    I mean Morey has to make that call right? Doubt we could offer anything of significance though

    They should but they can't. Most other teams can come up with a more attractive trade package

    We have nothing to give OKC that more than half the league can't give them. Last year and all the wasted draft picks cost us everything!

    Don't have the trade assets.

    Should however, keep the cap space open to go after him in free agency.

    We are a top Free Agent destination. He may just sign he for less money.

    Most of the teams have better asset but will they pull the trigger? It's one-year rental.

    They will want harden. I thought Harden was better than westbrook three seasons ago. Now I would do that trade.
