As Marc Stein put it: "The Lakers and Spurs are unreservedly thrilled right now. They will surely presume that OKC, as presently constituted, is out of the title mix at least for this season. They'll be toasting the Thunder -- instead of doing what we suggested in Question No. 2 about riding out this drama until July if extension terms couldn't be struck -- for deciding to break up the reigning Western Conference champs now in hopes of a better long-term outlook."
---KMart2 is on an expiring contract too so I he doesn't remain with the team past this season then this deal really hinges on the draft picks and Lamb. Either way they're losing an integral piece of their identity. Westbrook will be shipped out in the upcoming years cuz now he'll want to shoot even more.
