OKC, How has this not been done?

I'm aware that this has probably been brought up many times before, but I want to see others opinions for myself. If I'm either team I do this in a heartbeat.

OKC gets: Dwight Howard

ORL gets: Serge Ibaka, James Harden

Obviously other pieces would need to be added to balance salaries, but you understand the gist of the deal. Am I crazy?

Orlando wants more, also

Orlando wants more, also Harden would definitely have to commit to a long term contract which I doubt he will do in Orlando.

Kendall Marshall – The

Kendall Marshall – The Phoenix Suns guard had a difficult night against the D-League Select team, scoring 10 points on just 4-14 shooting (missing all five three-point attempts). Marshall had six assists but also three turnovers. Arguably the D-League players have more experience and Marshall is just getting his feet wet but he still doesn’t look comfortable on the floor (something he would admit postgame). Fortunately for Kendall, the Suns just inked Goran Dragic to start so that Marshall isn’t asked to do too much too soon.

Festus Ezeli - Golden State

Festus Ezeli - Golden State Warriors first-round pick (30th) Festus Ezeli had a tough game, going scoreless in 16 minutes. He missed all four shots, pulled in just two boards while turning the ball over three times and committing four fouls. On the positive side, Ezeli had three blocks in brief minutes and on the Warriors, he’ll be asked to come in behind Andrew Bogut to provide defense and toughness off the bench. As a primary big, Ezeli didn’t look up to the task on Friday.

HOOPSWORLD recently

HOOPSWORLD recently overhauled the trade history page, which dates back to 2006. As it was being updated, some trades that included future draft picks at the time turned out to be surprisingly significant based on who was drafted. With that in mind we decided to breakdown some of the more interesting players who were selected with picks that originally belonged to other teams.

Omer Asik – Pick originally

Omer Asik – Pick originally owned by the New York Knicks
In 2007 the Knicks and Portland Trail Blazers completed a monster deal that featured Zach Randolph going to the Big Apple with Steve Francis, who was almost immediately bought out, going to Portland. The swap also included a 2009 second-round pick of the Knicks going to Portland as well.

The 2008 first rounder turned

The 2008 first rounder turned into Ibaka, one of the league’s rising stars at the power forward position. Ibaka fits the mold perfectly for the Suns’ style of basketball. Even though his best years would have come after Nash’s prime, he still would have been a great piece to have a rebuild with. To lose him for nothing stings.

To completely write this

To completely write this Dallas Mavericks team off would be a mistake.

The only problem in all this

The only problem in all this is that two heavy hitters – Bogut and Curry – have had serious problems remaining healthy and staying on the court over the course of their careers. In that respect, Golden State has done a good job fortifying their roster to be two-deep at every position as reserves Carl Landry, Andris Biedrins, Richard Jefferson, Brandon Rush and Jarrett Jack have all been starters in this league.

The regular season hasn’t

The regular season hasn’t even started yet and we have already gotten a ton of great quotes from some of the NBA’s finest.

Lakers coach Mike Brown has

Lakers coach Mike Brown has absolutely no interest in the Lakers' preseason record, but World Peace and Gasol acknowledged they would prefer to start winning a few games. The players competing for jobs on Los Angeles' bench again struggled to score consistently, but Brown saw no particular importance in it.

Parallels could be drawn

Parallels could be drawn between this season and Aldridge's rookie year in 2006, when the team was trying to crawl out of the Jail Blazers era when it was known for its off-court trouble. But the 6-foot-11 power forward says there's a difference this season.

In the NBA, the offseason is

In the NBA, the offseason is very often a time of change. Most teams keep their core together, making tweaks here and there. Some teams make huge, roster-shattering trades. Few teams, however, make the sweeping changes that we’ve seen from the Houston Rockets heading into the 2012-13 NBA season. One of the few returning Rockets is forward Patrick Patterson, and he tells HOOPSWORLD that getting names and faces down has been a challenge from the start of training camp.
