Thunder/Celtics/Grizzlies - Thunder become instant favourite 

Post#1 » by oaklandwarriors » Wed Jan 23, 2013 7:41 am

Thunder Trade:
Russell Westbrook
Kendrick Perkins
Eric Maynor
Perry Jones III

Thunder Receive:
Rajon Rondo
Kevin Garnett
Jerryd Bayless

Why for Thunder?
Get Garnett/Rondo who complement Durant extremely well. Westbrook is a loss but Rondo isn't a slouch at PG. They trade Maynor for Bayless to get a more athletic and aggressive backup to complement Rondo.

Rondo
Sefolosha
Durant
Garnett
Ibaka

Celtics Trade:
Rajon Rondo
Kevin Garnett

Celtics Receive:
Russell Westbrook
Kendrick Perkins
Perry Jones III

Westbrook
Bradley
Pierce
Bass
Perkins

Why for Celtics?
Westbrook is the star Celtics want. With his own team, I believe Westbrook will shine. He's younger than Rondo and better as well. They get a young prospect in PJ3 as well. Moving Pierce can commit them to a rebuild.

Grizzlies Trade:
Jerryd Bayless

Grizzlies Receive:
Eric Maynor

Why for Grizzlies?
Save 3m next year and 700k this year while getting around the same production.
