its really a risk. what if we trade griffin and we see he is a beast. what if we decline the trade offer and find out that griffin will be a bust. im sure the management knows what they are doing on this one.

I have a feeling Durant will be traded before his contract is up, but it won't be now. He has unbelievable trade value, teams would give up an arm and a leg for him

my god id do that in a HEARTBEAT. the NBA knows durant is a sure thing, griffin's a sure thing in a weak draft.

trade the #1 and thornton for durant and OKC's pick. draft rubio. (and if we could somehow trade zach, pick up bosh next offseason)

Durant looks like he is going to be one of the greatest players of all time. I do not see OKC making this move.

A great trade. Where does Boom Fizzle go? Rookie 1/3 rule (For him 1/2 to 2/3 but not a sure thing) Ain't gonna happen

like griffin said yesterday on espn ...you never know!!

OKC might want to do a lebron james ackron /Griffin OKC kinda thing

i think OKC is stupid enough to do something like this......they are still very young not going anywhere type team

but why it would never happen..........years dont match up....it would have to be a sign and trade which D.rant would never do:(

Ive been all for Griffin, and I am sure he we do well in the NBA, maybe become a perennial all-star.

However if OKC said hey, we'll give you Kevin Durant for the #1 pick I'd do it in a heartbeat. Would we be a better team? Yeah I think so with either play. Durant would be in a giant market, and would probably stay with the team, why? Bonuses from endorsement companies, and with Kobe getting up there in age and will soon be sowing up to games with less skill, Durant can take over the LA spotlight and help pull the Clippers into the national spotlight.

Durant would be our go to guy, without him OKC wprobably wouldnt have won a single game last year.

i dont even want their pick i would give em our #1 pick, thornton, minnys future first rounder, and like 2 more first round draft picks for the 2010 draft and 2011 draft for durant. it would be well worth it, cause durants gonna be averaging like 35 ppg by his 4th season.

As much as I like Thornton, I would do your deal in a second! Rubio & Durant in the same year? fuggedaboutit!

I like this trade too. Thats a HUGE draft night for us.

I dont think OKC wants Thorton in this deal though. If they ever do trade away Durant, I think they move Jeff Green to the SF spot instead of looking for another replacement. I would think from the Thunders point of view, a package around the #1 and Kaman is more attractive.

I'm not so sure about that, when some are calling him a more athletic Karl Malone...

I think Blake Griffin has a fair chance to become the best power forward in the game in a few years. I think he can become a 1st team All NBA type of player. I love Durant and a trade offer like that would be hard to turn down, but I think you're underestimating Blake's potential. Perhaps I am overestimating him a bit, but time will tell.

Kevin Durant, DJ White, and #3 for #1, Thornton, etc. would be pretty sweet.
