In order to acquire George, the Clippers will send guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and forward Danilo Gallinari to Oklahoma City.
The move sent shockwaves through the National Basketball Association, but it appears Oklahoma City isn't done just yet.
Throughout the week, Leonard wanted to end up on the Clippers with George.
Had Presti been able to strike a deal for George with Toronto - and Leonard was willing to stay - George was believed to be willing to join the Raptors, sources said.
Kawhi Leonard is headed to Los Angeles. Group B would consider trading for Westbrook another bad decision by management that has led the Hornets into this tough situation to begin with.
It is impossible to fault the Thunder for this move, who now have an incredible foundation to build on going forward.More news: If England reach final

Jakob Poeltl is also under contract for one more year, and he became a very important piece for San Antonio down the stretch last season.
There's also this report from Alex Kennedy.
The remaining four years and $170 million on Westbrook's contract is no longer sensible for a noncontender.
In fact, most of the people asked about the Kawhi trade were leaning towards disappointment rather than devastation.
Per ESPN, the difference between the Lakers adding Leonard before or after the Saturday deadline is important, pending the other teams' being agreeable.
The NBA is back in a big way, and the era of the super team is now officially over. The Thunder have added the shooter that they needed. Operating well over the salary cap with a projected salary tax payment of $43 million with the existing roster, the Thunder were in cost-cutting mode before George's trade and will only accelerate on that front now. But ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski believes there will be suitors for Westbrook, pinpointing the Miami Heat as a team to watch.
On this occasion, George appeared to attempt to play down any suggestion that a rift with Westbrook had played a role in his departure, sharing a quote that said "I am not accepting any Westbrook slander!". With the Davis trade set to be finalized some time on Saturday, the Lakers committed almost half of their remaining cap space to their No. 1 target outside of Leonard - former Raptor Danny Green. So the OKC Thunder put Steven Adams, Andre Roberson and Dennis Schroder on the trading block.
