Paul George joins the Sixers for $212 million!

The first domino has fallen! While the Clippers had formalized the departure of Paul George, ESPN announces that the All-Star forward has reached an agreement with the Sixers. The contract amount: $212 million over four years! That's a pretty crazy amount since it means the former Pacers forward will earn $57 million in 2027/28, and he'll be 38 years old…

The fact remains that this is the biggest catch of this start of “free agency”, and Philadelphia is the big winner of this first day with the arrivals of Paul George, but also Eric Gordon and Andre Drummond, and finally the contract extension of Kelly Oubre Jr.

Tyrese Maxey's contract extension, also worth over $200 million, should follow very quickly. All that remains for management to do is to complete the roster with players at lower salaries. But the foundations are there with a complementary and impressive “Big Three”: Tyrese Maxey, the 2024 Most Improved Player; Paul George, one of the best “two-way players” in the NBA; and Joel Embiid, the 2023 MVP.
