    I say NO THANKS. I don't see him as appreciably better than Jerami.

    Never been a big fan. He always looks disinterested. Maybe it's the perpetual "I'm stoned" eyes. I want some guys with a little more fire.

    think of a big fat number between $40-50M. then add a few million dollars. that's how much you'd have to pay him to play in Portland for each of his 28-31 or 32 seasons.

    then, decide whether he even makes sense in portland.

    Expiring 36m contract.

    This year's rent-a-Blazer ?

    Keep BI healthy, trade him for scrubs and a pick midseason. Then draft a Kris Murray in summer of 2025. Tell everyone Ingram was going to leave, and Cronin got something for nothing.

    In the context of the Blazers trading for him, that is an F-No!

    Don't understand why this should be a thread. Blazers fans seem pretty united that Ingram would be a stupid acquisition here.

    Did I miss the part where Joe Cronin gives a shit about what Blazers fans think?

    Is the purpose of threads here to discuss what Blazers fans think or give Joe Cronin input?

    Point taken, but if Cronin thinks trading for Ingram is something to pursue, wouldn’t we have a thread about that?

    Is the purpose of threads only to disagree with one another?

    It would be weird if we never had threads where people could all agree.

    In that case, I agree with you.

    Scoot, Sharpe, BI, Grant and Ayton? Can this group make some noise?

    Well yes we can all agree, but shouldn't there be something related to the Blazers or an argument we are agreeing to or such? The first reddit post has no mention of the Blazers, and there's no proposal or argument of how this impacts the Blazers, so just seems like a random thread with zero substance that I questioned the purpose of.

    Well, here’s how a move like trading for Ingram, or a similar player, COULD be worth kicking the tires on. I think there’s a chance this summer that Cronin zigs when most expect him to zag. If he can use Brogdon and Williams to add a solid seasoned vet at the SF position then the Blazers’ roster suddenly looks more competitive. Ayton, Grant, Ingram (or another better fit), Sharpe, Scoot, Simons as 6th man, Jabari, existing and newly drafted young guys is intriguing to me.

    Me too. Would brogdon/Williams and picks be enough? Id actually prefer to trade Ant and keep Brogdon off the bench. Would Ant/Williams and picks be enough?

    Would they be interested in these players? Likely not Ant because they have CJ.

    If it could be swung, id do it.

    Scoot/Banton?
    Sharpe/Ant?
    BI/Camara
    Grant/Walker
    Ayton/Reath/Badji?

    need more front line help. But that is intriguing to me.

    Nope.
    Back court is too inexperienced.

    Forwards can't rebound and are too aloof.
