With Free Agency less than 12 hours out, the rumor mill has been going stronger than ever. Blake Griffin, Gordon Hayward and even Carmelo Anthony have been mired in a storm of constant question marks.

But by far the biggest story this offseason remains Paul George, who is due to be traded any second. It's no secret that his ultimate wish is to play in Los Angeles, but there have been rumblings that he'd be willing to play for the Cavaliers and the Celtics under certain circumstances.

According to additional reports though, the Washington Wizards are also a team on the hunt for PG's services. John Wall and Bradley Beal form one of the best backcourt tandems in the league. And with the addition of Paul George, they could be challengers to the Cavs. It's not yet known how far into this the Wizards are, or if PG would commit to them long term.

For a team in need of an additional superstar, however, George would be worth the price of admission. Who knows, if the Wizards somehow make the Finals next season, PG might actually be convinced to stay. For Washington, they must decide quickly if this risk is one they want to take.

With Otto Porter Jr. due for a payday, and George possibly being dealt at any second, the Wiz' don't have a lot of time to play around.
