This has set a multitude of speculations surrounding George’s availability for teams possibly looking for a rental.

Subsequently, Indiana’s General Manager Kevin Pritchard has seamlessly taken action and has started to engage with teams on a possible George trade.

Moreover, the Cleveland Cavaliers are among some of the teams engaging with the Pacers to possibly acquire the services of George. It’s clear George, who seems to have his heart set on joining the Lakers next season, has plenty of teams who are willing use him as a rental.

As for the Lakers, they are in prime position to acquire George via Free Agency next year and have not been involved in any trade talks to bring in George a year early.
