Paul George signs with 76ers, $212/4

Not a huge surprise after recent developments, but still a major player in theory making a new contender in the East. Oubre Jr resigned, Drummond and Gordon joined the 76ers also. They could have about $9m left to work with.

He's 34 and missed playoffs 2 of the last 3 years through injury. Averaged about 30 missed regular season games per year across 5 seasons with LA. And they're giving him a max contract.

I hope him and Embiid stay healthy, cos they could challenge Boston. But I wouldn't bet on it.

Might be something they almost had to do to placate Embiid. Write off the fourth year mentally and hope for a strong three-year patch. Embiid is already 30.

I feel Paul George was on fire until sustaining a horrific injury while playing for USA in Vegas, he has never been quite the same since.

It happened ten years ago and he's still getting a max deal. NBA contracts are wild.
