    Grizzlies would take Ja and trade Conley, think that’s more likely at this point is his career.

    What would throw a huge wrench in this is if Zion pulls an Elway/Eli and refuses to play for NO for some BS reason.

    Then you keep Barrett and Williamson together.

    I'm firmly on the:

    *Trade up for Brandon Clarke
    *Package pick for Julius Randle

    At the deadline the Pels had Randle on the block for a first-rounder.

    I guess its actually possible if they sign him with cap space. Would probably take two 1sts though. Not sure if he's worth it.

    Two late 1s? Why not? I’d love to have Randle, imagine him and Zach for stretches or him and Nurk, straight up bully ball. We would own the paint.

    Him and Zach would fit well together.

    Randle is exactly who we need running pick and roll with Dame in playoffs. You give that dude a runway and he makes teams pay. He'd be the perfect outlet put of the trap. I also still have some hope he can be solid defensively.

    Something like this?
    NOP Gets: Evan Turner, Meyers Leonard, 2020 & 2022 1sts
    POR Gets: Julius Randle ($22M a year?), E'Twaun Moore

    And then try this?
    OKC Gets: E'Twaun Moore
    ATL Gets: Patrick Patterson, Hamidou Diallo, Future 2nd Round Picks (2 from POR, 1 from OKC?), and Cash
    POR Gets: Taurean Prince

    Then you let Layman and Aminu walk.

    Try to resign Hood for (non-bird) and Kanter for MLE, or Hood for MLE and Kanter for Minimum (I think this might be possible, even though the majority doesnt).

    Lillard (36) / McCollum (12)
    McCollum (24) / Hood (24)
    Prince (30) / Harkless (12) / Hood (6)
    Randle (32) / Harkless (10) / Collins (4)
    Collins (22) / Kanter (26)

    Or we trade Harkless and our 2019 1st for Prince, could keep Moore, resign Hood for MLE, let Kanter and Aminu walk, keep Layman, and do this:

    Lillard (36) / McCollum (12)
    McCollum (24) / Moore (21) / Hood (7)
    Prince (25) / Hood (23)
    Randle (27) / Layman (15) / Prince (6)
    Collins (27) / Labissiere (15) / Randle (6)

    Olshey just needs to be creative. Every creative plan is a shot in the dark but if theres enough of them, one should work.

    What a night for Pelicans. They get no. 1 and no. 4 picks.

    What I think they could realistically do is to take an offer of Ball, Ingram and 4th for AD (maybe add Kuzma if Lakers are willing to put him on the table), send Ball to Chicago for no. 7 or Suns for no. 6 (both are supposed to be interested) and additional assets, and then package either no. 4 and no. 6/7 or no. 4 and a future asset to move up to no. 2 if Memphis want to give Conley another year instead of drafting Morant.

    Then you have Morant + Zion, or Zion + no. 4 + no. 6 where you can get a wing and a guard of your choice, + Ingram. Speaking of that I'm not sure if I wouldn't prefer Reddish/Hunter/Culver + White/Garland instead of just Ja.
