A college basketball trade

Well, not really, but sort of.

Word is 6-foot-7 Paul George will join the 'Dogs incoming recruiting class, and 6-7 (he's not really 6-8) James Tchana might be transferring.

LA Times on George
The Bee on George
Fox Sports on Tchana

Seems like quite an upgrade in on-the-floor ability, but we've gotta wish Tchana the best -- he's always seemed like a real good guy, but just got lost in the shuffle for minutes. Rumor a while back was a transfer to UC-Riverside with former 'Dogs assistant Vonn Webb (we shall see).

George was possibly Pepperdine's best recruit, but decided against his choice to go there when Vance Walberg (former Clovis West HS/Fresno City College coach) resigned as Pepperdine coach.

Along with Rainier Beach-Seattle's Reggie Moore and Mychal Ladd and Newark Memorial's Chris Jones, George should give the 'Dogs a great foundation for the next several years.
