However, Anthony's stint in Oklahoma City may not last long, and rumors are now circulating that the Thunder may consider buying out his contract or trading him to another team. His sports management agency, Klutch, said he had agreed to a four-year, $154 million contract in a tweet that broke the news.
Nothing is official as the teams and players can not formally sign contracts until Friday, July 6.
On Thursday, June 28, George told the Thunder he is not opting into his final year on his contract and would become an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career. Staying in OKC was the power move, though, both for George and Thunder general manager Sam Presti. Even in the days before that trade, George was telling friends he eventually would wind up with the Lakers. OKC had a true superstar in Russell Westbrook, but Oklahoma City is not Los Angeles. But does he have enough time to let a group of unproven players with no postseason experience develop into a title contender?
For the Thunder, two of the biggest question marks the organization faced heading into the offseason had been swiftly taken care of just minutes into the start of free agency.
George was the second-leading scorer on the team and he was the best player they had in terms of two-way play.
Known as a hustler-rebounder for his first two National Basketball Association seasons, Harrell showed an ability to score in bunches a year ago as a Clippers reserve, averaging a career-high 11.0 points per game.
In other words, it's more like James came alone ... knowing the Lakers are in prime position to get another major star in a year.

Germany Have Been Knocked Out Of The 2018 World Cup
Former Germany star Mario Basler slammed the national team's sub-par performance. "I don't think any of us expected this at all". Meanwhile, Toni Kroos gave a damning assessment of Germany's failure.
The Thunder will regret that contract by the end of it and the Lakers will look back on not getting him as a big win. According to Lawrence George of Fansided's Thunderous Intentions, the Thunder could try offering Carmelo Anthony to the Houston Rockets.
The two have traded testy moments in the playoffs when Stephenson's in teams faced James' squads in both Miami and Cleveland.
While most of today's Los Angeles Lakers rumors have involved LeBron James, another free agent the team may be targeting is DeMarcus Cousins. George also garnered all-defensive first-team honors in 2014.
"I thought he'd sign a two-year with an opt-out to give himself flexibility, but he's locked in".
More to the point, LeBron must love him and he'll take a one-year deal.
