Paul George has said that he only wants to join the Los Angeles Lakers next summer. But the star forward has a new team — and it’s not the Lakers.

George has been traded to the Boston Celtics. According to reports, Jayson Tatum, who was selected with the third overall pick, Avery Bradley and Jae Crowder are going to the Pacers.

George joins the Celtics, who were the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs this season. However, against the over-matched Cleveland Cavaliers, the Celtics were defeated 4-1 into the off-season.

He’ll be a free agent next off-season. The Celtics hope that they could strike a deal to keep him in Boston and stop him from going to Los Angeles.
