The Indiana Pacers reportedly had set a monster price tag on Paul George, but the Oklahoma City Thunder proved that to be just a myth.
The Pacers agreed to trade the star forward to OKC in a shocking deal Friday night. The Thunder didn’t exactly break the bank to acquire the four-time All-Star, as Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis served as the exchange.
OKC effectively “stole” George from Indiana, which garnered a flood of reaction tweets, including from the Oklahoma City Police Department.
It appears Thunder general manager Sam Presti won’t have to worry about a police investigation.
