Not so sure that OKC is going to tank this year. They have too many good players to be bad: Paul, SGA, Gallinari, Adams, Roberson and Schroder. Even in a stacked Western Conference that could be a playoff team. Presti will probably be opportunistic and move a guy if the package is right, but there's no incentive right now for a fire sale. They'll do a smaller deal to duck under the tax, but after that I think they'll let the season play out and assess what they have. They have enough future draft capital now that they can go a variety of directions, including getting into superstar trades if they so desire.
