It also makes sense for OKC to go after him given they should be doing everything they can to have a contender now and for the near future.

That's not the reality of it though. That's what YOU think they should do, but Presti has made it very clear with trading Harden for Martin + young assets that he's willing to sacrifice a little something now for a much higher chance of continuing to put good players around the core of the team.

If they give up those two assets Presti is not being consistent. If he was in win now mode, Harden goes nowhere. It's highly highly unlikely that he would now turn around and trade those young, cheap assets and go in win now mode.
