According to Jason Quick of CSNNW, the Blazers recent offer for Paul George is underwhelming for the Pacers.
The Blazers seem willing to add significant firepower to their core of Damian Lillard, C.J. McCollum and Jusuf Nurkic but so far there is no traction on a deal. Due to last summer’s free agency spree, the Blazers find themselves over the cap and need to make a trade to bring in talent rather than using free agency. The Pacers likely do not find a mix of Allen Crabbe, Evan Turner and Moe Harkless plus a first-round pick or two from this year to be enough to trade George for.
