The person requested anonymity because the deal hadn't been publicly announced.
Those reported deals set the tone as National Basketball Association free agency dealmaking began Saturday, when the league announced each team's salary cap was $99.093 million (86.7 million euros) for the 2017-18 season.
The trade puts a temporary halt on the Lakers' pursuit of Paul George and will now bring up the questions as to whether George wants to stay with a playoff team in Oklahoma City to come play for a non-contender in Los Angeles.

Budget Mess May Interrupt Lottery Sales
A lack of funding for the 2018 fiscal year will also stop the sale of Mega Millions tickets in IL effective Friday at 9:45 p.m. If and when that fiscal 2018 appropriation is passed, sales for Mega Millions will resume as well, it said.
As was reported by USA TODAY Sports recently, George will also keep an open mind about the possibility of re-signing with the Thunder following this upcoming season.
Durant has opted out of his contract with the Warriors but is expected to re-sign once Golden State works out deals for other players, notably top reserves Shaun Livingston and Andre Iguodala.
The Indiana Pacers have agreed to trade George to the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for guard Victor Oladipo and second-year forward Domantas Sabonis.
As for George, who averaged 18 FGA per game last season on his way to a career-best 23.7 PPG, the same concerns are there. He had 31.6 points, 10.7 rebounds and 10.4 assists a game. 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. They are eligible to be unrestricted free agents in the summer of 2018.
It's unknown what the market would be like for Young but he was traded to the Pacers from the Brooklyn Nets for the 20th overall pick and a future 2nd round pick during last year's NBA Draft. Paul George will make $19 million this season before he hits free agency next year.
