Podcast: Paul George trade, free agency day one reaction

Rumors are the Boston Celtics were stunned to hear of the trade as they were preparing to set up a trade with IN for George.

Boston reportedly wanted to land Gordon Hayward in free agency and then trade for Paul George.

According to Mike Wise of The Undefeated, a three-way trade between the Nuggets, Cavaliers and Pacers, in which Love to Denver, George to Cleveland and Gary Harris to in, was in talks, but ultimately reneged by Pacers general manager Kevin Pritchard. Wait, no, they actually got Victor Oladipo and Damantas Sabonis, but the return is small considering the type of player George is.

George was dealt to the Oklahoma City Thunder Thunder Friday night right before the National Basketball Association offseason begins.

Curry, who received a congratulatory tweet from Cleveland star LeBron James, had taken less money this season to help finance the talent around him, including NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant, who helped lead the Warriors over Cleveland to win his first title.

George 27, played his first 7 seasons in IN leading them to the eastern conference finals in 2012.

Last season he averaged a career-high 23.7 points per game with the Pacers, but they ended up getting swept in the first round of the playoffs by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Livingston reportedly agreed to a three-year deal with the Warriors while Iguodala is set to meet with San Antonio and ESPN reported Golden State would look at free agent Rudy Gay if Iguodala goes elsewhere. He averaged 18 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists during his time there.

Sure, this is likely a one-year rental for Oklahoma City with Paul George, especially since his desires to play for the Lakers are well known. Second, they are about to be hit with a big offer for restricted free agent forward Joe Ingles. Which three first-round picks did Boston offer on draft night - and with what protections? Minnesota had already added swingman Jimmy Butler in a trade with Chicago.
