The 6-foot-4 shooting guard will also be a bigger part of the offense in IN than he was with the Thunder, and don't be surprised if he averaged 15 FGA and 18 PPG while playing for Nate McMillan and the Pacers in 2017-18.
While George has said he would like to play for the Los Angeles Lakers, other clubs are hoping he might join them first, including, according to several USA media reports, the Cleveland Cavaliers. In return, the Pacers receive Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis.
