    I'm not sure why I was thinking about this earlier but I had this just pop in my head that we are going to trade CJ and ET to the Bulls for Otto Porter. It would cut $19 million off our cap number this summer. Porter could slide in to Aminu's spot as the PF and it would open up the possibility of at least keeping one of Curry, Hood, or Kanter by opening up the Full-MLE without too much worry about the hard cap. I'm not sure if either team would do that but attaching a bad contract to a team with some cap space that has a decent player to give us back too is one way we could maybe accomplish this.

    See, I didn't include Turner because I think he has negative value. That said, the Bulls are the only team I see taking him.t

    I actually believe that Meyers has more trade value.

    Make that a 3-team trade:

    POR gets: Porter, Griffin
    CHI gets: McCollum, Turner, #15 (DET)
    DET gets: Meyers, Harkless, #8 (CHI), #25 (POR), 2021 POR 1st

    I actually really like that. Doesnt clear money but I think at that point we'd bring back Hood for the tax-payer MLE, Aminu, and Layman.

    Lillard (36) / Simons (12)
    Hood (32) / Simons (8) / Layman (6)
    Porter (34) / Layman (14)
    Griffin (28) / Aminu (20)
    Collins (22) / Labissiere (18) / Griffin (8)

    Then when Nurk returns, its be smart to try to turn Aminu or Layman into a big guard then can help Simons run the bench (Like Tonas Satoransky?)

    Lillard (36) / Simons (12)
    Hood (27) / Satoransky (15) / Simons (6) /
    Porter (30) / Aminu (18)
    Griffin (35) / Labissiere (10) / Aminu (3)
    Nurkic (25) / Collins (18) / Labissiere (5)

    Leonard can't hold a candle to Turner.
    I've never seen a more energetic player than Turner and I've seen an awful lot of players.
    Although Turner is not having a great year, I expect him to have a great year next season, especially when he posts up against a shorter defender.
    I'm a fan of Turner.

    You just can't resist taking a simple trade and turning it into a multi-team trade in which a bunch of draft picks change hands, can you?

    I don't like Porter at the 3 that much.

    Why? In that lineup itd be much easier to slide him onto guards if need be, since Dames big enough to guard some 2s and Hood can guard some 3s.

    I just think Meyers is more valuable on the market.

    It's gonna be hard as Hell to move Turner.

    I'm a fan of Turner too.. :twothumbs:
