Think about it, they traded Jeff Green after 2 and half seasons, they trade James Harden after three seasons... whenever a forward/guard starts to look good - i.e take points/focus away from Durant and Westbrook, management ships him out. OKC has to learn one thing - you can't win anything these days without a third legitimate scorer....
