    He's mentioned he'd love to sign in Toronto...fans would love it...he won't come here I wouldn't think...always good when a great player from a franchise can retire there

    If he is turkish he's probably Muslim, Nurkic and Aminu are also muslims, they could recruit him

    Facetious reference to several years ago when Hedo Turkoglu spurned our offer to go to Toronto, allegedly in part because he was disappointed with Portland's lack of a Turkish community.

    We don't have any Raki importers? I'm kind of perplexed as well.

    I always thought Kanter signing an offer with us equaled out the Turkey glue issue for me ..Kanter would have been perfect in Portland

    Who would Ilyasova replace in the rotation? Aminu? Harkless? Ed Davis?

    Unfortunately it would probably be Collins, which I think would be a mistake. It would be nice though if Aminu played more 3.

    We can't seem to get any guy to agree with us.

    I bet it will come out that we were his 2nd choice.

    Any choice other than 1st choice with this cat is a good outcome. He is 'orrible.

    Wow--didn't expect Shabazz to be a waiver option. I'd have loved to have added him.

    Our bench, outside of Bazz and Ed Davis, is fucking abysmal right now. I wish we would have picked someone up.

    Be realistic, we have some great bench players, they just happen to start.

    I wish we would've kept Vonleh.
    I wish we would've drafted a scoring wing.
    I wish we could've convinced someone that trading a small guy for Meyers would have been a wise move.
    I wish I was a little bit taller, I wish I was a baller...
