While at the adidas Store in Taguig, Philippines on Sunday, Mitchell made a pitch to the five-time All-Star.
“I think a guy like [George]—and I single him out specifically—would thrive in our organization,” Mitchell said (via CNN Philippines).

“We want to win, we’re not selfish. I’m not the type of guy who’s kind of like, Oh, it’s my team. I’m a rookie, a second-year player. He’s an All-Star.
“If he comes in, it’s gonna make our life easier in the offensive end. He’s a great defender.
“We have guys who want to play with him. We went though a tough first series because of him.
“We have guys that understand what it takes. If we don’t score 30, it’s not the end of the world to us.
“So I think a guy like him—and I single him out specifically—would thrive in our organization.”
