I'm shocked. This hurts OKC without Harden off the bench now. Martin is fragile and doesn't bring a lot to the table like Harden.

But in the future? They look scary. They can use those picks and Martin's expiring to get better pieces.

That is how teams like OKC and SA build. They make smart decisions and make great draft selections.

This is how it will go for OKC

As more guys come up on extensions.... the question will always be...will they pay?
If i were their fans I'd be really worried ...when the New CBA goes hardcore next year
Their window maybe smaller than ours..... in another way that is
The Jerseys Hanging from the Rafters represent LAKER GREATS who are also NBA GREATS

LAKERS NO FAKERS

Does ESPN have any valid sources? It seems Yahoo! is always first in reporting trades and then ESPN follows up later.

The Thunder may have now moved into the discussion with the LA Lakers, as they just got a great deal more ...

offense at the two guard position, both in the starting unit and also off the bench. OKC also unloads some baggage in the process. Sam Presti is the best GM in the NBA, bar none

I doubt it, but interesting to think about.

OKC gets a huge expiring contract, two future top 15-20 picks, and a promising young rook on his rookie deal. This makes sure they stay relevant for the next 10 years. Nice job by their GM on not being afraid to look past this season and pull the trigger.

Too bad for them this trade hurts their chances of beating the Lakers this season.

This will happen regardless. Westbrook will want to be the top dog on a team and that will not happen as long as KD is healthy.

The more the Thunder looks the more Durant and Westbrook seem to hate each other

OKC fans from other forums reactions

I'm not happy with Presti right now.

Presti, you jack-A$$!!

Presti is working within parameters set by the owners.

And obviously, Presti and the owners did not value Harden as much as the fans do .

We moved to OKC for this? Why get a franchise if u can't afford one?


lol

I don't really have a big problem with the trade, but I HATE Kevin Martin. He has never been much of a team player.

They are protected draft picks guys, protected. Nothing of value to see here, move along.

Ha, its kind of pathetic that OKC fans are trying to convince themselves they improved in the short term with this deal.

Funny when people say Lakers chemistry is an issue, but OKC makes a trade days before the season starts and people won't mention it.

You have no idea how beast Jeremy Lamb is they are so much better with this trade


:laughing: wow and you say some of us don't know basketball please, Jeremy Lamb needs to get bigger stronger and seasoned he will not be better than Harden it will take 2-3 years for a ROOKIE like him to get going in the NBA. OKC did not get better, yea let me trade my sixth man of the year for a rookie that got picked 11th and my team will be the best ever the recipe to win jaja u make me laugh sir.

Don't forget the media acted like Harden cured cancer after being elbowed by Metta

Harden was an integral part of OKC. I dont believe the new players will fill that void. I think they will definitely contribute, but not as much as harden would have.

I'm with you on that this trade makes no sense if they are trying to win now.

He's a 6'6" shooting Gaurd who can handle the ball and score from anywhere on the floor and has crazy wingspan and is a good defensive player
