TBH-
Russ harden
Russ Kyrie
IMHO one of these are happening.

Morey avoids harden extension, knows what to expect from russ and gets a huge chunk of change off books. Plus russ can play with bigs.

Westbrook for Harden. Westbrook expires this season, and if they could move Harris to another team that would free up a ton of cap for 2023.

Davis for Irving, but only because Portland and Philadelphia would hang up if we called about a Westbrook trade. The Nets would talk to us.

How low can we get compared to this season with 1 of the best talented scorers in the league? We would only go up.

I've always been a Harden supporter in spite of most here hating him... but he was complete ass this playoffs.

However, I'd trade Russ for him in a second as there is some chance maybe he could be revived for a couple more seasons and he fits better with LeBron.

I'd trade Kyrie for AD also. I get the two way player thing and that Kyrie is unreliable but I just think Kyrie's a better player.

I can't imagine getting Dame for Russ otherwise that might be my first choice.

I don't think Portland would do that.

Please, no James Harden.
Did you watch the series?
Rather keep Westbrook. He’s a way more engaged and aggressive player. Harden was aloof.
No thank you.

IG, if you are a Harden fan, I feel sorry for you.
He sucks.
Really sucks.
To be a scorer is nothing special.
Dude doesn’t care, isn’t engaged and is a prima donna.
The rest of the league has caught up with his shenanigans.
No thanks. Hard pass on that crap.

The most realistic unrealistic trade that I see possibly not happening:

Lakers:
In: Ben Simmons, Gordon Hayward
Out: Russell Westbrook, Talen Horton-Tucker, 2023 2nd Rounder
Why? Russell just didn't fit. Klutch has planned for Ben on the Lakers all along

Nets:
In: Terry Rozier, Talen Horton-Tucker, 2022 2nd Rounder, 2023 2nd Rounder
Out: Ben Simmons
Why? Ben isn't going to play a game for the Nets. And no team will trade for him because he'll only play for the Lakers

Hornets:
In: Russell Westbrook
Out: Terry Rozier, Gordon Hayward, 2022 2nd Rounder
Why? To get out of that gross Hayward contract. And Jordan brand Russ is so good

Then part 2

Clippers:
In: Kyrie Irving, Joe Harris
Out: Paul George, Nicolas Batum
Why? Kyrie + Kawhi + Ballmer are personalities that deserve each other.

Nets:
In: Nicolas Batum, Paul George
Out: Kyrie Irving, Joe Harris
Why? PG and KD. Sounds good.

At this point, how about just anyone with an actual vision?

Irving can't stand Lebron. Doubt that is realistic.

Yea Balmer is really maximizing those billions with the Clippers. Those stupid faces he makes on the sidelines is great too.

The scary thing is.. Kurt and Linda are probably a package with Jeanie.. so wherever one goes, the other goes too which means we are stuck with them unless the team gets sold

Harden can space the floor and efficiently run an offense. That’s the opposite of Westbrook. Harden would be a huge upgrade.

Most def. Much better fit. No one will sag him. Spacing will be much better provided we have a couple of defensive wings that can shoot.
