Questions That Already Got Answered in 2018 NBA Free Agency

Questions That Already Got Answered in 2018 NBA Free Agency”

George over the weekend signed on long-term with the Thunder, at least three years, with a path to a maximum-contract extension after two years, perhaps making it a seven-year deal.

If George opts to do this, the full scope of his commitment to Oklahoma City could end up being for seven years and almost $300 million. Having a high-priced deal isn't Anthony's fault; blame it on the New York Knicks and Phil Jackson, the ones who orchestrated that contract. Rumors swirled that George will stay with the Thunder after Westbrook flew back to Oklahoma City amid a family vacation in Hawaii to arrange the party.

Indeed, what we saw from Leonard in the past year, as his mysterious quad injury torpedoed his season and dragged the Spurs organization down with it, was a player who came off as stubborn and hard-headed. But as a restricted free agent, he would have received an offer sheet for something like the two-year, $18 million deal he has reportedly agreed to with New Orleans.

But Lakers fans were not happy with George's snub.

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. James loves the Hollywood lights, and with two homes in the Los Angeles area as well as a film production company, he has already established some roots in the land of movie stars and slow-moving traffic.

George committed to remain with the Thunder, according to multiple media reports. George took the stage at that party, grabbed a microphone and delivered four words that shocked many. However, many within National Basketball Association circles, and even fans, don't believe that Anthony will finish, or possibly even start, the 2018-19 season with the Thunder, and that he will be either traded or bought out. Basically, unless you're the Lakers, Pacers, Kings, Mavericks, Bulls or Hawks, you've probably got to set your sights a little lower on the totem pole.

The star forward seemed destined for Los Angeles last year when it was reported the Lakers were his preference, but after a year with the Thunder, George apparently is seriously considering giving it another go with Russell Westbrook and Co. Even the Lakers, it could be argued, bought George's desire to join the team enough to resist trading for him, thinking he could be signed this summer. OKC returns their core players that helped them to the fourth seed in the west last season. It's a one-year rental.

Philadelphia has been one of the teams often mentioned as a club that would pursue James this summer, and that still may be the case.
