In their attempt to offer a package to Indiana for Paul George, the Lakers came knocking on the Kings' door.
Unfortunately for Los Angeles, the Kings weren't interested in what they had to offer.
According to TNT, the Lakers offered the No. 2 pick to the Kings for the No. 5 and No. 10 picks.
The Kings reportedly rejected the offer.
The Lakers' plan appearantly was to take one of the two picks acquired from the Kings, package it with the No. 27 and No. 28 picks they owned and a player on their roster in an offer for George.
It appears they'll have to find a different avenue to get George to LA.
Lakers, per sources, engaged Sacramento in talks that would have sent the 2nd pick to the Kings for Sac's two 1st-rounders (5 and 10) (1/2)— David Aldridge (@daldridgetnt) June 21, 2017
Lakers would have then packaged one of the Kings' picks w/27 & 28 along w/player in offer to Indy for Paul George. But Kings said no (2/2).— David Aldridge (@daldridgetnt) June 21, 2017
