LeBron James free agency tracker

The concept of James joining the Lakers included teaming with Paul George, a hometown high scoring forward, and perhaps either guard Chris Paul or Kawhi Leonard, another forward who is seeking a trade from the San Antonio Spurs and has his eyes on Los Angeles.

George confirmed the deal at a party hosted by Russell Westbrook in OKC.

Despite the worst year of his career, Melo is still one of the best scorers the National Basketball Association has ever seen. The announcement was a big surprise to many who thought, from the moment George was traded from IN to OKC last June, would sign with the Lakers this summer.

"That's always been, I feel with players, they want that option", George said at exit interviews after the season. Then he was traded off to the Oklahoma City Thunder and the rest is history.

Rumor: With Paul George closer to staying in Oklahoma City, the Lakers may chase DeMarcus Cousins.

Another chimney was discovered nearby and helicopters carrying food, water and medical supplies were dispatched to the area. The dramatic wait has transfixed Thailand , dominating front pages of newspapers and grabbing worldwide headlines.

As OKC general manager Sam Presti noted in his draft news conference, Thunder officials have been in communication with George and his representatives since the end of the season.

Kevin Durant will re-sign with Golden State for two years, the New York Times reported, keeping the two-time NBA Finals Most Valuable Player with a club that has won three of the past four crowns and seeks a fifth consecutive trip to the finals next year.

After acquiring Carmelo Anthony in September, the Thunder appeared to have formed a superteam with the then-reigning MVP. He proceeded to explain why George's contract decision made little sense.

The Houston Chronicle and ESPN reported Paul's deal to reunite with NBA Most Valuable Player and scoring champion James Harden will be for four years at $160 million. It was the biggest shock of National Basketball Association free agency so far, but there are still plenty of quality players still available.

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". The team could significantly reduce their tax bill if they waive him via the stretch provision. Last season he was 29% from downtown (which is right around his career average of 30%), but the previous season he was shooting 37% a clip from that range.
