I'm not saying that there is a Durant in this scenario, just that -- if we are attempting to follow the OKC model (which it appears is the case) -- this is exactly how they built themselves into a contender.

Now, they got lucky by falling into the No. 2 spot in a year with Durant in the draft and Portland taking Oden first. Luck plays a big role in this thing... But, that is the case with anything in sports.

All you can do is put yourself in the best possible position to rebuild a franchise and I think that keeping the three picks does it more than trading 4 and 8 for 2.

That said, I'm certainly not completely against bringing in Irving and Williams... That would make for a pretty exciting 2012 season.
