HAVE SIXERS GIVEN UP ON PAUL GEORGE? WE’LL FIND OUT JUNE 29!

By Tommy Matthews

Shams Charania reported the other day that the Sixers interest in free agent Paul George has diminished.

George said on his podcast that “playing the right style of basketball is what I’m chasing” in free agency.

He’s also chasing max money and years, but the Clippers aren’t offering them, and Keith Pompey at the Philadelphia Inquirer summed it up:

He has until [June 29] to opt into his $48.8 million contract for next season or become an unrestricted free agent.

The Clippers can offer him a four-year, $221 million deal. However, they haven’t been willing to offer more than the three years, $152.3 million they gave Kawhi Leonard.

The problem is George wants a four-year deal.

The Sixers and other squads can offer four years and around $212 million.

Can but haven’t, with the 76ers interest in George reportedly fading (which could be Philadelphia spinning his lack of interest in them, or it might be a negotiation tactic). Orlando is reportedly offering players (such as Klay Thompson) large two-year deals but doesn’t want to commit to stars long-term.
