Big Friendly Sports: The Athletic’s Andrew Schlecht joins me today to talk about any glaring issues OKC has that it can’t fix from within and who some trade targets could be.
Trades are fun to talk about and think about. But in reality, teams don’t make trades just for fun. What issues do the Thunder have that can only be addressed via a trade? And who could some of the trade targets be? We discuss that and more with Andrew Schlecht from Down to Dunk and The Athletic.
(9:44) Why Brooklyn Nets small forward Cameron Johnson is “the pie in the sky player.”
(18:24) Why the Jazz may have played Kelly Olynk out of trade consideration.
(19:04) Why Gordon Hayward, even with his age and health, is a good low-risk target for OKC. Plus what it would cost the Thunder. “What about paying $6 million for the chance to have Gordon Hayward on our team for the rest of the year?”
