Thunder have pieces to make push for Raptors' Bosh

Quote:
Kevin Durant and Chris Bosh on the Thunder frontline together. By Feb. 18? Why not?

Oklahoma City is loaded. With talent. With picks. With cash. When pondering future seasons of a Thunder program that starts but doesn't end with Durant, visions surface of a serious Western Conference contender.
But why can't it be this season? Isn't this franchise in position to make a major move in a conference that has more of its share of quality teams though none, outside of the defending champion Lakers, are overwhelming.
OKC is hanging in the playoff race and has beaten plenty of big boys with a college-age roster. Imagine that roster with Bosh or Joe Johnson or Dwyane Wade right now. (We're realistic enough not to throw LeBron James in the mix.) As far-fetched as it sounds, the Thunder own the assets to make a deal like Bosh work before the trade deadline next month.
If the Raptors felt compelled to move Bosh, and there are plenty of rumors out there to support such a notion, Oklahoma City general manager Sam Presti could make a serious play for the lefty power forward. Not only is OKC comfortably under the salary cap, but the franchise has another two first-round draft choices this June and nice pieces to export across the border.
Would a deal of, say, ever-improving third-year forward Jeff Green, a pair of No. 1s and another youngster with potential, Serge Ibaka or D.J. White, interest Toronto? If Raptors general manager Bryan Colangelo was certain Bosh was walking this summer, does such a package from OKC make sense?
Thunder players would certainly welcome a player the caliber of Bosh. Bringing in a three-time 25-year-old All-Star who has averaged 20 and nine for his career may accelerate the Thunder's contending process by a year or two.
Would there be a better set of forwards in the West now and five years from now than Durant and Bosh?

To be honust that would be a really good thunder team, but there is no way in hell we are giving up bosh!

Durant, Harden, Green and 1st rounders.

That's it, nothing less.

The premise of the article is that they add Bosh without destroying their current lineup.

Bosh

for

Sefolosha/Westbrook/Green/filler + Pick


The only issue is that OKC don't really have any big salaries (highest being Collison @ 6.2Mil) so they'd have to include quite a few players.

okc is way under the ca p, so they don't have to trade matching salaries.

I'd want Green, Harden, Ibaka..But I don't see the Thunder risking their future like this.

not way as you put it, if that's what you honestly think you know nothing about basketball. He may be slightly better or Bosh may be but the only players that are way better are Lebron and Kobe

Ahhh, Durant just turned 21 a few months ago. I'm sure the Thunder would entertain trading him for Bosh

Really...

The guy is 21 years old.

He's averaging 29 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists, 1.5 steals and a block.

He will be talked about as one of the best players of all time once everything is said and done. He's a top 5 player in the league, no question.

It's like having a Dwyane Wade in the body of a Chris Bosh.

No thank you. The whole team is playing good and if this continues I am certain Bosh will come back. No point in mixing it up now

Only package that would make sense for us would be some combination of Harden + Green + filler. Otherwise it's a big downgrade.

Durant may be a superstar, but Bosh already is one.
