Paul George has been one of the NBA's most talked-about players going into free agency. Although he's primarily been associated with Eastern Conference teams, an insider indicated that a Western team might be interested in signing the All-Star forward.

Another name that has been mentioned frequently this offseason is Klay Thompson. Numerous reports indicate that he will likely test the open market after failing to reach a deal with the Golden State Warriors. If Thompson becomes a free agent, an insider suggested that the Warriors might be interested in George. 


How was George’s season with the LA Clippers?

George's $48.7 million player option could still allow him to rejoin the LA Clippers rather than becoming a free agent this offseason. This week is the last one the nine-time All-Star will have to decide.

George just finished a successful season with the Clippers. Throughout his 74 games, he averaged 22.6 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 3.5 assists. Although Los Angeles finished fourth in the regular season, the Dallas Mavericks eliminated them in the first round of the playoffs.
