OKC- Denver trade

OKC sends Kendrick Perkins (exp.)Perry Jones III, and 2015 first round pick for JJ Hickson and Randy Foye.

Randy Foye and JJ Hickson fill the starting line up positions for OKC. - sg and c
OKC do this trade because they need additional scorer(foye) behind westbrook and durant. and Hickson added also some defense along with Ibaka on the floor.

then the OKC sign Chris Douglas Roberts to back up Durant

line up:
durant/douglas roberts/robertson



Hickson at center is a defensive negative, not positive. He's not very good defensively when playing his natural PF, make him an undersized center and it's terrible.

Wolves get Kendrick Perkins expiring deal and 2015 1st

Thunder get Kevin Martin

Wolves do this simply to get out of Martins contract. Well all know that Martin is better than Perkins but the Wolves are in rebuild mode and have a ton of young wings as it is. This helps big time with the salary cap. They probably negotiate a buy out with him. and they get a 1st rounder as a cherry on top

Thunder need Martin back because Lamb just isn't producing the way they hoped he would. He also knows the system. They win now and eventually move Lamb

Magic get;Ibaka Future 1st

Thunder get;Vucevic,B.Gordon,Nicholson




Dude. for the last time Steven Adams is nowhere near a power forward and Ibaka isn't a center. what is the point of you taking 2 teams that have a solid center/PF combo and makin it so one team has 2 PFs and the other has 2 Centers?!?!




25 Aug 2014 19:14:33
Toronto gets Kendrick Perkins

OKC gets Landry Fields

Both are expiring deals. Toronto brings in Perkins since they don't have a true back up center. they only ran Fields 10mpg last season

Okc gets a Sefalosha replacement. a guy that can start at shooting guard, play defense, and average close to 10 a game with about 20-25 minutes per game


Very good


Thunder say no




25 Aug 2014 18:23:51

PHX get: Hibbert & 2015 1st (OKC)

IND get: Reggie Jackson & Perkins

OKC get: Eric Bledsoe

Okc final moves

Okc gets Iman Shumpert

NY gets Perry Jones, Hasheem Thabeet, and 2015 1st rd pick top 20 protected

Thunder can't offer okafor more than annual 2m salary because they used 3.3m of their MLE (5.3m) on a.morrow.


Okafor said he isn't picking a team til midway through the season


Who in their right mind would give Emeka $6M a year?

Waive perkins

Okc gets Chase Budinger

Minny gets Kendrick Perkins exp deal

Okc does it for bench scoring. Their 2nd unit would be
Pf. P. Jones
Sf. C. Budinger
C. N. Collison
Sg. A. Morrow
Pg. R. Jackson

Minny does it for the expiring deal and an upgrade at back up center


Okc doesn't get a replacement at center, Budinger sucks and is never healthy, and Minnesota would then have 4 centers(Pekovic, Dieng, Turiaf, and now Perkins). Horrible trade for both teams. Perkins, a 1st rounder, and maybe Lamb or Perry Jones for Pekovic is more realistic.




23 Aug 2014 13:28:33

Robinson III-Hummel-Turiaf

Four people here really believe you can get Ibaka for that?


Not enough for ibaka


I don't see them trading with one another




22 Aug 2014 06:56:23
Nikola Pekovic for Kendrick Perkins, Jeremy Lamb, and OKC 1st

Westbrook / Jackson / Telfair
Morrow / Roberson
Durant / Huestris
Ibaka / Collison / McGary
Pekovic / Adams


Not to nitpick but it would be Perry Jones at back up small forward. good trade tho


And Minny would probably WANT to include Kevin Martin and Nick Collison because they have been wanting to dump his contract so.

Pf. Ibaka/ Jones/ Jarret
Sf. Durant/ Roberson/ Huestis
C. Pekovic/ Adams/ Thabeet
Sg. Martin/ Morrow
Pg. Westbrook/ Jackson/ Telfair


If I were thunder's gm, I wouldn't trade for pekovic because one day thunder will try to extend durant, westbrook and ibaka's contracts without paying luxury tax. Pekovic's 48m-contract would hurt that.


^ that's what I was thinking but I think the only way the thunder keep them is by winning and tight now they're 2-3 teams better than them. They need a center and bench help




22 Aug 2014 06:23:01

Suns get Durant , Westbrook , Perkins , Collison

Thunder get Bledsoe , Morris Twins , Green , Len , 3 1st


Change the Morris twins to the splash bros, change Len to Howard and green to Melo. Then you might have a chance


Thunder turn from championship contender to lottery team in seconds

Celtics 4 life

Throw in a prime Charles Barkely and Kevin Johnson and u have a deal

Bucks trade: Mayo/Ersan/Knight
Bucks get: Bledsoe (62/4), PJ3

With Phx now looking to trading Bledsoe, the Bucks lack a PG. With Parker as a rookie he will not be expected to go 40 mins a night so PJ3 as a back up will see good playing time.

OKC trade:Perkins PJ3
OKC gets: Mayo

OKC is in a win now mode. Adams has shown that he can take over as the starting C so removing the contract would be beneficial to OKC. KD will still dominate time at SF so PJ3 will see limited minutes. OJ ceiling has been seen and although he does not have more room to grow he offers a solid 2 spot in the rotation with

The rotation becomes an scoring Machine

Phx trade Bledsoe
Phx gets: Perkins Ersan Knight

Phx work with a contract did not go as expected so rather than having a 1 year QO with an unhappy Bledsoe it is in the teams best interest. Knight allows for the dou backcourt threat and they could be able to extend him
Next season learning from the mistakes done before. Perkins offers a strong front court as their youth develops and he could return on a smaller scale contract. His expiring deal also preserves money that the Suns will need to offer to their players when their rookie contracts end. Ersan is a stretch 4 that can shoot outside shots so with their backcourt the suns can stretch the floor.

succeed and proceed

PHX says no. Perkins? No way. Point to be made. the Suns are looking to trade thing. got started on a talk radio station by a 3rd rate TV reporter. who is always behind ev eryone else in reporting stuff. so, he thought he'd get some play. Suns still want Bledsoe. we'll see how it all plays out. this deal, though?. Nah.




21 Aug 2014 18:31:48
Minnesota reportedly unlikely to trade for Young

Thunder make a move


76ers get Perkins, Jones, 1st rd pick

Thunder get Thad Young


Sixers might go for that. The Wolves reportedly want Philly to take Shved and Mbah-whatever instead of Bennett. That won't fly.

Boy Howdie



21 Aug 2014 08:43:28
Thunder get Ersan Ilyasova

Bucks get Kendrick Perkins expiring deal and 2015 1st rd pick

This is a salary cap move for the Bucks. they've been trying to move Ilyasova and in this deal they get an expiring deal and a 1st rounder. They probably even work out a buy out with Perkins so he can join the Heat like Pat Riley wants


Bucks can get more then a back up center and a late first round draft pick.


They can't get more. He averaged 10 points a game with the worst team in the league.He would probably go to OKC and average about 8 but he would be a streaky guy that might only give 4 points one game and then 16 the next.


Take out the pick.




21 Aug 2014 01:37:33
Thunder make a move to win now

Okc gets Aaron Afflalo and Darrell Arthur

Den gets Jeremy Lamb, Perry Jones, Kendrick Perkins, Semaj Christion, and 2015 unprotected 1st

Pf. S. Ibaka/ D. Arthur/ G. Jarrett
Sf. K. Durant/ A. Roberson/ J. Huestis
C. S. Adams/ N. Collison/ M. McGary
Sg. A. Afflalo/ A. Morrow
Pg. R. Westbrook/ R. Jackson/ S. Telfair


I like this trade but it favors OKC more, Denver doesn't need to trade its stars for even more depth, they need to trade their depth for stars




20 Aug 2014 14:48:52
2 Thunder Moves to make them a true title contender

1. Trade Lamb, Thabeet, 2nd rd pick for Tony Allen, defensive specialist

2. Trade Perkins, Adams, Jones and a lottery protected 1st rd pick for Kelly Olynyk and Jeff Green

Sign Emeka Okafor



None of those trades seem to work other then the Thudner get rid of garbage and get players in return.


Adams and Lamb are far from garbage


Really what has Lamb done other then sit the bench to a team that traded for him from a team that sat him on the bench because he can not perform. Adams is a prospect at best right now. Tony Allen is a proven asset in this league.




20 Aug 2014 04:13:36
Grizzlies get Jeremy Lamb, Hasheem Thabeet, and 2016 1st

Thunder get Tony Allen




20 Aug 2014 00:38:33
Warriors Offseason


GS trades David Lee, Andre Iguodala, sNt Jordan Crawford.
OKC trades Serge Ibaka, Kendrick Perkins, Jeremy Lamb.

OKC finally gets good SG, as well as a good veteran PF. Plus they dump Perkins.

GS gets more of a floor spacer, gets Barnes more playing time, and they don't want Crawford back this year, so they would be fine with him in a sNt. If he doesn't retire, resign Jermaine ONeal (sources close to him say if he doesn't retire, the only team he is looking at is the warriors).

Resign Klay Thompson for 4 yr 50 mil (try and sign him earlier than the offseason so he might not demand the max).

Resign Draymond Green 3yr 20m (after this season, Perkins will be off the books so they won't have to pay the luxury tax).

Stephen Curry/Shuan Livingston
Klay Thompson/Brandon Rush/Jeremy Lamb
Harrison Barnes/Draymond Green
Serge Ibaka/Mareese Speights
Andrew Bogut/Kendrick Perkins/Jermaine ONeal

If a big man gets injured, bring up Ezeli, and if a guard gets injured, rbring up Craft or Nedovic.

This team is solid all around, and will contend this year and for a long time.


U can keep Igoudalas contract. didn't he average like 8ppg last year?. that's too much for a defensive specialist. I'd rather swap Lamb and a pick for Tony Allen


Would absolutely love this trade for the Warriors, and on paper both teams would win, but I just don't see the Thunder trading Ibaka.


Nothing in that package worth Ibaka.


Keep dreaming if you think Thompson will resign for that. It will probably cost at least 14 mil a year to keep him.


Who is the good SG you are talking about Lmab? He is a bust. Nothing in that trade gets U Ibaka.


^Iggy was hurt most of the year, but he still played. He played like the first month healthy and averaged 15 points, but after the hamstring injury his average went down. But he had surgery this offseason, and should be back 100%. But even if he's not, he is a 1st team defender, a very good ballhandler, passer, and a decent shooter. Well worth the cash.


^Totellthetruth I'm talking about Iguodala




19 Aug 2014 10:25:05
Thunder get Jeff Green

Celtics get Kendrick Perkins, 2015 1st, and draft rights to Alex Abrines

Pf. Ibaka/ Jones/ Jarrett
Sf. Durant/ Green/ Roberson
C. Adams/ Collison/ Mcgary
Sg. Westbrook/ Lamb/ Morrow
Pg. Jackson/ Telfair/ Christion


That'd be pretty funny considering Boston initially drafted Green and traded him for Ray Allen back in '08 or w/e. Then a few years ago they essentially did this exact trade with Green for Perkins. Jeff Green would just keep getting shuffled between Okc and Boston




19 Aug 2014 03:35:41
I realize it won't happen because it is not OKC's style. but I'd love to see them go after either Brook Lopez or Hibbert. Both are making between $14-15 million and under contract for two more seasons. Both the Nets and the Pacers could do with some retooling but are cap-strapped. The Thunder could offer a package of Perk ($9 million expiring), Collison ($2 million expring), Lamb, and a pick.

Neither player are particularly athletic, but could thrive next to a player like Ibaka. They also could do well with a player like Adams being able to provide them with ample rest throughout the season and postseason. Additionally, they could provide a strong low-post threat that the team lacks. Conversely, both the Pacers and the Nets could use a shooter like Lamb, an additional pick, and over $10 million in cap relief at this season's end.

OKC lineup.

Westbrook, Telfair
Jackson, Morrow, Roberson
Durant, PJ3
Ibaka, McGary
Lopez or Hibbert, Adams, Thabeet


Think lopez could be better they need low post scoring, Ibaka can do the job on defense




19 Aug 2014 02:41:41
Okc amnesties Kendrick Perkin

Emeka Okafor 2 year 8 million (team option on 2nd year)
Fransisco Garcia 2 years $5 million

Pf. S. Ibaka/ N. Collison/ G. Jarrett
Sf. K. Durant/ P. Jones/ A. Roberson
C. S. Adams/ E. Okafor/ M. Mcgary
Sg. F. Garcia/ J. Lamb/ A. Morrow
Pg. R. Westbrook/ R. Jackson/ S. Telfair


They spent 3.3m of their MLE (5.4m) for morrow. Forget okafor, maybe they can sign garcia.
