During one of Oklahoma City's trips to Los Angeles, Westbrook was asked if he felt that the season was a sales pitch to George.

The all-star swingman announced his attention on Saturday night on stage at party hosted by teammate Russell Westbrook.

The Los Angeles Lakers appear to be the biggest threat to the Thunder as they've held an interest in the five-time All-Star for over a year now.

There had been much speculation leading up to the decision that George had been leaning toward re-signing with the Thunder.

Were he to sign with any National Basketball Association team other than Oklahoma City, the max contract available to him would span four years and pay $130 million, $46 million less than the Thunder can pay him.

The deal won't become official until the league's annual moratorium on free agent signings ends July 6, but George's decision removes one of the best free agents from the market. He will reportedly have a player option included in the contract.

Trump Threatens To Hit Harley-Davidson With Taxes If It Moves Overseas
Of course, Trump had something to Tweet about it and decided to make his opinion public. the president had a lot to say about it. Surprised that Harley-Davidson, of all companies, would be the first to wave the White Flag.

"If you wanted to stay in Oklahoma City, you're guaranteed nearly $176 million over five years", Mintz said. But considering the Thunder would be well north of $25 million over the luxury tax line in that scenario, that would take Oklahoma City's combined payroll and luxury taxes up to roughly $255 million.

Last year, Oklahoma City traded for PG13 when the free agency period began. He spent a little more than two seasons in Philadelphia before he was traded to the Thunder in 2016. The hope in Oklahoma City is that this year, they'll mesh together and become a significant threat in the National Basketball Association.

But you know what, it ain't my money.

In his year with Oklahoma City, George averaged 21.9 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 3.3 assists per game.

The hope here is that Oklahoma City is able to somehow overcome last season's struggles.
