    I may actually do that if it’s a 3 team deal, with Durant going to a 3rd team and us getting a younger stud. Hard to see though.

    That is kinda my point, the picks moving forward and all the swaps are nice, but soon we won't really need YOUNGER players......so why not pick up Durant, and FLIP him to somewhere else if necessary......

    I dunno, just some fun speculation - pre draft.

    Count me in, I'd even consider giving Milwaukee their pick back for Giannis.

    I would assume someone else could beat that offer, but if that's the price then its an emphatic hell yes, if only because I think I could immediately flip him for a harden type deal where we get 7 more unprotected future picks. in essence would I want to trade wall+17 for 7 unprotected future picks? obviously, and twice on Sundays.

    Well, I completely disregarded your proposal because it would take literally every draft pick they gave us to get him. Maybe more. He's worth at least as much as Harden was when we traded him. Likely more, because he doesn't choke in the playoffs.

    If you could get him for Wall and a single #17 pick, yeah, do that and figure it out. But you can't.

    We’re not ready to compete so no. We need to trade for the future, not now

    He’ll be 34 and breaking down. Not only does he provide no benefit, he would be a detriment if it cost us picks. The Durant ship has sailed.

    this would basically be like the spurs kawhi trade so it's not THAT insane? They got 1 pick (lower then 17) and at the time a worse negative asset the wall (plus a decent center)

    My 99'er brother in Christ, WHAT?

    I'd trade Wall for anything. And I'd trade everyone on the team and all of yall posters for Durant, so long as I can get rid of the ownership and fire that bald GM yall love for no reason.

    GARM is the new D&D. Cant visit it. Lulz.
