With the NBA trade deadline nearing, teams are scrambling to make any potential last-minute deals to help shore up their prospective futures. Try as they may, there is seemingly no use in inquiring about Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George. There have been rumblings about teams attempting to capitalize on the Thunder’s underwhelming performance in the 2017-18 NBA season thus far. However, Oklahoma City has no intention of splitting up their core group anytime soon, according to Sam Amick of USA Today Sports: Ask any rival executive who has come calling for George, who thought the Thunder’s inconsistent season might prompt Presti to trade George for fear he might lose another transcendent talent for nothing, and you hear the same word: untouchable.
