  • Watch Paul George announce he's staying in OKC on stage with Russell Westbrook

Grant was a key reserve for the Thunder last season scoring eight points (on 54 percent shooting) and four rebounds a contest in 20 minutes.

All-Star forward Paul George, considered one of the most prized commodities on the free agent market this offseason, has signed a max contract to remain with the Oklahoma City Thunder, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. He was traded to the Thunder a year ago from the Indiana Pacers, but declined to exercise his player option with Oklahoma for 2018-19, making him an unrestricted free agent.

Paul George is headed back to Oklahoma City. Now what for the Oklahoma City Thunder?

George isn't just staying short-term either.

"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. In a way, it's like I want to come here, and play for the home team and put a Lakers jersey on.

Instead, the Thunder lost in the first round of the playoffs.

Meanwhile, DeAndre Jordan, who opted out of a $24.1 million deal with the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday, agreed to a similar deal for a little less money to play for the Dallas Mavericks, according to an National Basketball Association official not authorized to speak publicly. Now he has left the Clippers after 10 seasons to join Dallas.

It has pushed the Lakers to move slightly in another direction with their sole focus based on bringing aboard James, who they are reportedly meeting on Saturday night at the start of the free agency period. Bradley had season-ending surgery to fix abdominal muscles.

Chris Paul, meanwhile, was traded in exchange for 8 players by the Clippers last summer after he opted into the final year of his 5-year, $107-million deal with them.
