Multiple sources confirm to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin the Indiana Pacers have reached out to the Cleveland Cavaliers over the weekend to gauge their interest in a potential Paul George deal.

The talks were first reported by The Vertical, which also reported that George told the Pacers that he will not re-sign with the club after next season and would prefer to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers when he is a free agent in 2018.

Although George would constitute a significant acquisition for Los Angeles, the rebuilding Lakers do not currently intend to part with any of their young assets in a trade with the Pacers, sources told ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne.
