    LOL. I'm just ridiculing scenarios left and right.

    Who's gonna do our dirty work with both of our junkyard dogs gone?

    Good point. Still, thread said "crazy".

    Legit question though--what would you offer for Paul George (assuming that he'll most likely play like an all-star, perhaps key a deep playoff run, but then leave in the summer)?

    Any non-big3 and non-rookie, but they'd have to take one of either Biebs or ET, and they can't have both Ed and Vonleh.

    Seems to me the bolded would be a non-starter from the OKC side.

    I don't think so (PG makes $$$), but I don't mind. He's leaving them IMHO. I don't think they'll trade him, but they should.

    We need a beast for about 20 minutes a game. Jordan coming off the bench for Nurkic and playing PF at times as a twin tower approach would do just that. And he extends his career by playing less minutes. PS: if Nurkic gets hurt right now - we are toast.

    Lou Williams is instant scoring off our bench; we don’t have a pure shooter on our bench! Evan Turner? Not

    But my trade proposal does something much bigger:

    - Harkness (what a waste at $10 mil/year)
    - Leonard (what a waste. Period)
    - David (gone in a year anyway)

    And I’d rather be in a position of trading away Jordan next Summer than Harkless, Leonard or Davis

    I'm pretty sure they can get more than that for Jordan alone.

    I'm not going to give a scenario, but I'm all about asset acquisition that we could trade down the road.

    The leadership of Lillard has paid off huge with Nurkic.

    This floundering prospect needs a change of culture and scenery. I can see him as instant offense off the bench, the same way OKC utilized Kanter. I know his skillset isn't ideal for this era, but he is a legit post-scoring big. The polar opposite to Vonleh.

    To Portland:
    Jahlil Okafor

    To Portland:
    Mario Hezonja

    I like Harkless for Alec Burks, given how bad Hark is playing we may need to add something, perhaps a 2nd rdr is enough. I'm willing to take a chance on this oft injured player, he has one yr less than Hark on his contract which are similar $$$ wise

    Didn't those teams choose not to retain their rights? Or is it just that they didn't offer them an extension? I don't want to trade for a player without RFA status.
