Could Paul George be on his way out of LA after just one season?

Two weeks ago it was reported that several Clippers rolled their eyes at George when he tried to convince players on the team to come back next season after getting eliminated from the playoffs by the Nuggets.

In the postgame locker room Tuesday night, George was preaching to teammates to remain committed, for all the players to return to the team this offseason and stay ready to make another run. It was met by some eye rolls and bewilderment, sources said, because George did not back up his words with action in the series and the team has multiple free agents with decisions to make. George scored 10 points on 4 of 16 shooting and 2 of 11 from 3-point range in the Game 7 defeat.

After the team parted ways with head coach Doc Rivers, The Ringer’s Ryen Russillo revealed that the team’s locker room situation is worse than initially reported because players on the team don’t respect Paul George.

According to Fox Sports’ Jason McIntyre he’s been told by someone close to the organization that George got less than stellar reviews from his teammates during exit interviews and that it wouldn’t be shocking if the team traded him to the Nets this offseason.

It seems like everything is on the table for the Clippers after the team shockingly let go of longtime head coach Doc Rivers last week.
