Well this should throw some water on those Paul George rumors.
According to USA Today’s Sam Amick, George wants to either win a title in Indiana or head home to join the Lakers when he hits free agency after next season.
I repeat: Paul George – barring a title chance in Indy – is hell-bent on heading for Laker Land. This message has been sent throughout NBA.

George grew up in Palmdale, California and played at Fresno State. He can opt out of his contract after next season and has reportedly always been enamored with playing for the Lakers.
That makes a trade by the Celtics that much more difficult, because they don’t want to surrender Nets picks and players from their current roster, only to have George bolt in free agency after next season.
