    I doubt they care about how a guy who isn't going to play for them soon one way or another feels. If they did in the past, they don't now after he torched them in the media yesterday.

    They are going to move him to whichever team gives them the best return and Dragic is killing their flexibility by threatening to not resign with everyone but the Knicks or Lakers. Since neither team has anything of value to offer them, Houston is sounding more and more likely by the hour.

    Philly will get their 2015. They can't trade 2016. Suns get 2017. Can't trade 2018. Suns get 2019. Would this not leave them with 2 first rounders until 2020?

    I think it's a great move for them. Hate it as a Rockets fan. Thunder are stacked with talent.

    Lopez is a stiff - I don't get this. I guess this move would allow them to FINALLY amnesty Perkins right?

    Lopez has talent but too heavy a breeze and he gets injured.

    Durant loves Perkins. I'd be stunned if they dropped him.

    Lopez will be a good fit for the Thunder in my opinion. Hate this move.

    Lopez isn't going to do **** for them.

    OKC really doesn't seem to understand the concept of low usage, highly effective roleplayers.

    Lopez is up there with the most overrated players in the league.

    IF they get Lopez, it could be really fun watching them knock out the Warriors in the 1st round. Not that it couldn't happen without Lopez, but if Lopez is healthy for the playoffs, I think it really helps OKC knock them off easily.

    Lopez gets the Thunder in the playoffs until he breaks something.

    Just over 4 hours left and there's almost no meaningful activity from anyone. It either will be the worst trade deadline or the busiest final hours ever.

    They're stupid if they don't trade him to whichever team is offering the bast package, regardless of who it is. Those teams he "doesn't want to play for" are just a ploy by his agent to get him to NY or LA so they can cash in.

    Miami will be the new Brooklyn if these picks are unprotected. If they are unprotected then they beat the value of DMO+ NOP pick. Becaue Miamis core is TOO OLD already.
