George's reported informing of the Pacers also allows IN to make appropriate plans over the next year.
The big question is no longer whether George will move from Indianapolis. If what is said is true, and George wants to play for the Lakers, then it would be pointless to use the draft picks in a package to rent a player for the year.
This report doesn't necessarily mean that George is any more likely to sign an extension with the Pacers or remain on the team beyond the summer of 2018.
However, by mentioning that he wants to go to the Lakers, it's unlikely that the Pacers will be able to trade him.
George averaged 23.7 points, 6.6 rebounds and 3.3 assists last season, helping the Pacers reach the playoffs, where they were swept by the Cavs in the first round.

However, over the last few seasons after he's returned from his freak injury he suffered while playing for the US in the Olympics, the team has struggled to get back to it's winning ways. This isn't about titles - it's a marketing play, pure and simple. The news that George was leaving IN next summer all but assured them of landing the superstar, thus accelerating their own rebuilding process. "The best part about it is I'm in the driver's seat".
