(Paul) George Sr. told The Star that his son (Pacers forward Paul George) suffered an “even break” in his right leg that will allow him to return at 100 percent. Though George is experiencing some pain, George Sr. displayed a smiling expression fitting the name of the medical center when he repeated the positive prognosis his son has received after undergoing successful surgery to repair an open tibia-fibula fracture. Doctors believe that the two-time All-Star will eventually return to his career with the same athletic capabilities as before.

“Paul’s doing well now. He’s doing good. He’s just resting right now,” George Sr. said. “If it had to break, it broke the right way. It broke evenly, so they’re saying he should be back 100 percent. But of course, he’s got to go through his long process of healing and getting back in the gym but they’re saying that shouldn’t stop him from doing what he was doing once he’s healthy again.”

Sources: Jimmy Butler Prefers Trade to Clippers, Interested in Knicks, Nets

After registering a trade request with the Minnesota Timberwolves, All-Star Jimmy Butler is most interested in pursuing a future with the Los Angeles Clippers, league sources told ESPN.

Butler’s ability to partner on the Clippers with a second star player in a deep summer free agency market holds a strong appeal to Butler, league sources said.

The Clippers have two max contract slots available in July, and are emerging as a front-runner for Toronto’s All-NBA forward Kawhi Leonard when he becomes a free agent in July, league sources said.

Butler told Minnesota president of basketball operations and coach Tom Thibodeau that he would like to be traded before reporting for Timberwolves media day on Monday and prefers the possibility of the Clippers — as well as the New York Knicks, league sources said. Butler told the Timberwolves that he planned to leave the franchise in free agency next summer, sources said.

The Brooklyn Nets’ ability to sign two max free agents in the summer will keep them in consideration for Butler, but he has prioritized the Clippers and Knicks over them, league sources said.
