Paul George suggests he could stay with OKC Thunder beyond next season

Paul George suggests he could stay with OKC Thunder beyond next season

Before Paul George was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder earlier this month, reports surfaced suggesting whichever team that dealt for him was basically going to acquire a rental, that after next season he will not only opt out to become a free agent, but leave wherever he is playing for his hometown L.A. Lakers.

Well, that may not have been entirely true. Now in OKC, George is singing a much different tune.

Read what he told Sports Illustrated this week:

If we get a killer season in Oklahoma, we make the conference finals or upset the Warriors or do something crazy, I’d be dumb to want to leave that... It’s too early for L.A.... It would have to be a situation where the ball gets rolling and guys are hopping on. This guy commits, that guy commits. ‘Oh s—, now there’s a team forming.’ It has to be like that.

The Wizards and other teams made a run at George before he was ultimately sent to the Thunder to team up with Russell Westbrook. And part of the debate while those rumors were out there was whether it would be worth trading for just one year of George. Now it sounds like the Thunder are in pretty good shape. If George and Westbrook go on a deep playoff run, which is entirely possible, then he may stick around.

Ath the Wizards' shootaround Tuesday ahead of a big matchup with the 40-6 Bucks, Wall launched a baseline three while sitting on a chair and drilled it. 

Sure the shot was cool, but the best part was when he leaned back with his coffee in hand like he'd done it a thousand times before. 

Wall has been sidelined all season recovering from Achilles surgery, and while the team has yet to completely rule him out for the rest of the year, there isn't an expectation he returns before next season. 

Meanwhile, Wall's been showing promising signs in his recovery process, most notably his time at practice driving past defenders and trash-talking with a trainer
