- sign p. gasol (2-year, 11m)

westbrook - jackson - napier

durant - jones - roberson
ibaka - collison
gasol - adams - thabeet


It wall take Jackson or lamb or jones and #21 pick for afflalo

Gasol will not sign for 5.5 million a year

Afflalo will cost Jackson 29th pick and Perkins for Afflalo. Napier replaces Jackson



16 Apr 2014 01:30:30
Thunder offseason

Trade Lamb, #22 pick for Afflalo

29- Andrew Harrison

Sign Paul Pierce 1yr 3m

Sign Francisco Garcia 1yr 1m

Sign Pau Gasol 2yr 9m (wants championship)

Amnesty Perkins

PG: Westbrook
SG: Afflalo
SF: Durant
PF: Ibaka
C: Gasol
6: Reggie Jackson
7: Pierce
8: Steven Adams
9:Nick Collison
10:Francisco Garcia
11: Perry Jones III
12: Andre Roberson
Res: Andrew Harrison

Young championship team with good potential

I think you need to learn cba rules. A team over the cap can't make a trade like 2m-salary player for 7m-salary player.



15 Apr 2014 06:48:28
Thunder get Ben McLemore

Kings get Jeremy Lamb and #22 Dal pick

2 players with great potential that may need new changes of scenery. Add the pick to Sac because I think Maclemore has a little more upside.



14 Apr 2014 20:55:48
Okc gets Marcin Gortat 5 yrs 40 million

Why would the magic give up a pick



14 Apr 2014 17:19:17
Wizards - Pistons - Thunder - 76ers

Wizards trade M Gortat (s&t), 2015 1st round pick
Wizards receive G Monroe (s&t)

Pistons trade G Monroe (s&t)
Pistons receive P Jones, Wizards 2015 1st round pick, Thunder 2014 1st round pick (via Mavs)

Thunder trade P Jones, K Perkins, 2014 1st round pick (via Mavs), 2014 2nd round pick
Thunder receive M Gortat (s&t)

76ers receive K Perkins, Thunder 2014 2nd round pick

- Wizards want Monroe
- Pistons get 2 1st round picks for Monroe since Smith has no trade value
- Thunder get Gortat who probably wants to play for championship
- 76ers have 30 million (?) on the books for next season and must pay a minimum of 48 million (I think). They take on some "extra" salary they would have to pay anyway but essentially get a free 2nd round pick

Wizards cannot trade their 2015's 1st round pick



14 Apr 2014 16:37:19
Thunder offseason

Trade Lamb and #22 pick for Afflalo


Sign Paul Pierce 1yr 1m

Sign Shannon Brown 1yr minimum

Trade Andre Roberson and 2016 1st rd pick for Gortat (4yr 22m) or Gadol (2yr 11m)

PG: Westbrook
SG: Afflalo
SF: Durant
PF: Serge Ibaka

Show some respect for Pierce 1 m is not enough.



14 Apr 2014 11:17:44

Thunder get Monroe (s&t), affalo

Pistons get sefolosha (s&t), okc pick
Draft smart, Hairston

Magic get Perkins, dal pick
Draft exum, hood and Harrell

Westbrook, Jackson
Affalo, lamb
Durant, Robertson
Ibaka, jones
Monroe, Adams

Smart, Jennings
Hairston, kcp
Sefolosha, Singler


I think okc give more. 2016's 1st rounder to Detroit may balance it

OKC gives a worthless guy in Perkins and a RFA that's ok in sefalosha, get a great bigman in Monroe and a great wing man in Afflalo? i'm going out on a limb here and saying this trade was made by an OKC fan

Crap trade okc fan

Jennings on the bench?



14 Apr 2014 07:05:15
Thunder - Lakers - 76ers

Thunder trade both 2014 picks, K Perkins
Thunder receive P Gasol (s&t)

Lakers trade P Gasol
Lakers get Dallas 2014 1st round pick

76ers get Thunder 2014 1st round pick, K Perkins
76ers buy out Perkins and he goes to a playoff team who needs a 2nd or 3rd string big man for vet min

Who the hell did the 76ers gave for Perkins?

Thunder could just sign Pau as he's a fa amnesty perkins and keep their picks

Gasol is not worth 2- 1st round picks he is not worth 1 1st round pick - 76ers get a 1st round pick and Perkins and they give up nothing

^ Don't underrate Pau Gasol, put him in a contender and he will give you descent numbers for his position



13 Apr 2014 22:37:53
Pau Gasol Leaves: Scenario 1

Pau wants to play for a contender, OKC are a contending team that could use his assistance. However, OKC will not have enough cap space to sign Pau to a decent deal, which means a sign & trade with the Lakers. The Lakers would not want to take back Perkins contract in return.

Lakers Receive:
-Cody Zeller

Thunder Receive:
-Pau Gasol (good friends with Ibaka too, they can alternate PF/C)

Bobcats Receive:
-Kendrick Perkins
-Jeremy Lamb

Bobcats get involved because they are a young up and coming team who have just made the playoffs. Bringing in Perkins will give them the option to let Al play PF and/or bring more toughness and locker room leadership to this young team. Perkins doesn't get traded to a tanking/bad team and the Bobcats get Jeremy Lamb in return as well. OKC clears a little bit more space to offer a contract to a valuable sixth (Avery Bradely, Rodney Stuckey, Evan Turner?) + Thabo's contract will be off, they can either resign him or sign one of the players listed above or someone else. Lakers aren't left with anything.

Why would the Bobcats do this?



13 Apr 2014 18:19:32
Gsw trade Bogut and Iggy
Gsw get Ibaka sefolosha and Perkins

Ind trade Turner Hibert and Watson
Ind get Iggy lamb and both okc first

Okc trade Ibaka lamb Perkins and both 1st

Okc-Gets a great center and a third scorer

Ind-Gets a caliber allstar and third scorer with Iggy plus 2 draft pick and one fills in for Hubert and the other can please hill As a starter



13 Apr 2014 17:58:09
Chicago gets Jeremy Lamb and 2014 okc pick #29

Okc gets 2014 Cha pick #16 and 2014 chi 2nd rd pick #48.

Okc drafts Zach Lavine. making a scary back court of him and Westbrook



13 Apr 2014 15:41:44
Thunder - Kings - Pistons

Thunder get J Terry, Kings' pick #7
Kings get Greg Monroe, OKC pick via Dallas
Pistons get Perry Jones III, Jeremy Lamb, JJ Thompson

Thunder select Julius Randle CJ Fair



13 Apr 2014 02:38:51
Okc gets Greg Monroe s&t 5yrs 60 million

Detroit gets Steven Adams, Kendrick Perkins, 2014 dal pick, and 2014 okc pick

Pf. S. Ibaka/ P. Jones/ G. Jarrett
Sf. K. Durant/ C. Butler/
C. G. Monroe/ N. Collison/ H. Thabeet
Sg. T. Sefalosha/ J. Lamb/ A. Roberson
Pg. R. Westbrook/ R. Jackson/ A. Abrines

Too much for Monroe. Adams may be a valuable player in future and picks may be also useful.

Think Monroe will fit the Thunder, they have Ibaka to defend, Monroe is more on post-up which OKC are lacking, but I agree, it may be too much for him

Okc needs to win now. if they can bring in a 15 and 10 center now then I don't care if they lose a center that might be good in 3 years and two late round draft picks who might be decent role players. plus okc dumps perk

I think it's selling the pistons short. Perkins is crap!



12 Apr 2014 21:55:28

GSW get Roy Hibbert, Thabo Sefolosha, Evan Turner and OKC pick

OKC get Andrei Igoudala, Thad Young

IND get Andrew Bogut, Jeremy Lamb

PHI get Kendrick Perkins, Dallas' pick






12 Apr 2014 15:17:23
Thunder Offseason:

Before the trade, Thunder made trade

Amnesty Perkins


SUNS get Lamb, Thabo, Jones, OKC draft pick
OKC get Bledsoe and Marcus Morris

OKC draft Aaron Harrison (#21)

OKC Lineup:

G- Westbrook/Jackson
G- Bledsoe/Harrison
F- KD/Butler
F- Ibaka/Morris
C- Adams/Collison

Not going to happen suns won't trade either bledsoe or Mook Morris


OKC fans love it, but Suns fans say hell no!

This is a stupid trade. With all the draft picks the Suns have they need a trade where they get less players that are better. You can only keep 15 players on your roster. The Suns would have to cut 2 players after this trade.

Westbrook could not play with Bledsoe! He is too selfish.



11 Apr 2014 23:10:21
Bucks - Thunder - Celtics

Bucks get #4 pick, #18 pick, #21 pick, Jared Sullinger, Kendrick Perkins (expiring deal), Perry Jones III

Thunder get Avery Bradley, Brandon Bass

Celtics get Larry Sanders, # 1 pick

-Bucks will get plenty of young players to be part of their rebuild
-Thunder add well-fitted players in their roster
-Celtics will have their next franchise player with the 1st overall selection, and land a center in Sanders



11 Apr 2014 19:33:24
Thunder Nets Warriors

Thunder get Andrew Bogut
Nets get Kendrick Perkins and OKC pick
Warriors get Andray Blatche (sign and trade), Mirza Teletovic

Blatche and Mirza for Perkins and a pick - funny.



11 Apr 2014 18:41:37
Oklahoma City - Memphis - Cleveland

Oklahoma City trade Kendrick Perkins (exp), Mavs 1st round pick, Jeremy Lamb
Oklahoma City receives Dion Waiters, Tony Allen, Spencer Hawes (sign and trade)

Memphis trade Tony Allen
Memphis get Jarrett Jack

Cleveland trade Dion Waiters, Spencer Hawes, Jarrett Jack
Cleveland get Jeremy Lamb, Kendrick Perkins, Mavs 1st from OKC

Good for OKC, unless they are not over tax line.

OKC doesn't need rookies. They are a championship contender, only they need is more experienced players



11 Apr 2014 14:19:56
OKC Thunder plan

Trade with Dallas

Give Dallas Kendrick Perkins (expiring) and their 1st round pick (OKC)

Receive Wayne Ellington (2.5mil)
dont pick up Hasheem Thabeets team option (1. 25mil)

save 7mil

- projected salary for 2014 season (66M) less 7mil is around 59-60M

-sign Greg Monroe (4yr 50mil), 10mil 1st yr

-salary for 2014-15 season is (around 70mil), threshold is around 75mil

-sign Sefolosha (3yr 12mil)

-draft Cleanthony Early

Roster for 2014-15 season
R. Westbrook / R. Jackson
T. Sefolosha / J. Lamb / W. Ellington
K. Durant / P. Jones III / A. Roberson
S. Ibaka / N. Collison / C. Early
G. Monroe / S. Adams

Salary cap will be around $62. 1M. So, they won't have enough cap space for monroe. Only way is acquaring him via sign&trade.



11 Apr 2014 09:15:10
OKC offseason

- draft a. payne (21th pick) and p. j. hairston (29th pick)
- trade a. payne, k. perkins, p. j. hairston, 2016's 1st&2nd rounders for g. monroe (4-year, $50M)
- resign t. sefolosha (2-year, $5M)
- resign c. butler (2-year, $5M)

Westbrook - jackson
Sefolosha - lamb - roberson
Durant - butler
Ibaka - jones - collison
Monroe - adams


Why trade the picks and let the pistons select? is that possible?

Draft process is before free agency
