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.
George's contract, along with Carmelo Anthony opting into the final year of his contract puts the Thunder well into the luxury tax for next season.
Westbrook left his vacation early to host the party, and with so many people related to the Thunder there, it sure gives the impression we'll be seeing George re-up with OKC on a new contract.
Veteran swingman Paul George was born and raised in the Los Angeles area, and he's a legend in the eyes of the fans that show up to support the Lakers at Staples Center. George can come to a verbal agreement beginning at midnight tonight, but cannot sign until July 6.

Around the league, though, there is skepticism about Oklahoma City's willingness to go quite to this extreme. That doesn't necessarily mean he'll be leaving the Thunder per se, but it does make it seem like the Lakers are a more likely fit for him in the 2018-19 season and beyond.
George listed other possibilities - Boston and the Clippers - but the seven-minute episode focused largely on his love for the Lakers and the pursuit by the Thunder to keep him in Oklahoma City.
