Lowry, Jrue Holiday, Teague, Derrick Rose, George Hill, Darren Collison and Rondo are just some of the point guards available, and there aren't many teams that are in need of their services.
George shortly before the start of the free agent market notified "Indiana" that in the summer of 2018 will not sign with a "Pacers" a new contract.

Oladipo, 25, averaged 15.9 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.6 assists last season for Oklahoma City. Interest to George were credited with "Cleveland" "Houston" "Washington" and "Boston", but in the end the ball was the General Manager of the Oklahoma Sam Presti, who were able to trade George for a less valuable set of assets than the competition.
With Westbrook eligible for a five-year, supermax contract next summer, the Thunder wanted to make efforts to improve the team around him. Paul George finally gets to play with a superstar in Russell Westbrook but can the two co-exist?

Also, this gives OKC one more great defender as he is considered to be one of the best perimeter defenders in the National Basketball Association that can guard the best players in the league.

George's future at IN has been uncertain for some time. The trade for Paul George definitely shows that.
