The 2016-2017 All-NBA First, Second and Third Team Players

As the NBA season is drawing closer to an end, the regular season awards are going to start to trickle out. The big awards will be unveiled after the NBA Finals with Drake hosting, but for now, the league has released their infamous All-NBA first, second and third teams.

This list is specifically interesting for two players: Paul George and Gordon Hayward.

The fact that they didn’t make it is going to cost them where it hurts the most, their pockets. Since neither of them made any of the teams, that means they will not qualify for the Super Max deals their teams can offer with a 5-year extension. Basically, George just lost about $75 million dollars, with the Indiana Pacers scrambling to see what they can do to keep him in town.

Without the Super Max option, the organization can only offer him about $2.5 million dollars more than anyone else, which means they have hardly any advantage in signing him for the long term.

Same goes for Hayward.

Whether they decide to trade him or either of them choose to leave town, will be an interesting plot line to keep an eye out this offseason, with all eyes on George and Los Angeles.
