Dream 76ers target: Paul George

At this point, the Paul George to 76ers talks are as repetitive as a nursery rhyme. It’s become a weekly newsstand thing, and while we definitely aren’t trying to evade the wrecking ball of blame, it’s simply untoward not to shed light on how real the linkage is between both camps. There must a strong factual basis in account of its frequency.

Philadelphia is the lone win-now team that can offer George a max contract outright, save for the Clippers, his current team. What makes George a pipe dream target, however, is the fact that LA is apparently hellbent on exhausting all possible options to ensure that he stays in Hollywood as he slowly starts slipping away from his prime.

Following Kawhi Leonard’s lucrative extension, the Clippers have virtually no other choice than to continue climbing their way into an improbable championship with George and James Harden also coming along for the ride. Unfortunately, that means the 76ers only have a very slim chance to form what could be the most formidable threesome in the East with Embiid, Maxey, and George.

Next. mody trade. Grade the Trade: 76ers make a savvy play for young wing in low-risk pitch. dark
