Paul George, Marcus Morris Lobby For Clippers To Sign Russell Westbrook

Feb 11, 2023 11:04 PM

Paul George and Marcus Morris are pushing for the Los Angeles Clippers to sign Russell Westbrook should he agree to a buyout with the Utah Jazz.

George brought up Westbrook when he was asked if the Clippers should add a point guard with their open roster spot in the buyout market.

"I mean if there's, you know, somebody out there -- Russell," George said after the Clippers lost 119-106 to the Milwaukee Bucks at home on Friday night. "If it makes sense and obviously it goes with our team, we're all for it. You know, we need a point guard. But you know, [at] the same [time], I think we're good as well. If nothing happened, we got enough in this locker room to be able to make it work.

"But it would definitely improve our team if we had that traditional point guard to kind of get us in things and make the game easy. So hopefully Russell sees this and we figure something out."

Mavs Considered Frontrunners To Sign Terrence Ross After Buyout With Magic

Feb 11, 2023 2:05 PM

The Orlando Magic and wing Terrence Ross are working towards a buyout. The Dallas Mavericks are the frontrunners to sign Ross when he clears waivers from Orlando.

Ross has seen his playing time drastically reduced this season with the Magic. In 42 games, he's averaged 8.0 points on 43.1% shooting from the field, including 38.1% on three-pointers.

Ross will likely give back a portion of his $11.5 million salary for this season. If Ross signs with the Mavericks, the max they can offer him is a prorated veteran minimum contract.
