It's an intriguing thought that would not have made sense 24 hours ago.

Bench scoring and rebounding. Does Westbrook play D these days?
No, and he's an awful free-throw shooter. You bring him in to make sure that the second unit doesn't completely grind to a halt on the offensive end.

In no way shape or form will this or should this ever happen. For one, KD hates Westbrook. Second, Westbrook is a horrendous ball hog, me first player who plays zero D.

I'm 100% on board with keeping Ayton now. It will be fascinating to see him with this new starting group.
It is going to be interesting, I will say that.

But really I am more interested to see if CP3 is somehow reinvigorated into being decent.

I like that move from the Hawks. Adding Bey seemed like a counter move for the KD deal. Bey is a solid PF/SF defender but trading him away for a boatload of 2nd's doesn't make sense. I like that for the Suns also.

CP3 needs to get his ass in the gym. Maybe he was discouraged because no moves were made and he felt the team was just playing for nothing. This is his last shot at a chip. We're the favorites now if he plays like he gives a damn.

That was the rumor apparently by doing that they can save 131 million in fees this year and next combined. Has to do with luxury tax I guess.

I hope it works out for Wiseman I like the kid but it's apparent Kerr was not going to play him. Even last night I kept thinking if they played him for 5 minutes they might have won the game, Portland has no big inside, he would have been guarded by Drew Eubanks, but Kerr just doesn't trust Wiseman so may as well dump him

LOL... what's with the all the five second round picks deals? Has someone calculated out the odds that getting five second-rounders results in one guy who potentially makes an NBA roster? :D

Gary Payton II failed his physical, trade might fall apart. They are not allowed to alter it.
