Pacers & Jazz Hurt by Paul George & Gordon Hayward All-NBA Snubs

Paul George Gordon Hayward NBA

How does a player qualify for this special exception, which can be offered as a contract extension or as a free agency deal?

New Pacers president Kevin Pritchard, who met with George after the team was eliminated from the playoffs by the Cleveland Cavaliers, told reporters that George expressed an interest in staying long term but made it clear he wanted to be on a contender. The NBA's new new collective bargaining agreement is responsible for the quirk, which allows a team to sign a player on their second contract to a maximum deal above the typical rate for their service time.

Because he didn't make All-NBA this year (or in '14-15), the Pacers can, right now, only offer George a four-year extension (that goes through the '21-22 season) worth about $137 million.

While George still has another year before he needs to make any major decision about his future, the talk continues to rumble on.

George has been previously named third team All-NBA in 2012-13, '13-14 and '15-16. He just finished arguably the best season of his career but didn't land on any of the All-NBA teams when they got announced on Thursday.

If Indiana decides to keep George, there is a way for the Pacers to keep him long-term as the continued face of the franchise. The defending champs might be willing to add George on the Cavs roster if their title repeat quest gets frustrated.

Now, many National Basketball Association analysts expect the Pacers and new GM Kevin Pritchard to consider trading George this upcoming season.

So you can kiss Paul George goodbye - either next summer or this summer. Whether they will be free agents, trade targets, or draft picks - there seems to be many stars interested in the Lakers. Or will he let next season play out?

Should Indiana decide to trade George they will look to take advantage of those fears and start a bidding war, but it will be up to Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka to resist.

"I plan on working out with him and pick his brain a little bit", George said. He's expected to decline it and enter free agency, but we've seen stranger things happen before. However at that point, they run the risk of potentially losing George for nothing - similar to what Kevin Durant did to the Thunder - if he chose to leave money on the table and sign elsewhere. Although he wasn't traded, rumors swirled around George being traded away from the Indiana Pacers.
