I think much of this hypothetical scenario, which I can certainly see happening at least insofar as George to LA is concerned, will be largely contingent on how well Cousins recovers from his ruptured achilles tendon injury, if he does, at all, as guys just are never the same after suffering such an ailment.
I mean, Cousins was already a mediocre defender, at best, prior to the injury, so I can't exactly see it helping his case, moving forward, making that potential Lakers team just awful on defense, George and KCP, I guess, and, to a certain extent, Lonzo, notwithstanding, of course, which kind of leaves George in the same situation in which he currently finds himself on the Thunder in being the only guy who plays any defense.
Personally, and while I know that this will never happen, I think that George should return to Indiana. Imagine a Pacers team with a starting lineup of Stephenson, Oladipo, George, Young (I guess, although this position really needs to be upgraded. Like significantly), and Turner, with guys like Bogdanovic and Sabonis coming off of the bench, for, well, starters. Is that team not a contender, at the absolute minimum, because I think that they could win it all, but I'm weird
