What should Lakers trade (and not trade) for Paul George?

How much should the Lakers give up in a potential Paul George deal? Richard Mackson/USA TODAY Sports

What should the Los Angeles Lakers be willing to give up in a trade for Indiana Pacers All-Star Paul George?

Answering that question is complicated by the possibility that the Lakers will be able to sign George outright next summer, when he can become an unrestricted free agent. However, if the Lakers don't trade for George, another team almost certainly will make a deal with the Pacers, and the Lakers will then risk George's new team persuading him to re-sign with the promise of an extra year and slightly larger raises.

So, taking that all into account, what picks or players from their current roster should the Lakers be willing to offer?
