    Unless Westbrook says "I want to leave and go to the Raptors", there's no way he ends up here via trade. He's a superstar, and you don't trade those if they don't ask to leave. Plus, even if he just said he wanted to leave, there are other teams that would be way more attractive both to him and to OKC, like Boston and it's infinite number of draft picks.

    I think his reasoning behind the trade was that he think Wesrbrook is definitely gonna leave OKC because he and the new coach would not work well together, so he figured OKC would want to see something/anything in return for Westbrook instead of him walking away in free agency with them having nothing to show for it. The problem here though, is the fact Westbrook would be a one season rental, with no guarantee of resigning.
    The Dr also suggested a few other moves that he thought would turn the team into a 60 win team (the game in the podcast was to put yourself in Masais shoes and make a maximum of 6 moves to make a 50 win team that would win a playoff round). Here's what he suggested:

    Sign vets that love Casey, gives leadership the team needs
    Sign Jason terry, 5.5 mill
    Sign Tyson chandler,
    Sign Luis Scola, 5.5 mill
    Sign Middleton, 10 mill
    Draft Harrel or Looney ( bigs that can bang on glass and develop)
    Keep Casey, let all other free agents walk

    Out: Lowry, Ross, 2016 NYK pick, 2016 TOR pick
    In: Westbrook

    Westbrook/GV
    DeRozan/Terry
    Middleton/JJ/Bruno
    Scola/PP/ Harrel or Looney
    JV/ Chandler

    Was this the Dr from the podcast?



    Cause that's one of the stupidest trade ideas I've ever heard of.

    Absolutely no way OKC even thinks about taking that deal

    Westbrook was a top 5 player this year

    started a topic Lowry- Westbrook

    Lowry- Westbrook

    So i just listened to the "Dr is in" podcast and they proposed a very interesting trade for Westbrook. I was just wondering what the rest of RR thinks of the deal. Personally I think if we can get this done then I would do it in a heartbeat but in all reality I have a feeling there is no way it will happen.
    The Deal

    To OKC
    Lowry
    TRoss
    NYK/Denver pick
    Raptors 1st round pick 2016

    To Raptors
    Westbrook
