Hell-bent as he is on signing with the Lakers, George – according to a person with knowledge of his situation – is also the kind of prudent professional who won’t close a window of opportunity prematurely. So if the Cavs can convince Pritchard to either take on four-time All-Star forward Kevin Love or send him to a third team in exchange for more suitable assets, then George will play his heart out alongside LeBron James and remain open to the idea of re-signing next summer if James were also to return (or, perhaps, George could leave for Los Angeles with James at his side).

Former Cavaliers general manager David Griffin left for his successors potential trades to bring either Chicago’s Jimmy Butler or Indiana’s Paul George to the team, sources told cleveland.com, and one or more deals Griffin constructed could happen without him. In either case, a third team would be involved and would take All-Star forward Kevin Love in exchange for the mix of picks and role players the Bulls and Pacers seek to rebuild in the event they choose to deal their franchise player.

Ian Begley: Jeff Hornacek says one of the Knicks’ goals this season is to see steady improvement over 82 games: “What we stressed to these guys is that we’re going to continue to work every day no matter what happens. We’re going to try to improve. We’re going to have ups and downs but in the long run if we stay together, continue to work and we try to fix those things — they may not be incremental jumps but if you have little jumps throughout all 82 games you’re going to be a much better team at the end of the year than you are now. So that’s really the goal.”
