Amid opt out, Paul George has grown ‘comfortable’ in OKC

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

But the Thunder are able to offer as much as $175.7million over five years.

Oklahoma City forward Paul George will opt out of the final year of his contract and become an unrestricted free agent, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Paul George is chronicling his free agency in a three-part ESPN series, and says the process is overwhelming. The Los Angeles Lakers will receive serious consideration too, sources said.

It was reported that last summer George told the Pacers that he planned to leave the franchise, preferring to join to Lakers.

Heading into the 2017-18 National Basketball Association season, most people thought Paul George would be a rental to the Thunder in pursuit of a tenure with the Lakers in the future. Added he likes Sam Presti, Billy Donovan, and playing with Russell Westbrook.

Robert Lewandowski desperately needs to discover the form he showed in qualifying for Poland to have any chance of advancing. But England could take the pressure off by beating Panama, a result that would guarantee a spot in the second round.

But PG13's upcoming free agency is more than about just him.

There was a report that recently came out where LeBron James' camp believes Paul George will remain in OKC for the future.

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.

The 5-time NBA All-Star is from Palmdale, California, where he was the Golden League Most Valuable Player and the Antelope Valley Press Player of the Year at Knight High School. In Game 6 of the first-round playoff series against Utah that ended Oklahoma City's season, he played fewer minutes than backup Jerami Grant.

"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.
