"Right" isn't the correct word. It's why they have all them perdy buildings and stuff
This is correct
Minnesota gives up Dieng and a 1st for a 2nd?
If you were Miami, would you trade number 13 for that crap?
Yes. They want to pursue Russell, and they want to get rid of Diengs contract.
Yes. Every heard of a salary dump ? They save $4M mext year to help with their awful tax issues, but the year after that they save a whopping $40M. They want to clear cap space and this draft is below-average. The equivilant of a mid-1st to shed that much salary is realistic. Brooklyn just gave up 17 to shed Crabbe only.
Minnesota with 3 max contracts? I would have seen it all if this happens
Maybe time for a break?
Why would min do that?
Dump Dieng. Clear some money in pursuit of the cap space tonsign DLo.
Charlotte at 12 with Batum is possible too.
Probably Portland's best possible offer.
New Orleans Gets:
Gary Trent Jr.
2020 POR 1st
2022 POR 1st
2020 POR 2nd
2022 POR 2nd
I wouldn't expect it to be that much, just laying the assets out on the table.
My Dream scenario: We draft Bazley, Davis wait until next offseason, we clear more cap Space and sign him. Our starting 5 will be:
Bazley (already good player at that point)
Other vets for the MLE and Minimum
Let me dream fams
Seriously fuck this guy, NBA needs to ban him.
He has brainwashed Davis
LOL Caesar's Palace.
If Layman is our starting forward next year we are in Big Big trouble.
I understand that, I'm just saying that if NO is asking that much I would pass
Portland Trail Blazers
Blazers get: Anthony Davis, E'Twaun Moore, Jahlil Okafor
Pelicans get: CJ McCollum, Jusuf Nurkic, 2019 No. 25 pick, 2021 Portland first-round pick
André Snellings: In this deal, the Blazers become the next team to push in all their chips for a guaranteed season with a superstar. The Davis-Damian Lillard combo would make them contenders immediately, with both stars at the peak of their powers and starving for a title. Plus, like the Raptors, Portland has an outstanding fan base that would welcome Davis with open arms. And if Davis doesn't decide to stay, the Trail Blazers have a lot of expiring deals and would then have the opportunity to almost start fresh around Lillard, who reportedly is interested in signing an upcoming supermax extension.
On the Pelicans' side, McCollum is an All Star-caliber player who has averaged 24.4 PPG during his last three playoff appearances in a secondary role. McCollum is entering his peak at only 27 years old, he's an excellent scorer who would be an outstanding fit next to Williamson and would also form a very intriguing backcourt with Jrue Holiday. Nurkic is only 24. He averaged 15 points and almost 10 rebounds in his two-plus seasons in Portland, and he was rounding into one of the better young big men in the NBA before his leg injury. Both are foundation-level players, and the two draft picks help round out the deal.
