I'm not against a trade for improvement, but trading for Paul George does not make sense for several reasons. For one, if this past year has shown us one thing, it is that the youngsters don't quite do well playing together with a "possession dominant" player next to them. It neither fits the narrative we've have been preaching for 3 years, nor it provides a peace of mind for the young players to flourish. We have seen this with Kobe and Lou. The group becomes worse than sum of its parts.
Second, Paul George isn't a generational talent. Meaning, he does not have the qualities to make others and his team better. I could prove this with his statements after first two games of the series against Cavaliers. A leader does not act that way. Paul George is 27 and arguably having his peak years. But the result of his body of work does not show enough promise to believe he could take it further. Interest in Paul George's current status is equivalent to buying a stock when it shows a spike. While it is definitely exciting, it is not always wise to invest.
Third and last, we have a player named Brandon Ingram, who has shown the talent to perform on both ends of the floor at similar size and athleticism. Restricting the development of Ingram for the sake of accompanying George and Ingram in starting lineup could have not-so-good implications down the road.
