Paul George signs $190M extension with Clippers

Paul George adds 4 years, $190M to Clippers contract.

The LA Clippers are making sure Paul George gets his wish to stay in town for a while.

It is believed, the Clippers are signing George to a four-year, $190 million contract. The deal will reportedly guarantee the All-Star swingman as much as $226 million over the next five seasons.

The team officially announced the deal shortly after ESPN broke the news.

This is an important moment for our franchise and our fans, to secure a long-term commitment from one of the premier two-way players in the NBA,” said Clippers president of basketball operations Lawrence Frank said in a statement released by the team.

“We aspire to create a destination for players, an environment where they can succeed and enjoy their success. We’re delighted by Paul’s pride in representing Clippers fans, honored that he trusts the organization with this chapter of his career, and share in his relentless pursuit of championships. We admire his talent, his dedication, and his unwavering allegiance to this region. We’re excited about the opportunity to accomplish our mutual goals together.”

“Paul is one of the best and most versatile players in the league, and he has been for about a decade,” said Clippers coach Ty Lue. “He can play on or off the ball. He can score in a variety of different ways. And he can guard almost every position on the court. His skill and leadership will be integral to everything we do for many years to come. I’m thrilled we can continue to build with PG.”

Last week, when the Clippers opened camp for the 2020-21 season, George made it clear to reporters he wanted to stick with the team long term.

The Southern California native acknowledged a desire to retire with the franchise and echoed those sentiments after signing his lucrative extension.
