    Please fix this poll question, which should be "re-sign," not "resign." The latter means to leave a position whereas the former means to re-establish a position. The hyphen here makes for opposite meanings. I think with improvements gained by coaching Nurk can and will remain with the Blazers.

    If we don't trade him I think he re-sign with the Blazers due reason he like Portland and he very closed to Dame.

    Fuckk this means Elleby is gonna see point guard minutes. I’d like to see Brown start getting minutes. We’re essentially tanking, why not

    Btw we can sign someone to a ten day since Powell is out. Why don’t we pick up a guard especially with dame and CJ also out?

    Nas and CJ Elleby will have Norm's minutes ..Dennis Smith Jr and Ant and Ben Mclemore will have Dame's and CJ's minutes...my guess...we don't need a guard and I like Watford getting some burn in Nance's absence. Rather see bench players that might stick on the team get some chemistry than rent a vet at this point in the season...the Faried and Beasley summer league showed me enough of that.

    Ant isn’t playing. That means we have one point guard.
