NBA Trade Alert: Taj Gibson, Doug McDermott Acquired By Thunder, Anthony Morrow And Cameron Payne Goes To The Bulls
The NBA Trade deadline is about to end and The Oklahoma City Thunder wasted no time to make some changes. Russell Westbrook is doing all he can to keep the Thunder’s playoff hopes alive. But one man can’t do it alone that’s why they’ve initiated this trade.
As reported a few hours ago, the Oklahoma City Thunder and Chicago Bulls agreed to a reasonable trade. The Thunder sent promising guard Cameron Payne, the struggling sniper from the 3 point line, Anthony Morrow and the versatile forward from France, Joffrey Lauvergne to the Chicago Bulls. In return, they received a marksman in Doug McDermott who will surely help the Oklahoma City Thunder in their shooting woes and Taj Gibson who is a beast and a defensive specialist in the paint.
From Pretender To Contender?
The trade that was made was not really a shocker for both teams. They’ve been stating their willingness to trade their players to somebody who is fitted to play their system. The Chicago Bulls are slowly slipping away and they need to make some various changes in their lineup. NBA fans already know the drama that they are dealing right now but they have to fix their roster first. However, acquiring Anthony Morrow and Cameron Payne doesn’t really make sense. Chicago Bulls roster is full of guards and adding those two will be harder for Fred Hoiberg to run his rotation.
Westbrook And His New Friends
On the other hand, Russell Westbrook and The Oklahoma City Thunder got their wish. Adding Doug McDermott, a steady shooter and a former college star will surely boost up their depleted roster. Also, they’ve added a veteran bruiser who can work with Steven Adams in the paint. Taj Gibson is very athletic at the same time easy to coach as stated by Fred Hoiberg and Tom Thibodeau. So who is the clear winner on this trade? Of course, the Oklahoma City Thunder.
