Paul George: Watch NBA star CONFIRM Thunder move at Russell Westbrook party

Paul George: Watch NBA star CONFIRM Thunder move at Russell Westbrook party

The bonanza started Saturday night when Durant made a decision to sign a two-year, $61.5 million deal with the stay with the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors, one where he'll make $30.5 million this season.

Teams and players can not formally sign contracts until July 6. He averaged 8.4 points and 3.9 rebounds off the bench last season, seeing his playing time increase in the playoffs versus Utah.

The three-time National Basketball Association champion has been connected to the Cavs, Lakers, 76ers, Rockets and even the Celtics in free agency, but it appears Los Angeles is in the lead for James' services. With Westbrook, George and Adams - along with Grant and Andre Roberson - on multi-year deals, OKC has some stability to evaluate and improve its team over the next three seasons.

Another thing that should have Thunder fans excited abut their chances to keep George in Oklahoma, is a tease from the players' barber, namely that they should be getting ready for some "GREAT NEWS".

George agreed to a four-year, $137 million max contract to stay with the Oklahoma City Thunder, ouch.

Stephanopoulos said he asked Cohen repeatedly if he was considering cooperating with prosecutors in their investigation. In fact, he's stopped answering the question altogether, although he tells Stephanopoulos that "I want to answer".

Kawhi Leonard has followed George's example in demanding a trade and letting it be known that he intends on being a Los Angeles Laker, either this summer or the next when he is an unrestricted free agent. "We can bring it home", George announced amid cheers from around 500 party guests.

"I'm here to stay", George said. Melo was a bust for them last season and opted into his contract for just under $28 million this year.

He flew to Los Angeles on Saturday, creating a frenzy without saying a word. Those three alone will take up something like $100 million each and every season. Teams who might have been scared away by the purple and gold giant waiting in SoCal might find some inspiration in Oklahoma City keeping PG-13.

After acquiring Carmelo Anthony in September, the Thunder appeared to have formed a superteam with the then-reigning league MVP Westbrook. It was also one expensive proposition. The deal reportedly carries a player option on the final season.

But cutting Anthony would significantly help the small-market team in the immediate future.
