    Default IND/OKC/NOL

    http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMa...radeId=3n3smzl

    Ok, I've been pondering a deal like this for some time, and this is just a start, but I like the idea of a Granger-Westbrook-CP3 deal. Obviously Granger is the weakest of those players, but if CP3 wants to play for a title contender, and the Thunder want to a "true PG", this could have some potential.

    Pacers
    Out: Granger, Hansbrough, Rush, #15, future picks
    In: Nate Robinson, R. Westbrook

    We get Westbrook, our "superstar", but let him play the 2 next to Collison. We also get a solid back-up PG in Robinson

    Thunder
    Out: Westbrook, Robinson, Sefolosha, Aldrich
    In: CP3, Brandon Rush, #15, future picks (from IND and NOL)

    Get a "true PG" and arguably the best at his position, as well as some shooting help in Rush, and future picks.

    Hornets
    Out: CP3, future picks
    In: Granger, Hansbrough, Sefolosha, and Cole Aldrich

    Great talent in return for the player that might otherwise walk. Solid veteran in DG as well as promising young bigs to learn under West and Okafor.


    I feel that this truly helps all 3 teams,
    Thoughts?

    Don't really care for the trade at all. Our backcourt would be very small.

    Also, your title says Atlanta. You should change that to OKC.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    It worked at UCLA, and if it doesn't end up working out, we can jus move Westbrook back to the 1, or look for a bigger PG. We need a true allstar player, and if we could do that w/o losing young talent, I'd take that all day

    I don't like this because it makes us tiny in the backcourt.

    I actually think this is a great trade and if for some reason Westbrook didn't end up doing well or just didn't want to play for us then we could always use him for bait to bring in that go to guy we've all been waiting for.

    How Pacers get Westbrook and Harden and they can send Nate somewhere else....not here. And drop the future draft picks from Pacers. Then, I'll go for that.

    So, the thunder get an upgrade at PG, an upgrade at the bench, and still get all the draft picks in this trade? I think the draft picks would go to NO.

    I love it....The one player i have wanted was Westbrook. Aside from pacers players he is my favorite in the NBA. I think its a good trade, but Id like him to run point and not play the 2. Keep in mind we will have money to spend so we could pick up JR smith to play the 2. We have George to play the 3 we still have money so we pick up NeNe. Starting like up of: Hibbert, NeNe(we would be huge) George, JR. Smith and Russel Westbrook. Idk how our bench would shape up, we would Def have a legit backup PG in DC...

    Yea, my suggestion (if this trade were to go down) would be to play him at the 2 with DC to start, and if its not working, move either one of them at the trade deadline because they will be easy to trade
