Paul George focused on legacy, improving Lakers

Paul George Gordon Hayward NBA

Kevin Durant missed some time and Kawhi Leonard and LeBron James had great MVP caliber years.

For Houston's James Harden, there was affirmation.

According to Sam Amick of USA Today, Paul George wants to join the team that his idol, Kobe Bryant, led for years.

Included in the third All-NBA team were Chicago Bulls' Jimmy Butler, Golden State Warriors' Draymond Green, Toronto Raptors' DeMar DeRozan, Washington Wizards' John Wall and DeAndre Jordan of the Los Angeles Clippers. It would also give other National Basketball Association teams (including the Thunder) an additional year to maneuver under the ever-rising salary cap in order to make a pitch to Hayward in 2018.

Thanks to the current NBA CBA, the DVPE contract for a new team to sign one of these guys is around 4 years/$168 million.

Finally, we have one answer.

Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas made the All-NBA second team, but because he wasn't originally drafted by the Celtics or wasn't traded to Boston on his original rookie deal, he's also not eligible to be a super-max player.

Since George, 27, was not voted on these All-NBA teams, he is not eligible to sign the Designated Veteran Player Extension with the Pacers in July.

George is under contract with the Pacers next season and has a $20.7 million player option for the 2018-19 season.

"These opportunities don't come around very much", Hayward said earlier this month.

Davis appeared on 95 of the 100 ballots; Gobert appeared on 91.

The Heat have players other teams would desire like Hassan Whiteside, Goran Dragic, Justise Winslow, Josh Richardson and Tyler Johnson, some more so than others.

In the past, a player signing a maximum-level contract with a new team left an extra year of guaranteed money on the table, along with taking a slight hit on an annual basis. Just grateful to be a part of the list. "That's one of the things that I'm looking forward, feel 100 percent to be back on the field and play the game".

"I think with Boston and L.A. getting No. 1 and No. 2, I think it makes it highly unlikely that Butler and George are involved in trades with those two teams", Wojnarowski said when asked about "big moves" from the Celtics and Lakers.

Finalists for other awards, including MVP, Rookie of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year, Sixth Man, most improved player and Coach of the Year will be announced Friday night. All other NBA awards will be awarded at the first-ever NBA Awards Show on June 26 in NY.
