Paul George commits to re-sign with Oklahoma City Thunder

Paul George commits to re-sign with Oklahoma City Thunder

James' move to the Western Conference will end his dominance of the Eastern Conference: Whether Miami or Cleveland, James' teams have represented the East in the NBA Finals for eight consecutive seasons.

After experiencing several losing seasons without a chance at the postseason, Lakers fans were full of excitement. It would certainly help if they're successful in luring LeBron James and/or concluding a trade for Kawhi Leonard.

Durant will be paid about $30.5 million this coming season, about $5 million less than he could have commanded if the deal was structured differently.

Two teams have been mentioned as realistic options for LeBron James in free agency this summer. In George's final game, one in which Westbrook scored 46 points on 43 shots, he finished with just five points on 2-of-16 shooting.

James' four-year, $154 million contract will net him over $35 million each season, according to Bobby Marks of ESPN.

However, the lure of Los Angeles and the glitz of the Lakers won out.

China eager to defuse trade pressures
In commodity markets, gold was seemingly no longer considered a safe haven by investors and hit its lowest in over six months. Losses were led by China, where Shenzen-listed blue chips sank 2.2 percent to stand a whisker above 13-month lows.

News of the decision breaking was a bit of a startling one.

James also thanked Northeast Ohio on Instagram. That put them in the running to sign not just James, but potentially a few other strong players.

The nice thing about the new National Basketball Association is that every season is temporary.

George will be an unrestricted free agent at midnight ET after declining his player option on Thursday.

"The Lakers are FOREVER gonna be Kobe's and Magic's team". But if the Lakers become a legitimate threat to sign Cousins, it'll be interesting to see if the Pelicans are pressured to offer him a longer-term deal.

The Lakers had a large amount of cap space to work with. If the Lakers strike out this summer, they are likely to try to make a splash in the summer of 2019.
