Paul George, Los Angeles Clippers Agree to Long-Term Extension

Paul George will be a Los Angeles Clipper for a while.

He might even retire as one.

With two years remaining on his current deal, the second being a player option, Pandemic P… er… George signed a four-year, $190-million extension with the franchise on Thursday. The contract also includes a fifth year player option, which can push the deal to $226-million.

Despite his struggles in side the bubble, the Clippers clearly remain fully committed to their veteran star guard who came into the season rehabbing dual shoulder surgery. Despite the injury-riddled offseason, George still put together an All-Star calibre season and averaged 21.5 points across 48 games.

George and the organization is hopeful that Kawhi Leonard will follow suit and sign a long-term extension of his own.

“He’s one of the guys that I talked to and kind of wanted to inform, ‘Hey, this is a decision I wanted to make. I want to be here long term,'” George said. “It’s not putting a gun to Kawhi and telling him he’s gotta do this or do that. Hopefully it’s a mutual bond, and we both enjoy playing with one another.”

“Again, it’s Kawhi’s decision,” George added. “I’m a grown man. If he decides to go elsewhere, that’s a decision that I’ll be happy for him. But my hoping and my responsibility — what I would love is to play with him for the rest of my contract or the rest of his contract. I guess I have to work on that when it comes to his time.”

George’s new deal will start in his age-31 season.
