NBA Raptors president Ujiri thanks Kawhi, Green

Paul George Russell Westbrook

After trading George, the Thunder face a rebuilding period and now reportedly are talking to Westbrook and his agent about what's the best next steps for the star point guard, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Saturday.

He was, by all accounts, also able to convince the Clippers to sign fellow Southern California native George to the team, instantly making the Clippers, who have long played second fiddle to the glamorous Lakers, early title favorites.

The Raptors, however, didn't have the ability to counter the Clippers' offer for George.

"I think this was the all-time get out of jail free card".

Kawhi Leonard poured in 41 points, including a dramatic game-winner as the Toronto Raptors beat the Philadelphia 76ers 92-90 to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals.

The Los Angeles Lakers have acquired forward Anthony Davis from the New Orleans Pelicans in exchange for Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart, Brandon Ingram, the draft rights to De'Andre Hunter, two first round picks, a first-round pick swap right and cash.

-The Orlando Magic officially re-signed both center Nikola Vucevic (a reported four-year, $100 million max deal) and shooting guard Terrence Ross (reported four years, $54 million). Not only that, Danny Green is headed there as well - although he'll be joining the Lakers.

"I had a great time in the city of Toronto, loved the organization, thank you guys, thank you to my teammates, thank you to the fans".

Wojnarowski went on to report that the Clippers are also acquiring Paul George from the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The Athletic reported defense-first forward Stanley Johnson agreed to a two-year, $7.5M deal with Toronto, the latter year a player option.

"We are very thankful for the year that Kawhi and Danny played with us here in Toronto, and I know the city and the entire country of Canada are grateful for everything they did to help us to win our first NBA Championship", he said.

The two teams share the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles and their meetings next season will be among the most hotly anticipated games on the National Basketball Association calendar, Magic Johnson said on Saturday.

The Raptors would have had to take on Westbrook, who will enter the second season of his five-year, $206-million contract in 2019-20.
