The Los Angeles Clippers are going to make changes after the dishearting elimination in the semifinals series versus the Denver Nuggets.

According to Jovan Buha of The Athletic, Kawhi Leonard is the only player who is considered untouchable for the franchise’s front office.

The report suggests that Paul George is a close second in that regard, but the Clippers could move him for the right package.

(via Sportskeeda):

I think Leonard is the only untouchable on the roster. George is close to untouchable, but I think the Clippers would move him for the right package – and, obviously, if that was Leonard’s preferred outcome.” 

The Clippers paid a high price last summer to bring Paul George from Oklahoma giving up five first-round picks in addition to Shai-Gilgeous Alexander, who had an incredible sophomore season with the Thunder.

It seems unlikely for the Clippers to give up on George so easily, but losing a 3-1 lead to the Denver Nuggets on playoff series could bring huge changes in the team’s roster.
