Less than a week after Russell Westbrook won the MVP, the Thunder have acquired another star to pair with their point guard.
The Pacers reportedly traded four-time All-Star small forward Paul George to the Thunder, according to multiple national reports.
In return, the Pacers received guard Victor Oladipo and forward Domantas Sabonis from the Thunder.
George averaged a career-high 23.7 points, 6.6 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game in the 2016-17 season.
Ramona Shelbourne of ESPN was first to report the news.

Paul George coming to Oklahoma City via trade, I can confirm. Oladipo and Sabonis headed to Indy. @ramonashelburne first reported.— Sam Amick (@sam_amick) July 1, 2017
Can confirm the Thunder-Pacers trade. This is a huge swing by Sam Presti. Could be seen as an all-or-nothing gamble, but one hell of a move.— Tim Bontemps (@TimBontemps) July 1, 2017
