Instead, George is set to rejoin the Thunder to play alongside former league MVP Russell Westbrook in hopes of building a title contender in Oklahoma City. This is a year after PG said he wanted to go to Los Angeles, so credit to Westy and the OKC guys to pry him away. This is a party that members of the Thunder front office will reportedly attend and - who knows - possibly George himself.
George will be an unrestricted free agent at midnight ET after declining his player option on Thursday. The trade looked lopsided in favor of the Thunder at the time, but Oladipo's ascendence to All-Star status combined with OKC's up-and-down season evened the scales a bit.
Projecting Grant's new deal as starting around $9 million if he re-signs and filling out the roster with minimum-salary contracts for the Thunder's three 2018 second-round picks (who will help save money if signed to National Basketball Association contracts) would push the team salary to more than $159 million.

The Thunder's current salary for next season stands at $156 million, which is $32 million over the tax line. The hope in Oklahoma City is that this year, they'll mesh together and become a significant threat in the National Basketball Association.
Beyond that, the Thunder would likely have to trade rotation players to save money next season.
ESPN's Ramona Shelburne, on The Dan Patrick Show Friday, actually said that signs are "pointing to" George staying in Oklahoma City.
Grant was a key reserve for the Thunder last season scoring eight points (on 54 percent shooting) and four rebounds a contest in 20 minutes.
