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.

“It was surprising. This team wasn’t one of the teams that we had in mind,” George said. “I thought I was going to four or five other teams that were pretty active in trade [talks]. When I found out it was OKC, I was quite surprised, but at the same time I was happy about the trade. I was thrilled, I was looking forward to it. All I wanted was a chance and an opportunity to play for something special and ultimately to try and win a championship, and right off the bat I think I can do that here playing alongside Russ.”
