Presti’s Big Get: Can Paul George be the perfect fit next to OKC’s Rated-R Superstar Russell Westbrook?

Presti’s Big Get: Can Paul George be the perfect fit next to OKC’s Rated-R Superstar Russell Westbrook?

In the NBA, it isn’t just about obtaining talent, it’s about obtaining the right talent. On June 30th at 10 PM EDT, Paul George’s abrupt trade interrupted ESPN’s free-agency preview coverage.

Oklahoma City Thunder news: Paul George states ‘Dec 13 will be a special night’

The former Pacer cornerstone looks to an eventful return date vs. his former franchise On June 30, following weeks of rhetoric, the Indiana Pacers met Paul George’s trade demands by moving him to the Oklahoma City Thunder for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis. After repeated first-round playoff exits, George, 27, faced a contract year with idle 42-40 Indiana, and clarified his desire to chase victories elsewhere. And though much hearsay exists concerning where the four-time All Star may land next season, for now, George and reigning-MVP teammate Russell Westbrook look to ascend the...
