NBA All-Star Paul George has signed a maximum contract extension with the Los Angeles Clippers, the team announced.
The team extended George's contract for an additional four years at $190 million, which will guarantee him as much as $226 million over the next five years. He is already guaranteed $35.4 million for the 2020–21 season.
The six-time All-Star forward had a player option for the 2021–22 season, but the new extension will replace that and include a new player option for the 2024–25 season, according to his agent Aaron Mintz.
George signed a four-year, $137 million contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2018 before he was traded to the Clippers a year later.
George averaged 21.5 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 3.9 assists for the Clippers last season, shooting 43.9% from the field and 41.2% from three-point range.
