In response to Paul George’s recent comments about the potential return of James Harden to the Rockets, rising star Jalen Green has addressed the issue, expressing his agreement with George’s viewpoint. Green’s brief but impactful response has added fuel to the ongoing speculation surrounding the team’s future.
Green, who was the fourth overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft and a key player for the Rockets, acknowledged George’s stance during a conversation about the rumors. When asked about George’s comments, Green stated, “I really didn’t talk to him too much about the rumors and stuff like that. But I’m with you on that. That’s all I’m gonna say.”
Green’s response seems to align with George’s concerns about the potential impact of adding a ball-dominant player like Harden to the team’s dynamic. While Green did not delve further into the matter, his agreement with George’s sentiment adds weight to the notion that the Rockets’ future may be best served by allowing their young star to continue his growth and development.
This past season Green averaged 22.1 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.7 assists in 34.2 minutes per game.
