Paul George Signs Massive Contract Extension with Clippers

When Paul George said he wanted to retire a Clipper, sounds like he was being serious. The Los Angeles Clippers and George have reportedly agreed to a contract extension that could see George take home $226 million.

George's first season in Los Angeles didn't go as planned and there's been a ton of drama surrounding the team. Some reports have alluded to chemistry issues that stem from the treatment both George and fellow star, Kawhi Leonard have been receiving, compared to how everyone else on the roster is treated.

None the less, George has also been critical of how the Clippers ex-head coach Doc Rivers was running the team, and more specifically plays for George who felt he wasn't being used properly.

George would go on to speak about the comments and had this to say:

Look for the Clippers to bounce back and go deep in the western conference. It will be curious to see if Kawhi Leonard now signs an extension with the Clippers. Leonard currently holds a player-option of $36 million for the 2021-22 season.
