Thunder Supposedly Turned down a Ibaka & Harden for Dwight Howard Trade

The rumor according to Brian K. Schmit, a Magic insider and Sports Illustrated writer Chris Mannix is that the Thunder rejected a trade offer from the Orlando Magic that would send Dwight Howard to OKC for Ibaka and James Harden.  I have a hard time believing this.  Although I believe Ibaka & Harden are future All-Stars and probably fit the team better, for business/marketing reasons alone I would think the Thunder would probably jump on this deal if the offer was legit.

Just say these three names together and then tell me you wouldn’t say yes.  Durant – Westbrook – Dwight
