Fans Plead for Paul George to Join Lakers
Indiana Pacers guard Paul George is spending the week here training at USA Basketball’s minicamp. And every time he runs into a Los Angeles Lakers fan in Sin City, they’ve had the same message for him:
“ ’Paul, are you coming to L.A.? Let’s get you in L.A.’ That’s all I’ve been hearing since I’ve been out here,” George told Yahoo! Sports after Monday’s practice at USA Basketball minicamp.
Paul will enter the final year of his $3.2 million rookie contract with the Pacers next season.
“Everywhere I go [in L.A.] they say, ‘We want you here. Don’t sign with the Pacers,’ ” George said. “I hear that constantly. It’s getting a little repetitive … but I’m getting used to it.”
