They can't attract free agents. He's still at least really good even if he isn't what he once was. Teague is in the last year of his deal.

Still safer for the Wolves to build around KAT while developing their young guys.

If they want to go all in we could offer CP3 and Gallo for Wiggins/Dieng/Teague/Okogie and picks.

KAT/Gallo/Covington/Culver/CP3 would be an awesome line up but no bench, 2 injury prone players and still not good enough to beat the best teams in the West.

Nice fit with Adams.

Not enough playing time for CP3/SGA/Schroeder though.

Can we move Schroeder before Billy Donovan starts making some dumb line ups?

this is bluster just like the miami stuff is bluster. both teams want to do something. it may drag on a bit but i'm closer to the side that he's going to be traded.

I love that we're standing pat with Paul. I think our team will still be firmly lottery bound but at least watchable which is about all you could ask for.

Ya hopefully we are in the lottery but have a few amazing performances against Houston like the Mavs have had against us.

It's Sourcesplug against Windhorst right now.

Just hope CP3 gets traded to another team so both will end up being wrong :)

CP3 would be the 6th HOF to play in OKC. Not that bad

I guess the key part is ''playing out the year with the Thunder''. They hope they can get something better at the trade deadline.

CP3 will be highly motivated to play well. Must pray on that hamstring though

Can we get rid of Schroeder now?

We can get rid of him at any time for 2-3 first round picks. He will be here to help lose games.

As long as SGA starts next to CP3 I'll be fine. If SGA loses minutes it's a terrible situation for OKC long term.

Nah. Only one first round pick is enough to get rid of Schroeder. He will help to lose games but we need to develop SGA and ''increase'' CP3 trade value.

Well I guess more teams could be open to trade for CP3 in December..
