Cavs, Pacers Were Very Close To Completing Paul George Trade

The Pacers accepted the best offer for George which was with the Thunder for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski said on "The Jump" Tuesday the Cavs, under interim general manager Koby Altman, were actually very close to getting a trade done for former Pacers All-Star Paul George. The Pacers dealt George to OKC on the eve of National Basketball Association free agency, bringing Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis back in a trade that stunned most. Here's what he had to say (transcript is via the Sporting News).

"Koby Altman was very close to a deal on June 30 for Paul George", Wojnarowski said.

Wojnarowski, however, said IN "backed out of it and did the Oklahoma City deal", trading George to the Thunder IN one of the blockbuster moves of this offseason.

Paul George is now in Oklahoma City, where the Thunder will hope that he and Russell Westbrook will form a bond and compete well enough to convince both to return long-term. We don't know what the package for George would have included, although the ocean of rumors leading up to free agency would have us believe that Kevin Love was involved in some capacity.
