Similar to James, George knows what he’s getting into if he chooses to stay in Oklahoma City. Carmelo Anthony will pick up his $27.9 million player option for 2018-19, leaving the Thunder locked into their core of Russell Westbrook, Andre Roberson, Steven Adams and Anthony for at least one more season.
The Jazz, because of basketball reasons: The Jazz have a star on the rise in Donovan Mitchell, a Defensive Player of the Year in Rudy Gobert and a number of valuable role players who are under contract for the foreseeable future in Joe Ingles and Jae Crowder. With George on board, they might be able to make the leap into title contention.
Recruitment has already begun in Utah, too:
The Cavaliers, because of LeBron: The Cavaliers probably aren’t an option for George if LeBron leaves, but there’s been interest from Cleveland’s side in the past because of how well they would complement each other.
Brook Lopez, Lakers: Lopez Womens Kevin King Jersey is a decent offensive center who can stretch http://www.officialauthenticpackersprostore.com/Nike-Kevin-King-Jersey.html the floor with 3-point shooting, but he has been part of only two plus-.500 teams in his 10-year career. He could fit with a playoff team if he were willing to come off the bench and accept a fraction of what he was making last year ($22 million).
Montrezl Harrell*, Clippers: Harrell mostly played out of position at center for the depth-desperate Clippers last year, and at 6-8, he belongs more at power forward. Either way, he impressed over the course of last season with his focus and ability to finish as Authentic Lester Hayes Jersey the roll man in the http://www.officialraiderslockerroom.com/elite-lester-hayes-jersey pick-and-roll. He can’t shoot, and that’s a bit of a problem, but he is a good, energetic defender. The Clippers will keep him if the price is reasonable.
Aron Baynes, Celtics: The Celtics will have rookie Robert Williams to develop, but Baynes was a very good fit for this roster. If Boston makes no other significant moves, keeping Baynes on a short, cheap contract would be ideal.
