The New Orleans Pelicans are pulling all the strings as they are now trying to make another move that will surely put their team on notice. Paul George has been involved in multiple trade talks and joining Pelicans might be the best for him.

NBA teams and their executives are currently working out their roster but the time is not on their side. Right now, they have at least 3 days to finalize their deals or the deal will be scrap. There are multiple teams who made their proposals already and the approval from the other team is what they’re waiting for. There are no guarantees with regards to dealing and stealing some players.It could either help the team or destroy their chemistry.

Paul George On Trading Block

Apparently, the multiple All-Star from Indiana Pacers, Paul George is again involved in a blockbuster deal. For recent weeks, Paul George has been open about him being traded. He mentioned on one of his interviews that he wants to play where he has a chance of winning it all. He also added that if Indiana Pacers will add some big names that can help their team, then there will be no reason to move on. During the offseason, Pacers acquired All-Star Jeff Teague from Atlanta Hawks and Thaddeus Young from Brooklyn Nets. However, basing on their current numbers, it seems that they are under-performing considering they’ve acquired those two players.

Paul George To Pelicans

The trade proposal for Paul George is structured like this. Jrue Holiday, Terrence Jones and a draft pick will be sent to Indiana Pacers in exchange to Paul George. The proposed trade is somehow misleading as one of the executives in New Orleans Pelicans stated that Jrue Holiday will be resigned and won’t go anywhere. The only thing confirmed right now is Terrence Jones. Since the Pelicans acquired Demarcus Cousins, there’s a great possibility than Terrence Jones’ playing time will be affected.
