I think they simply let Kmart expire and go add to their roster through the draft. That's been Presti's specialty and plus the owner doesn't want to pay taxes.
What they could do is use one of their 1st round picks to deal away a bad contract (Perk?)...now that would be interesting. I guess it remains to be seen just how much their owner is willing to spend. At times like this, you just appreciate Buss that much more.

Statistics tell very little of the story here. Martin is always injured, and has never played in a significant game I can remember. Harden was a huge piece of OKC, he had a bad Finals, but before that he was clutch all playoffs, if take Harden over Martin every time. Seems like kind of a weak trade for OKC to me, unless Lamb is betted than anticipated.
38% of Harden's shots were in the restricted area last year. Martin? 14%.

Hearing a lot about Lin, Asik contracts. Keep in mind, Rockets still have room for another max FA next summer, even after Harden gets max.

According to @mySynergySports, Kevin Martin is in the 16th percentile for defense (terrible). Harden is 61st percentile, which is good
