Oklahoma City Thunder: Sometimes the best moves are few moves at all

By Darnell MayberryArron Afflalo went from Orlando to Denver via trade in late June. Fans grumbled. C.J. Miles left Cleveland for Indiana early in the free agency period. Observers complained. Vince Carter ditched Dallas for Memphis. People panicked. Pau Gasol then got away, going from the Lakers to Chicago, and Mike Miller decided he would leave Memphis to again play with LeBron James, this time in Cleveland. That’s about when this offseason was deemed a disappointment for the Thunder by many. But has it been? Now that the majority of player movement has concluded, it’s time to take...

Derrick Rose looks to have locked up spot on Team USA

With Love in the fold alongside Joakim Noah, Gasol likely would be the odd man out of the starting lineup. Neither Love nor Gasol have ever been known as great defenders, so there's little chance that Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau would decide to play all three together to start games.

Sam Presti's "Thunder model," the failed run at Pau Gasol, and a critical point in the future

It was a typical Thunder offseason, as they drafted two rookies and avoided big moves in free agency. Except this time they tried to make one out of Pau Gasol. We are all familiar with what "the Oklahoma City Thunder model" entails now. They play the decision-making game carefully and pin financial control atop their list of priorities. That has translated into a roster built primarily through the draft, where the most cost-effective players tend to come from, and through which the Thunder can cultivate their own players instead of bidding with other teams to sign free agents.
