Dream scenario for Thunder.
Send Waiters and Novak to Philly for second rounders and maybe a minimum contract.
Philly has several low post players after the draft and would strongly benefit from Novak spreading the floor and providing a vet presence. Additionally, they bring in Philly-native Waiters who could get more touches and start as opposed to OKC.
Presti works some magic and lands Danny Green and re-signs Kanter to two-year deals. Green and Kanter would have to sign significantly lesser money deals but would help form a championship team. They sign for two years in order to re-enter free agency when TV money kicks in and the cap rises.
A starting 5 of Westbrook, Green, Durant, Ibaka, and Kanter has zero holes and functions incredibly well as a unit. The bench would include guys like Augustine, Payne, Jones, Roberson, (maybe) Singler, Collison, McGary, Adams. Lots of defense, athleticism, scoring, three point shooting, low post presence, etc.
This would only be sustainable for about 2 years. But its about convincing Durant to stay put.
30 Jun 2015 19:26:57
a) sixers refuse. Waitors is the opposite of what you want with a young team. And calling novak a veteran presence is a joke. Veteran presence relates to someone whos had success and played a lot in the league and can share their leadership and experiences. Novak is a career end of bench player. He is not a vocal leader. And the only reason he's in the league is because of one goofy season with the Knicks leading to a horrible contract.
b) green is not leaving money on the table like that for a ring. He has a ring already, and there are clearly no guarentees that the thunder are winning now that he's there. Additionally, the "TV money" doesn't really mean much to danny green. He isn't a max contract kind guy. once the cap goes up, it doesn't mean people who make 8-10 mill are now going to make 15-20 mill. Besides, only a couple years ago, green was a nobody. He is absolutely capitalizing as much as possible this year because who knows if he progresses. Based off his age and total career, this is about his peak.
Durant is leaving. Your team will be centered around westbrook. That should work out well. He seems level headed and not only about his stats.
30 Jun 2015 20:40:43
Sixers might do it. It's a nice shooter to go along with a scorer in waiters. Waiters still hasn't had a chance to be a star. He's always a second or third or fourth option. Hell he might be the same thing in philly now too.
30 Jun 2015 20:59:04

Bucks have glut at PG, with 5 listed on their roster. They just traded a protected 1st and 2nd to Toronto for Greivis Vasquez.
Sixers get Tyler Ennis
Bucks get OKC protected 1st rounder
About Ennis: barely played last year. 6'3" about 180lbs out of Syracuse. Pick #18 for Suns that went to Bucks in mid season trade. Appears to be a traditional ball distributor, which is what the Sixers need right now to push Tony Wroten over to the scoring slot SG.
Bucks recover a late 1st rounder that was just sent to Toronto.
30 Jun 2015 14:20:47
Too much for Ennis, add a 2nd rounder to Philly
30 Jun 2015 14:49:13
Phillyrich1. Not a bad proposal. I would like to keep that pick to possibly move up in next year's draft or trade flexibility to pull off a deal at the trade deadline. How about signing Corey Joseph and Danny Green from SA. Both would be immediate starters in Philly backcourt. Could use Wroten as scoring spark of the bench( a role he fits best as). Joseph won't cost much, but may actually have to overpay a bit for Green. Both have championship background, and Green is the young vet presence Philly needs. Both have been brought up under coach Brown in SA, so we do have that connection. Also, Green is a northeast guy.
30 Jun 2015 14:55:13
Interesting NBA. Bucks paid a 1st and 2nd for Greivis Vasquez. So I figured the price for Ennis, a recent first rounder, would be a top 18 protected first rounder.
What's also interesting is that MCW is apparently rumored to be traded by the Bucks. Can the Vasquez trade be a lead in to that?
30 Jun 2015 15:17:16
Interesting idea but can enis shoot?? Wroten can't shoot so if we get a point guard who can only pass and drive we basically have mcw again. Wroten right now if my point guard unless I can find a better one.
30 Jun 2015 16:11:49
He barely played last year. Here's from NBADRAFT.net
"Overall: There's not a lot to dislike about this young point guard. He's already a mature distributor, a great finisher, a very deadly outside shooter, and an efficient ball handler. Has the look of a future NBA starter at the PG position. He could ultimately become a lottery pick if he enters this year's draft and he has a great chance to make an impact early on in the pros . Pretty incredible when you consider Syracuse wasn't sure he would start as a freshman when he first arrived on campus . "
30 Jun 2015 18:07:11
I think Ennis is a definite upgrade and a young guy who could be a part of the rebuild. Either okc s #1 or Tokoto and a future #2 for ennis
30 Jun 2015 23:50:00
The 58th pick for the 21st pick last year and a future second please stop.
30 Jun 2015 05:28:58
Ima thunder fan that wants Avery Bradley on the team. How can I get him here to be that defensive starting 2 that can score. Keep in mind that they just drafted Terry Rozier who is the same player but cheaper.
Thunder get Avery Bradley
Celtics get Steven Adams, Perry Jones, and Dj Augustine
(Thunder sign Kendrick Perkins back for cheap)
PF. S. Ibaka/ M. McGary/ S. Novak
Sf. K. Durant/ K. Singler/ A. Roberson
C. E. Kanter/ K. Perkins/ N. Collison
SG. A. Bradley/ D. Waiters/ A. Morrow
Pg. R. Westbrook/ C. Payne/ L. Ridnour
Is this reasonable or what different would it take for the Thunder to get Avery Bradley
29 Jun 2015 19:58:25
Jrue Holliday might be a nice player to take a shot with even with his injury problems.
Sixers trade okc first rounder
Pel trade jrue holiday
Pel free up some much need cap space.
Sixer try get a boardline really good player who already has been in Philly before.
29 Jun 2015 23:35:00
I don't think he would want to come back after getting an extension then getting traded. And holidays a good point guard and a pick that's going be in the 25-30 range it's not worth it. And you try to ripoff the Pelicans by not telling them his injury history and get him back after getting Noel and saric. Nice try
29 Jun 2015 18:29:55
OKC get Dario Saric and Jahlil Okafor
PHI get Kevon Durant
29 Jun 2015 18:48:19
OKC hangs up laughing.
29 Jun 2015 18:53:19
Okafor, Saric, 2016 1st DP, 2016 LAL 1st DP for Durant.
29 Jun 2015 20:00:27
It's actually reasonable that you came up with. But dura the would have to sign an extension before the trade. If not Sixer give up a ton just to lose durant like the thunder are going to do. Thunder need to capitalize now on him.
29 Jun 2015 23:38:39
Stupidest post I've seen
29 Jun 2015 23:38:55
Durant wouldn't want to play in philly either
30 Jun 2015 00:16:47
Doubt okc hangs up they won't be laughing when okc gets NOTHING for Durant when he goes to the wizards
29 Jun 2015 18:12:16
Huge blockbuster coming from a known OKC fan
Okc gets Demarcus Cousins, Rudy Gay, and Nick Young
LAL get Kevin Durant, DJ Augustine, and Perry Jones
Sac gets Deangelo Russell, Enes Kanter s&t, and Julius Randle.
PF. S. Ibaka/ M. McGary/ S. Novak
SF. R. Gay/ A. Morrow/ K. Singler
C. D. Cousins/ S. Adams/ N. Collison

Pg. R. Westbrook/ C. Payne/ L. Ridnour
29 Jun 2015 15:43:23
MEM: Gallinari, Andre Roberson, Steve Novak, a 2nd rd pick from DEN and OKC
Get their scorer in Gallinari, young defender that can learn and replace Tony Allen in the future, stretch four for Zbo and Gasol
PG: Conley, Udrih, Harrison
SG: Allen, Adams, Roberson
SF: Gallinari, Barnes, Carter
PF: Zbo, FA, Martin, Novak
C: Gasol, re-sign Kuofus

29 Jun 2015 17:16:05
mudiay is NOT a SG
29 Jun 2015 19:06:06
But he could, he is 6'5".
30 Jun 2015 05:54:36
Yes I know but he can't shoot as good as a SG should shoot he can be a decent shooter AT BEST
29 Jun 2015 02:22:24
OKC and 76ers trade
Philly gets M.McGarry / PJ III and C.Payne
OKC gets J.Embiid
29 Jun 2015 10:28:55
Why the hell would sixers give up a franchise center for that?
29 Jun 2015 12:42:56
Sixers already have McGarry. His name is Henry Simms.
So this trade really comes down to a POSSIBLE franchise center for a cocky guard.
Do you really think Hinkie is building up top picks for something like this?
29 Jun 2015 14:32:28
Junk for a superstar potential guy. Naaaaa
29 Jun 2015 15:59:32
so you think three of the four doctors Embiid and Hinkie have seen are lying about that banged up foot??
29 Jun 2015 21:55:24
I think when a player says they re pain free and feeling great they play. Plus those guy in t hat trade are terrible. I would take them for free.
29 Jun 2015 01:34:34
Thunder get Avery Bradlley
Celtics get Steven Adams, Perry Jones, and Steve Novak
29 Jun 2015 12:13:08
28 Jun 2015 05:39:11

C. E. Kanter/ S. Adams/ N. Collison
SG. C. Lee/ D. Waiters/ A. Morrow
Pg. R. Westbrook/ C. Payne/ L. Ridnour
28 Jun 2015 15:49:01
Novak would have to be included with a 2nd rounder
28 Jun 2015 03:55:30
76ers get Burke and a 2nd rd pick
Jazz get OKC's 2016 1st and rights to Arturas Gudaitis
28 Jun 2015 17:32:04
Reasonable trade for both teams. Jazz have moved on from Burke.
28 Jun 2015 02:19:53
76ers - okc
76ers get c Layne, s novak
Okc get t wroten or I canan, 2016 1st rd pick
76ers frontload the first year of the contract to j buttler
76ers sign d green or g green
28 Jun 2015 04:45:51
butler don't want to go to PHI
28 Jun 2015 17:33:09
Hate that we give up a first for that garbage. And wroten too. What for??
28 Jun 2015 23:48:14
He meant Cameron Payne. Still it enough for the 14 pick
29 Jun 2015 00:12:45
C Payne can be a star. Giving up a number one pick let's the fans of philly know that they want to win now. With that roster, the number will pick will be high teens
27 Jun 2015 03:32:51
OKC THUNDER plans
OKC get Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
CHA get Dion Waiters, Perry Jones and Stev Novak & future 1st round pick
OKC do this to acquire a young talent who plays D, an assurance if KD decides to leave
CHA do this because they get Batum from a deal, they do need a wing scorer and Waiters can give it to them, would also give a chance for Perry Jones to improve
OKC sign Danny Green (3yr/24mil)
OKC really need a 3 and D guy to play along side Durant and Westbrook
if Kanter would want a big dollar, forget about him sign a cheaper center who can provide offense and defense
Kosta Koufos 3yr/18mil
OKC try to win in KD's last year under contract
PG Russell Westbrook / Cameron Payne
SG Danny Green / Andre Roberson
SF Kevin Durant / Mike Kidd-Gilchrist
PF Serge Ibaka / Mitch McGary / Nick Collison
CE Kosta Koufos / Steven Adams / Dakari Johnson
27 Jun 2015 15:37:51
Way too much to give up for Gilchrist who plays the same position as Durant.
27 Jun 2015 15:49:35
Green will get more than $8M per year
27 Jun 2015 00:18:52
76ers get Bledsoe and Booker
Suns get Okafor, Wroten, and OKC's 2016 1st
27 Jun 2015 02:16:10
No thank you from Sixers.
27 Jun 2015 07:52:37
i like this trade but replace Okafor with Embiid and give up 2 2nd Rnd Pks
26 Jun 2015 20:41:12
PHI-Noel and LAL and OKC picks
PHO-Bledsoe Booker Morris Bros
PHI reasons-Drafted yet another big and need gaurds and shooters.They get Bledsoe and Booker as thier gaurds and Morris Bros as thier strech big shooters.
PHO reasons-Could use the defensive BEAST and rebounder Noel is and they also get two 1st round picks next year one of them most likely a top 10 pick in the draft.
Not a PHI fan but I like the young talent they have and been thinking about what they need to change things around.Love Noel but he and Okafor won't work well together so one has to go and I don't see Okafor leaving unless he wants out.
26 Jun 2015 20:56:07
Sixers have up to 4 first rounders next year. They will get their shooters and guards without having to sacrifice Noel.
Noel fits best with either Okafor or Embiid. Not sure how Okafor and Embiid fit together- IF Embiid becomes healthy enough to get on the court.
26 Jun 2015 23:25:39
Embiid can step away from the basket where as Noel and Okafor have to play close to basket and if PHI fans are willing to wait yet another year to see what the GM does then okay and will either Noel Embiid or Okafor be willing to come off the bench?
27 Jun 2015 02:17:40
Absolutely not. What would Sixers do with Morris twins?? And Bledsoe is extremely overrated.
27 Jun 2015 16:06:58
How is bledsoe overrated and morris bros give them bigs that can strech the floor if anything 76er fans overrate your whole team like Embiid he's good but coming off a major injury for a big man yall won't get anything good for him
26 Jun 2015 17:46:40
Nerlens Noel and OKC first round pick
Eric Bledsoe and Devin Booker
26 Jun 2015 18:15:27
noel works better with embiid then okafur does. sixers say no.
26 Jun 2015 20:00:50
I understand the reason behind this trade but Sixers would give up that much just for Bledsoe. He's not good enough to warren a. Pick and Noel.
26 Jun 2015 20:56:58
I understand being a fan of a team sways one's bias, but you're over-valuing the players on your team. I love Noel, but he's a rebounder a nd a shot blocker, not an all-star. OKC's pick likely will be around #20. Bledsoe can create his own offense and can create for others & Booker projects to be a very good, athletic 2 guard who can shoot the ball well. I think PHI comes out ahead in this deal. All the young players on the 76ers have looked better than they actually are because the team is so bad.
27 Jun 2015 02:20:00
New lakers dynasty.
I know Bledsoe is a joke. He's over paid and not even close to the impact Noel has on the game. Sixers should keep all the bigs and then figure it out later. Not right now we don't even know if embiid is starting next year
27 Jun 2015 16:10:44
both will work well with embiid cause embiid can step away from the basket and score where jahlil and nerlens can not
27 Jun 2015 16:21:11
bledsoe is a top poit gaurd in the league top in assist(14) points(9) steals(8) for point gaurds name a player on your team that has those kind of numbers
26 Jun 2015 16:16:25
4 Team, 4 Player Deal.
Waiters and pick(s) to Philly, Bradley to Charlotte, MKG to OKC, and Embiid to Boston.
Philly gets Dion Waiters and at least one of Boston's many future firsts (maybe 2). Philly kid, would thrive in a system where there are plenty of touches up for grabs. Philly has tons of bigs now and needs guard help. Plus getting a pick(s) helps provide a chance to add more talent moving forward. Embiid may not have been a good fit to begin with, but he provides more ammo to add talent moving forward.
Charlotte gets Avery Bradley. They swap out MKG for another strong defensive player who can also contribute some offense and is under contract longer. This allows Batum to slide to the 3 and develop strong perimeter D. They make a playoff push.
OKC gets Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. This is all about assuming Thunder return to achieving their finals aspirations. MKG can provide hustle and guard the opponents best wing late in games. His contract is similar to Waiters and is a calculated risk.
Boston gets Joel Embiid. Boston was rumored to dealing with Sixers if Okafor slipped past the Lakers in the draft. Instead, they grab Embiid who isn't game ready but could be a franchise center in a few years. They flip Bradley who doesn't necessarily fit going forward and one of their many future firsts for a potential cornerstone. They can either flip Embiid in their pursuit of Cousins or bring him along slow.
26 Jun 2015 16:58:06
Hi risk hi reward trade for C's. How does okc steal MKG, for waiters the 2nd coming of JR Smith
27 Jun 2015 02:20:44
No from Sixers.
27 Jun 2015 03:38:11
Boston says NO!! Avery fits their future with his defensive ability. I don't know what magazine your reading but put it down. If they can't secure Monroe or another big man then maybe, just maybe, they'll talk with 76er's. but I doubt it.
25 Jun 2015 19:55:06
please from an OKC Fan!!
now that it appears Demar Derozan is available
OKC gets Demar Derozan
TOR gets Serge Ibaka and Perry Jones
pf. E. Kanter/ M. McGary/ S. Novak
sf. K. Durant/ K. Singler/ A. Roberson
c. S. Adams/ M. Turner #14/ N. Collison
sg. D. Derozan/ D. Waiters/ A. Morrow
pg. R. Westbrook/ D. Augustine/ T. Trice #48
then we could either play the season out or you could just give us the championship to begin with. either way is fine.
25 Jun 2015 20:25:24
How about Waiters, Novak, Ridnour and #14 pick for DeRozan assuming your right and he is no the block
Btw if this trade happens it puts OKC in the top two in the west but don't think it's a run away title
