    I just need to clarify my 'like'. It is for Ilyasova not for your agreement of Rose being on the team.

    Oden was a #1 pick too and I wouldn't want him here either. Rose would be subtraction by addition.

    Besides, last thing we need is another point guard.

    We might as well rename this the buyout thread. Portland should be a player for anyone let go.

    I'll just clarify that I don't really want Rose BUT it would stir the pot a little which would probably be a good thing.

    Not sure about that. He can spark off the bench has had a couple 20+ point games and there is no question that he has experience to give. But don't expect him to shoot threes. That ain't gonna happen.

    Your clarification of my clarification has been clarified.

    *I would do the cheers emoji if I wasn't on my phone at this time.*

    Who are the best free agents playing overseas?

    I watch the Spanish league and Anthony Randolph would be such a great fit. He plays for Real Madrid and has really improved his game since leaving the league. Can shoot threes and fits the modern nba. I believe he has an out in his contract as well. Might be more of a signing for next season but maybe?

    Can I do that myself or does a moderator have to do that?

    @SlyPokerDog or @PtldPlatypus might be able to help you out? Sometimes cost $50 for people they don't like?

    Here’s another name: Jarell Eddie. 6’7 220. 26 years old. Averaging 17.5ppg in the g league. Lights out shooter (career 45% 3pt.) Shooting 48% from deep this year on over 7 attempts a game.

    This makes it even more likely that Portland will look to sign someone else to fill a roster spot.

    Wasn't he on the Celtics roster for a moment? I don't think he got any playing time there though.

    I would like us to go for the most promising small forward we can find in the G-League or Europe, kind of what Utah did with Royce O'Neale. He is not amazing but he is probably better than any small forward we have.

    Don't go for any guards or bigs, it's pointless. Our rotation is fine in those position but at 3 there is a glaring hole.

    Let's find our Covington.

    Yeah he was on a ten day contract. They didn’t give him a second one because they wanted to keep a roster spot open for “ballhandlers.”

    Eddie does the same things Belinelli does, but of course he hasn’t proven himself in the NBA. He hasn’t gotten a real shot though.

    DRose is done. Stick a fork in him.

    I think he's done doing the rehab thing as a career.

    Ah okay.

    I'd much rather take a chance on someone who has barely played in this league than go for an average veteran, to be honest. Discovering our own TJ McConnell/Covington/Whiteside as I mentioned would be much better than getting someone who will maybe contribute for 2-3 months but will not have any impact going forward.

    Miami got Whiteside on a minimum deal and see how it turned out, he's their biggest star now after Dragic.
