Durant, Paul to stay with their teams

Durant, Paul to stay with their teams

He's going to jell with new teammates and free-agent signees Lance Stephenson and Rajon Rondo, who have both been known to be a bit fiery in their careers. This time, it took about 20 hours.

Unless, that is, there is some inspiration to be drawn from the Paul George example. Pulling the trigger on George's deal (s) isn't a awful idea, although it does perhaps feel a bit reactionary after the team lost both Kevin Durant and James Harden. The terms were confirmed by a person familiar with the situation who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal can not become official until the league's offseason moratorium ends this week.

George became an unrestricted free agent on Thursday after declining his player option.

Paul George's new contract is reportedly worth $137 million for 4-years with the Oklahoma City Thunder. George has chose to stay with the Oklahoma City Thunder as he signed a 4 year max contract worth for 137 million dollars.

LA will still be there in three or four years, if he wants to still play there. Philadelphia would instantly vault from conference contender to favorite with James, who could make a strong run at his ninth straight Finals in Year One. Around the league, though, there is skepticism about Oklahoma City's willingness to go quite to this extreme.

The Oklahoma City Thunder need to make a couple more moves in this free agency.

Amlo win to usher in new era in Mexico
The head of Mexico's electoral institute says voting across the country has been proceeding "peacefully, without major incidents". Prime Minister Justin Trudeau meets with outgoing Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto in Lima, Peru on Friday, April 13, 2018.

It was unfortunate, though, that he couldn't win championships every year with the Cavaliers because he picked an terrible time for the Golden State Warriors to become a dynasty and win three of the next four championships.

The Oklahoma City crowd cheers for Paul George during a game between the Thunder and the Utah Jazz.

Not now, anyway, and barring a trade not for at least three years in what will be considered a massive victory for the Thunder and general manager Sam Presti.

Down in Houston, Paul has told Rockets fans the same thing. Instead of being "just" a role player this contract could put Grant in the starting lineup (depending on how the rest of free agency pans out).

Many teams out west don't seem to feel the fear of the Golden State Warriors. While Redick is one of the elite shooters in the National Basketball Association, don't sleep on Ellington, who is basically the same size and averaged more points per possession coming off screens (1.20) than Redick (1.16) last season. All those questions - mostly variations of "how will this work?" - got answered when the Thunder went 40-22 in the final 62 games of the regular season, George got his numbers (nearly 22 points per game) and Westbrook got his again as well (averaging a triple-double).

While ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski believes it is "very likely" that Cousins will sign a two-year deal with the New Orleans Pelicans, there is still reason to believe Los Angeles could be a more appealing destination.
