I want Reddick.

Frankly I don't 100% trust any of these shooters in the playoffs. Not TLC/Johnson/Shamet.

Even Harris has not been great in playoff games.

I could totally see him coming in when were cold and being huge.


Yup,,,,

and something ive always said. there are guys who can shoot 40%, 42%, 44% from three and then there are guys who can shoot that off balance around screens with a hand in the face

reddick the ladder

I dont think he would play. his defense isnt a big enough upgrade to warrant minutes over better offensive players

There are always minutes for elite shooters

I'll absolutely take JJ off buyout. He's a great vet and he still has plenty of production to offer. Curious to see whether we can get someone like Norman Powell as well as there's some noise about that. Raps are definitely trading Powell so it's a question of which contender he ends up with.

I think another name that is worth paying attention to is Kenrich Williams. He's having a breakout year with OKC and he's the type of high energy, defensive wing we could really use. His salary is small and he's signed for multiple years so that's a huge plus. He's generally not a reliable shooter but he's shooting over 40% from 3 (just 1.4 attempts per game) this year. I don't think the asking price will be that high, we could do TLC + 2nd round pick (or picks) for him.

Adding JJ would be great for sure, especially on a buyout. I would think that if we sign him it could also give us more flexibility in including another player like Shamet or TLC (even though we haven't really relied on him for shooting in a while) in a potential Dinwiddie trade.

The Dinwiddie trade could include TLC for space.

So, we could open up a roster spot by dealing Dinwiddie with TLC, multiple 2nds for space and add Redick with the extra spot, possibly Drummond or McGee.

Yeah adding reddick makes shamet expendable. ideal scenario:

Dinwiddie + Shamet + TLC + second for Powell
Sign reddick after buyout
Trade 2 seconds and perry for McGee

Harden | Kyrie | Harris| KD | Claxton
TJ | Powell | Reddick | Blake/Green/Brown | DJ/McGee

Thats a complete team.

Tell me how exactly you defend this...

Harden | Kyrie | Reddick | Harris | KD

Thats like 5 of the top 8 shooters in the entire league, the best offense creator in the league, and the 3 best iso players in the league

He's not that young (26 years old), and he's a piece that fits better on a contender/playoffs team than a rebuild team. OKC also love picks. Also this isn't me making up stuff, his name has been brought up by some reporters as a name to watch out for. From today's trade deadline article on The Athletic:

Keep an eye on Kenrich…
One below-the-radar name I’ve been told to watch at the deadline: Oklahoma City forward Kenrich Williams. A sign-and-trade throw-in to make the cap math work on the Pelicans’ trade for Steven Adams, “Kenny Hustle” has had a breakout year with the Thunder. No, he isn’t an elite athlete, and his shooting has always been a question mark. Nonetheless, he has established himself as a rotation-caliber player at both forward spots for the rebuilding Thunder with his ballhandling, plus rebounding, tough D and generally high basketball IQ.

Additionally, Williams has one of the best contracts in the league: It’s just $2 million a year, and he’s signed for two more years after this one. It’s not even guaranteed money, so an acquiring team could get off it due to injury or ineffectiveness. Acquiring a rotation player that cheaply should be very attractive for the league’s contenders, most of whom are bound by luxury tax or hard-cap issues.

The 26-year-old Williams would likely command at least a second-round pick, allowing the Thunder to add to their draft hoard. Subtracting Williams would also help the Thunder in another sense, as the team keeps inadvertently winning games and harming its own lottery odds.

Love how the Thunder traded Chris Paul because he made them so good and now they're trying to get rid of more players because they're "inadvertently winning games" lmao.

Chris Haynes just reported on Inside the NBA that LaMarcus Aldridge will be meeting with the Heat, Nets, Lakers and Clippers before a decision.

I feel like Drummond and Aldridge are both going to pass us over for opportunities to play bigger roles (bigger paydays). I'm calling Drummond to Boston and Aldridge to the Heat.

If you are Drummond you honestly think you won't start over DJ? Come on son.

If you can't outplay DJ you don't deserve a ring in the first place.

Claxton is developing nicely off the bench so we should keep that going but DJ is always a huge negative to start games... seems like we always go down and then he goes to the bench and we make a run to get back in games.. .at some point you gotta move on.

Curious to see who will take the last 2 spots before the playoffs start.

I'm hoping we acquire a good C to take minutes from DJ and another playmaker/wing type that can give us a boost until Dinwiddie is back.
