Los Angeles Clippers standout Paul George has been making headlines since launching his podcast in March 2023. Dubbed “Playoff P,” a new moniker attributed to his podcast endeavors, George delved into NBA trade rumors in the latest episode, specifically discussing a potential deal involving the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors. In this rumored scenario, Pascal Siakam would be traded to the Warriors, with Jonathan Kuminga going to the Raptors, a move George sees as beneficial for both teams. He emphasized Siakam’s potential as a second or third option with the Warriors, praising his versatility in playing alongside Steph Curry and Klay Thompson.

George acknowledged the necessity for additional assets to make the contracts work but expressed optimism about the prospect of Kuminga joining a youthful and promising Raptors squad, envisioning them as a “fun team for years to come.”

The insights shared by George appear logical, sparking interest in the possibility of Siakam joining the Warriors. While Siakam’s willingness to sign an immediate extension with a traded team remains uncertain, the appeal of a long-term deal with Golden State seems plausible. Nevertheless, recent discussions about Kuminga indicate that the Warriors highly value him as a potential star, making it unlikely for the team to part ways with him, according to SportsNet’s Michael Grange.

The debate surrounding Kuminga becomes more complex due to reports suggesting that the 21-year-old may have “lost faith” in Golden State coach Steve Kerr’s ability to maximize his potential, as reported by The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

Looking ahead, only time will reveal the outcome, but the suggestion of adding Siakam to the core of Curry, Thompson, and Draymond Green could be a strategic move for Golden State to consider seriously.
