    Not sure I believe that. Christian Wood barely got a 1st. Jerami Grant a 1st in 2025.

    Which team wants to give an aging Gordon a 1st?

    Hopefully. I'd be happy with adding Thybulle for nothing.

    This might be a better version:

    76ers:
    To get Gordon, they have to send out $15.6M in contracts.
    Green ($9.3M guaranteed out of $10M contract) + Thybulle ($4.4M) + Reed ($1.8M) <-> Gordon ($19.5M)
    Sixers get their scoring guard.


    Portland:
    Thybulle & Reed are absorbed into TPE. Portland needs to send out $4.3M in contracts
    Keon Johnson ($2.6M) + Bledsoe ($3.9M guaranteed out of $19.3M contract) <-> Green ($9.3M guaranteed out of $10M contract) + Thybulle ($4.4M) + Reed ($1.8M)
    Gets 2 of my targets for this off-season, but have to eat $9M of salary.


    Rockets:
    Houston would have to send out a minimum of $17.5M in contracts
    Gordon ($19.5M) <-> Keon Johnson ($2.6M) + Bledsoe ($3.9M guaranteed out of $19.3M contract)
    They cut Bledsoe & come away with a $13M of cap savings.

    What would we trade for thybulle?
    Doesn’t make much sense to me

    Wouldn’t the trade for thybulle hurt our ability to trade for OG or Collins

    I don't believe that...
    They are LOOKING for a first. Personally, I have Gordon as being negative contract value.

    That's a long shot to begin with...

    If there was any hope for that in the future, then Portland could keep Bledsoe and send out Winslow I outlined above.

    Probably have a contingency for both scenarios. In fact, Probably a dozen or more scenarios.

    I’m ok with that which I assume would mean we’d keep our pick or potentially trade down

    You can watch Torey and Eric and do live chat there on YouTube. no bs like they have on ESPN. If the link doesn't work for you just search on YouTube for Blazers Uprise.

    they are Live now.

    I wish we could somehow get Duren someway without reaching with him with our 7th pick.
