Oklahoma City Thunder: 2 players who would be ideal trade deadline targets

The Oklahoma City Thunder have been one of the more intriguing teams to follow since the end of last season. After coming up short in the playoffs again with Russell Westbrook and Paul George, the team decided to blow things up. Both of the stars were traded to other teams and Chris Paul was acquired in exchange for Westbrook.

Many thought the Thunder would end up flipping Paul for more future assets. However, they have held onto him and he has quickly become a fan favorite and a big part of Oklahoma City remaining relatively competitive.

Coming into tonight’s matchup with the Atlanta Hawks, the Thunder had a 26-19 record. That puts them right in the middle of playoff contention. It also gives them reason to think about trying to add at the NBA trade deadline rather than subtract.

Sam Presti will have some decisions to make this offseason. Should the Thunder look to sell off their talent in Danilo Gallinari and Paul, or should they look to bring in some pieces to the supporting cast?

If the Thunder choose to add talent to their roster, here are two players that would make a lot of sense for the team to target via trade.
