If I recall correctly, didn't Danny mention that he never wanted to be in a position again where he didn't have the assets to make a trade for a player of Harden's caliber? I guess he would have said the same thing if Westbrook was the one traded. If OKC kept all three players, does Danny ever make the Brooklyn trade? I know Danny mentioned he would have traded Larry and Kevin if he were Red. However, was the inability to trade for Harden the leverage Danny needed to convince ownership to trade Pierce and Garnett?

Its funny you mention that, because Harden wouldn't have ever been traded if the CP3 trade wasn't vetoed. Kevin Martin was the main return that OKC was eyeing, along with the 2 picks and Jeremy Lamb, (who they believed could eventually replace Harden's input and usage.) The NBA is crazy sometimes.
