ESPN's John Hollinger did his weekly online chat on Friday, where he fielded a myriad of questions from around the league. I have extracted the two that are related to the Thunder generally and Jeff Green specifically.
You can read the entire transcript here.
Question: Is Jeff Green in the Thunder's future?
John Hollinger: Highly debatable. I think they like that he's low-maintenance and can space the floor, but they don't value that enough to match a wild offer from another team. If OKC can keep him at reasonable $$ they will, but they have a lot of guys to pay over the next few years and have to manage the dough carefully.
Question: Jeff Green for Demarcus Cousins, what do you think? Anything else needed to sweeten the deal?
John Hollinger: There is a better chance of the Thunder moving back to Seattle than there is of them trading for DeMarcus Cousins.
Will Jeff Green be with the team long term?
Absolutely, yes. He's integral to the team's future. (1 vote)
