Paul George Signs 5-Year, $226M Max Contract With Clippers

Paul George is staying in Los Angeles. 

The All-Star forward signed a five-year, $226 million max contract extension with the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday, according to ESPN. 

Despite a shocking upset loss to the Denver Nuggets in the NBA bubble, the Clippers had no choice but to keep one of their biggest assets who could have departed after the upcoming season. 

Although the NBA offseason has been short, it's still been a somewhat tumultuous one for PG13. George threw his former coach Doc Rivers under the bus for the team's disappointing finish and for not using him correctly

George, who is from nearby Palmdale, will be under contract through the 2025-26 campaign. 

In his first season with the Clippers, George averaged 21.5 points, 5.7 rebounds and 3.9 assists.
