Here are a few of the questions and answers from today's chat:
On whether the OKC Thunder will sign a big name free agent, such as Shane Battier or Tayshaun Prince:
Highly doubtful. OKC has to save money and be smart [so that it can resign Russell Westbrook, Serge Ibaka and James Harden].
On players the Thunder could trade in the offseason:
[Byron] Mullens. He's getting squeezed out.
On whether the Thunder will lose any coaches:
Gut says [assistant coach Maurice] Cheeks is gone.
On the most important bench player next season:
[Nick] Collison: Game-changer on D.
On what's more likely - Kevin Durant developing a low-post game or Russell Westbrook developing a floater:
On the Thunder's weakness:
Perimeter shooting can improve.
On who the Thunder will draft next week:
I like [Duke forward Kyle] Singler.
On Nate Robinson's value in the trade market:
Depends on what a team is trying to unload. Under normal circumstances, not much.
