Paul George left off all-NBA Team, loses out on $30M

Pacers&apos Paul George addresses Lakers rumours

"Obviously I feel like I should be a first-team player, but it is what it is".

Woj added that he believes the Lakers are being told not to give up any assets in a trade for the Pacers forward because George would want the team to be as good as possible when he arrives.

Unfortunately for the Pacers, George's exclusion from one of this season's All-NBA teams could hurt their ability to lock up the 27-year-old this summer. This new addition makes most people think that Russell Westbrook, who qualifies for the new Super Max contract will stick around in Oklahoma City.

George wasn't the only player to lose out on money from the selections.

This takes away a key advantage for the Indiana Pacers and Utah Jazz when it comes to trying to re-sign their stars.

That means that neither George nor Hayward is eligible for the new "designated player veteran extension" and their teams have less leverage in trying to retain them in free agency.

If he would of made an "All-NBA" team, the Pacers could offer 6-7 million more per season and an extra year. Apparently, the Atlanta Hawks were willing to part with a lot to obtain George earlier this season, but no deal ever came to fruition.

We watched a very similar scenario play out just a few years ago when Dwight Howard made what felt like an inevitable move to the Lakers. That designation would've allowed the Pacers to offer George the richest contract in National Basketball Association history - and add up to five years and approximately $210 million to his contract.

Hayward is in a similar situation as George, except that he has a player option for next season (which he'll need to exercise or decline before July 1). While he hasn't officially announced his intentions, he did reveal plans to workout with Lakers legend Kobe Bryant during an appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Monday night. The Pacers might also be willing to trade George for fear that he wouldn't re-sign with them next summer, essentially losing George with nothing to show for him.

"One team that's interested in free agent point guard Jrue Holdiay?"

If George gets traded to another team - say, the Boston Celtics - he has a better chance of winning now than he would if he joined a rebuilding Lakers team.
