Paul George played a somewhat significant role in bringing Russell Westbrook to the Los Angeles Clippers, according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst.

Windhorst reported on his Hoop Collective podcast that George "drove this decision" because the team was internally "against it at the start." The conversation begins at the 35:30 mark.

Clippers officials reportedly "talked themselves into it" after weighing what Westbrook could bring to the table.
