When it comes to the future of Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George, the All-Star says that he doesn’t need to join a championship squad in free agency, as long as the team has solid direction.

George mentioned that he would consider staying with the Thunder, but noted that the team needs a foundation.

“I’m very conscious that we’re only together for a year so far, and we continue to go in an upward trend” George said (h/t ESPN).

“It’s best to stick with what we have and work on building. So, I wouldn’t say it’s championship or bust, or championship and I’m out. It’s all about building. If I like where we’re building or the level that we’re going at, it would be stupid to walk away from that.”
