If this shit is true...
Would you do this and would the Suns?
I think I’d rather have OG.
Would you rather have OG so much that you'd give up the 7th and the TPE or would you only do it if the Raptors took Bledsoe along with the 7th?
If your answer is Bledsoe then we could do both.
But I was more just giving my opinion of which player I would covet more.
I could see Ayton coming to Portland being no better than Nurkic.
That's an interesting take on Ayton. I think he is so much more athletic and probably more of a beast than our Bosnian friend on both ends of the court.
just say no to Ayton, especially at the cost of Hart. I don't believe Dame is pushing hard for this and it's just a parroted rumor based upon speculation rather than real sourcing
Ayton may be worth 20M/year...maybe...but I wouldn't pay it. He's sure as fuck not worth 34M/year....that just purely stupid
one other thing, this would be Dame essentially stabbing Nurkic in the back. I'd be really surprised if he did that
i think they’re fairly even defensively. I think playing with Chris Paul makes adequate players look much better offensively.
I just think upgrading/bolstering the wing is more of a priority than possibly a slight upgrade at Center.
Realgm is fake rumors
At least it’s not the annoying Jerami Grant shit.
Dame addressed this on his IG the other night by putting bug eye emojis with the words "OH HERE WE GO.." (or something very similar)
What is this OR shit?? I want Ayton AND Anunoby.
I think Ayton is better and I know Ayton is younger. I’m in. Esp if we get Crowder in the deal.
Breaking: Dame wants to play with good players. Story soon
So I'm reading this thread and I take away that we could trade Nurk (In a heartbeat) Hart, Bledsoe (Who has never played here) and a couple picks and we get-
To put along side of Lillard, Simons, Nassir Little, Joe Ingles (remember that guy), Keon Johnson, Drew Eubanks, Greg Brown, Trendon Watford, Winslow, CJ Elleby
Looking at that roster? How could you say that isn't a huge upgrade?
That roster might even compete?
Remember- This is all possible at this point. Maybe not probable but certainly possible.
Are we all still calling Joe Cronin a bad GM?
Ayton has All Star potential. Nurk would never get a single vote. Dame has to be helped out with all star caliber players. Look at the finals: Curry Wiggins Klay Green. Those are all nba guys. Smart Tatum Brown also all nba guys. You have to take chances. GSW took a huge chance on Wiggins and it paid off.
That said Phx would laugh at this. Why would they want Nurk?
Was my first question. However, Remember Ayton would not even play at the end of that playoff series. He is not real happy where he happens to be right now.
At least that is the word i have read?
Hence the risk of blowing a chunk of cash on him. I like to think Dame could change his attitude but I know that is wishful thinking.
So Damian wants Grant, OG, Ayton, McGee and LaVine.
It's almost as if agents are using Portlands cap space AND the implied notion that the team is desperate to improve, to benefit their own clients.
I guess if you think that Nurk isn't worth 17M then this deal would be laughable to Phoenix but the word is they have no interest in paying Ayton the max but not that they don't value bigs at all. Getting Nurk for around half the price, getting Hart, a future first and a future second would be good enough value for a signed and traded Ayton and Crowder but only if Phoenix is still interested in retaining a traditional big.
