The question of “What should the Pacers do with Paul George?” has been answered: there’s nothing they can do.

Well, they can trade him; that’s their only option.

If they don’t, they will only keep the four-time All-Star for one more year.

As first reported by The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski, George has told Indiana that he will become a free agent after next season when his contract is up.

Had he been named to an All-NBA team, things could have looked much different for the forward’s future.

Because George didn’t get the nod, he automatically lost out on $75 million, due to the Designated Player Exception which takes effect July 1st, if he were to re-sign with the Pacers.

Since he did not make one of the three All-NBA lists, the figure that would make George the highest paid player in the NBA is off the table.

What motivation other than money does George have to stay in Indiana?
