Is Paul George heading to the Big Apple?
As the NBA Draft looms, buzz is swirling about potential trades. Speculation about the availability of Paul George has surfaced, with the Los Angeles Clippers reportedly testing the waters for trade interest.
In response, the New York Knicks have allegedly expressed interest in acquiring the star forward.
According to Ian Begley, the two teams have discussed the possibility of a trade, but it remains unclear if George is really on the trading block. The Knicks could greatly benefit from George’s addition, as many believe they are one piece away from contending in the Eastern Conference.
The Knicks and Clippers have had contact about a potential Paul George trade, per SNY sources. It is unknown if Clippers are willing to move George. @TheSteinLine reported earlier that Clips gave rival teams the impression that they were gauging George's trade value last week.

However, the Clippers may want one of their key players in return. Nothing is set in stone, but fans are excited at the possibility of George joining the team.
While George’s health concerns some fans, for others, acquiring him is a no-brainer. These rumors are likely to gain momentum, but it is still uncertain if the Clippers will trade George.
As of now, it is all just speculation.
