Paul George, Gordon Hayward Miss Out on $207M Deals After All-NBA Snubs
After they were left out of the All-NBA Teams, Paul George and Gordon Hayward will not be able to sign super-max contracts with the Indiana Pacers and Utah Jazz, respectively.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, both George and Hayward missed out a chance of signing a 5-year, $207-million deals with their current teams after they were not selected in the All-NBA teams.
Instead of $207 million, George and Hayward can resign with the Pacers and the Jazz, respectively, for up to $177.5 million over five years, Luke Adams of HoopsRumors.com reported.
George is under contract with the Pacers next season and has a $20.7 million player option for the 2018-19 season. Hayward can become a free agent and test the market if he opts out of his player option worth $16.7 million this summer.
George is reportedly being eyed by the Los Angeles Lakers via trade this summer. If not, the Lakers will wait for George to opt out of his player's option next season to be able to sign him. The Boston Celtics are reportedly pursuing Hayward this summer if he opts out of his deal.
On Thursday, the NBA announced the names of 15 players who made it to the All-NBA Teams, per Bleacher Report.
LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers, James Harden of the Houston Rockets, Oklahoma City Thunder's Russell Westbrook, San Antonio Spurs' Kawhi Leonard and New Orleans Pelicans' Anthony Davis made it to the first team.
Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant of the Golden State Warriors, Milwaukee Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo, Utah Jazz's Rudy Gobert and Boston Celtics' Isaiah Thomas comprised the second team
Included in the third All-NBA team were Chicago Bulls' Jimmy Butler, Golden State Warriors' Draymond Green, Toronto Raptors' DeMar DeRozan, Washington Wizards' John Wall and DeAndre Jordan of the Los Angeles Clippers.
