• Paul George's net worth is around $60 million
  • The Clippers will pay him $35 million next season
  • His signature shoe, PG 1, was the most worn sneakers in the NBA in 2018

Paul George’s net worth is around $60 million and his fortune is about to get bigger come next season.

George was acquired in a blockbuster move by the Los Angeles Clippers during the offseason. The plan is simple: help Kawhi Leonard bring the championship to LA's less than stellar team. As with all All-Star teams, the deal did not come cheap as the team had to open its treasure chest to bolster its lineup.

In 2018, the former Indiana Pacers main man signed a four-year, $137 million extension with the OKC Thunder, according to Forbes. Shortly after, the team decided it was time for a rebuild and shipped star guard Russell Westbrook to the Houston Rockets. PG was then handpicked by Leonard to help him in the Clippers.

According to Sportrac, George is receiving $33 million this year and come next season, the Clippers will pay $35 million and $37 million in 2022. He is the 33rd highest paid athlete in 2019. The 10-year veteran started his career with the Pacers and spent seven seasons with them, earning a total of at least $61 million. In his two years with the Thunder, George was able to receive $50 million. It is safe to say that not only his basketball career blossomed but his bank accounts as well.

When his deal expires in 2023, the Olympic gold medalist will enter the free agency and at just 32 years old by then, he can still command a max contract. But it will all depend on his health and production with the L.A. Clippers. If the team goes on to win the chip, many are expecting the athletic small forward to remain in L.A. for a lot longer.

Aside from his basketball salary, PG13 makes serious money from endorsement deals. He has collaborated with Bass Pro Shops, Foot Locker, Gatorade and New Era. George has also his line of signature shoes with Nike. Complex reported PG 1 as the most worn sneaker in the NBA in 2018.

This season, he is averaging 21 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. The Clippers are second to the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference standings with 43-20 win-loss record but fans are predicting a mouth-watering showdown between the rivals in the conference finals.
