Paul George is one of the top 15 players in the league, and after another 1st round exit, many rumors talking about his next destination.
Lakers 2017-18 will officially be in their 1st year of rebuilding with new Owner Jeanie Buss, New Front office Pelinka / Magic and 2nd-year coach Luke. Los Angeles Lakers always had a superstar, but after Kobe Bryant they just have young players and few veterans.
Magic Johnson wants to bring a superstar, but players like LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and Russell Westbrook are untouchable, so Paul George is the first on the list.
A SoCal native, he’s been talking about playing for his hometown team, the Lakers, for a long time. He’s never made his long-term intentions a secret within the Pacers’ locker room, according to former teammates. He wants to wear the purple and gold.
This summer will be very interesting for Los Angeles Lakers. They will get a top pick and they already have young players like Russell, Randle, Ingram and Clarkson. Maybe Paul George will not be the only superstar in the LA for the next season.
