Jerami Grant Returning to Thunder on 3-Year, $27 Million Deal

Thunder star guard Russell Westbrook reportedly threw a party Saturday night in Oklahoma City, perhaps not coincidentally the same night potential free agent swingman Paul George was coming to town.
As OKC general manager Sam Presti noted in his draft news conference, Thunder officials have been in communication with George and his representatives since the end of the season.
The Lakers seemed intent on landing two max players this summer, but they absolutely won by not landing George for $30-plus million a year. In fact, reports suggest that he had informed the team early on in the process that he was going to stay with the franchise in order to help them navigate more smoothly through the free-agent market.
This is definitely the biggest indication that the 28-year-old is likely to stay with the Thunder next season.
For the Lakers, losing George without even getting a chance to meet with him has to be a disappointment.

However, stranger things have happened in the past.
