Not really.

Besides, where should he go?  The Lakers can't get every disgruntled, ring-hungry player in the league on their roster.

And the Blazers have always been one of the league's most upstanding franchises.  A turnaround is definitely in order but it's not about the makeup of the team, it's about the makeup of the culture of the organization.

Is Chris Paul's legacy on the line in the Finals? | NBA | FIRST THINGS FIRST #shorts #FLZVZN

Far from it.  If anything, he's cemented his legacy not only as one of the greatest point guards of all time but as one of the greatest players period.  

His leadership has been instrumental in the Suns' run to the finals this season and he's made a lot of the young players around him better and that's not easy to do no matter what caliber of player you're talking about.

There are a small number of players in any sport that will be considered great regardless of the measure of success they've achieved on the field of play, and Chris Paul will definitely be one of them.

Should the Clippers Trade Paul George? | Group Chat | The Ringer

You'd have to evaluate whether or not Damian Lillard could carry the team if Leonard were to get injured at some point in the season.

If Lillard were put in George's position, would the Clippers have been better off?

If you think so, then yes it would be a great move.  If not, why bother?

I like the Blazers getting Paul George but that would leave the Blazers needing a great point guard.  Pretty much the situation that sank the Clippers in the first place.
