Can Westbrook be had???

Postby vino92 » July 5, 2016, 8:29 am

Would a trade of Rose expiring contract plus our draft pick be enough to get Westbrook?? And would we do it I say YES or do we wait till next year when he becomes a free agent but then have to compete with LA??

Oh if it were that easy. Try at a minimum Porzingis and the pick and then maybe you could add in Rose.

... only at a great price. sam presti doesn't just give away talent and especially with durant leaving as a ufa, he will not make the same mistake twice. anyone that wants westy will have to pay dearly.

Well there is also a catch to this too...........Presti is also trying to avoid the "Carmelo scenario" with Westbrook entering into the upcoming season as well, so he will be pressured into an "unofficial deadline" to trade Westbrook to a team before next season starts.

So Presti might "lose leverage" in trade negotiations if he isn't willing to put himself into a "Carmelo scenario" for all of next season.

Actually I don't think Westbrook is going anywhere. I think the Thunder are gonna take a step back but still be competetive this year while the Thunder pretend to be taking things under consideration. I think Westbrook will indeed test free agency only to return along with a newly signed Blake Griffin and a new dynamic duo will be born, with plenty of nice side pieces around then.

I see this as the most likely chance as well.........but the decision will go down to the last minute before OKC management decides, "Ok Russ, you can stay for the season." But you darn well know that OKC management will be exploring every single trade scenario for Westbrook 24/7 until that time comes.

Bottom line: If Westbrook is coming here, it needs to be next summer where we outright sign him rather than give up valuable commodities just to have him here a few months earlier. See the Melo trade.

Yes, Westbrook can be had if:

1. Knicks make the playoffs;
2. Get to the ECF; or
3. Get to 2nd round but lose in game 7.

We must impress Westbrook so that he may at least consider us in next offseason.
