Wall told ESPN's The Undefeated on Monday that he is recruiting George to push for a trade from the Indiana Pacers to the Wizards in order to challenge LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers for Eastern Conference supremacy.
"I am talking to some guys -- Paul. I know his ultimate goal of where he wants to be. I'm trying to see if we can make something happen," Wall told the website before the NBA awards show.
"Look at our team. We are one piece away. ... (George) is a guy that can guard LeBron and go back at LeBron. It's a piece that you're going to need to win. If you don't have a guy who can do that, you don't have a chance."
Washington was eliminated by the Boston Celtics in a contentious seven-game series in the East semifinals this season. Boston went on to lose to James and Cleveland in five games in the conference finals.
George, a four-time All-Star, has been a hot commodity on the trade market after telling the Pacers he does not intend to sign an extension with the team after next season. Several teams, including the Cavaliers and Celtics, are also rumored to be in the mix for George.
The Palmdale, Calif. native is believed to be highly interested in joining his hometown Los Angeles Lakers after his contract with Indiana is up.
Wall said his friendship with George began in the summer of 2010 when both were drafted, but noted that he is unsure of the chances of a trade between the two teams actually happening.
Indiana and Washington are not currently engaged in trade talks about George, The Undefeated reports.
