After over a year of rumors, it appears the Indiana Pacers finally have decided to part ways with Paul George.
ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne reported Friday night that the Pacers have agreed to trade the superstar forward to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
And after a number of outlets reported the Pacers had set a ridiculously high price tag on George, it appears the Thunder didn’t give up much to acquire the four-time All-Star, per USA TODAY’s Sam Amick.
The Thunder now are poised to be a very interesting team next season, as George will be paired with one of the NBA’s most gifted players in Russell Westbrook. Even if this is only a one-year rental for OKC, one would have to imagine the team will be a real threat in the Western Conference next season.
