REPORT: Clippers Interested In Sign & Trade For Paul George In Hopes Of Keeping Him Away From Lakers
The Clippers are sick and tired of being the red-headed step-child in Los Angeles and they plan to do something about it.
In an effort to hopefully keep Indiana Pacers star Paul George away from the Los Angeles Lakers, the Clippers are interested in a potential sign & trade to land George.
“Sean Deveney of Sporting News reported the Clippers have expressed interest in George via potential sign-and-trade. Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and J.J. Redick are set to become free agents this summer and could be sign-and-trade eligible, depending on the parameters of the deal.
The odds of this happening, of course, are highly unlikely. Adding George at the expense of Griffin or Paul would not make the Clippers any closer to unseating the Golden State Warriors out West. That would make Redick the only feasible sign-and-trade player for George, and there is no fathomable scenario in which that type of deal goes down.”
After yet another season of not making it to the Western Conference Finals, the Clippers are staring down a serious makeover for an underachieving team.
