Raymond Felton, Andre Roberson, Paul George, Carmelo Anthony and Steven Adams will be in the starting lineup for Tuesday's preseason matchup with the Rockets. Russell Westbrook (knee) is still recovering from his PRP injection, so Felton will be manning the point guard position in his absence. Billy Donovan indicated that new additions PG-13 and Melo will play their usual minutes during the first half, but they might not take the floor at all after halftime.

Paul George said the Thunder have "already proven everything on my check list." "That's what makes me feel like, 'Hey, this can be a landing spot for me, and somewhere I can call home for years.'" George added that winning was above the Lakers on his list of priorities, so it certainly sounds like he's more than open to staying with the Thunder past 2018. "Winning takes precedence over all of it. That's the ultimate happiness," he said. "It's not location. It's not stardom. It's not 'where can I make the most money.' It's winning, and winning championships."

Paul George said he's "going for" the MVP award in 2017-18. Context is important here and he was asked about the award, and this wouldn't be the first time a player has said he wants to win MVP -- it won't be the last either. Quote aside, it's going to be a tall order for PG-13 to contend for MVP as he joins Russell Westbrook, who just set the record for usage rate in his MVP campaign. George is a fantasy target at the end of the second round or early in the third.

Pacers owner Herb Simon said the Pacers are not considering any legal action toward the NBA or the Lakers regarding the recent decision and penalty concerning tampering charges. "We agree with the NBA’s findings and we want to put this issue behind us," Simon said in a statement. "Even though the Pacers were put in a tough position, we feel extremely fortunate to end up with two exceptional players in Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis." The Lakers will be after Paul George in a big way next summer, but don't expect many public statements in the next 10 months.

Paul George was non-committal when asked if he still wanted to join the Lakers in 2018. "We’ll see," George said. "I’m a Thunder, and my job is to give them the best I have this year and see what happens after that." He previously said that he would have a hard time leaving OKC if the team advances deep into the playoffs, so Thunder fans can start sweating if they don't make it past the second round. George has still been going in the second round in most early fantasy drafts, but his upside isn't as high as previous years since he's playing next to a usage rate monster in Russell Westbrook.

The Pacers have filed tampering charges against the Lakers over Paul George, and the league has launched an independent investigation into the allegations. The probe is reportedly centered on possible "impermissible contact" between Magic Johnson and George, although at this point, no findings have been made. If the Lakers are deemed guilty upon the conclusion of the investigation, they could lose multiple draft picks, front office execs could be suspended, hefty fines would need to be paid, and the Lakers could also be forbidden from signing PG-13 when he becomes an unrestricted free agent in 2018.

The Pacers plan to file tampering charges against the Lakers over Paul George, according to NBA writer Peter Vescey. He adds that Magic Johnson, Rob Pelinka and Jeanie Buss were asked to turn over any correspondence pertaining to George. Johnson did appeal on Jimmy Kimmel and joked about meeting George, so that may be part of the tampering charge. This story is still developing.

Russell Westbrook and Paul George have been working out together this week in Los Angeles. They have been joined by several other Thunder players, including Jerami Grant, Kyle Singler, Semaj Christon and Doug McDermott, at a gym on the UCLA campus. Both Westbrook and George will have to adjust their games and sacrifice a bit offensively next season. Westbrook's record-breaking usage rate will have to come back down to earth a bit. George will also attempt fewer shots playing alongside the league's reigning MVP and leading scorer.

Cavs owner Dan Gilbert said the Pacers could've got more in the Paul George trade with the Thunder. Wow. The Cavs were reportedly trying to get a deal together with Kevin Love and possibly other pieces for PG-13, but instead the Pacers went with Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis. A report from ESPN said "Indiana backed out" of the possible deal, as well. The PG-13 deal also went down before the Kyrie Irving trade demand, so maybe Gilbert's comments have something to do with that. Whatever the case, this is a very interesting quote from an NBA owner.
