Oladipo, Sabonis, and?? Something I'd assume

Pure rental. Makes no sense to me for OKC. This team wins nothing that matters

Figure they could have got more out of Boston who would have had a shot at keeping him. OKC just paying rental fee knowing less then 10% chance he stays there.

It's a salary dump, of Oladipo, for OKC

No chance George stays there

Good heck. And the east just please keep some of their good players? Over 20 of the NBAs best now play in the west. The imbalance is staggering!

Can't help but feel like this is a little bit of the middle finger to the Celtics and the Lakers.

The Lakers? The Lakers love this...

George traded to Cavs, Rockets, or Celtics and there is a chance he signs. Maybe the Lakers trade for him now

This guarantees he's a free agent without LA giving anything up

Paul George is going to LA. Teams probably weren't ofering anything of value.

Some team might offer late first round pick at deadline if they feel he can get them over top. If your going to be picking late 20's. to get him for 3 months might be worth it.

Hopefully Sabonis can get some playing time in Indiana.

Yeah, this kinda feels like Pacers were like you know what, shove it Boston and LA lol

Dipo did play for Indiana in college so they get someone people are familiar with while they go through a rebuild. I don't think Dipo is anything special but he still has potential and letting him be the main guy might help him grow and Sabonis is a decent fit long term at the 4 with Turner at the 5, if they both keep developing their 3 ball that's nice spacing from your 4 & 5.

Not sure what Boston's next move is, Blake and PG are no longer options and without one of those 2 coming Hayward might just rather take the 5 year deal from the Jazz.

heck, blazers need him--but ainge all smug. he is always trying to fleece people to get that second "score" and has already rubbed some the wrong way. He probably will not get Hayward, who should stay in Utah, especially with dimer Rubio.

Chris Paul, Paul George and Jimmy Butler were traded and the best player anyone received in exchange was... Victor Oladipo
