According to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne, the Oklahoma City Thunder have acquired Indiana Pacers star forward Paul George for shooting guard Victor Oladipo and forward Domantas Sabonis.

 

The four-time All-Star averaged 23.7 points, 6.6 rebounds and 3.3 assists over 75 games with the Pacers in 2016-17, his seventh year with the team. The Pacers selected George with the 10th overall pick in the 2010 Draft.

George will make approximately $19.5 million next season and can opt-out of the final year of the contract to test the free-agent market.

Oladipo was traded from the Orlando Magic to the Thunder last offseason. In his first year with the Thunder, the 24-year-old averaged 15.9 points per game on a career-best field goal percentage (44.2) with 4.3 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game.

Sabonis was drafted by the Magic in 2016, 11th overall and traded to the Thunder along with Oladipo. The 21-year-old averaged 5.9 points and 3.9 rebounds per game in his rookie season with the Thunder.
