The New York Knicks are unwilling to pay a hefty price just to see Paul George suiting up their royal blue and orange threads.
As relayed by Knicks reporter Alan Hahn on Monday’s segment of “Bart & Hahn” show, George is reportedly “off the table” now for the Knicks after the Los Angeles Clippers demanded an “expensive” return. As such, the club’s chase has ultimately shutted down upon the star swingman’s desire to receive a contract extension.
“They had a chance to get Paul George,” Hahn said on Bart and Hahn show. “They said it was too expensive, they don’t want to do it. They’ve already backed outta that. 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 doing that.’ And they walked away. So Paul George… as far as now goes, it’s off the table.”
