(OKLAHOMA CITY) - After being officially introduced Wednesday in front of a crowd at an event titled the “Paul George Welcome Party”, the Thunder's new star said he was stunned when he found out he was headed to Oklahoma City just hours before the start of free agency on July 1. The Indiana Pacers traded George to the Thunder hours before free agency opened in exchange for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis. George had informed the Pacers, through his agent, that he intended to sign elsewhere when he reached unrestricted free agency next summer, with his hometown Los Angeles Lakers being the presumptive favorite. Despite the celebratory tone of the event, most of the questions lobbed at George centered around his unknown future, and the speculation attached to it. The Thunder elected to make the deal for George regardless, confident in their belief they could sell him on a first-class organization and pairing together with the reigning MVP in Westbrook.
