The Los Angeles Lakers have added JaVale McGee, Rajon Rondo and Lance Stephenson in a weird set of roster decisions since signing LeBron James.

In the first part, George hinted he may have unfinished business with OKC after a disappointing first season with them, while in the second part, he spoke of his desire to help a team win a championship, albeit in a mainly Lakers-focused segment. As such, the Thunder is likely set at the point guard position for the 2018-19 season.

The Thunder's agreed to terms with Raymond Felton on Thursday morning to return to Oklahoma on a one-year, $2.4 million deal that reportedly has pushed their luxury tax bill (for player payments made above the soft cap) above the $150 million mark - unprecedented in the history of the league.

Felton will do a lot for the Thunder on the court, but his value is also in his personality.

By ditching Melo they would cut that back by almost a third. Unfortunately, wasn't traded to Lakers. I feel this is the best and ideal opportunity to cement myself and bring a championship where it hasn't been brought. "In Oklahoma, I think there is something I can create there".

This is a huge result for the Thunder, as they've managed to keep George in Oklahoma and away from his desire to play in his hometown of Los Angeles with the Lakers. Russ is somebody I can win with and vice versa. I was traded to Oklahoma.

And a much, much cheaper one at that. "And I'm excited. I'm excited to go along this journey and really go all in on this experience".

The Lakers, feeling that George would sign this summer as a free agent, opted not to pay that price, and he was instead sent to the Thunder in exchange for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis.
