George was at LAX when we asked about the housing development he was working on for low-income families in north Minnesota. Devean first told us he was planning the project when we shot him back in 2013 … and now he tells us it’s all finished. But that’s not all he tells us … ’cause now that everything’s up and running George says he thinks he can take things to the next level by adding a little Magic (Johnson) to his project. Check out the clip — George makes an offer to Magic … and it looks pretty sincere to us.

Former LA Laker and Augsburg College standout Devean George is the driving force behind a new development in North Minneapolis. He and a former classmate hope their affordable housing unit near Penn Avenue and Golden Valley Road will be a catalyst for positive change. A high-traffic area known for violence and crime is being converted into a place where people can live, shop and thrive in the heart of North Minneapolis.

“It’s the ‘Devean George effect,’ ” said Jeff Washburne, the longtime executive director of the City of Lakes Community Land Trust, a North Side nonprofit that’s helped 200 working-class families buy refurbished city homes. “He’s a star and he’s a team player. He’s focused on this neighborhood with time and investment. He’s told us that every resident of his Commons at Penn development who is able to buy a house from us means success, and an available apartment for the next family that needs one.”
