Default Harden to OKC?

Most teams we’ve spoken to in Chicago are indicating that they believe Oklahoma City is indeed leaning towards picking Harden.

A source close to him tells us he feels very good about the possibility of being selected by Oklahoma City or Washington, and for right now is not planning on visiting the Minnesota Timberwolves.

James Harden for example has elected not to conduct any interviews with teams drafting outside the top five, canceling a scheduled interview at the Westin Hotel with the Cleveland Cavaliers for example. He also reportedly will not be conducting any competitive workouts with anyone anywhere in the draft process.

Just look at this team:

PF-DJ White

Harden, Westbrook and Durant will make one helluva trio but this team needs to think about either trading Green for a center or bringing him off of the bench. Maybe they can take Mullens with one of their first round picks or try to find a way to get Chris Kaman.

Default Re: Harden to OKC?

That would be a dumb move by OKC in my opinion. They can't pass on making a solid addition to their frontcourt.
I'd much rather a lineup that looks like this:

PG: Russell Westbrook
SG: Kevin Durant
SF: Jeff Green
PF: Kristic(?)
C: Hasheem Thabeet

..or even this

PG: Russell Westbrook
SG: Kevin Durant
SF: Jeff Green
PF: Jordan Hill
C: Nenad Kristic

Were you honestly under a rock when it was realized that Kevin Durant's natural NBA position is at SF.

Playing him out of position at SG only limits him as seen from last year, and Jeff Green played a solid role at PF for OKC, I'm not convinced hes their long term answer at PF but he fit very well.
