Devean Jamar George (born August 29, 1977 in Minneapolis, Minnesota) is an American professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors of the NBA. He typically plays small forward but because of his athleticism and defensive activity, can defend many shooting guards as well.

He attended high school at Benilde-St. Margaret's School in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, where he played basketball. During his college career at Augsburg College, George was named Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Most Valuable Player two consecutive years (1997-98 and 1998-99), and set school records as a senior by scoring 770 points and averaging 27.5 ppg in leading Augsburg to 24–4 record and the NCAA Division III tournament for the second year in a row.

He was taken by the Lakers with the 23rd overall pick of the 1999 NBA Draft, and showed considerable promise, especially by his third season where his hustle, outside shooting, and defense made him a key substitute and he appeared in every single game. The Lakers gave him a contract extension in 2002 as a result and over the years, his effort, defensive activity, three-point shooting, and willingness to do what the Lakers required of him endeared him to many Laker fans.

George signed a two-year $4.2 million contract with the Mavericks as a free agent in August 2006[1] and as the season continued he gained coach Avery Johnson's trust and became more integral to the Mavericks' gameplan.

Off-season 2007

After the end of the 2006–07 NBA season, George became an unrestricted free agent. The Mavericks gave him and his agent a chance to opt in or opt out of a possible second season with the Mavericks at $2.16 m. As of June 30, George decided to opt out of a second season with the Mavericks but eventually, with no other choices, re-signed on July 9 to a $2.5 million deal.[2]

2008–09

On March 11, 2009, George injured his right knee in a game against the Portland Trail Blazers.[3] On March 27, George had arthroscopic surgery to remove loose fragments of cartilage from the injured knee.[4] George had the option to become a free agent at the end of the season[5], but chose to exercise his player option to remain with the team.[6]

On July 8, 2009. George was a part of a three team trade that sent him and Antoine Wright to the Toronto Raptors, Shawn Marion and Kris Humphries to the Mavericks and Jerry Stackhouse to the Memphis Grizzlies. He was later traded to the Golden State Warriors along with cash considerations on July 30, 2009 for Marco Belinelli.[7]
