There is little doubt that the Sacramento Kings need a big piece to solidify themselves as a contender in the Western Conference.

If Paul George becomes available this summer, should Sacramento pick up the phone and try to acquire the nine-time All-Star?

During Monday’s edition of The Carmichael Dave Show with Jason Ross, the guys laid out what it would take (from a salary standpoint) to trade for George, who could also opt out of his $48.7 million player option for 2024-25 and become a free agent.

Would a Kings ‘Big 3’ of George, De’Aaron Fox, and Domantas Sabonis put Sacramento in a new tier? Dave and Jason discuss below:

Trade Scenarios Discussed

  • Could the Los Angeles Clippers look to shake things up this summer?
  • Paul George is expected to opt out of his contract test free agency.
  • What would it look like if Sacramento traded for George?
  • George, 34, has played in over 60 games in just one of the past five seasons
  • Jason says if the Clippers want to keep George, they will.
  • Would a Kings core of George-Fox-Murray-Sabonis put the Kings in NBA Finals contention?
  • Looking around the league at other teams who have followed similar blueprints.

Listen to The Carmichael Dave Show with Jason Ross from 6 – 10 a.m. PST, Monday through Friday, on Sactown Sports 1140.
