This is actually one of the worst trades. Especially when the lakers don't want to trade any of the young core you decide to trade all except Nance Jr.

Paul George wants the team to have Russell, Randle, and Ingram on it plus the #2 pick. He want to come to a team already in place. Which is why your hearing the Lakers aren't looking to make a move for him. If the Pacers accepted say Clarkson and Deng for him that's different but the Lakers would be taking a risk if they include the guys George actually wants on the roster.

City: I disagree, just because a player has the same agents as two other players does not mean they want to play with them. Kobe and Boozer shared Rob Pelinka, but they weren't dying to play together. Until it's publicly stated, I'm going to doubt that statement.

Magic has the respect of George and he wants to be in LA. Jeanie wants a star for the all star game next year and none of the current players will make it. If George wants to win, he's not going to do it anytime soon with Randle and Russell still "maturing". You'll probably be able to get rid of Deng's contract if Russell is attatched to any deal. With Lonzo possibly coming and Ingram untradeable, SG is open for George unless you prefer the Lakers keep the second pick, Russell, Ingram, Randle and then have George play center (sarcasm)

GM: Paul George and Julius Randle have been working out together. He also knows D'Angelo Russell. So being represented by the same agent helps. Yes Magic Johnson wants Paul George in LA but there is also a risk just like if the Cavaliers traded for him there would be a risk there as well. If the Lakers trade 2 to 3 assets for a free agent George there is no guarantees he stays aka Dwight Howard. To say "Lakers aren't going to win anytime soon with Russell on the same team as Paul George" that's just crazy. Randle has been improving this summer. It's better to have them there. PG staying would require players to come to the Lakers. These allstar players need to see a team around Paul George otherwise they will look just like the Pacers and get bounced in the first round.
