OKC says no unless they are desperate to shed future salary.
They're going to need to, right? Durant and Westbrook are max guys and Harden and Ibaka will both be restricted free agents next off-season. Some team will offer these guys close to max deals and you can't have that much money in four players. Especially when you consider the money they've got tied up in Perkins.I like Harden a lot, but he does similar things as Westbrook and you don't have anybody like Ibaka. If you can only keep one guy, I would choose Ibaka. So if you could turn Harden into Thomas Robinson or Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, I think you should do it.
