George will become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, and though it was long believed he was a lock to sign with the Lakers, that no longer appears to be the case. Los Angeles is planning to recruit George after multiple reports have indicated that he is interested in potentially signing with the team. George wrapped up one season with the Oklahoma City Thunder after spending the first seven years of his career with the Indiana Pacers.
It sounds as if George, on the other hand, will get an elaborate pitch from the Lakers - also a rumored landing spot for James - that includes a poetic ode to playing for the team near his hometown of Palmdale, Calif. Ahead of his pending free agency, an apparent Lakers recruiting pitch was leaked to Sports Illustrated'sRobin Lundberg and it features a voiceover the Lakers plan on using with video.
