Pacers, Thunder finalizing Paul George, Victor Oladipo swap

New, 8 comments

After weeks and weeks of discussing, the Indiana Pacers have traded Paul George to the OKC Thunder in a trade involving former Hoosier Victor Oladipo

Wow.

The Indiana Pacers waited and waited and waited for the best deal they could get for Paul George before finally pulling the trigger hours before free agency, sending George to the Thunder for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis.

This marks the third team in as many years for Oladipo, but it also marks his first bit of stability in a long time. Oladipo returns to the state he had so much success in and can take the reigns in Indianapolis in the wake of the George Era.

You can criticize the trade later. For now, we get more of this back in Indiana.
