Which 2010 FA
would be the best fit for the OKC Thunder?
i dont know if they should get that much in free agency because their hole is center and there arent many next year. best thing would be to trade for someone like Gortat, or Prybilla.
First things first i can see your an OKC fan
2nd thing is OKC is pretty good at the PG SF position i say they can upgrade at the SG Position but with james harden just landing i think he can do some dirt.......also Jeff green is a great assest to their team but not that dominating big man, i see him best as great sixth man. The C position is lacking but you can say that as well with half the other teams in the League.
I would say Carlos Boozer but if they really wanted to think better i would try to approach Dirk Nowitzki with full force.......there is not much of a chance with dirk loving dallas, but if this year flops i think their rebuilding stage begins right away
I think OKC's biggest problems are at PF or C, so trying to sign someone like Amare or Boozer might be a good idea but then again, I see that there are alot of PF/C 's in next years draft. The Thunder might want to take a chance in the draft and save some money.
it would be the right move to go after dirk.. they already have one of the best scorers in the league in durant.. they would rather have a player to complement him, and i like boozer for that role. or even amare.. theyre def not looking for ppl to challenge durant for shots
Boozer would not be a bad fit skill wise but he would demand too much and I think what OKC is doing is smart. Also Mullens will be a solid enough Center down the road that they can wait. Also DJ White and that one foreign dude are pretty solid. OKC is young but very Promising. They may actually have too much young talent. That is how the early Portland trailblazer were and now look at them. They have one the most athletic and young and talented teams. They just need to be healthy and gain chemistry.
i agree their talented like the blazers but i disagree with Mullens being good. he gets the Deandre Jordan comparisons because he had an off year and fell in the rankings difference. the reason Jordan did so good is because of work ethic this guy has a monster work ethic and i don't think Mullens has that attribute. while Oden is a staple at center for the Traillazers he proved if he stays on the court hell put up pretty good numbers.
Bosh...he looks like all the other skinny lengthy cats
Its a toss up, it depends on how harden mullens and ibaka play, if they play excellent i see them going strickly for a power forward like amare of bosh, if they play below level i say theyll draft a pf in a big man class, presti is resiting long term contracts right now because he knows all the mony is going to durant westbrook and possible green
I read on hoopshype they are trying to trade for Gortat this year, I think that is a good move. and if Kristic gets back to 100 % he is a promising PF when he was with the Nets. then that will pay of and they will be a year or 2 away from competing in the loaded west. With that said Amari and Bosh would want to be the focal point on offense so that wont work with Durant their Bozer will be a better fit.
IF LaMarcus Aldridge doesn't sign an extension, he should be the first on their list... this is unlikely to happen though.
resigning their promising young stars should be their first priority but a second tier fa could help them. rip hamilton or michael redd could provide some veteran leadership, a center may be needed depending on krstics health and mullens developement
no big names, they dont need to spend big money on a FA... keep the team as is and pay the players that are on the roster now.. when that time comes u dont want a ton of money invested into a guy like dirk.
