    to sign Ayton outright, assuming he'd get the max, the Blazers would have to renounce their rights to Nurkic, their MLE, all their TPE's,...

    The problem is it wasn't like he missed swinging for the fences he made a low reward, high risk move with good odds that went against the...

    The big swing they could take (of course) is moving Ant for talent that is a better fit beside Dame. Other then future draft assets (please...

    It's a team game and there are many variables to the PTB besides just Dame. They have no defensive stoppers... teams lick their chops...

    Yep, I already acknowledged that we have choices. Obviously, you're free to choose the pissed off and miserable option if you like.
