If you haven't been living under a rock for the last week, you are well aware that Klay Thompson is currently in China.
And on Wednesday night (Thursday afternoon in China), the two-time champion cleared the air about a certain subject.
As for the recent Paul George / Lakers rumors, Klay Thompson shot that down & told me he hasn't spoken to PG at all lately.— Nick DePaula (@NickDePaula) June 29, 2017
Klay Thompson says his last conversation with Paul George was FIFA video game trash talk texts last summer during the Rio Olympics.— Nick DePaula (@NickDePaula) June 29, 2017
Klay was asked about Paul George, because on Tuesday morning, Kelenna Azubuike said that George, "definitely put in a call to Klay Thompson, and obviously he feels like Klay Thompson is a guy that he would love to play with in the Lakers."
George is currently on the trade block and reportedly wants to play for the Lakers -- whether it be next season (if Indiana ships him there) or in 2018, when he can become an unrestricted free agent.
Klay is scheduled for free agency in the summer of 2019.
On Feb. 22, 2015, Klay scored 39 points in Indiana
On Dec. 8, 2015, Klay dropped 39 points in Indiana again, making 10 of 16 from deep.
On Dec. 5, 2016, he torched the Pacers for 60 points in just 29 minutes of action.
Klay is pretty good...
