9-time NBA All-Star named Ideal Fit but Knicks ‘never seriously pursued’

If there’s an ideal All-Star who can play next to Jalen Brunson in the New York Knicks’ backcourt, it’s Paul George of the Los Angeles Clippers, according to Fred Katz of The Athletic.

“George would be a great fit with the Knicks: a rangy wing who drains threes, runs pick-and-rolls, doesn’t stop moving without the ball and could combine with OG Anunoby to create the best perimeter defensive combination in the league. He plays without an ego and has no problem taking a backseat to his co-stars, be they Kawhi Leonard or Russell Westbrook. And, oh, he’s a client of CAA, the same agency Rose ran before coming to the Knicks four years ago. ” Katz wrote on June 14.

But Katz also added that the Knicks “have floated George’s name before, according to league sources, but have never seriously pursued him in a deal.”
