OKC will never win a championship. They blew a few titles when they traded Harden away.

I still want Lamb so bad. Still mad about the Bucks trading back and missing out on Lamb.

I think its more likely Liggins or PJIII takes that role. Especially given the love Brooks has for Liggins. OKC is going to have a tough time replacing Thabo and Collison in a few years as they are making peanuts.

PJIII can't even dominate in college or the D-League. I don't see him having much of a future.

And yet between he and Lamb, its PJIII that gets the garbage time and Lamb goes to play in the NBDL.

Do you think either of those packages, the ones with guys who play sparingly or not at all, are better than a 15/10 player on a team friendly deal? They aren't even close.

Dalembert has avg close to that as a starter when Sanders was out and gets paid the same. Anyway the Suns turned down the deal, so maybe OKC is still looking to dump Perkins salary.

No. But the suns apparently turned down the offer. If we give them expirings for Perkins with a big man included who knows, that might be enough to get them to say yes. Don't underestimate how much of a burden Perkins contract is to the Thunder...

I'd give up quite a bit to get Bledsoe. A young core of Bledsoe/Harris/Henson/Sanders would be pretty damn exciting.

Hell, as long as I'm dreaming...

I don't see where there's a strong argument that Gortat is significantly better than Perkins or Dalembert.

I'd give up quite a bit to get Lamb. Like Dally, Luc and a first for Lamb/Perkins. I'd throw in Udoh or MDJ for Maynor if they wanted too.

No wonder everyone thinks Hammond and all our coaches are bums. All our scrubs making arsurd amounts of money are equivalent to borderline all-stars on team friendly deals. I mean lets just trade Toby and Mbah for Durant and Monta and Pryz for LeBron. We would have one helluva team.

Ilyasova and Dunleavy for Martin, PJIII and Toronto first round pick.

Why are u being a d*ck? And u never responded to my post. U do at least understand that a Perkins/Lamb trade is much more about unloading Perkins to clear his contract than to get back a huge upgrade at center right?

Lol at Gortat being any kind of all-star. He had a career box score year playing with Steve Nash. Hooray. He's borderline Jamaal Magloire.

I love how all these teams who are far worse than us are somehow full of players who are far better than ours.

Expiring contract guys for Perkins and J Lamb would be on the top of my list of moves to make. Perkins becomes our backup center, Lamb is our first guard off the bench, and then our start next year when Ellis inevitable moves on to wherever the money is for him.

Jennings, J Lamb, Tobias, Ersan, Sanders is respectable, and Perkins gives you muscle and attitude off the bench. I understand we could have just drafted Lamb without taking on Perkins' salary, I get that. But Perkins is an albatross contract on the Thunder (what? even Presti makes mistakes?) but not a horrible player.

I would feel better about this move than any other we have talked about.

I completely agree that for the Thunder it is about dumping Perk and his salary. It gets them out of a punitive tax situation and all of a sudden they get an asset for someone that a lot of folks expect to get amnestied.

The Suns, correctly, likely turned down the deal. But if you look back at the first few pages people here thought that the Suns package was a poor one to get Perk, Lamb, and their #1 (likely ~29th) and that Hammond could easily put together a much better package around... Dally? So yes, if you think I was being a dick to anyone that felt that Dally was >>>> Gortat I guess I kind of was.

I don't get why people are begging for Monta to opt out at the end of the year but think that some other team is going to pay through the nose to get him. It just doesn't work that way. I think the board at large overestimates ALL our assets; and not by a small amount.

Exactly nobody said Dally >>> Gortat. But unlike Gortat, Dally expires this year, which should be important to them if the plan on adding anybody, or keeping Martin, while staying under the luxury tax they traded James Harden to avoid.

As far as the Monta thing, it's not really that far fetched to think that we could have a different opinion about a player than an NBA decision maker does, is it?
