Warriors Potentially Targeting Paul George In 2018

Thus, the Warriors may be letting Klay Thompson to get George. Kawakami says Warriors owner Joe Lacob "is going to try and find a way" to get George to Golden State.

Kawakami, who left the San Jose Mercury News to take over as editor-in-chief of the San Francisco edition of subscription-based sports site The Athletic thinks the team is going to make a run at forward Paul George.

As far as everyone else is concerned, the Oklahoma City Thunder are renting Paul George this coming season.

One scenario in a pursuit for the Warriors would obviously be to wait out his free agency and make a pitch for him in the summer of 2018.

A little perspective: The salary cap projects to be $102 million next summer, but it won't be determined until then.

Kawakami notes that despite the extremely bright outlook for the Warriors in the short-term, any chance for Lacob to grab younger talent like George, a 27-year-old in the prime of his career, they'll make that move and "try anything" without disrupting the chemistry of one of the greatest National Basketball Association rosters ever assembled. He might be taking an unexpectedly large discount this year, but that'd be a monumentally large sacrifice by Durant next year. But if the Golden State Warriors franchise owner Joe Lacob has anything to do with it, the All-Star forward could end up in the Bay Area playing for the defending National Basketball Association champion. But that'd require appeasing the Thunder, no easy task. Though it is still a long way, Thompson might probably try to stay with the Warriors.

If George hits free agency, Golden State's realistic chances of landing George likely evaporate. Even then, it'd be a tough squeeze. But another, potentially more encouraging parade, would be to try and work a deal with the OKC ahead of the trade deadline to send Fresno State product to Golden State. But Oklahoma City would have even more leverage than the offseason. How could the Warriors entice the Thunder? But doesn't that kind of defeat the goal?
