Paul George is about to re-sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Paul George is headed back to Oklahoma City.

If Paul George doesn't re-sign with the Thunder, nobody will be more shocked about it than Russell Westbrook.

"This is a friendship decision to stay in OKC as much as anything", one rival executive said about the friendship between George and Westbrook.

Germany Have Been Knocked Out Of The 2018 World Cup
But a 2-0 defeat to South Korea in the third group game sealed their fate and sees them heading home early. After a "dark day" for German football, as Neuer put it, the future looks bright.

After the 2016-17 season, George grew frustrated with the Pacers' lack of roster improvements and requested a trade out of IN, with the Los Angeles Lakers his preferred destination. Maxing out George will push the Thunder far over the luxury-tax line if they re-sign key reserve Jerami Grant.

By not signing a contract that would allow him to opt out after two seasons, when George would reach 10 years of service time, he bypassed the opportunity to see a significant increase in salary.

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

"If you wanted to stay in Oklahoma City, you're guaranteed nearly $176 million over five years", Mintz said.

End of an era: Toys 'R' Us stores close for good
The famed toy emporium filed for bankruptcy last fall and announced it would be shutting down all locations across America in March.

While the reason for the party wasn't clear, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski pointed to something else going on in Oklahoma City on Friday. That doesn't necessarily mean he'll be leaving the Thunder per se, but it does make it seem like the Lakers are a more likely fit for him in the 2018-19 season and beyond.

The Clippers also will soon meet with guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who played for the Lakers last season, an executive said. OKC returns their core players that helped them to the fourth seed in the west last season.

Last season, Grant averaged 8.4 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game on 53.5 percent shooting from the field, including 29.1 percent from three.
