Lakers Podcast: Should Magic Johnson have tried harder to trade for Paul George?

Or did the team make the right decision in not pushing harder for PG?

NBA: Indiana Pacers at Los Angeles Lakers Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers did not trade for Indiana Pacers All-Star forward Paul George before the NBA trade deadline, despite numerous whispers and reports of his interest in a homecoming.

Should the team have pushed harder, or put more assets on the table in an attempt to entice Indiana to make a deal? Or did the Lakers make the right decision in exercising patience with their young core, and possibly hoping to lure George in free agency, or deal for him this summer? Hosts Harrison Faigen and Anthony Irwin discussed all that and more on the latest episode of Locked on Lakers.
