Could the delay in the inevitable Paul George trade be due to Kevin Pritchard asking for way too much in return?
Boston, who has been talking within indiana about PG for over a week, reportedly thinks so:
League source: Celtics waiting to hear back from Indy's Pritchard, but consider his current demand for George unrealistic.— Mark Murphy (@Murf56) June 29, 2017
Source added that Pritchard's last demand was for next year's Nets and Lakers picks, plus starting player(s).— Mark Murphy (@Murf56) June 29, 2017
It's absolutely unrealistic for Pritchard to think he can pry two potential Lottery picks and a starter in return for a guy who already wants out. That said, I'm glad he's not taking a deal just to take a deal.
With free agency starting Saturday, though, he'll need to bite the bullet very soon.
