And I guess we “sweeten the pot” by adding Iguodala?? If the opening offer isn’t going to be Bam+Herro+picks, then we might as well not even try.
And for folks talking about fit, if in the very remote chance we somehow get gifted Harden, I trust Spo to make it work. But realistically, we are better off trying run it back with some combination of Ibaka/Gallo/Noel, hoping for some growth in Bam, Herro, Nunn & Robinson...and waiting for the next offseason.
I agree and disagree.
Hou presumably would be going into a rebuild if they trade Harden. They're gonna want multiple picks (high picks) and young upside players preferably on their rookie contracts.
Shortlist of guys who are likely on that list:
Simmons (contract already extended)
The only guy on this list other than Herro who could conceivably get traded for Harden is maybe Ingram, and I doubt it. Point is, Hou doesn't have good options to acquire young talent other than Herro. If Mia were to throw in Bam they would just be bidding against themselves, IMO. I think an offer of Herro, Nunn, KZ, DJJ (sign n trade), picks, and KO would really give them something to think about. Granted, they could find offers for a better assortment of draft picks than what Mia is capable of offering. But they'd be hard-pressed to get a better package of young players.
Smart post. There is one other thing a team could offer that would get Houston’s attention ( not us!... unless it is part are of a 3 team trade) relief from Westbrook’s contract.
