REPORT: Golden State Warriors Plan to Make a Run at Paul George in 2018
What does a team with two former MVPs and two championships in the past three years need? Another star of course!
“As far as everyone else is concerned, the Oklahoma City Thunder are renting Paul George this coming season. So we already know multiple teams will be lining up to pitch George next summer, most notably the Los Angeles Lakers, but also the Golden State Warriors, according to Tim Kawakami of The Athletic.
Kawakami joined Tim Bontemps on a podcast this week, and said he believes the Warriors will try and make a run at George next summer, adding that Warriors owner Joe Lacob “is going to try and find a way.”
Unless George wants to take a massive pay cut, the Warriors are looking to lose a few key pieces in order for this to happen.
It was reported back in July that the Indiana Pacers approached the Warriors about taking Paul George off of their hands in exchange for Klay Thompson. Their offer was met with a swift and decisive no.
