JOJO’S RELATIVE GOOD HEALTH MAY HELP SIXERS LAND PAUL GEORGE!

By Jimmy Traub

If they’re determined to keep Paul George, the Clippers probably can’t afford to get too coy with the negotiations, since the Sixers are believed to have made the star forward their No. 1 target and have more than enough cap room to offer him up to approximately $212 million over four years.

Will the Clippers tack on that fourth year?

If so, they could top Daryl Morey’s offer by about $9 million in total (they can’t offer a fifth year due to the Over-38 rule), but maybe the idea of playing with two younger stars (Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey) in a less competitive Eastern Conference appeals to George.

While Embiid’s injury history has been viewed as a possible red flag for premier free agents who are considering the Sixers, it doesn’t look all that bad when stacked up next to Leonard’s.
