Paul George on Joining Lakers Next Year: ‘We’ll See’

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green and Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George were in attendance for the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor weigh-in on Friday, and even as spectators for one of the biggest fights this century, the pair of All-Stars couldn’t avoid questions about one of the busiest NBA summers in recent memory.

George was one of the first dominoes to fall this summer. After telling Pacers’ management he would not re-sign in Indiana when his free agency pulls up in 2018, he was traded to Oklahoma City for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis. Following the weigh-in, he said that transaction was difficult because he “really loves Indiana.” “I grew up there, I became a man there, a lot of obstacles I’ve overcame there, and they had my back,” George said. “We’ll see,” he continued, addressing the idea of joining the Lakers next season. “I’m a Thunder, and my job is to give them the best I have this year and see what happens after that.”

Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star Jimmy Butler left Friday night’s 120-102 lossto the Houston Rockets with a right knee injury.

Butler drove into the paint with about three minutes remaining in the third quarter, missed a short jumper, but then clawed the rebound. He dished to a teammate, then crumpled to the floor in pain, holding his knee.

Teammates, coaches and athletic trainers tended to Butler, who had to be helped off the court. He was unable to put any weight on the leg as he was helped to the locker room, where he was evaluated.

Butler was seen hopping on one foot in the Toyota Center hallway as he headed to get an X-ray. He is scheduled to have an MRI on Saturday when the team gets back to Minnesota.

According to league sources, several playoff-bound teams are closely monitoring [Joakim] Noah’s situation in New York and would push to sign him if Noah becomes a free agent.

The Warriors, Timberwolves and Thunder are three such teams that believe Noah, who turns 33 on Sunday, could bolster their respective rosters for the postseason.

Minnesota is an obvious one since it would reunite Noah with his former coach with the Chicago Bulls, Tom Thibodeau. Golden State and Oklahoma City also feel that Noah’s experience and defensive prowess would solidify their respective benches.

Noah remains in limbo following an altercation with Knicks head coach Jeff Hornacek last month in Denver.
