Harden & Perkins for Nash & Gortat?
Should the Thunder go after free agent Steve Nash?
Now this would be special, wouldn't it? Can you imagine the league-wide terror of trying to stop the pairing of Nash and the league's top scorer in the halfcourt? Or how about Nash, Durant and Westbrook in the open court? Since the Thunder are capped out, that's just a pipedream, right?
It isn't and here's why: the Thunder could flip Harden (an Arizona State product, remember) to Phoenix in a sign-and-trade deal for Nash and Marcin Gortat. The Thunder have the contracts to make the money work (Kendrick Perkins and Daequan could be thrown in) and the Suns could get their young stud of the future without letting Nash go for nothing.
Would OKC consider this?
