    Aminu and a 2nd for Jabari Parker

    Shabazz, Moe, and Collins or a 1st for Tobias Harris

    Dame/MLE player or draft pick
    CJ/Pat
    Harris/Turner
    Parker/Vonleh/Swanigan
    Nurk/Davis/Meyers

    Milwaukee doesn’t want to pay Parker this offseason and Aminu comes cheap and fits their blueprint.

    Detroit has regressed and may want to just hit reset and look for young players and picks. We know they were shopping Drummond and Jackson last deadline. This rides on Detroit continuing to struggle and their interest in Collins or our draft pick.

    That’s my best shot at something big yet plausible.

    I like both those targets, but I'm pretty sure our side of each deal would probably need to increase, although I wouldn't be willing to include Collins in a Parker deal, simply due to his injury history. Perhaps send Vonleh along with Aminu, and/or take back Dellavadova; maybe send Davis to Detroit as well?

    Dame/Delly/Baldwin
    CJ/Pat
    Harris/Turner/Layman
    Parker/Collins/Swanigan
    Nurk/Meyers

    Our rebounding would certainly suffer, but maybe we'd be able to score again...

    I want one of these two scenarios to actually play out;

    Aminu, Vonleh, and Ed for Jabari Parker and John Henson. Then we dump Napier and/or Harkless/Leonard to get under the luxury tax.

    Or

    Harkless and Leonard for Mirotic. Chicago could throw in Felício if they don’t want to take on salary. Then we dump Napier and/or Ed to get under the luxury tax.

    "Is this player from our state?"

    "No"

    "THEN BE GONE!"

    That must be how it goes.

    I was joking but with Leonard comfort is everything. Playing in front of family would probably do a lot for his psyche.

    There’s a good player somewhere in there. Blazers fans wouldn’t be as emotional about him if there wasn’t.

    I think it's partly because we see -something-, but I would venture to guess a lot of people have soured on how he carries himself and how his psyche plays him.

    Detroit isn't trading Tobias for (for them) would be 2 bench players and a borderline starter.

    Oh snap... you're right. Didn't even look at the year.

    I wouldn’t be suprised if Detroit wouldn’t take that deal but I’d argue that Collins, Shabazz, and Moe is a better return than Henderson and Vonleh was for Batum. And Batum in 2014 probably had similar value as Harris does this year.

    I honestly couldn’t guess Jabari’s value. On one hand he was looking like an absolute stud last year before his injury, but on the other hand that’s now two significant injuries in the same knee, and he’s a pending FA.

    I wish a big trade with Orlando. They are about to blow it up. Simmons Fournier and Vucevic for Shabazz, Ed and Harkless.

    While I don’t think that trade is anywhere near realistic lol, I do think Orlando would be a good partner. I’d be interested in a lot of their players. Simmons, Fournier, Ross, Hezonja, and if we really wanted to get crazy, a deal centered around CJ and Gordon. Or CJ for their pick and Isaac.
