The Chicago Bulls are making a huge comeback this NBA season. With the Jimmy Butler team only behind LeBron James' Cleveland Cavaliers and the Toronto Raptors of DeMar DeRozan, it looks like the decision to sign Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo is paying off. However, the front office seems to have more blockbuster deals set as a Paul George trade is anticipated to be announced soon.
The Indiana Pacers are lagging behind the Detroit Pistons and New York Knicks in the Eastern Conference this year. Despite the remarkable efforts of Paul George to help the team rise in the league, fans feel that the squad would need more than just one superstar leading their players. Amid the concerns over his injuries and missed games this season, experts still believe that a Paul George trade would bring in a lot of potential assets to the Indiana Pacers.
"He's my favorite player in the league," shared Kevin Durant of the Indiana Pacers star. He added, "I've been saying that for a while. Just so smooth, man. He can do it all: pass, rebound, defend, post up, shoot the ball. He's my favorite player."
Rumors point to a number of NBA teams interested in a Paul George trade. These include the Los Angeles Lakers, Golden State Warriors, San Antonio Spurs, and Houston Rockets. However, it looks like the Indiana Pacers are leaning on the entertaining the offer from the Chicago Bulls. Will a Paul George trade help the Taj Gibson team beat the likes of the Cleveland Cavaliers, which has LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, in the NBA?
At this point, no official comment has been given by any of the parties concerned. However, fans of the Chicago Bulls are heavily rooting for a Paul George trade to boost the team up of Dwyane Wade, Rajon Rondo and Jimmy Butler. Although the former Miami Heat and Boston Celtics veterans offer great support to the young leader in the group, the Chicago Bulls would still need another superstar to rise in the rankings. Hence, a Paul George trade would be an ideal setup for Jimmy Butler and his team.
What do you think? Should the Chicago Bulls push for a Paul George trade? Will the Indiana Pacers agree to this deal in the hopes of rebuilding their team?
