Paul George Says He Won't Be Playing In The Drew League This Year

Paul George Gives Massive Praise To Toronto Raptors After 3-Week Rico Hines Open Run: "I'd Be Disappointed If Y'all Ain't Come Out Hot To Start The Season"

Pro-Am Leagues like the Drew League have been in the focus this offseason as a host of NBA stars have headed over to hoop during this offseason. LeBron James, DeMar DeRozan, and Trae Young have been the big names to feature so far, and it seemed like Paul George was next after he had previously indicated he wanted to play, but it doesn’t look like it's going to be possible this time around.

It was reported in late July that he would be coming back to the Drew League for the first time since 2014, but in a recent Twitch stream, George stated that he has been too occupied with other commitments to be able to take time off to play.

PG got married last month and has been holding his basketball camp recently, which would explain why he hasn’t had as much free time on his hands as he normally would have had. It is a shame that he won’t be able to participate, but it is what it is at this point, and we’ll just have to wait for a while to see him back on the court. Also present at that basketball camp of his was teammate Reggie Jackson, who stated that he would have retired if not for the support he received from PG, who played a big part in him joining the Clippers.

George would have also played a part behind the scenes in getting John Wall on the team and if this move turns out to be a success like Jackson’s, then the Clippers would have hit the jackpot. On paper, they are one of the more loaded teams in the Western Conference, with a lot of depth at their disposal and if Kawhi Leonard and George stay healthy, then they are primed to be serious contenders for the title.
