When we think of teams going after big-name free agents this summer, thoughts usually turn to New York, New Jersey, Chicago and Miami.
But what about Oklahoma City? With the likes of Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Jeff Green and James Harden and a 12-10 record, they're looking a lot better on paper right now than any of the aforementioned teams. And as ESPN's Jalen Rose notes, they could be a force with the addition of a big man that draws double teams.
"If the Thunder can get a Chris Bosh or Amare Stoudemire-type player, they will be contenders in the West," he writes. "They need a power forward who can draw double-teams, defend the post and rebound his position."
Remember this, too: the Thunder have the projected cap space to sign a Bosh or Stoudemire. If neither minds playing in a smaller market with a younger team, the Thunder's talent and skill level -- and possible playoff appearance this spring -- might be an attractive sell.
