Recently, the New York Knicks reported that they have halted discussions for a possible trade for Los Angeles Clippers star forward Paul George.
ESPN and MSG analyst Alan Hahn shed some light on this development during a recent episode of the Bart & Hahn podcast.
Hahn indicated the club were put off by the exorbitant asking price for the superstar forward, showing reluctance to overhaul their roster for a potential one-year hire. Hahn revealed on the podcast: “They said it was too expensive, they don’t want to do it… They talked to the Clippers, the Clippers gave what it would cost, then Paul George said ‘But I want an extension.” And they said, ‘We’re not going to do that.’ And they walked away. So Paul George, as far as it’s concerned now, that’s out of the question.
