Martin just needs to be a scoring 6th man off the bench with Maynor facilitating. It will take a while to get it going, but they will be fine. The goods news is they got rid of 3 players that can't play, and added an extra talented player. The trade can't be judged until the picks are used in some way. We will know in 3 or 4 years. Maybe sooner if the picks are traded.
My instance that Harden is a max player really isn't even about the trade because it's one OKC had to make because Harden needed to be paid like the star he is.

I think Durant really can score over 30 PPG this year.
