How Does Paul George Trade Impact Russell Westbrook's Thunder Future?

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

And for the Pacers, they received shooting guard Victor Oladipo and forward Domantas Sabonis, who was the 11th overall pick of the 2016 NBA Draft, for their efforts in sending away a rental in George.

Those reported deals set the tone as National Basketball Association free agency dealmaking began Saturday, when the league announced each team's salary cap was $99.093 million (86.7 million euros) for the 2017-18 season.

PAUL George is teaming up with newly minted MVP Russell Westbrook after the Indiana Pacers have agreed to a trade with the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday (Saturday, Manila time).

"Tillerson has said he hopes the list of demands would be " reasonable and actionable ". The Foreign Minister met US Secretary of State Rex Tillersoni in Washington, yesterday.

Oladipo is the third part of this deal worth mentioning, because he's a young scorer and secondary rebounder and distributor who also makes 3s (1.9 per game last season) and racks up steals (1.5 SPG in his career).

Durant left Oklahoma City a year ago for the Warriors and Westbrook last season became only the second player in National Basketball Association history to average a triple double of points, rebounds and assists for a full season. Average per game in the main basketball League in the world George gaining 18.1 points and 6.3 rebounds and 3.2 assists. It is surprising how little they got back for the all-star, considering how much they have been offered for him by the Boston Celtics.

The trade puts a temporary halt on the Lakers' pursuit of Paul George and will now bring up the questions as to whether George wants to stay with a playoff team in Oklahoma City to come play for a non-contender in Los Angeles.

The two shuttlers battled neck and neck till 7-7 before a three-point burst saw the Indian take the lead at 10-7. However, aided by his deceptive shots and searing smashes, the Indian shuttler took 11-9 lead at the break.

Meanwhile, big man Blake Griffin is also reportedly confirmed to sign a 5-year deal with his team Los Angeles Clippers.

Oladipo was the No. 2 pick in the 2013 National Basketball Association draft and spent his first three professional seasons in Orlando.

And if they do lose him to free agency and likely to the Lakers next summer, then all it cost them was two players and some salary. Paul George will make $19 million this season before he hits free agency next year.
