According to former Warriors guard and current NBC Bay Area Sports analyst Kelenna Azubuike, Paul George put in a call to Klay Thompson about playing together in L.A.
George has been unequivocal about his desire to play for the Lakers and has apparently had discussions with who he would like to play with in Los Angeles. Thompson’s deal is through the 2018-19 season and while he has a good thing going on with the world champion Warriors, a lot can change in a year so we’ll have to wait and see how the team’s salary situation plays out. The Pacers are still trying to find a solid deal for the swingman and despite George’s obvious affection for the Lakers, other teams are still trying to acquire him.
