What the Thunder need:
A dedicated 3-point specialist.
One of the reasons why the Thunder lost in the Finals last season to the Heat was that Miami had two designated 3-point specialists in Shane Battier and Mike Miller, both of whom were integral to the series (and they added another this year - the NBA's all-time leader in 3-pointers made, Ray Allen). OKC has Kevin Durant and Kevin Martin who can knock down the 3-point shot, but is that enough? Should they try to find someone whose sole job is to stretch the defense? Is Magic guard J.J. Redick worth pursuing?
Trade Scenario 1) The Magic trade Redick for Eric Maynor, Jeremy Lamb, and Daniel Orton/DeAndre Liggins and 1st round pick (via Dallas).
Trade Scenario 2) The Thunder trade Redick for Maynor, Lamb, and Liggins, and 1st round pick (via Toronto).
