Paul George    G/F  Thunder

 

 

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.

Enes Kanter    F/C  Thunder

 

 

Enes Kanter may not be able to play in the Thunder's game vs. the Nets in Mexico City on Dec. 7. In case you missed it, Turkey canceled Kanter's passport over three months ago for his "political views" and speaking out against the government. He's currently only allowed to travel to Canada, but that will change after he receives a re-entry permit from the U.S. government -- he's already applied for one and is waiting to hear back. He has over three months to sort this out, so we're still expecting him to be available for the game in Mexico City.

Paul George    G/F  Thunder

 

 

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.

Patrick Patterson    F/C  Thunder

 

 

Patrick Patterson underwent a successful scope on his left knee on Thursday. He will be re-evaluated in 4-6 weeks, so we'll consider him questionable for training camp. He did struggle with his knee last season, so hopefully those concerns will be in the rearview mirror. Recently signed to a three-year, $16.4 million deal, Patterson actually has a decent path to minutes in OKC, as his competition for minutes at the four consists of Jerami Grant and Nick Collison. He averaged 6.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.4 triples in just under 25 minutes per game last season, so his upside isn't the greatest.

Enes Kanter    F/C  Thunder

 

 

Enes Kanter said he's been working on his 3-point shot, face-up game and defense this offseason. Kanter's defense has always been an issue, so improving that side of his game will hopefully be his main focus. His name has been floating around the rumor mill for quite some time, but he said the trade talk doesn't bother him too much. "I can’t say enough how much I love the fans, how much I love the organization, all the people there. I see them like family," Kanter said. "But if it happens, it happens. I can’t do nothing about it, because it’s not in my hands." The Thunder added Patrick Patterson this summer, but Kanter should be able to match the 21.3 minutes per game he saw last season. Kanter is allergic to defensive stats, but he's worth a look late in drafts if you're targeting points, rebounds and FG percentage.

Daniel Hamilton    G  Thunder

 

 

Thunder sign G Daniel Hamilton. It's a two-way deal for the 56th pick of the 2017 NBA Draft, but he's almost certainly going to see most of his playing time with the Oklahoma City Blue.
