The Golden State Warriors have won a two of the last three NBA championship titles, and the super team currently have four superstar of the top 20 players in the National Basketball Association on their roster. And yet, it seems the Warriors might be looking to get even better next offseason 2018.
The former Indiana Pacers superstar Paul George will be an unrestricted free agent after the 2017-18 NBA season campaign, and while most of the NBA fans anticipates the star forward to head for his home team Los Angeles Lakers, the Golden State could be in the mix in 2018.
The Athletic’s Tim Kawakami recently make an appearance on a podcast with the Washington Post’s Tim Bontemps, and said he believes the that the defending NBA champions will make a pursuit at adding Paul George next offseason.
Marcus and I have teased this for more than a year. We think they’re going to go after Paul George, somehow. I think Joe Lacob is going to try to find a way to get Paul George.
I don’t know how that would happen, but I didn’t know how it was going to happen when they were—three years ago, when they said they were go after Durant. Well, they didn’t say it. But they might have whispered it.”
Should the Golden State Warriors are interested to pursue Paul George, it would potentially require the aforementioned franchise to part with at least one of its core four players. And with Splash Brothers’ member Klay Thompson seeing his play time subside with the arrival of superstar Kevin Durant, the Warriors could nose out a way to make salary cap space for Paul George.
The money, like in any other sports leagues, still is on George getting nto the Lakers in 2018. However, anything is possible to happen with the Warriors.
