PSA The clippers did NOT trade SGA and 5 first round picks for Paul George They traded SGA and 5 first round picks for Paul George AND Kawhi Leonard

Kawhi Leonard was not going to sign with the Clippers unless they brought in another free agent. The Lakers were lurking as a serious contender for Kawhis signature and he was not going to sign with the Clippers unless they made a move. Now am I saying that this was a good trade anyway ? Well after tonights loss to Denver it sure doesnt look like it. But trading SGA and 5 firsts (+2 pick swaps i believe) for Paul George AND Kawhi Leonard which is essentially what they did sure sounds a lot better than SGA and 5 firsts for PG. Seeing it thrown around a lot on this sub and it seems like a lot of people dont understand the context of the trade.
