and lets look at another candidate we should consider in Kendrick Perkins...Harden said he wants to talk extension, which means Perkins or Ibaka is unofficially on the trade block. Both would be a perfect fit for Lopez because they can be the man in the paint and rebounds too...this is only if dwight howard trade doesnt work out, which it probably wont, but im not jinxing it.
Here is the Plan:
I am gonna guess that Harden is going to get 5 years 75 million
S&T Hump(6Mil?), Morrow(expiring), Petro(expiring) for Perkins, Cook(expiring) and Cole Aldrich(team option next season)
Why OKC would do this:
Save around 8 million after this season to resign Ibaka, get shooters in Morrow and a solid back up in Hump or can be starter to if injury happens and Petro just cuz we dont want him.
Why Nets would do this:
We get a strong defender, someone who can rebound and give hard hits and someone who can man the paint. Sure, this means that lopez has to play the 4 and i think he would be able to, not to mention is a 7'0'' so he wuld have the height advantage n the strength. It also seemed like he has gotten quicker with his feet so i think he can play the 4.
lol if u guys disagree, ur welcome too but this is just for those people who want to forget temporarily about all this dwight threads popping up and think of what we would be if we have like a perkins in the paint...i think we should play zone if this trade happens that way we have a 7 footer already giving problems to others with his height n Perkins who is known for his defense. :D
