and what exactly can they offer? Their best player that they may trade would be Reggie but he's about to become a RFA and I don't know if OKC gives him up yet.

KD-Westbrook are untouchable, Ibaka is probably untouchable/needs a really good player in order to be traded. Collison doesn't have much value plus he's OKC's Haslem (gave up money, been with them through good and bad).

That leaves Perkins who is trash.
Adams who is their future 5 so I don't see it.
Lamb and Perry Jones? That might work. Might need some picks thrown in.

Not sure OKC would surrender both Lamb and Jones in the deal. We know how much they value young players on cheap contracts. One of them would almost certainly have to go, though.

unless they're giving up durant or westbrook, they're not getting chandler. lamb and jones are good and have really good upsides but neither has put it together on a consistent basis yet so itd be redundant to add 2 more players who havent put it all together at the expense of another player who isnt all quite where he should be in terms of production.

Perry Jones did destroy denver earlier this season which left a good impression though. has he returned from injury?

I'm sure Perry Jones would be included in the deal and maybe even Lamb if either Foye and/or Afflalo were to be traded to make room.

The Thunder will probably trade Durant for Chandler. Nuggets throw in a 2nd round pick to even the deal.
