This is a best writer, if you ask Geoff Petrie you would get a different answer.
Not sure what it would take from us but Im pretty sure we could get Timofey Mozgov.
...Idk what yalls opinion of him is but a 7'1 fluid, coordinated athletic center at a low cost is exactly what this team needs IMO And he seems available pretty cheap. Also Dunlap's freindship with the nuggets may help pull it off?
Presti and Petrie sound very similar. I assume that's the cause of the mix-up.
If you'd asked me, I would say there is no way the Thunder is interested in Sessions. Maynor is a good guard, but the main reason for the Thunder to keep him is that he brings something else to the table than Westbrook does. Westbrook, like so many point guards in the league, is a score-first point guard; he is quick, he can drive through the lane, he has an O.K. shot and doesn't pass the ball as much as he should do (don't let his assist numbers fool you). does this remind you of someone? Maynor fits Oklahoma perfectly; he has the tendency to pass the ball more than Westbrook does, but that's about it.. And to everyone who thinks Ramon's got the edge because of his playoff "experience": Maynor played 11 more playoff games. To even think that Oklahoma would trade Maynor along with two of this years first round draft picks (Lamb and Jones) for just Sessions is crazy talk.
Well lets not confuse ourselves here. Just because Maynor plays for OKC doesn't mean he's good.
He has a career fg% below 40 and a dismal 31.3 this year. He's also not a particularly good shooter from range and plays around 10 minutes a game so it's not like his tendency to pass is going to manifest itself into any real tangible value to the team because he's simply not good enough to be out there long enough to display it.
Sessions is a clearly better PG so that upgrade would be a no brainier. The question comes in with adding guys like Lamb and Jones, which certainly does skew the value back in our favor.
If we offered up something like Sessions and one of the picks we own for Maynor and Lamb, they might consider it. They don't necessarily value developing youth like we do and they still own Toronto's pick (top 3 protected) that could be used on a guy like Marcus Smart.
If they trade Lamb it's going to be for a guy who excels playing off the ball, like a Jason Terry or Avery Bradley, because Westbrook is going to play 40 minutes a night in the playoff and he's always going to be OKC's best guard. They aren't taking the ball out of his hands to give it to Sessions.
Just for the f*ck of it: Byron Mullens shot a career average of 0.340 from the floor (16 of 47) when we acquired him, so that don't have to mean anything. What's more interesting is that Maynor shoots 27% of his shots from 3-point range (230 out of 855), that's a lot compared to Sessions' 8% (256 out of 3,366). That's not only a reason for Maynor's below average shooting percentage, but it also shows that he is confident in his 3-point shot (a career average of 0.348 isn't bad). Also; Maynor gets 10,6 mpg this season, on a team that will contend for the title, as Russell Westbrook's backup. If that doesn't say he's good, I don't know what will.
