    Since I'm seeing some "trade Dame" stuff out there, I guess the crazy trade thread should be revived.

    The Magic, plus CJ, Shabazz, and Nurkic? I didn't say it was a good trade, just a "crazy" one.

    I'm just waiting for the DeAndre Jordan to the Blazers rumors to start up again.

    I'd do it for Shabazz and play a line of Nurkic, Ed Davis, Vonleh, ZCo and DeAndre. Go big or go home.

    2 different variations with New Orleans.

    Cousins for Nurk as the primary swap. Add Napier with control, and Harkless. Leonard could be an ok 3rd big alongside Davis, spreading the floor. Dump Ajinca contract. Swap Rondo for Napier, getting youth, scoring, and control.

    Obviously, only way New Orleans does it if it feels uneasy about its playoff chances, and also about its ability to sign Cousins in the offseason. Add 2 RFA in Nurk and Napier they have better control over.

    I think I'd push for Payton.

    Dame/Vonleh for Gordon/Payton/Fournier.

    Payton
    CJ
    Fournier
    Gordon
    Nurk

    Bazz
    Turner
    Harkless
    Aminu
    Collins

    Would be ecstatic if we could somehow score Jabari.
    He has a a complete game and his first step/acceleration is insane.

    Not sure if we have the assets to acquire him though & how will he come back from multiple injuries??

    It’s a real question mark, but he probably wouldn’t be available otherwise. I just don’t see how the risk isn’t worth the reward.

    As I said in the other thread . . . This ^ a million times.

    I’d trade CJ/Nurkic for Jaylon Brown/Al Horford Lol
