Steven Adams' OKC Thunder owns the most expensive roster in National Basketball Association history

Paul George

Felton's signing will push the Thunder's payroll and luxury tax hurtling past an historic National Basketball Association threshold: $300 million. OKC signed veteran point guard Raymond Felton on Tuesday night, surpassing the 300,000,000 line. Well, it could mean he's not going to be part of the Thunder's 2018-19 team.

The Thunder desperately need to do this, because Raymond Felton's new contract has pushed the Thunder's combined spending over $300 million.

Many commentators looked straight at former NY star Carmelo Anthony's $27.9 million annual salary as the solution to the crisis.

Lovren’s Croatia set up World Cup semi-final with England
The hosts qualified for the last eight after a dramatic penalty shoot-out victory over former world champions, Spain. Petersburg, Sochi, Kazan, Saransk, Kaliningrad, Volgograd, Rostov-on-Don, Nizhny Novgorod, Yekaterinburg and Samara.


George became an unrestricted free agent and in the weeks leading up to last Friday's deadline for him to opt out of his OKC contract, it was heavily expected that he would move to the Lakers, based just over 60 miles south of his native Palmdale, California.

The trade that George is referring to is the one that took place in the summer of 2017.

The 28-year-old forward officially signed a multi-year contract to remain with the Thunder, the team announced on Friday. And Oklahoma City did not have a backup to Russell Westbrook on the roster.

USA border patrol boat strayed into Canadian waters chasing migrants: fishermen
Border Patrol agents since last week while fishing in the disputed waters around Machias Seal Island. As a result, the area has long hosted lobster fisherman from both sides of the border.


The deal runs for four seasons and is worth $137million, according to a report from ESPN.

By using the stretch provision, the Thunder would avoid the huge luxury tax pain this season at the cost of limiting salary cap flexibility for two future years. That's...quite a lot.

George does mention the Lakers as well as he thanked their fans for showing their support in wanting him to play at the Staples Center.

Mayor of Sheffield, England, says Donald Trump "banned"
The 28-year-old said he will participate in the Stop Trump demonstration that will greet the president when he arrives in London . He spent several months living in an Ethiopian refugee camp with his mother and five siblings, according to the BBC .


Healthy enough, at least, for George to reportedly knock back the opportunity of joining superstar LeBron James at the Los Angeles Lakers.
