Paul George Catches Heat Over Explanation for Not Joining the Lakers

The hope was that with Magic Johnson's charisma, a young roster full of talent, and plenty of cash to spend, the Lakers would be able to land a pair of stars lie Paul George and LeBron James.

Felton made slightly more than $2.3 million last season.

With the Oklahoma City Thunder way above the salary cap, the team is unable to partake in the splashy moves that define free agency and have no choice but to improve internally and worry about their own free agents.

The Thunder may miss his scoring occasionally, but Carmelo's departure wouldn't stop OKC from being a playoff team. As of now, Bobby Marks of ESPN said the Thunder have $150 million in luxury tax. Given the massive deals for Russell Westbrook and Steven Adams (in addition to George), there is nearly no scenario in which Oklahoma City could avoid the tax altogether and, at the moment, the contracts for Grant, Andre Roberson, Carmelo Anthony, and others push things into a stratosphere never before seen. One is attempting to trade him, though that seems unlikely.

City will pay Leicester an initial £60m for Algerian star Mahrez with a host of add-ons and extras. The 27-year-old said his transfer request had "gone" in May but left his future open.

The added bonus of buying out Melo's contract would honestly be that he would no longer be on the team. George ended up signing a long-term deal in Oklahoma City.

PG13's short-term and long-term goals have been changed over the past 12 months by the impact which the Thunder franchise and fan base has had on him since his arrival in Oklahoma last summer. "What's more, Anthony is a member of the Banana Boat crew and Los Angeles might be able to get him cheap if a buyout happens". Still, no one can deny the fact the Anthony remains a reliable contributor on the offensive end of the floor.

In his first season with the Thunder, Felton averaged 6.9 points, 2.5 assists, and 16.6 minutes in 82 games.
