ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski Says Paul George’s "Thinking Has Changed"

Lakers Rumors: LA's Pitch to Sign Paul George Has Been Revealed

George is eligible to sign a five-year, $176 million contract extension this summer with Thunder.

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George has informed the team that he will opt out of his contract, becoming an unrestricted free agent, reports ESPN.com's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Many have assumed for years that Paul George is destined to end up with the Los Angeles Lakers, and that could very well come to fruition this summer. For one, he'll likely now sign a max contract, with the Thunder having the option to bring him back on a massive deal.

Though some are starting to believe George might actually stay with the Thunder, it's seemed like a foregone conclusion for more than a year now that he is headed to the Lakers, his hometown team. Added he likes Sam Presti, Billy Donovan, and playing with Russell Westbrook.

George, a native of Southern California, and LeBron James are the focus of the Lakers free agent recruiting efforts. Part three will air following his free agency decision - who knows what that will consist of just yet? "A lot is playing into this, so it's a bit overwhelming".

The South Americans pounded Poland , 3-0, on Sunday to stave off elimination and earn a chance to move on the final matchday. This is a sport that rewards hard work and based on Senegal's performance, there is no doubt the win was fully deserved.


All eyes will be on Paul George's next decision.

George did not make as big of an impact as expected in his first season with the Thunder, and his last game of the year was arguably his worst.

"Here they have made a huge risk in trading for me, knowing I have one year on my deal", George said, as transcribed by Brett Dawson of 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 a coaching staff", George said on April 28.
