It's not a huge surprise that Kawhi Leonard is going to the Clippers, as they were one of the three teams competing for his services.

What is a huge surprise is Paul George is going with him.

Last night, Leonard signed a four year-$142 million deal with the Clips. Then the Clippers traded Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Danilo Gallinari, a total of five 1st round picks, only one of which is unprotected, and four pick swaps for George.

 

Knowing Leonard wanted to play with George, OKC GM Sam Presti created a bidding war between Toronto and the Clippers. Word is he offered George and Russell Westbrook to the Raptors for a package centered around Pascal Siakam.

What do you think about what just went down?
