Cleveland will need to make home run moves to not only keep up with the Warriors, but to keep LeBron in the city - From The Ringer
On the other side of the ball, with Thompson guarding Irving, Durant would have to guard George, forcing Green to move off his free safety role on Tristan Thompson and guard LeBron.
George more than held his own against LeBron in the first round of the playoffs, averaging 28 points, 8.8 rebounds, 7.3 assists, and 1.8 steals, and he would make the Cavs a much more dangerous team on both sides of the ball.
From a talent perspective, the Cavs would be the big winner in the deal.
The Pacers, meanwhile, would get the certainty of having Love under contract for the next three seasons, while also being able to avoid the long-term rebuilding project they would have to undertake if they moved George for draft picks.
Love has seen the downsides of playing on a superteam, and with a championship already under his belt, he would feel less pressure than George to team up with other elite players.
