Jerami Grant reportedly agrees to new three-year contact with Thunder

However, Anthony's stint in Oklahoma City may not last long, and rumors are now circulating that the Thunder may consider buying out his contract or trading him to another team.

The Thunder are holding a party at the house of Russell Westbrook on the eve of free agency opening.

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. Grant can agree to his new contract but cannot sign it until after July 6 as part of the NBA's July moratorium. Alex Abrines ($5.5 million in the final season of his contract) and Patrick Patterson ($5.5 million, with a $5.7 million player option for 2019-20) could be replaced more cheaply in free agency, but both played regular minutes last season and Patterson in particular may be hard to trade without giving up draft-pick compensation. Even in the days before that trade, George was telling friends he eventually would wind up with the Lakers.

South Korea vs. Germany
Loew was appointed national team coach after the 2006 World Cup in Germany , when he was assistant to Juergen Klinsmann. That goal was huge for Mexico , as they would advance to the knockout stage despite losing to Sweden .

From Oklahoma City's perspective, this was quite a coup. But does he have enough time to let a group of unproven players with no postseason experience develop into a title contender? They're keeping Jerami Grant for $27 million over three years, which in this National Basketball Association seems like a bargain.

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

There were other teams he could've pursued in hopes to contend for a championship as those teams were the Los Angeles Lakers, Philadelphia 76ers, Houston Rockets, and the Boston Celtics.

Joe Jackson Dead At 89
Joe Jackson attends the 2017 Soul Train Awards, presented by BET, at the Orleans Arena on November 5, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Jermaine told the Daily Mail June 20 that he and his siblings were struggling to get information on their father's condition.

His family nearly certainly factored into it, as James said they would.

If both James and Cousins sign with Los Angeles, it would be a nice rotation alongside Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram - especially if they can bring back restricted free agent Julius Randle. George declared that he wanted out of IN with a declared destination of Los Angeles last summer, and OKC traded for him anyway. It's a one-year rental. Shocking as that was to Lakers fans who had fallen in love with him, it's entirely reasonable based on his fit with LeBron (not ideal) and the money he would have needed.

George also considered playing for his hometown Los Angeles Lakers.

NBA Draft: Who is Svi Mykhailiuk, the Lakers' 47th pick?
With outside shooting being a crucial part of the game in the modern NBA , Wagner seems to have stood out to Pelinka and company. He joined Larry Bird and Hakeem Olajuwon as the only players to have 20 points and 15 rebounds in a national semifinal.

George committed to remain with the Thunder, according to multiple media reports. Trae Young, just acquired by the Hawks in a major draft-day deal with the Mavericks, had a more clearly stunned reaction, saying, "Whaaaaaaaat", with a flushed-face emoji. He's the next superstar to follow in the legacy that Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West, Shaquille O'Neal, Kobe Bryant and Magic Johnson built for the Lakers.
