OKC not making any major moves before the deadline. Plan has been to grow young talent together. Surprise start not changing that … “Wouldn’t a Biedrins for Etan Thomas make sense though?” Mannix: Zero chance. OKC wants to see what it has in Ibaka, Krstic.
Kind of what we thought all along, but the disclaimer of “major moves” is there. So there is still chance we might see a bench player or few draft picks shuffled around.
UPDATE: John Hollinger, chatting on ESPN.com:
Sam Presti (OKC): Do you see me making any moves today? I was thinking I could maybe use Harpring and a pick to help someone get under the cap and get a better pick or a big in return.
John Hollinger: My spies in OKC think its highly unlikely they make a deal today unless they’re bowled over with an offer .. they’d prefer to keep that $1.8 mil in cap space for draft day, they might be able to combine their picks and move up or do some other interesting things.
