On another OKC Thunder website there's obviously been a lot of talk about the draft and potential picks, potential trades up and down and all other trade options. It seems that a lot of people think Green and the #3 for Blake Griffin should be done if the Clippers are willing. I have my reservations about Griffin, but obviously you think long and hard about that deal, not just talent wise but chemistry wise as well. My decision would be thanks but no thanks because I think Green will be equal to if not better than Griffin.
However, a lot of OKC fans feel that Green should be traded regardless of whether it lands Griffin or not, saying he cannot/will not ever be a good PF in the NBA, citing poor shooting %, turnovers, and poor rebounding. I am of the opinion that Green can play PF and can play at an all-star level. I think that shooting and turnover problems are mainly a product of being young and that as you get acclimated to the game, as does rebounding. He averaged 6.7 rebs per game putting him above a guy like Rashard Lewis. Also when you see that only 9 players averaged 9+ rebs per game, his rebounding is not so bad that he cannot play PF.
So my question is, do you all think Jeff Green can play PF in the NBA? and should we trade him regardless of whether trading him lands us Blake Griffin?
