Party in OKC: George stays put

LeBron returns to LA to plot next move as free agency nears

LeBron returns to LA to plot next move as free agency nears

George took the stage at a party in Oklahoma City on Saturday and announced he would be staying with the Thunder. The possibility of LeBron James joining the Lakers this offseason had been a topic of speculation for more than a year, but it's one thing to think it might happen and quite another to experience the actual moment of confirmation.

Compared to his past free-agent decisions, James moved super swiftly - it took him eight days to reveal in 2010 that he was going to Miami, 11 days in 2014 to say he was going back to Cleveland. Catch some of the best that the social app had to offer down below. "Talk about Paul George and some of the beset players already being in the Western Conference".

Hours before National Basketball Association free agency opened with the three-time champion as its most coveted prize, James returned today to Southern California, where he has two homes and a film production company.

Los Angeles is among the teams in the mix to land James after his agent told the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday that he will not exercise his $35.6 million contract option for next season.

The second year is at Baynes' option, meaning he could be a free agent again next summer. Pulling the trigger on George's deal (s) isn't a bad idea, although it does perhaps feel a bit reactionary after the team lost both Kevin Durant and James Harden.

Meanwhile, Durant, the NBA's new movable feast, just left $100 million on the table in Golden State, declining the security of a four-year $160 million contract for two years and $61.5 million - with an opt-out next summer. After all, he let the whole city of Los Angeles down.

It was unfortunate, though, that he couldn't win championships every year with the Cavaliers because he picked an terrible time for the Golden State Warriors to become a dynasty and win three of the next four championships.

Grant, 24, averaged 8.4 points and 3.9 rebounds in 20.3 minutes per game for the Thunder last season, his first full year in Oklahoma City. The one exception would be waiving Kyle Singler and stretching the remaining $5 million guaranteed on his contract over the next five seasons, reducing his cap hit to a little less than $1 million.

Now Paul George is saying that the Lakers screwed up their chance to bring him home to L.A. Instead, James became the latest superstar to don the familiar purple-and-gold uniform, following the likes of Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O'Neal, Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Wilt Chamberlain.
