The news everybody in basketball was waiting for this week happened early Saturday morning: NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard has decided to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers.
And he's bringing Paul George with him.
In trade news broken first by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski just before 1 a.m. Saturday, the Oklahoma City Thunder have traded George to the Clippers in exchange for Danilo Gallinari and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and several future first-round picks.
The Thunder would also be getting four unprotected first-round draft picks from the Clippers and more. OKC Mayor David Holt commented on the trade deal Saturday morning saying he wishes George well and that he is choosing to look forward to the future.
The changes don't stop there. Reports indicate that Russell Westbrook has also inquired about a possible trade. Westbrook has been with the Thunder since 2008. It is not clear where Westbrook is headed if he were to be traded.
