesday. George is likely going to be playing in all of those as Pacers, and should post big lines in the first two.
Apr 6 - 10:03 PM

Paul George had 35 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals and five 3-pointers to lead the Pacers to a huge 108-90 win over the Raptors on Tuesday.

This one had serious playoff implications, as the loss put the Raptors into a tie with the Wizards in the East, although the Raptors are currently the No. 3 seed due to the tie breaker, while the Pacers leap-frogged the Heat and are currently the No. 8 seed, a 1/2 game up on Miami. PG-13 has been awesome lately and is trying to put his team on his back and lead him into the playoffs. So far, so good.
Apr 4 - 10:58 PM

Paul George scored 19 straight points in overtime on Sunday, finishing a brutal 135-130 loss with 43 points, nine rebounds, nine assists, three steals and one block in 48 minutes.

If you missed this game, go watch the replay on League Pass. George and LeBron traded vicious dunks and basket after basket, as PG did everything he could to keep his team in it. He finished 16-of-33 from the field and 5-of-7 from the line, while knocking down six 3-pointers. It wasn't enough and Indiana's bench was once again a liability, so there's certain to be some soul-searching in Indiana tonight. The loss leaves the Pacers in a virtual tie with Miami for the final spot in the East.
Apr 2 - 10:44 PM

Paul George scored 28 points during a 111-100 loss to the Raptors on Friday, adding nine rebounds, three assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

A bad 34-20 third quarter cost the Pacers in this game, and now they're just 0.5 games ahead of a heating-up Bulls team for the eighth seed. George has been more vocal about getting more shots lately, and it's also reflected on the stat sheet. In his last 11 games, George has a 31.4 usage rate in 37 minutes per game, which tops his 28.3 usage rate in 35.8 minutes per game before the break. Expect George to be very busy to close out this season.
Mar 31 - 9:45 PM

Paul George finished Wednesday's 110-97 road loss with 22 points (8-of-17 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), three 3-pointers, four assists, three rebounds, two steals and two blocks.

George lit into his teammates after Tuesday's loss to the Wolves, saying that his team had "no sense of urgency, no winning pride." He also stated bluntly, "I don't think I got the ball enough down the stretch." He finished with 28.6 percent usage tonight, and it would be surprising if he hits a lower mark than that over Indy's final seven games.
