Paul George was scheduled to announce his decision via a 3-part televised Sportscenter segment, much like Chris Paul did previous year. On each visit to Staples Center to play against the Lakers, George was feted by fans; one even wore a customized Lakers jersey with George's name.
"When I first fell in love with the game, and I'm outside playing in front of the house, I'm not picturing myself playing in an in jersey, or picturing myself in a Thunder jersey", George added. The Pacers instead traded him to the Thunder for a package that included Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis.

Who says stars don't want to play with Westbrook? Now he has left the Clippers after 10 seasons to join Dallas. That deal would save the Thunder more than $30 million in salary and taxes this season, but add about $20 million in 2019-20 salary.
