    Fantasy NBA Today: Kawhi Inks His Deal, Morris…

    Paul George is now officially a Clipper with the team announcing his acquisition on Tuesday.

    George joins Kawhi Leonard in LA while sending Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Danilo Gallinari and five future first-round picks and two pick swaps to the Thunder. Leonard and George give the Clippers one of the best — if not the best — duos in the league, with the sort of elite two-way play on the wings that has been a hallmark of the league's top teams in this recent era. PG is no stranger to playing with high-usage superstars after his stint in OKC, so we're not at all worried about his fantasy outlook. As long as his shoulder is healed up by opening night there's no reason to treat George as anything other than a first-round fantasy talent.

    Marc Stein elaborated on the picks, swaps and protections involved in the Paul George trade from the Thunder to the Clippers.

    It's three unprotected first rounders from the Clips in 2022, 2024 and 2026 and then the Clippers' rights to the Heat's first round pick in 2021 (unprotected) and 2023 (protected 1-14). OKC also has the rights to pick swaps with the Clippers in 2023 and 2025. Sam Amick reports these pick swaps are unprotected, too. This is a massive deal and it's gambling on a championship if you're the Clippers, so there's not much to say there other than good luck, and if you're the Thunder you just grabbed a winning lottery ticket off the ground, so congrats.

    Paul George will be traded to the Clippers according to Adrian Wojnarowski for a "record setting collection of draft choices."

    Wow. It's all happening right now and Woj reports that the Clippers are "sending the Thunder four unprotected first-round picks, one protected first-round pick and two pick swaps." George joins Kawhi Leonard in L.A. and all hell is breaking loose in the NBA right now. As for the Clippers, this is a championship level bet and the Thunder get a gift from above as they weren't winning anything anytime soon and they just got a treasure chest of future.

    Paul George is expected to miss most of the preseason as he recovers from surgery to repair his right rotator cuff and left labrum.

    George is coming off a fantastic season, and it's unlikely that this will scare any fantasy players off from taking PG in the first round. That said, if he's already expected to miss most of the preseason, that won't leave a lot of leeway if any setbacks arise. There's no need to worry about George for the time being but keep your eyes open for updates on his progress as the summer rolls on.

    Paul George had successful surgery on his left shoulder to repair a tear in his labrum on Tuesday.

    This was expected a few months ago when it was revealed that George would undergo left labrum surgery when his right rotator cuff healed enough. George has a rough summer healing from surgery on both shoulders and his recovery will be reassessed at the start of training camp.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo, Rudy Gobert and Paul George have been named the finalists for NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year award.

    One could make a convincing argument for all three so it’s hard to call. That being said, this seems like Giannis’ year and we could see him racking up a few awards this season.

    According to Woj, among others, Paul George underwent right rotator cuff surgery and will minimally miss the start of training camp.

    In addition to the right shoulder surgery, George had a procedure done on his left labrum as well. Even though George insisted that his shoulder was fine, he never truly looked right towards the end of the season and in the playoff series with the Blazers. George will now get a late start to the offseason, and very well could extend further, though nothing so far suggests that he is in danger of missing the start of next season. Keep track of George's progress throughout the summer.

    Thunder GM Sam Presti said that Paul George would get his shoulder re-evaluated by a specialist over the summer.

    George insisted that he felt no pain in his shoulder and the issue didn't affect his game, but the results said differently. George's shot looked off, especially in the first few games against the Blazers. George will have a full offseason to get healthy and be ready to produce another top fantasy season.

    Paul George said that he wasn't in much pain during the playoffs but he will address his shoulder situation soon.

    Though he doesn't want it to be used as an excuse, George was clearly bothered by the shoulder through the end of the season and into the series with the Blazers. His shot wasn't the same and it showed in the first few games of the playoffs. George should be fully healthy entering next season and ready to be a to produce another top fantasy season.

    Paul George had a huge game with 36 points (14-of-20 FGs, 5-of-8 FTs), nine rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers in Tuesday's 118-115 road loss to the Blazers.

    George was feeling it early, making his first five shots. He battled through first-half foul trouble and likely some lingering pain from his injury. But it wasn't quite enough as Damian Lillard out-played him in this one to end the series in Portland.

    Paul George is staying confident that his Thunder will come back from a 3-1 deficit saying, "I definitely think we're built for this. If there's a team that can be down 3-1 and come back from it, I think we're the team to do it."

    While it's great to hear the confidence from one of your superstar leaders, the Thunder need to shoot better if they want to mount a comeback. George looked better in Game 4, but outside of Game 3's home win, the Thunder have shot the ball poorly as a team all series long.
