    Actually, he did say it. Not sure if he was joking or not.

    New Orleans hasn't been to the playoffs much. OKC has rarely missed the playoffs in OKC. Will be interesting to see.

    Financially and if they trade for Paul, Exum and minor draft assets does make a ton of sense. Miami could groom Exum behind Paul. If he pans out, what a win for Miami.

    Harden and Westbrook will put up 50-60 shots a game. That’s more than half of the offense. That’s the only problem I see them having. Too much iso, even though Westbrook gets assists.

    I'd rather just roll with Royce and keep what I got in the Exum mystery box.

    I think he was being facetious in the earlier post. No one believes that Paul is getting bought out.

    That would be an absolute steal for us, Winslow is a legit good player today.

    we don't have the cap space to eat up that additional 3.4 million though.

    if we traded Exum + pick for Grant...

    Since we haven't signed Green and Mudiay yet, this trade works. http://tradenba.com/trades/H1Sk2DBbr

    Winslow for Exum and 2nd rounders.

    why would they want to pay for a player who is always in his suit? i'm sure there are more appealing options for them unless we start throwing in first rounder(s)...

    ahhh yeah nah Not this time. C3PO is a smart efficient player. Russ is the exact opposite. this is a great trade for the Jazz

    Maybe so. I'm not sure. What could Winslow fetch out there? Is there a team that could save Miami $3+ million, give back a decent asset (Exum) and minor draft picks?

    I just know he fits us really well. He's a Lamar Odom type of player who can support everything we want to do. Miami AND OKC have to shed some money.

    I still like Exum as a player for us long term. However, the fan base might not feel the same way and Winslow fits more of a need.

    It would be a home run if the FO pull it off. Even more so than the Jerami Grant trade. But unlikely... Since it is Pat Riley that we are dealing with, they will probably just find a way to offload Dragic instead.

    See if the Jazz pick up Tyler Dorsey or Justin Holliday, who both played with Memphis last year. Oni and JWF could both end up on two-way contracts, unless the Jazz prefer Cousins over one of them.

    It would be a HUGE favor to Chris Paul to buy out that mf'ing contract. OKC isn't that financially generous.

    Paul to Miami is complicated. They really don't have to lose an asset to get him. If anything, Miami should be able to dump their worst contracts (Johnson, Waiters) to get Paul. Should be interesting to see how it develops.

    Right. But I think Westbrook could be more efficient in a D'Antoni system and with actual shooters to spread the floor for his athleticism.

    I think people underestimate how much Billy Donovans offense sucks and how much a lack of shooting has hurt both OKC and Westbrook for YEARS because Presti refused to ever address it. He just ignored the problem.
