In many NBA circles, “tanking” is a dirty word. With that said, it can be an apt way to describe how certain franchises operate.

If any team in the league is tanking, it would have to be the Oklahoma City Thunder. With a treasure trove of future first-round picks, they’re solely focused on the future. Winning games next season may not be a desirable outcome for this organization.

Meanwhile, the Blazers seem steadfastly opposed to the strategy. They’d prefer to soldier on with the players they have and focus on the present, for better or for worse.

With both teams having such vastly different philosophies, could they come to together to make a mutually beneficial trade? If the Thunder are looking to lose next year, could they entertain trading Shai Gilgeous-Alexander?
