Paul George?

It seems like PG13 is opting out of Pacers and Indiana is hell bent on trading him now!

Would you guys want paul george on clips and who would you guys give up to get him. 

How much of an impact would he have on this team do you guys think?

Does every trade scenario involving the Wolves need to completely ignore that they have Gorgui Dieng, he's a pretty good player and they were happy enough with him to sign him to a very significant extension?

The only asset we can realistically move for PG is DJ, and even then, we'd have to get a third team involved and it would become a convoluted mess. Needless to say, I doubt we have any chance of getting him. I would still try to move DJ for picks and young assets anyway while his value is at its peak.

Boston could really use DJ

Horford back to 4, and Johnson gone be a HUGE upgrade for them.

DJ's market is very limited. Boston however is a great match.

They've got a lot of picks and some young talent( Bradley, Brown) that could make us better immediately.

I wouldn't trade Dj for George unless PG is commited to signing w us long term.

If he becomes a clipper, he would not want to be a laker. He grew up a Clippers fan. He likes Kobe, and is from palmdale. thats the only reason he is being linked to the lakers.

+1

That's well documented. The crap that passes itself off as media in America these days is just shoveling more Laker manure. And yes, it does stink!

If George left the Clippers after a year to go down the hall to the crap-ass lottery team next door, he would look like one of the biggest doucheclowns in pro sports. He, like Dwight and Melo, would have the "career loser" stigma attached to him. And rightfully so.

It just makes no sense. Why, if he were dealt to the Clippers would he then go to the Lakers and have an even less chance of winning?

 The Clippers or Cavs can't offer Indiana the first rounders that they want for Paul George.  The Lakers can, as well as Boston.  The Clips and Cavs can offer Griffin or Love but no high picks.  They'd have to bring in a 3rd team that has high picks and who wants Griffin or Love.  Not sure Boston has a priority at PF.  Philly has good young bigs. The Lakers could definitely use Blake and have tradeable young assets. Is a #4 from PHX high enough, plus a good player?  Or Sacro at #5 + #10?  Which team wants Blake, but not Paul George, whom they could acquire in a direct trade with IND?  Substitute DJ if you prefer to make the trade with him (I would never trade DJ for PG).  Possibly PHX or Lakers needs a PF the most, while Sacro could use PF or SF depending on what they do with Gay.

Boston would take Blake. Not a good deal for the Clippers unless Blake is already leaving.

Trading Blake for George is a wash.  What's the point? Ship DJ out and get George and were on to something.

Speaking of George I watched a few of his high school games at Knight High School. His team had 3 stars and a lot of hype, I felt he wasn't even the best on the team.  Never in a million years did I think he would be a star in the NBA.  He was the tallest kid out there and he would stand at the 3 point line the entire time chucking up threes.  Baffled me.  By the way the team choked in the CIF playoffs.  Never got out of the second round :)

We should definitely avoid him then..

PG is isn't the top banana.  He's not the team leader.  It's not his job to "take the team out of the 2nd round" or whatever. He's the ultimate complementary player that takes a big load off the top banana with scoring, defense, rebounding, etc.  He's a very complete player.  He'd be an awesome complement to a CP3/DJ core.  Blake stops the ball movement too much. Would be harder to complement with PG.

PG is a better fit with Chris and DJ than Blake is.

While their numbers might be similar, George would be a HUGE improvement.

PG thrives on the perimeter- both offensively and defensively, whilst Blake's game is best suited for down low, something he can't do with DJ present.

Unfortunately, we don't have much hope of trading Blake right now.

Not going to happen unless Blake wants to go. Just ticket sales alone would prevent this.

PG would be a better fit for us than Blake, but trade would have to happen next season. Can't happen until Blake re-signs.

Stil wouldn't trade BG32 for PG13. That alone won't get us by the Warriors. Need to Keep BG32 and add another all star type player.

Correct. Blake is going nowhere. The only one that might be moved is DJ but wouldn't even sniff it unless PG willing to sign extension.

I doubt George comes here...have you all forgot that PG cheated on Callie Rivers and knocked up a stripper at the same time? 

How can Doc and Austin co-exist with Paul George on the same team?

I never knew that either.

 

What happened to the stripper's baby?

When was the last time you saw a URL with a "/girls" that didn't involve copious nudity or pay-to-stream nudity services?
