I’m no fan of Canzano but that is a great article
Now he needs to tell the Spurs and I'm sure it's a done deal.
How would we trade for Leonard when he's already on the team?
So stupid! His idiot followers will now blame Olshey if a trade for Kawhi doesn't happen like they would accept that offer.
"Kawhi wants out..." a league executive said on Wednesday.
CJ McCollum and Portland's first-round draft pick?
Does that get the Blazers in the conversation for Leonard?
I don't think that even comes close to getting Leonard.
Meyers fits into the TPE, we should use it on him.
Probably not but it’s a starting point...
Or the conversation
McCollum is a gifted offensive player. He's creative, and would be a nice complement with LaMarcus Aldridge. And a 2018 first-round NBA Draft pick is a tantalizing asset when few teams are willing to trade them.
Why does Canzano say shit like this? I bet 25 teams would give up their "tantalizing" 1st round draft pick for Leonard.
Our best offer is CJ, Collins, and a 1st. I've said this before but Kawhi would be leaving a team he won a title with, a team that would still be a contender if he was healthy, and an organization that I've never really seen a person want away from. Word is his camp is in his ear telling him he needs a bigger market. If he is unhappy with the Spurs he sure as hell isn't going to stay with the Blazers. We don't even know if he is going to be healthy enough to play next year. So we'd almost certainly lose Kawhi after the one season in which he might not even play and we'd have nothing to show for it because we mortgaged the future too.
Canzano and a billion dollars to a different city's media source for a respectable, knowledgeable sports reporter...
Does that get us in the conversation for better reporting?
Hell, I think the CJ for Leonard trade is more likely.
Scratch that, a Leonard for Leonard trade is more likely.
The 24th pick is such a great asset to trade for Leonard because so few teams are unwilling to give up a 1st round pick.
Lmao. Philadelphia essentially gave up Jayson Tatum and a likely top 5 pick in 2019 for Markelle Fultz. The New Orleans Pelicans gave up a 1st for Nikola Mirotic. Yeah, the Spurs will jump at that offer since it includes a 1st round pick!
No, it's not. It's awful writing and dripping in lack of knowledge.
Is Kawhi permanently injured? Could Olshey get him to re-sign here?
If those 2 answers are right, then I remind you that SF is our position of need. McCollum and a 1st would start the conversation, not be the final word. Another team will probably get Kawhi, but the point is that do-nothing, draft-only Olshey should try. But he overrates McCollum, and won't. He'll say he made a couple of calls, but he won't seriously try.
All you say is Accurate!
Leonard is only 26. He's a superstar player playing in his prime years. He's under contract for next season at $20.1 million and holds a player option for 2018-19
Huh? Next season is 2018-19, and his player option is for 19-20. Seriously, who edits this stuff? Quality control at the O is nonexistent.
If they were concerned about quality, someone would have taken out the Canzanotrash a long time ago.
