After the Los Angeles Clippers signed superstar forward Kawhi Leonard to a contract extension, the consensus was that it would only be a matter of time before the team came to terms with fellow superstar Paul George on a similar deal to keep the duo intact, especially with the franchise moving into the Intuit Dome next season.

Strangely enough, it doesn’t seem as though the Clippers are dead set on bringing George back on a long-term deal, as nothing has come to fruition with talks ongoing and the veteran potentially hitting NBA free agency this weekend.

Fortunately for George, he’ll have no shortage of suitors on the open market or potentially willing to trade for him before he becomes a free agent this summer, with the Golden State Warriors, Denver Nuggets and Philadelphia 76ers all being possibly landing spots.

According to Brian Windhorst of ESPN, the Clippers aren’t offering George a maximum contract, which might mean they are willing to part ways.

“[The Clippers] are not acting like they’re desperate to keep him,” Windhorst said.

At this point in time, it is uncertain what the Clippers’ plan is for this NBA offseason, as losing George for nothing would be devastating, and it is unclear if they’d get equal value if they traded him.

The rumors swirling around the league right now have the Clippers interested in a reunion with Chris Paul and ready to let Russell Westbrook also walk in free agency, which means anything can happen moving forward when it comes to this team.
