Why does anyone like this trade? Outlaw is an average underachiever. James Johnson turning into a journeyman and doesnt add that much. Wroten is an okay prospect but nothing special. I know this gets us rid of Diop, but why not just wait and amnesty him next year.
Also lets not forget about Perkins, OKC were happier to get rid of Harden than trade or Amnesty Perks. He is massive to that team in more ways than numbers, he has taught the team toughness and togetherness. There would be a lockeroom revolt if he was simply traded away for a headcase like Cousins.
On other news, anyone see the Kings being interested in a simple swap of Henderson for T- Robinson?
They have Thompson locked up long term and don't really have a strong defensive 2 guard- I am not sure how much the Kings like Robinson with his below average start to the season.
