Maybe now is the time to pounce.
The Thunder appropriately wrapped up the 1st half of the season with an impressive road win Monday at Atlanta. The 23 wins at halftime equals their entire win total from a year ago. I have been under the opinion that Sam Presti wouldn't make a big move in free agency or in a trade until his young team was a contender. And I assumed that would be two or three or four years down the line.
But maybe that is now! There is wide-spread speculation that Oklahoma City is interested in three-time All-Star, 25-year-old Raptors star Chris Bosh (see article below). Could a front-line of Bosh and Durant make a run to the Western Conference Finals? Maybe. Maybe NOW is the time to strike. Plus, with Bosh you would still be young.
In Sam I trust!
