A "Paul George Isn't Re-Signing With OKC" Collection

Source Thunder’s Paul George decides to become free agent

Of course, for numerous big names, free agency will mostly be a formality as they promptly re-sign with their current teams. George opted out of his $20.7 million salary with Oklahoma City for the 2018-19, making him an unrestricted free agent. George averaged 21.9 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 3.3 assists in 79 games for the Thunder last season. Trading for George a year ago was panned by some critics, presumably because of the belief that he was already focused on joining his hometown Los Angeles Lakers in free agency. OKC had a true superstar in Russell Westbrook, but Oklahoma City is not Los Angeles. That's why many believed if he did stay in Oklahoma City, it would be in the form of a 1-and-1 deal, similar to the one Kevin Durant recently signed with the Warriors.

The Sixers can cross one free agent off their wish list.

For the past year, George was presumed to be a lock to sign with the Lakers, who also were positioning themselves to chase after LeBron James.

"I'm here to stay", George told the crowd at the party. He signed a four-year, $137 million deal.

The Lakers seemed intent on landing two max players this summer, but they absolutely won by not landing George for $30-plus million a year. It's a damaging blow to the Lakers' hopes of forming their own super team, with the addition of LeBron James seemingly resting on their ability to add star pieces before he commits.

Redick made $23 million last season.

James spent the week vacationing in Anguilla, and hopped aboard a private Gulfstream jet in the morning to fly to the Los Angeles area.

IN chose the latter and picked up Victor Oladipo, who was recently named the league's Most Improved Player at the recent "NBA Awards Show".

Despite 2016-17 MVP Russell Westbrook and 10-time All-Star Carmelo Anthony, the Thunder were bounced by the Utah Jazz in the first round of the playoffs after finishing the regular season at 48-34. Bron is expected to announce where he'll sign on Tuesday.

In moves calculated to address the possible loss of Leonard in a trade, the Spurs agreed to deals Saturday with free agents Rudy Gay (one year, $10 million) and Marco Belinelli of the Philadelphia 76ers (two years, $12 million).
