Paul George Agrees to $137 Million Contract with Oklahoma City Thunder ⚡️

As Paul George and Jerami Grant return Thunder face largest tax bill

After the 2016-17 season, George grew frustrated with the Pacers' lack of roster improvements and requested a trade out of IN, with the Los Angeles Lakers his preferred destination.

During the season, George spoke openly about how he'd always wanted to play for the Lakers, but also was keeping an open mind about the Thunder.

The 24-year-old forward has made great strides during his two seasons in Oklahoma City, and he figures to play a big part in where the team goes from here.

We tried to surround him with the right players to take advantage of that talent, it is a talent that no other team has. Spain midfielder David Silva said his side will be treating the match "as if we were playing against Brazil".

For the Thunder, they'll not only be making money with the duo of Westbrook and George, they'll be spending it. George and Westbrook will cost over $30 million each. George smiled. Westbrook heard them and interrupted with a scowl, yelling, "Paul ain't going nowhere!"

"I want to be a champion", George said, as transcribed by The Oklahoman.

"They honestly check the boxes where I needed those boxes to be checked from what a player wants and needs out of a front office, out of a medical group, out of teammates, out of coaching staff".

Epic explained why it was taken offline shortly after the limited time mode was taken off the game. Due to this, we'll be disabling Final Fight and re-enabling the 50v50 LTM at 10AM EDT.

This was only heightened after the team had cleared enough salary cap space to ink two max contract slots to use in free agency that brought up the possibility of All-Star LeBron James joining him in Los Angeles.

Instead, the Thunder lost in the first round of the playoffs.

The Lakers seemed to be the frontrunners in the Paul George sweepstakes this week. After all, president of basketball operations Magic Johnson figures to be a persuasive presence in free agent meetings. I know who I am as a player, and I just want to help a team win, and I feel comfortable doing so with (Russell Westbrook). Now he has left the Clippers after 10 seasons to join Dallas.

Serena Williams will be seeded at Wimbledon
She made it to the fourth round where she would have faced Maria Sharapova but she was forced to withdraw with injury. Williams has played in three tournaments since her daughter Alexis was born in September a year ago .

The Thunder took a gamble last offseason in acquiring George from the Indiana Pacers with no assurances that he would stick around. Bradley had season-ending surgery to fix abdominal muscles.
