Rockets Rumors: Chris Paul Has "Legitimate Interest" In Signing With Houston

IN is adamant on receiving young players and future draft picks, which are both things that Boston has plenty. It quickly became apparent that a third team would need to become involved if a move were to take place. Most of the league assumes that he wants to play for the Los Angeles Lakers, who appear to be in a tug-of-war with the rival Celtics for George's attention. The Cavaliers are obviously in contending form, with all stars Lebron James and Kyrie Irving, but with a two way presence of Paul George, and an extra rim presence that could cover someone like a Draymond Green, would a legitimate National Basketball Association finals run sway Paul George's hometown desires? The Spurs are reportedly interested in trading Aldridge but that could give them more space to sign a few other players. He has also been one of the team's bright spots outside of George, during its disappointing run in the playoffs this past season.

However, the Celtics believe they can sway him away from putting together a roster worthy of dethroning the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference.

The elite point guards available - Chris Paul and Kyle Lowry - should have no trouble finding significant contracts.

But Pritchard also expressed confidence in the same interview that the Pacers would find a palatable George deal in the near future, saying: "We have to look at every scenario".

Can a starting five of James, Kyrie Irving, Anthony, Wade and George work?

"That's what happened with Kris Dunn and that's why Minnesota was so willing to trade a guy they'd coveted a year ago". And who is making trade calls for the Cavs now?

With all the trade chatter surrounding Paul George the past couple of weeks, the Indiana Pacers are believed to be facing a hard situation, especially if their franchise player and leader will ultimately be dealt.

Several teams have big decisions to make - to rebuild or to keep building.

As valuable as Olynyk has been as a rotational piece of Boston's frontcourt in recent seasons, he isn't worth being a roadblock to potentially adding an impact piece such as Hayward to the team.

For salary-cap purposes, Boston wants a Hayward commitment before it can finalize a trade for George and secure the most dynamic free-agent coup in franchise history, league sources said. Which players would you like to see your team sign?
