Paul George has been traded to OKC, per sources— Ramona Shelburne (@ramonashelburne) July 1, 2017
Sources: Indiana has completed trade of Paul George to Oklahoma City for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) July 1, 2017
The Pacers won't even get any picks back in the trade. Oladipo and Sabonis were the two pieces the Thunder landed from the Orlando Magic in exchange for Serge Ibaka. It's a limited return for the Pacers, though the pending free agency of George severely limited his value.
The Thunder were not considered one of the main favorites to trade for George. The Celtics and Lakers were the two front-runners to land George. The addition of George gives the Thunder, at least for a year, a second superstar to pair with MVP Russell Westbrook.Back to the Oklahoma City Thunder Newsfeed
