Sabonis had just finished his rookie season and his playing time had diminished as the season wore on. The wide-eyes emoji was favored by other players, including Lakers draftee Moritz Wagner, as well as the Kings' Buddy Hield, the Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic and free agent Marreese Speights. OKC gave up real assets (especially considering Victor Oladipo's emergence as a star in his own right), meaning the Lakers could sit back and hold onto their picks and young players until George came to L.A.in a year. ESPN reported the Croatian native had agreed to a one-year deal worth $6.5 million. According to Griffin, the four-time NBA MVP believes "a great deal" in New Orleans Pelicans big man DeMarcus Cousins.
Yet, to remain competitive moving forward, they had to pay George and they had to pay him now.
As if getting through one another won't be tough enough, James is now coming to join the party. The only question about George's new deal was how long it would be for, with most anticipating a two or three-year deal with a player option for the final year.
While the reason for the party wasn't clear, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski pointed to something else going on in Oklahoma City on Friday. Free agency began at 12:01 a.m. Sunday. He has shown the ability to guard positions 1-5 and with an improved shot in the corner, can help the Thunder tremendously.
More stunning is what happened Saturday night, when George committed without even giving the Los Angeles Lakers, the team of his youth, a meeting.
Meanwhile, George played well in OKC, but the Thunder got off to a bad start, struggled to find its footing, eventually got better and ended up with the same record as Indiana.
In Houston, Paul has told Rockets fans the same thing.
Houston took Golden State to seven games in the Western Conference finals back in May.
Grant was a key reserve for the Thunder last season scoring eight points (on 54 percent shooting) and four rebounds a contest in 20 minutes.
Los Angeles also provides James with a larger platform for his business interests and social activism. Lakers fans were holding onto hope that his return to his hometown would mark a new era for the franchise, with many singing his praises before anything was set in stone.
Embiid tweeted, "The Lakers are FOREVER gonna be Kobe's and Magic's team...."
