Brandon Miller doubled down on Paul George as his GOAT.
“I think I made it clear that Paul George is still my GOAT, but Mike is definitely up there when in his prime. (laughes) Mike does everything. We wear his shoes and he jumps from the FT line. But Paul George is my GOAT.” AM

Lawrence Frank reiterated that the Clippers want to maximize around Kawhi Leonard and Paul George and be transparent with those two and see what they’re seeing to improve team. Frank says new CBA will change how teams are built. He said both stars were upset with how season ended – 1:31 AM

Portland registered interest in creating a deal around the No. 3 pick for Paul George, sources told @JakeLFischer, but those talks didn’t gain any traction with LA.
Don’t expect the Clippers to part with PG.

Paul George is really good and a good fit for the Knicks (depending on the cost) — but 33 years old and these games played the last four seasons… PM

Brandon Miller saying Paul George is the GOAT, then Michael Jordan passing on him at No. 2 is proof that the NBA scriptwriters are working on a sitcom. – 12:38 PM

Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
This is going to sound a bit greedy, but if I were the Knicks, I wouldn’t pay what it takes to get Paul George because I’m pretty confident that someone younger, better and/or more durable will try to force their way to New York in the relatively near future. – 12:04 PM
Alvaro Martin @AlvaroNBAMartin
Dice Ian que NYK y LAC sostienen pláticas de un canje de Paul George a New York. No me late que a George le entusiasme la noción de irse de su sur de California natal, y encima irse a una ciudad distante de sus raíces.
El nuevo convenio colectivo pesa en Clipperlandia. AM
Ian Begley @IanBegley
The Knicks and Clippers have had contact about a potential Paul George trade, per SNY sources. It is unknown if Clippers are willing to move George. @TheSteinLine reported earlier that Clips gave rival teams the impression that they were gauging George’s trade value last week. – 11:23 AM

Paul George was just minding his offseason business, now all of a sudden his career is being scrutinized next to the GOATs of the game. Thanks, Brandon Miller… PM

“I actually don’t think LeBron is the GOAT of basketball, my GOAT of basketball is Paul George.”

Is the Kawhi Leonard/Paul George era ending in LA? Rumor is Clippers are testing the Paul George trade waters.…11:16 AM

If the Clippers trade Paul George to Portland for Simons and the no. 3 pick, the obvious next step would be to trade Kawhi, no? – 9:53 AM

Though George was an All-Star forward as recently as February, multiple league insiders this week expressed doubts about what return value the team could get for him, -via Los Angeles Times / June 22, 2023
