Paul George Traded by IN to Oklahoma City

NBA trade rumors: Paul George to the Cavs, Rockets or Celtics? Stay tuned

In a deal that saw their best player leave the team after seven seasons, the Pacers received Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis.

Paul George's trade to Oklahoma City makes both the Thunder and the National Basketball Association better - and it makes for a more compelling Western Conference - but its impact isn't as positive on the fantasy side of things.

Boston reportedly wanted to land Gordon Hayward in free agency and then trade for Paul George.

Last season, George averaged a career-high 23.7 points on 46 percent shooting.

The Scottish National Party's leader at Westminster, Ian Blackford, said Scotland should get "its fair share". The DUP deal, and its £1bn price tag, has delayed that day for a time, but it has done no more than delay it.

George gives the Thunder a dynamic second superstar to pair alongside Russell Westbrook, a necessity by today's National Basketball Association standards and something OKC glaringly missed last season when Kevin Durant left for Golden State. Sabonis averaged 5.9 points and 3.6 rebounds in his rookie season with the Oklahoma City past year.

According to ESPN, the Thunder will meet with Rudy Gay as free agency this weekend to add more options.

Meanwhile, big man Blake Griffin is also reportedly confirmed to sign a 5-year deal with his team Los Angeles Clippers. Which three first-round picks did Boston offer on draft night - and with what protections?

The news hit the Celtics as they were preparing to make their midnight free agent phone calls, and according to sources among those who have dealings with the club, the C's were stunned.

The move is another huge blow to the Eastern Conference, which already previously lost star Jimmy Butler when he was traded from the Chicago Bulls to the Minnesota Timberwolves. Another Aussie, center Andrew Bogut, is on the free agency market after suffering a broken left leg in his debut with Cleveland last season.
