    Harden's the problem. Its clear to see now. You're never going to build a successful team around him since he doesn't play team ball. Its the Harden show every time he steps out on the floor. Get rid of them both. Build a TEAM.

    Hornets arent giving up both Graham and the #3 Pick. Houston has 0 Leverage to get something like that.

    Itll be a combo of Batum,Zeller,Rozier,Monk/Bridges/PJ and that most likely would be Monk since he has given Charlotte a headache with his cocaine issue.

    We have plenty of leverage. We have the best player in the deal, and we don't have MJ in the front office.

    The best player that wants to go. You already have faith that Stone can swindle a team out of a top 3 pick and one of their most promising players who can play the 1/2 spot?

    If we are going in to a rebuild it would be a good deal, especially when picks get added. Simmons would thrive as a player with the ball. Would crerate for everyone. Randle, Simmons and Barrett are all capable of averaging 20ppg

    A trade with Charlotte could make us younger and get more depth as well

    One big thing I'll give Westbrook is, is that we never really tried to make him the main ball handler with Harden off the ball to get best out of both. It was the only tactic that made sense given Westbrook cannot shoot, but we never committed to that.

    We don't want picks. Useless in a weak draft while we are still trying to build around the 2nd best player in the NBA.

    We want a good player or two.

    The question is is Harden going to want to play another season with just random role players with no chance of a championship.

    I think if WB is gone , harden is not far behind

    “Russ considers LeBron part of his inner circle.”

    I am not part of your inner circle; you are not part of my inner circle.

    He could just go (try to) get his real inner circle BFF Chris Paul.

    Depends on the role players.

    All Hakeem needed was Otis Thorpe and some fiery, ragtag role-players.

    We need to use the Gordon/Westbrook 60 million dollars to flush the toilet and find some dudes that are about that life.

    I'd trade damn near anything to get Middleton with Harden and Covington. We can fill in the rest...

    This. If we trade WB for simple role players, expirings and garbage picks you better believe Harden is going to hit the eject button and tell Tilman he wants out. I can't imagine him wanting to stick around and waste another year going nowhere.

    All of these wb trade scenarios the media is pushing out has us getting completely screwed. Some type of three team scenario needs to happen with us getting back some solid win now guys. I don't think any two team trade will make that happen. Maybe a jrue/reddick or oladipo/turner trade but who knows if those teams would even consider that or just laugh us off the phone.
