According to Bleacher Report's Jordan Schultz, the Cleveland Cavaliers are no longer in discussions with Indiana about a potential trade, largely due to the fact that the Pacers are not interested in Kevin Love.

Love is the best player that Cleveland is willing to offer Indiana for George, and the two sides had been engaged in trade talks after George told the Pacers that he will lead the team in free agency. With news that the Pacers are not interested in him, the Cavs can likely put any dreams of landing George to bed .
Of course, the other factor in these negotiations may have been that Cleveland parted ways with GM David Griffin on Monday.
George averaged 23.7 points, 6.6 rebounds and 3.3 assists this past season.Back to the NBA Newsfeed
