Re: TWITTER: OKC sends James Harden to Houston for Kevin Martin

Yeah Martin's in the last year of his deal.

Everyone's reporting this now, I think 'twitter' can be taken out of the thread title.

Bingo ! The new cap rules are in play here. They couldn't keep the whole team together and stay under the tax. Someone had to go.

Damn what? Kevin Martin, Jeremy Lamb (lottery pick), and 2 first round picks?

Those could be good picks too. Toronto's is guaranteed lottery, and Dallas is looking good for a free fall this year.

Yeah, and Charlotte's 2nd rounder, which should be in the 31-34 range.

Presti just Sandusky'd Morey.

Could they also move Martin Expiring for a pick? Kevin Martin doesnt seem like the guy that will fit with Westbrooke and Durant

They might be needing a big man or two by then. Fits perfectly.

Re: TWITTER: OKC sends James Harden to Houston for Kevin Martin

Good deal for OKC. They got a good return for Harden now in Martin, some great future pieces in Lamb, and the Toronto pick, can keep together the rest of their core, and perhaps most importantly, they don't have to deal with the speculation about Harden leaving all season. It's entirely possible that given events with superstar sign and trades in the past, and that Harden isn't a superstar, OKC might've been lucky to deal him for a first round pick this upcoming summer.

That Raptors pick could seriously be a top 3 pick..What if OKC ends up with Noel or Zeller?

That's my main concern. Martin's a hell of a shooter, but he plays a lot like Durant on offense, and he doesn't have the defensive capabilities Harden had. OKC will have some trouble defending the wing this season when Thabo Sefolosha isn't in the game.

Isn't it nice for a team to just do the deal instead of letting it linger all season long ? This tells you OKC wants no distractions. Just focus on getting back to the finals.

Re: OFFICIAL: OKC sends James Harden to Houston for Kevin Martin

If you're serious about winning a title this year it's a big step back. Harden was really their primary playmaker when he was on the court and playmaking is the largest weakness that team has. OKC's team assist and turnover numbers were already way too similar, now they are going to have a big problem in that area. Martin is the opposite of that. Maynor's status becomes a huge deal in my mind. I can't recall what his contract is or whether or not he's going to be good to go. Long term this is a great deal for the Thunder, but when you have Kevin Durant I don't know that you should be looking far down the line.

Sam Presti is laughing at the NBA right now.

OKC has the flexibility to make more moves now.
