The list of teams (Golden State Warriors, Phoenix Suns, Charlotte Bobcats) did not include the Oklahoma City Thunder, however, according to an NBA GM – the Thunder have interest in obtaining the veteran.
Fox Sports’ Sam Amico dropped the nugget of news during a recent chat.
All I’ve heard on Bass is yes … and the Warriors. Although one GM said he’s heard the Thunder, too, which I found interesting.
Bass is due $6.4 million this season and $6.9 million next season, so finding a deal between the two clubs will be difficult.
Kendrick Perkins would conceivably fit from a financial standpoint, but I can’t imagine the Celtics are interested in a reunion. Thabo Sefolosha is an expiring contract worth $4 million dollars, something the Celtics would like, but I don’t see the Thunder trading him.
It seems as if a deal between the two clubs would need the assistance of a third team as the money doesn’t seem to match-up well.
