  • Lakers Rumors: LA's Pitch to Sign Paul George Has Been Revealed

This one chronicles his rise to National Basketball Association stardom - including his 2014 injury, his time in IN, his eventual trade to Oklahoma City, and more.

George of course, is from Palmdale, which is just over 60 miles north of Los Angeles as the Lakers look to add a homegrown star to their ranks in a bid for their first championship since 2010.

In that special, George said that if he did opt out, he would be both overwhelmed by and looking forward to that free agency experience. "A lot is playing into this, so it's a bit overwhelming". George will reach 10 years of service in 2020, making him eligible to sign a four-year, $169 million maximum contract with a team with cap space. I hope I make the majority of the people happy, but ultimately, it's my decision, and I want to be the happiest that I can be with that decision. "And I'm excited. I'm excited to go through this journey". Acquired by the team in a trade with the Indiana Pacers, George averaged 21.9 points, 5.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 79 games this season for the Thunder. He is expected to miss six to eight weeks as he recovers from the injury.

Compounding the worries for African supporters is that, aside from Senegal , the continent's five teams largely aren't scoring. The FIFA World Cup 2018 Poland vs Senegal match will be shown on Sony Ten SD and HD, Sony Ten 3 SD and HD, Sony ESPN SD.

And Russell Westbrook has been in regular contact with George in an attempt to convince the five-time All-Star to stay. It didn't work out as planned.

A year ago, George was locked in on heading to L.A. Now, that is very much in doubt. George scored just five points on 2-of-16 shooting in a Game 6 playoff loss to the Utah Jazz, and OKC failed to advance past the first round for the second straight season. The Oklahoma City Thunder are growing increasingly optimistic about their chances of re-signing him.

"Here they have made a huge risk in trading for me, knowing I have one year on my deal", George said.
