The wait is over, just two hours from the start of NBA Free Agency.
Paul George has officially been traded to OKC for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis.
While we all believed a trade was in the works no reports were about the Thunder being competitive. Via Jeff Goodman, as soon as early last week the Celtics offered three first round picks for the services of PG13.
This is the first of many moves as Mike Ortiz is already reporting the chase of Grizzlies power forward Zach Randolph.
Sources: Thunder are now shifting their focus to Zach Randolph. Meeting scheduled. Memphis, Kings, Clippers and Warriors in mix.

One thing is certain, OKC GM Sam Presti is going all in, in hopes of having Russell Westbrook signing the max extension once free agency opens.
With people I have spoken with nothing is imminent on that front, but one thing is for sure, OKC just became a bigger threat out West.
