So confused.. wasnt he an UFA?.. why did LAC have to give up all that for Kahwi? And to who?

They gave up all that to get Paul George(who is also a FA in 2 years). Kawhi supposedly made LAC trade for PG or else he wasn't gonna sign there (and reports saying he told Raptors same thing).


So OKC while they lost PG and now seems like Westbrook will go to whatever team wants his contract, could end up being a lottery pick on their own AND if LAC lose Kawhi and/or PG, the Clippers picks end up as lottery as well. 


To put in comparison, if Leafs lost Marner to an offer sheet, they get 4 first rounders. Something people here seem to be fine with. OKC got 5 first rounders (3 belong to LAC, 2 from Miami) AND can swap 1sts rounders in 2 other years should LAC finish worse than OKC.


O ya, and they also gave up a guy taken in the lottery last year who was one of the top rookies in the league. So really, its like 8 first rounds will be impacted here. All for 2 years of a guy who while he is a great player, has been on teams that lost in first round 4 straight years.
