Medium Large is looking to add motivated individuals with big dreams and a big appetite for success to our direct sales team based in Los Angeles or Orange County.

Westbrook recently hosted a "summer hype house party" in Oklahoma City, which led to suspicion that his 28-year-old running mate would sign with the team.

Paul George is chronicling his free agency in a three-part ESPN series, and says the process is overwhelming. Young went on to say that it's unclear if the party is a recruitment tool (if so - good on you, Russ) or something more, but it's all very interesting.

Of course, Paul George is among those players headling this year's free agency pool.

On Wednesday, Wojnarowski reported the Cavs had been exploring avenues to acquire George, although with him declining his player option, doing so just became tougher for Cleveland.

With four goals from his first three games, the Real Madrid star has been living up to his pre-tournament hype. Suarez might lack the same sharpness of old, but he has still scored twice in Russian Federation .

If this all works out and the Thunder do bring George back, it will be a massive success for Oklahoma City.

George re-signing with the Thunder validates the high praise he had for Russell Westbrook and the organization as a whole throughout the season.

"They honestly check the boxes where I needed those boxes to be checked from what a player wants and needs out of a front office, out of a medical group, out of teammates, out of a coaching staff", George said.

Presti gambled a year ago by trading for George and Carmelo Anthony to join Westbrook in hopes of rejoining the NBA's elite.

George had until Friday night to make the decision on his option year. By not opting into the final year of his deal, Houston appears to be out of the race due to its lack of cap room, but we've learned in the past to never count out Rockets general manager Daryl Morey. "They checked the boxes on what needs to be checked". I've had the same guy (Frank) cutting mine for the past two years and the most I've divulged is "work has been insane..." but hey - maybe PG is just a nicer, more open guy than I am.
