Paul George Heading To OKC [VIDEO]
The Boston Celtics chances of landing Paul George via a trade disappeared after the former all-star was dealt to the Thunder late on Friday night.
The Indiana Pacers traded George to Oklahoma City for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis with no other assets being involved. Jeff Goodman of ESPN said that the Celtics originally offered four first round picks to the Pacers for George before the draft, but were rebuffed. He also said that Boston reached out again to talk about a deal centered around Jae Crowder, Marcus Smart and draft picks that was also denied.
George will now team up with Russell Westbrook in the West for OKC, with both players eligible to become free agents in the next two seasons.
The Celtics will now move their attention to its scheduled meeting with free agent Gordon Hayward this weekend as they try to entice the former Butler product to the city.
