OKC Thunder to Shake Up Rotations?

The Thunder’s B Team just hasn’t been very good, and definitely not nearly what it was last year.
The Thunder has changed and its bench must now evolve.
Brooks is in the process of plotting that transformation, and he has a plan that could work. It’s an adjustment that has the potential to bring more balance to the bench unit while establishing additional harmony in the star-studded first string.
The idea is to sub out Kevin Durant earlier.
By sitting Durant earlier, the Thunder can accomplish three things: most importantly a more sensible rotation that relies less on only Eric Maynor and Kevin Martin to create, secondly, an opportunity for (Russell) Westbrook to run as wild as his heart desires for longer stretches and, lastly, more rest for Durant.
