The Los Angeles Clippers have yet to offer Paul George a contract extension. Meanwhile, Brett Siegel from ClutchPoints suggests that George might end up joining the Golden State Warriors under certain conditions.

The Warriors are also in a similar situation with Klay Thompson, as they have not provided him with an extension. Thompson has hinted that the relationship between him and the Warriors is not as strong as it once was. Siegel believes that if the veteran leaves, the Warriors would be keen to bring in George.

Paul George’s situation with the Clippers is very interesting. Should the Clippers decide not to pay George what he wants, it may not be an Eastern Conference team that pursues George. Keep a very close eye on the Warriors regarding George if Klay Thompson is to leave,” Siegel reported.

Jake Fischer Highlights Philadelphia Sixers’ Interest in Paul George

As free agency approaches, Paul George is reportedly seeking a contract extension with the Los Angeles Clippers. Other teams, including the Philadelphia 76ers, have also expressed interest.

Yahoo Sports’ Jake Fischer recently highlighted the possibility of George joining the Sixers.

 

I wouldn’t discount the Sixers’ interest in Paul George until his status is finalized with Los Angeles or elsewhere. George has been atop Philadelphia’s wish list for some time — should the Sixers get the chance to talk with George on June 30.”

Given the lack of progress in extension talks with the Clippers, there are indications that George might test the open market. While the odds of George heading to Philadelphia have fluctuated, his final decision remains uncertain until he addresses his player option.

However, NBA insider Marc Stein provided additional insight, revealing that many sources believe George prefers to stay with the Clippers.

“More sources than not we’ve consulted believe George’s preference, as a proud Southern California native, continues to be re-signing with the Clippers, but the incumbent team’s apparent reluctance to extend George a longer or richer deal than Kawhi Leonard’s recent three-year contract extension in the $150 million range has put George’s future in legitimate flux”, Stein said.
