Yeah, that's part of the point. Pave the way for Perk to go. Allow some PT for McGary. Give us a low post presence.

So, Jermaine O'neal is available. I'd be interested in seeing him in a Thunder uniform. Poor man's Gasol.
Is this the end of our offseason moves??

@Jooseppi @ThunderWins @[weed wolf faction] @Lacoste baby But what if it comes true this time??? (and the excitement continues)
5 months, 1 week ago on What the Thunder are adding in Anthony Morrow
@Lacoste baby Completely agree with you. Free up Reggie to start. Presti needs to make it happen!
@[weed wolf faction] @Jooseppi The thought of Beasley hanging near McGary scares me...
@[weed wolf faction] @Jooseppi Any where in the east would be fine by me.
@[weed wolf faction] @amuk I'd do it in a heartbeat.
@Legendary_Dork Does that mean he's not leaving the Thunder for more money?
@[weed wolf faction] @amuk I'm officially on the Hinrich band wagon.
@TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard As much as Morrow's shooting excites me, I'm worried about his defense (or lack of). Would much rather let Reggie have the starting job he covets. Hopefully he'll be happy enough to re-sign with us too!
Been mostly a DT reader for the past 2 yrs, but venturing out a thought...
Not sure if its been brought up here already, but what do people think about Kirk Hinrich for the Thunder? We could move RJ into the starting line up, have Hinrich run the second unit.
Starting would be RW/RJ/KD/SI/KP, second unit KH/JL/PJ/NC/SA. Morrow, Mitch, and Roberson serving as extra firepower off the bench sounds like a pretty deep and good team to me.
Ouch, really that bad? Wth the full rotatin we have now, I actually think what we need is an old vet. Not someone that needs to take minutes away from Lamb and Reg, but someone who knows his role and wants to win a Championship.
10 months ago on Heat bloody the Thunder in Westbrook’s return, 103-81
Saw a report saying SAC might be buying Jason Terry out. Seems to me to be a very intriguing fit. Hasn't been close to his former 6th man self, but still has championship experience, can be an extra shooter off the bench when Fish is off, and is familiar with making big time shots. Thoughts?
Yea I like their pick up of Dunleavy. But they had problems scoring in the playoffs even two years ago, when teams would load up on Rose. Deng has gotten better but I'm still not convinced they have enough fire power.
1 year, 2 months ago on Understanding Kevin Durant, the scorer
I would be concerned if we start the season without another pg signed. Hopefully one that can shoot. Fisher is solid but shouldn't be playing extended minutes until later on in the season.
Been looking at random preseason games. The Pacers look really good this year. Wouldn't be too surprised if the Heat don't make it out of the East.
Also, I agree completely with what you say about Roberson. I really like what I see so far this summer.

Perry for Jimmer? To be clear, I'm not one of those Jimmer fanatics, but he's a back up pg who can shoot lights out. He can play off guard with us too because of Russ and Reggie's size, while moving Lamb up to the 3 in a small line up. He was awful in Sac, but with us, I think he can be useful.
Sac is loaded with guards. Jimmer is not in their future plans and they're looking for a SF. We can cut Orton or Gomes to keep us under the tax line.
Cut Orton, trade Perry for Jimmer. We can use Jimmer's shooting and he'd be a good backup guard until Russ comes back.

@Sigmund I'd rather see that fight than the clippers-heat game on now... : )
@ElMexiThunder Couldn't agree with you more.
2 years, 1 month ago on Durant and the Thunder slam the door on Chicago, 97-91
@dollarbillrussell Royce wrote an article before about KMart's so-called low release.
One theory I had with Martin is that because of his low release point, it causes him to have more space than the regular player, meaning he doesn’t have the luxury of forcing fadeaway jumpers in traffic. He needs the space to shoot so by default, he’s almost always taking clean, open shots. Thorpe didn’t really buy that.
“He shoots over guys all the time,” Thorpe said. “Because he’s 6-foot-7.”
@EternalThunder True, that they weren't wide open. I still hope that he grows within the offense to be comfortable taking those shots though. We need him to be a legit scoring threat, even in crunch time.
Completely agree w/ Royce: Those 2 open looks that KMart passed down in the 4Q drove me crazy. He's gotta learn to shoot those in order for us to not be a 2 dimensional team.
@anonymous12345 And he wears a head band : )

We have 2 roster spots available, with help needed on the front line. There is a proven big man that can play defense still available as a free agent in Kenyon Martin. Is there any rumors out there that we are looking to sign the other K-Mart? Will Presti pull the trigger on free agency for a change?
How did any NBA team decide to draft Thabeet 2nd?? I'm excited about Hollis though!
2 years, 2 months ago on Thunder vs. Jazz: Open thread
To me, Cole should be fighting for minutes at the backup 5 against PJIII at the backup 4 (w/ Collison at the 5).
2 years, 2 months ago on Practice Report: Eyes on Aldrich
How does this affect the selection of the 15th spot on the roster? I really like Hollis so I hope this doesn't take away his spot by adding an extra big that can't really play (ie. Orton).
2 years, 2 months ago on Kendrick Perkins to miss entire preseason
@Lafowler255 @kennygee90 From what I can hear, Russ is by far the better teammate. And that's the team culture I'd want my team to have. So, I'd take Russ without question.
Being fourth best on a team doesn't sound so shabby when the guys ahead of you are KD, Russ and Harden.
Its great to be a Thunder fan.

@FREE_COLE Hahaha. Thats too bad, cuz I don't really know how to change it on this thing... (not saying that I would, but anyways)
@FREE_COLE There is no way I would have Parker lower than Rondo. Parker is basically a better version of Rondo.
@goodwillhunting @DSYIII Except of course for PJ3. I'm hoping for great things from PJ3.

@f5alcon @Arent Is Perk really that bad? He plays solid 1on1 D against any center (not just Dwight). He's a solid part of our foundation, even without any offense.
2 years, 3 months ago on DT Mailbag: Future sacrifices?
@OBoymuzik Well, I feel stupid for having missed that. Thanks for correcting me. Still think we're missing a piece who can score off the bench and take some burden off of Harden though.
2 years, 4 months ago on 3-on-3: Threatened
I think we should try to trade either DQ or Hayward for a draft pick and cash. Then go after Grant Hill for cheap. Grant Hill's game making skills, team defense ability, and locker room presence will make him a perfect fit on our team. Bottom line, Grant Hill makes the teams he plays for better. He makes the Thunder better by allowing even more flexibility in our rotation. Remember what happened after we didn't go after Battier last year and the Heat got him. Battier made the Heat complete. I don't want Hill to end up with someone like the Lakers and be their last piece, when we could've tried to go after him ourselves.
