    Robert Swift, Mitch McGary, Deandre Liggins... oh, wait.

    To be fair about McGary, the Thunder drafted him, as well as Swift with the Sonics. I'm thinking more of acquiring people on the cheap to eventually have them get larger deals.

    The Liggins thing is a good point though. He, uh, didn't exactly rehab his image/play. And Markieff Morris seemed more "meh" than anything, so it's not exactly a 100% success rate.

    I was just kidding and pointing out some problematic guys, but with the exception of Reggie Jackson during his last season, I don't remember the Thunder having any guys that constituted a locker room problem.

    Yeah, I gotcha! And yeah, I think Jackson is the only player the Thunder have had where he was obviously disgruntled.

    Also, I know Melo isn't exactly beloved here, but everything I've read/heard about him says he was really well-liked in the locker room and only voiced his frustrations with playing time AFTER the season during exit interviews. He never badmouthed the organization/fans/city, even opting to waive his no-trade clause to come here and was willing to be traded to Atlanta to get us Schroder.

    OKC has been fortunate to not have any super ugly locker room issues in its short history.

    I've never understood any negativity towards Melo. By all accounts, he was a great locker room guy whom the front office, coaches, and fans all wanted. It always felt dirty to see everyone turn on him personally (e.g., he's selfish) as his game deteriorated. Anyway, I think a lot of Thunder fans do like Melo too though.

    NBA Player Salaries - 2019-2020

    Steven Adams, Oklahoma City $24,157,303
    Kevin Love, Cleveland Cavaliers $24,119,025

    An even trade for Kevin Love would be nice; Love IMO is a walking injury report.

    You bet.

    Adams IMO we are paying to much for his services. Nerlens Noel is going to test the free market. Small ball may be our best option; Donovan IMO is ill prepared to make that transition.

    Presti's buns will get toasted on the hot seat; if the Thunder doesn't show any2019-20 improvement.

    Totally. This trade also doesn't pass the smell test. There's no question OKC is trying to shave money off it's tax bill and this would add to it. Love is making $29, 31, 31, 29 million the next four years.

    That really hurts, I had really became a fan of his. I knew his days were numbered here in OKC, he was way too talented. but I thought one of the national networks would steal him away not a lateral move to NO.

    Think he is gonna take a position similar to our Michael Cage so it's a step up. I really don't think the Thunder Brass would want someone with an opinion like his doing color on Thunder games. He's a straight shooter unlike Cage the YES MAN. I really wish AD was the Thunder color man.

    not sure i would call it a lateral move. NO is actually going to be fun to watch next year.

    Sports radio indicated he wants to get into coaching and that avenue was closed here.

    Al said he was totally speculating about that. He said he had no facts...just Alís logic...and we know how that goes. 😂

    I don’t think anyone has reported Noel is NOT coming back to OKC yet, but just that reported deal is being “re-evaluated.” Coming back to OKC will be a failure for Noel financially. He is definitely looking for a bigger offer than OKC can make, but we’ll see if he gets it.

    He's obviously having second thoughts Dan.



    Nerlens Noel backing out of deal with Thunder? https://www.aseaofblue.com/2019/7/1/...ee-agency-2019

    Players want to be able to negotiate to the maximum what they can get. He (Nerlens Noel) appears to still be undecided or some team has approached him recently wanting to talk.
