Should The Clippers Consider Trading Paul George In Offseason?

LA Clippers, Paul George, NBA Trade Rumors

The LA Clippers knew they were going to face some challenges this season without Kawhi Leonard in the lineup. Leonard suffered a knee injury in the second round of the NBA Playoffs in 2021 which required surgery.

Normally, a player would have a chance to come back the following season. But, given the adjustments in the NBA’s schedule because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Leonard’s injury occurred in mid-June instead of late April or early May.

But, the LA Clippers at least had a second All-Star they could rely upon in Paul George to help carry the load until Leonard returned to the court. Unfortunately, he has also struggled with injuries. George has played in only 26 games this season and none since December 22nd.

The rest of the Clippers did all they could to stay afloat, as they hung around the .500 mark for most of the season. They are continuing to battle every night, but without their two All-Stars and Norman Powell, the team is struggling to win games.
