Could Paul George's free agency documentary signal a departure from OKC?

Lakers Rumors: LA's Pitch to Sign Paul George Has Been Revealed

The Oklahoma City Thunder are growing increasingly optimistic about their chances of re-signing him.

Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Paul George reportedly informed the team he will opt out of his $20.7 million player option for the 2018-19 season Thursday, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Woj says on Sportcenter that Paul George became "comfortable" playing in OKC.

George of course, is from Palmdale, which is just over 60 miles north of Los Angeles as the Lakers look to add a homegrown star to their ranks in a bid for their first championship since 2010.

However, the site says that George is "seriously interested in returning to the Thunder in free agency".

"This inside story is just another way that SportsCenter will offer distinctive content on free agency, one of the biggest offseason stories in the National Basketball Association", said David Roberts, ESPN vice president, network content, who oversees the 6 p.m. SportsCenter. Part three will air following his free agency decision - who knows what that will consist of just yet?

Despite George opting out of his deal with the Thunder, this comfort that he has developed with the franchise bodes well for a re-signing.

Will Carmelo Anthony's opt-in decision affect what Paul George does next in OKC?

And Russell Westbrook has been in regular contact with George in an attempt to convince the five-time All-Star to stay.

Trying to find the right fit, what's the best place for me to raise my kids, a lot is playing into this, so it's a bit overwhelming...

"Here they have made a huge risk in trading for me, knowing I have one year on my deal", George said, as transcribed by Brett Dawson of The Oklahoman. "They checked the boxes on what needs to be checked".
