Chemistry-wise I wonder if this wouldn't have been a good fit though for both squads....

OKC rids themselves of a selfish PG who was taking away shots from KD and gets the ultimate distributor and another killer defender. They also get Green back who worked very well with KD and who's scoring role would increase without Westbrook there.

BOS gets the dynamic scorer that they're apparently looking for to take some pressure of Pierce and gets back Perkins... who they sorely missed.

Not a crazy deal by any means IMO.
