If Derrick Rose is healthy he is the second best point guard then it's Westbrook. If Kobe is healthy I would have him above wade

As shown when they shipped Harden off to Houston, the Thunder are not afraid to trade big name guys in order to not lose them for nothing AND build towards the future AND seek a deep, balanced, young roster. Does anyone think Durant would leave?

I am a huge Thunder fan and want a Thunder jersey on Durant's back for the duration of his career. However, if he were to leave, I don't want to lose a top 2 player in the league for absolutely nothing. But does any team have the ammunition to go get Durant?

The only trade I could come up with that I might consider is a trade to the Blazers. Durant and Perk for Batum, Aldridge, and 2 or three first round picks. But I don't know if I can see that happening. So can anyone come up with a trade that would make sense for the Thunder if Durant is intent on leaving?

ChurchPugh


Thunder-Warriors

Thunder get Iggy, Thompson, Bogut
Lineup:
Westbrook/Jackson/Telfair
Thompson/Lamb/Jackson
Iggy/Morrow/Jones
Ibaka/Collison/McGary

I think this team is much deeper and has all around game

Warriors get Durant, Perkins, Roberson

I think that OKC has made clear what their depth chart will be by their offseason acquisitions or lack there of.


Pf. S. Ibaka/ N. Collison/ G. Jarrett
Sf. K. Durant/ P. Jones/ A. Roberson
C. K. Perkins/ S. Adams/ M. McGary
Sg. R. Westbrook/ J. Lamb/ A. Morrow

- For some crazy reason Sam Presti is married to Kendrick Perkins and he will be the starter again. aside from drafting Westbrook and Ibaka, every move Presti has made has been horrible
