SIXERS REPORTEDLY OFFERED COVINGTON, 2 NO. 1’S FOR GEORGE!

By Lewis Gould

Want to know what the Sixers offered the Pacers for Paul George at the trade deadline last month?

According to Liberty Ballers, here’s what the Sixers were willing to give up for George–a player set for free agency at the end of the 2017-18 season:

Multiple sources told Liberty Ballers the Sixers offered Indiana their choice of one of the Sixers’ young bigs, Robert Covington, and at least two first round picks for his services.

According to multiple sources, the Sixers’ preference was to keep their own future picks and move the draft rights of other teams — like those of the Lakers and Kings — in an effort to protect themselves against George leaving.

However, the Sixers were not turned off by George’s reported preference to play for the Lakers, according to one member of the organization, and believed they could sell George on staying with the Sixers long-term by enticing him to play with their promising core players. As a result, their own picks beyond the 2017 Draft were not untouchable, per sources.
