    Maybe NO got a good offer for Ed Davis but had to pass it up because Dame has made it clear about Ed. So NO decided well if Ed is not an option the next valuable asset for a team is Vonleh :(

    HIGHLY unlikely but I wouldn't say it is impossible that we don't show interest in Noah in the future.

    Ok, maybe too many double-negatives there. If Noah came cheap, we may consider him again someday.

    At 32 years old he'd better be the Serbian Cyborg

    I get the people who are upset that the Blazers didn't find a way to make a meaningful trade to improve the team. That's always disappointing.

    However, on it's face the Vonleh trade seems to me to be a good trade. The Blazers didn't trade Noah (and cash) for nothing. They got a trade exception, which may or may not end up having future value. Most importantly, the trade keeps the team under the tax which will make it more economically feasible to go over the cap this summer to keep Nurk, Ed, and possibly Napier, and to potentially use the trade exceptions to sign or trade for another player.

    I get being upset that Olshey got us into contract hell in the first place. I get being hugely disappointed in not making a trade that improved the team immediately. But this specific trade to me looks like a no brainer. Plus, it opens up minutes for fan favorite Biggie ;)

    :cheers:

    I bet we use one of the two at some point. They last 12 months. We have until late July on one and next Feb on another.

    I'd take that bet.
    I highly doubt either one gets used. 75%-90% of the TPE's league wide never get used.

    Vonleh being traded for Eurotrash is the most Importer/Exporter thing ever.

    I'm excited about the minutes opportunity for Swanigan now that Vonleh is gone and Collins is struggling.

    Better quote @TBpup wouldn't want anyone getting credit for something someone else said.
