OKC vs. Portland: Thunder’s salary cap flexibility key
Salary cap flexibility is the primary reason ESPN the Magazine writer Ric Bucher sides with Oklahoma City over Portland a few seasons from now. "(Portland) still has some big decisions to make as far as their array of talent and who you can pay,” Bucher said. "They’ve got the core, but then they have Rudy Fernandez, Martell Webster and Travis Outlaw among the supporting cast. "Everybody says Paul Allen has enough money he can pay everybody. But that doesn’t necessarily help you. If you pay everybody, is this team good enough right now that if they keep everybody together they can win a championship? I’m not convinced of that.” Thunder general manager Sam Presti has a core built around three young stars and cap flexibility. "(The Trail Blazers) have some difficult decisions to make that the Thunder doesn’t face. Not yet,” Bucher said. "(Presti) can set the table any number of ways.” By Mike Baldwin
