  • 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.

Woj says on Sportcenter that Paul George became "comfortable" playing in OKC. For instance, like if George and LeBron James joined forces in Los Angeles or possibly another destination - catching the world by surprise. For one, he'll likely now sign a max contract, with the Thunder having the option to bring him back on a massive deal. He really likes Sam Presti the GM, Billy Donovan the coach.

Although the actual video has yet to leak, the Lakers' free agency pitch, titled "Two Dreams", reportedly includes the following voiceover, obviously aimed at the Palmdale-native.

The second part airs Thursday, and the third will be shown after he makes his final decision.


"It's a lot of things that go into it - trying to find the right fit, what's the best place for me to raise my kids", George says in the first episode. "A lot is playing into this, so it's a bit overwhelming".

George, 28, had a solid season for the Thunder, averaging 21.9 points, 5.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game.

And Russell Westbrook has been in regular contact with George in an attempt to convince the five-time All-Star to stay. In this picture, George attends the 67th NBA All-Star Game: Team LeBron Vs. Team Stephen at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, on February 18, 2018. 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.

"Here they have made a huge risk in trading for me, knowing I have one year on my deal", George said. "They checked the boxes on what needs to be checked".
