Elsewhere, a source said Oklahoma City was interested in packaging its two first-round picks (Nos. 12 and 29) and Kendrick Perkins for a top-five pick. But the Thunder have had no takers either.
A tough deal to pull off. The top five teams are the Cavs, Magic, Wizards, Bobcats and Suns. None especially need a center like Perk, and none likely want to take on his contract. If Perk were expiring, this might be a realistic deal to pull off.
But at this point, there’s just no way.
