Though George has expressed interest to play for his hometown Lakers on several occasions, The New York Times reports George would strongly consider a two-year deal with the Thunder that includes a player option after the first year.

Young is an excellent prospect in his own right, but there’s significantly more risk associated with him due to his poor defense than there is with Doncic.

Dallas will now go about building Doncic into its rotation. His fit next to Dennis Smith Jr. shouldn’t be a concern. The 19-year-old has excelled playing next to another ball handler in the past with the Slovenian national team and Real Madrid.
The Mavericks found some nice value in the second round with Jalen Brunson and Ray Spalding, in particular, but their 2018 draft night will be defined by the decision to move up and snag the best player on the board.

There is a constant line of communication between me and Torey (manager Lovullo). He was open with me. He wanted me to make another rehab start. I made it clear that I felt like I was ready. It felt good to be back on the mound and to be good to put up some zeroes for this team and help us win.
