Tor - okc
According to a source, Calderon is looking to be traded. At the deadline
Toronto send DeRozan, Calderon, Davis, 2012 2nd rounder
OKC send Harden, Perry Jones, Andy Rautins
Why Raps: The price of this trade is getting Harden who will become a FA this summer so we can resign him or use him as a trade bait but with the players we have, Harden might wanna resign with us and we have the caps to do so. P.Jones is a project but until midseason, we will see how much of a project this player needs to develop, I think he could be our SF of the future even though he's more suited at the 4, a power 3 and stretch 4, a player he is. Andy Rautins is just a filler beside he's the son of Leo Rautins so might get some props from the fans lol.
Why Thunder: Calderon is a great backup behind Westbrook whereas DeRozan gets to play one of the best players in NBA in Durant. DeRozan is exactly what the Thunder ask for, a slicing SG who can defend and compete with bigger SG in the Western Conference. Davis will be able to start for the team at the PF spot while pushing Ibaka at the 5 spot.
I'm not even gonna bother with why the trade is stupid, but I will say that this trade doesn't even work...
That and Calderon just said he didn't want to be traded and he was upset that's all people are talking about. I question your sources..... And your trades...
HAHA! He said Demar could defend!
In their games, 2K Sports and EA Sports need to urgently make TRADES and FA SIGNINGS the most realistic part of the game. This is getting out of hand...
Talent wise this Trade, barring some parts, is not totally unrealistic. It would be impossible to do it at the Trade deadline as salaries don't match at all. NBA rules would prevent it. However, if Harden and OKC can't agree on a deal at the end of the season, a sign and Trade involving the players mentioned, minus Calderon(FA) and Perry Jones(untried Rookie) and maybe a future 1st rounder going to OKC could be done.
That I thing might work for both sides (although IMO OKC would want even more for Harden)
