1. Paul George

The Clippers have been trying to extend George, but no deal is in place. The nine-time All-Star has a $48.7 million player option for next season but will get a massive deal if he hits free agency. Does PG-13 want to stay home in LA or maximize his earnings elsewhere?

There will be no shortage of suitors. Even teams without cap space will try to work out sign-and-trades if George wants to play for them. He is coming off playing 74 games and proving he can be a force on both ends of the floor. Paul George makes any team in the NBA better, but can he stay healthy?

The Clippers want to save a bit of money, especially as George has averaged just 52.6 games per year over his five seasons in LA. Availability matters and PG-13 playing more this season helped his team get homecourt in the opening round.

Does Paul George return to the Clippers? He might, but the two sides could have worked out an extension already. If George becomes a free agent, all bets are off. His future is up in the air with the franchise. Losing PG-13 and Harden would leave them scrambling. It will certainly be an eventful offseason as the Clippers prepare to enter their new arena.
