However, George told fans while on stage with fellow all-star Russell Westbrook at a party thrown in his honour in Oklahoma City that isn't the case.
TheHoopCentral tweeted a video of George, standing next to Westbrook, announcing, "If y'all didn't quite get it, let me say it again: I'm here to stay". When trading for George the assumption was that he would walk away after a year and go sign in Los Angeles with the Lakers.
George forced his way out of IN previous year by telling the Pacers he planned to become a free agent this summer and sign with the Lakers.
Without even taking a meeting with the Los Angeles Lakers, the Palmdale native committed to stay with the Oklahoma City Thunder, according to a source not authorized to speak publicly. But considering the Thunder would be well north of $25 million over the luxury tax line in that scenario, that would take Oklahoma City's combined payroll and luxury taxes up to roughly $255 million.
Beyond that, the Thunder would likely have to trade rotation players to save money next season. The deal reportedly carries a player option on the final season.
The success of the Thunder's starting five last season has been a point in favor of Anthony's value to the team.
George averaged 18.1 points, 6.3 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.7 steals during his seven seasons in Indiana.
