NBA Free Agency Started

Paul George’s Sit-down With Dwyane Wade Suggests He Is Signing With the Lakers Paul George’s Sit-down With Dwyane Wade Suggests He Is Signing With the Lakers

He was traded to the Thunder previous year from the Indiana Pacers, but declined to exercise his player option with Oklahoma for 2018-19, making him an unrestricted free agent.

The Thunder are holding a party at the house of Russell Westbrook on the eve of free agency opening.

Leonard was close to a new $20 million shoe deal four months ago, but the belief is that he could earn much more in a bigger media market than San Antonio, and could earn most of all by being in LA.

Durant has made a decision to sign a two-year deal with the Golden State Warriors, a person familiar with the situation told the AP on condition of anonymity Saturday because the deal can not become official until the league's offseason moratorium ends on Friday. "Perhaps the Los Angeles Lakers will be willing to toss him a lucrative one-year deal if they strike out on all of their free agent targets".

Paul George said Saturday night, June 30, he is planning on remaining with the Oklahoma City Thunder, just two days after announcing he was becoming a free agent, ESPN reported on Saturday night.

And all those clubs - Golden State, Oklahoma City, Houston, the Lakers, even Denver by locking up Nikola Jokic for $150 million and Will Barton for $54 million - could definitively say they were thrilled.

Grant was frequently named by National Basketball Association writers as they compiled lists of the 50 best free agents this offseason.

Paul averaged 18.6 points and 7.9 assists last season with the Rockets, who went 65-17 led by Paul and newly minted NBA MVP James Harden.

Lance Stephenson is joining LeBron James in Los Angeles.

On the same day that LeBron James travelling to Los Angeles put Vegas oddmakers in a tizzy, James' fellow elite free agent Paul George might be making some travel news of his own.

According to one report, the Bucks might be motivated to conduct a sign-and-trade involving the Duke alum.

And fans were quick to express their delight after George committed his future with Thunder.

Grant is a stout defender and he has played in more games over the last two years than any other two-year stretch in his career.

That was the first domino to fall for the Lakers, and it was a positive sign as it would allow for them to sign the 14-time All-Star outright rather than acquiring him via trade.

The Thunder will regret that contract by the end of it and the Lakers will look back on not getting him as a big win.

More to the point, LeBron must love him and he'll take a one-year deal. But it's the one title that Clevelanders will always thank James for - that one in 2016 when the team was facing a 3-1 deficit in the series, won the last three games to become the first team to ever win a championship series down 3-1, and bring the city its first professional title in the major sports since 1964.
