The Indiana Pacers' shooting-guard Paul George has hinted that he would be temped by a move to the LA Lakers.
George’s rookie contract with the Pacers expires next season, making him a free-agent – although his current side do have the option to equal any offer made by another team that may be interested.
And, although George has said that he is happy in Indiana, he did admit that he would have to contemplate a move away if the Lakers were to make an offer for him.
Speaking to ESPN, he said: “My heart is still in Indiana. I’m still a Pacer, and hopefully I remain a Pacer. I’m happy where I’m at.
“But, of course, it would be tough (to say no to Kobe). You’re talking about playing at home.”
The Pacers will be keen to keep hold of the 24-year-old, who was born in California, though as he has been one of their best players in recent times.
George has made 206 appearances for the Pacers, and managed his best season last year, where he averaged 17.4 points and 7.6 rebounds per game.
