After Paul George informed the Indiana Pacers that he will not be resigning with the team after his contract expires in 2018, Pacers team president Kevin Pritchard has began the process of evaluating the market for a possible trade involving the 27-year-old forward.

The rumors continue to swirl, as it has been reported that Indiana has discussed a three-team trade with the Denver Nuggets and Cleveland Cavaliers.

As Stein reports, the potential trade would send George to the Cavaliers, and Kevin Love to the Nuggets. This would only mean that the Pacers would receive a viable asset from Denver, such as the likes of Jamal Murray, Gary Harris, or Danilo Gallinari — just to name a few pieces that have a real possibility of being moved in the case of any trade.

The exact details of the trade are unknown as of right now, as with the progression of the talks between the three teams. If Pritchard can get the Nuggets to trade any younger talents to pair with Myles Turner moving forward, he should very well accept the deal and not look back.

Be sure to continue to follow closely as more information comes out regarding the talks between the three teams.
