    Default Thunder might trade James Harden tomorrow

    http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/81...lked-moving-up

    I am not a Thunder fan but I think it would be a good move since James sucked in the Finals

    First, this is not happening. I guarantee it. Second, you don't dump a top 5 SG for an overhyped and unproven college player because a player had one bad series. Harden is an all-star level player. Beal didn't even score 15 ppg on a mediocre college team.

    Rumors like this come up every year, and I promise you, this is not happening. This is more likely diversion by Presti to raise Beal's value and go after someone else.

    Highly unlikely. Seems like a lot of heresy. I take Presti as smarter than to gamble on an unproven player coming out the draft.

    As far as Presti closely observing Beal, seems like a GM just doing some due diligence and keeping his options open.

    The simple fact that Beal went to ESPN and blabbed about this whole thing is headscratching in of itself.

    This team was a few bad fouls and missed free throws away from winning it all. I don't see them messing with anything until they absolutely have to with the luxury tax.

    Without Harden the Thunder might not of made the Finals. LeBron sucked in the Finals last year, so if you're going by that logic, I guess Miami should of traded him after that.

    Not really. If the most respected GM in the league likes you then that raises your value... Good strategy bi Beal.

    Without Harden there is zero chance we make the finals. He was amazing in the Spus series.

    Not to mention the game against the Mavs where he went one on one for the entire 4th quarter!

    I wouldn't take anyone in the league over the Beard. I will trade in all of my Thunder gear and wipe my memory of Thunder games if that happens. Luckily, I just don't see Presti doing that. He took a chance on Harden already and it paid off huge, just as it did with Westbrook. Harden is part of the team and civic culture..

    I do not believe that, if James is traded and Beal is drafted and Beal had a amazing year and lead the Thunder to the Finals winning the championship, you would be buying Beal's jersey and you will be saying James who?

    Of course, but Beal won't do that. He's overrated, and he'll be a rookie. Very few rookies have ever had the season Harden had last year. It took Harden 3 years to progress to this point. I just don't think Beal has a ceiling like that...

    An oddly large percentage of your recent posts are related to the Thunder and how you feel Harden should be traded and Brooks should be fired.

    Even high draft picks only get you a player that is worth the hype like 25% of the time, if this was next year and they were not going to resign Harden it might be more plausible but most all of this sounds like it is media speculating on chatter coming from Beal to keep his name in circulation before the draft.

    I'm just pointing it out.

    I could see Daequan Cook and the 28 pick being traded for Beal....they both play the 2 and both are 3 point specialists.

    Dude, no one is taking cook and our 28th pick for Beal, who might go as high as the 2nd pick. We will have to give up a something more if we wanted the 2nd or 3rd pick.

    Just because it came out in the media doesn't mean it will happen. Those of you that remember the 2009 draft will remember the phrase, "Spanish Law Firm." Everyone was sure that we were drafting Rubio because a report came out that Presti was consulting with a Spanish law firm for a buyout for Rubio. That's when we drafted the Beard.

    That said, nothing would surprise. Presti knows what he wants to do and will do it.

    As it has already been said Presti is not going to give up anything, especially one of our big 4, to move up in the draft. MonkeesFan just likes to try and stir up Thunderland.

  23. Default Re: Thunder might trade James Harden tomorrow

    just because you fear the beard, doesn't mean you have to get rid of it.

    right after that we should trade cole and next years pick for davis ..... they both play inside ..

    We can't afford to keep Ibaka and Harden, period. By trading one of them for #2 pick, will free up some cap space, to give either Ibaka/Harden a max deal, and lock them in for 4-5 years. Because Beal's rookie contract will be really small, and will last 3 years. I wouldn't be surprised if Harden is traded tonight. Then Beal will probably fill his shoes, coming off the bench, they both play the same positions, doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what is about to happen.
