    I think the Spurs got in on that deal and grabbed Harrison Barnes. Can't trust Coach Popovic though, he's a stealth tank master.

    I just want to get the best value possible for our assets and not half-ass the rebuild.

    If we emerge from this rebuild with Simons or Grant we have half-assed the rebuild, IMO.

    Unprotected 2031 pick swap from the Kings to the Spurs when Wemby is in his prime. Yikes. That’s some classic Kangz stuff.

    If they remain in Portland i'm not wishing injury on anyone, but I do not recall Ant or Grant having had their core surgeries yet. Maybe they should just volunteer to have it done to avert the inevitable. After Dame and GP2 weeks, and did Little have the procedure? Time to be proactive.

    They're going to pay for Jerami. If they were moving onto someone else we'd already know. They'll pay, I just don't know how much and if a third team will be involved.

    It'll be an equivalent of 2 firsts

    More likely they pivot to Kuzma, Brown, etc as they could get two of those guys. If they're giving up the rest of their picks their going to target Markennen, Trae, Garland and not Jeremi Grant.

    One unprotected first and an unprotected swap is a great haul for Portland, so I hope Cronin isn't insisting on more. We could be getting stuck in a Timelord 2.0 situation with a much worse contract.

    Wow Spurs get a 2031 unprotected swap from the Kings. By far the best asset in the DeRozen trade. Barnes isn't even that bad of a contract, Spurs might also be able to flip him for value later, just as OKC has done.

    That is the type of deal the rebuilding Blazers should try to use cap space for if we can ever get smart with our spending.

    Yet you were just arguing against the value of cap space/TPE in the anfernee thread

    I doubt they want Trae.
    I doubt they have enough assets for Markennen and Garland.

    Kuzma is the one I have been wondering about. Cheaper and younger than Grant and he played well for the Lakers when he was there.

    He was average at best when he was there. His rookie season was actually his best Laker year, and he only really eclipsed that in Washington through higher usage. Sure, he's cheaper, but there are myriad reasons. He can't swing down to the 3 like Grant can, he's not much of a floor spreader, and he's markedly worse defensively. If the Lakers want to take another swing at contending with Lebron, Kuzma can't get them there.

    You will give us 2 first round picks for Jerami Grant, and you will like it.

    Yeah that seems to be Cronin's stance, and I guess I get it. Rui/DLo/29 would be pretty good too, assuming Russell could be flipped further, but I get the feeling that's not on the table.

    Just seems to me like Pelinka's going to piss off the Laker fan base if he can't get a deal done for a difference maker, but he doesn't seem to have the stomach for the necessary risk.

    I don't see why LA would want to trade D'Angelo. He's like a Jerami Grant of PGs. Who would they replace him with?
