An 8-time All-Star may be available for the Knicks

One of the All-Star wings on the New York Knicks’ radar has generated commercial buzz, but as in Bradley Beal’s sweepstakes, they’re at the back of the line.

The Los Angeles Clippers are toying with the idea of trading eight-time All-Star Paul George, according to NBA insider Marc Stein.

“League sources tell The Stein Line that the LA Clippers have left various rival teams with the impression during their Draft Week conversations that they are, at the very least, attempting to gauge the commercial value of Paul George and, according to some describe it, giving real consideration to the idea of taking the Kawhi Leonard/George tandem apart”, Stein wrote.

In May, Yahoo Sports NBA insider Jake Fischer reported that the Knicks will inquire about George’s availability as they look to add a star to their roster, who advanced to the second round of the playoffs last season for the first time in a decade.
