Quote of the Day: Sam Presti loves classic Pink Floyd

“Well as I was saying about Dark Side of the Moon, it’s a really great album.”

—Thunder GM Sam Presti, jokingly trying to change the topic when asked Wednesday about the contract status of James Harden, (via Royce Young on twitter).

My guess is he was listening to “Money” over and over. That or “Us and Them.”

James Harden is up for an extension and wants to stay with the Thunder, but nothing has been worked out yet. Harden is asking for a max deal, the Thunder are hoping he will take a little less to help them with their coming tax bills. Harden isn’t moving, and if a deal isn’t reached by Oct. 31 then next summer Harden will be a restricted free agent. And you can bet some team is going to offer him a max deal (hello Dallas). Then the Thunder would have three days to match or let Harden walk. 

I’d be shocked if Harden is not with the Thunder for the 2013-14 season, it’s just a matter of when Presti stops listening to vintage Pink Floyd and gets ownership to accept the coming tax bill.
