Bulls matchup better now. Taj vs Jeff Green. Nice
Bradley will get playing time which is good. C's got some scoring off their bench, which they needed, and I think perk was a little injured again so....maybe that's part of why they traded him. But if the C's aren't healthy come the playoffs....could regret this dearly.
I know it's shocking that Boston would move Perkins mid season... but getting Jeff Green and Nenad Kristic is a good deal. And Perkins is exactly what OKC needed as well.
isnt green a RFA this offseason? Really, I dont like it. Kristic is not great and now they have a limited frontcourt (perhaps perks knee was worse than it has been made out to be?). Are they really going to sign green long term this offseason? Nate was also a little sparkplug for them. Boston just hurt their title chances this year IMO.
Green is the best play in the trade IMO but he doesn't really do much to help Boston. Nate was also huge off the bench @ the playoffs last year -- hit a lot of big shots -- Boston regressed
OKC also loses a lot offensive power with a Ibaka/Perkins lineup because teams can clog the middle.. Green as a stretch 4 really opened the lanes for Durant/Westbrooke.. If nothing else their going to have to insert a shooter into the SG spot now
