    I think they should keep Aminu, Davis and Swanigan. Moving Leonard, Harkless and Napier seems to me the best way to drop the salary total.

    Changed my mind. I think Napier is pretty valuable and should stay

    I just posted this in another thread, but thought it fit better here -

    Just for fun, I calculated the dollars per minute the Blazers are paying each player. With players like Dame and CJ getting the max, I assumed they'd be at the top of the list. Meyers couldn't be 'that' over paid.....

    Well, yes. Meyers is 'that' over paid. Wow.

    The best 'value' is no surprise - Connaughton, followed closely by Nurk.

    While I don't hate Collins, I find it funny the top two are both WABC

    Here's an update to the $/Minute calculation -

    With his surge in playing time, Collins has moved to the 'bargain' level.

    Connaughton, Nurkic, and Napier are all excellent values. Unfortunately, they're all free agents this summer. Since they're all restricted free-agents, Olshey has the option to bring them all back if he chooses. I say bring them all back. Let's hope we can get them at a good value.

    Actually this whole thing should maybe be updated to exclude Vonleh?

    And Dame still is a bargain at that number compared to some of the other great players in the league.

    that #-----$279,000,000 in committed salaries...... over 1/4 billion $'s...... mind boggling considering its only a game to me. they could roll out the washigton generals in the blazers' pinwheel and i would still be a fan though.

    Welcome back! Your site is sorely missed.

    Is the last year of Nurk's deal fully guaranteed? I read it was $4 mil somewhere. And have we not renounced Bazz/Pat yet?

    Color me as a huge fan of the fact that, when Simons (who hasn't played a game over HS in his life) will be eligible for his qualifying offer, we'll still be on the cap hook for Andrew Nicholson.
