OKC will be a 6-8 seed in that conference and wallow in mediocrity for years even if he stayed. They should rebuild. The bigger question is should Ainge take the risk. If I was as confident as Grin he would re-sign, it seems like a no-brainer. A top 5 NBA player (borderline) at a max deal has far greater value than a top 5 pick, and that squad would instantly compete with Cleveland.I think it means they'd have pieces to trade that would be attractive to OKC. Why would OKC trade him though? They would go from title contenders to a borderline lottery team if they lose both KD and Russ.
