Paul George shares thoughts on Terence Mann

Paul George openly endorsed the team’s decision to include Terance Mann in the starting lineup, even amid ongoing trade rumors, particularly those concerning James Harden. When asked about Mann’s new role, George emphasized the guard’s professionalism, maturity, and strong work ethic.

Speaking to the media, George said:

It's great that Terance is rewarded for being a professional, for being mature at his age. Coming in, doing what he's supposed to do, having the work ethic, being coachable, just being a sponge under so many people that he's played with. Now it's preparation meeting the opportunity. Now it's his time to be put in that lineup. He deserves it, he worked his butt off for it. I think that's what you - from an organizational standpoint, it's something the other guys can look towards.

George’s affirmation of Mann’s attributes demonstrated the Clippers’ confidence in the player. George praised Mann’s preparation meeting chance and said the rookie guard earned it for his hard work and determination. George’s support not only brought Mann’s potential to light but also demonstrated the Clippers’ internal talent development and reward system.

George’s positive reaction illustrated the team’s confidence in Mann’s abilities, signaling a strategic choice to focus on developing their homegrown talent rather than seeking external acquisitions like Harden.
