    idk, all I know is we got better. And unlike the Roco trade, it wasn’t an overpay nor did it cost us a good young player like the Powell one.

    I wonder if there was any discussion re the large amount of cap space the Pistons will now have? Like, we will throw in an add'l 2nd round pick as long as you don't make an offer to Ant or Nurk?

    The more realistic option is Collins. But that is sexi, in parallel universe land lol.

    I don't get the OG obsession....he's played in 43 and 48 games the last two seasons. Rather take a swing on someone with the #7 pick then hold my breath all season hoping OG doesn't get hurt again.

    Yeah, the most genius part of this move is now we have the leverage with anyone calling about the 7th pick... and there will be a lot of calls about it. Seriously, the 7th pick already had very good trade value but that value just went up because of the Grant trade.

    There already are two different timelines: Dame and everyone else.

    Oh I agree, I'm just saying the data is incomplete.

    It's a little premature for some of these boners to come in here like they just won their Magic the Gathering tournament.

    They will go after Ayton or Bridges, not Ant. They already have their Point Guard in Cunningham

    New Blazers GM Joe Cronin has overhauled the Blazers roster, and now moves toward making his first draft pick at No. 7 on Thursday night.
    - Woj

    Is he saying we’re keeping the pick?

    I had a meeting for an hour and this happens. I just need to step away full time and maybe we'll make a bunch of nice moves.

    It still kinda feels like they're trying to squeeze someone. Not sure who the target is though.

    An actual decent trade from Cronin? Almost had a heart attack thinking it was our 7th pick.

    We were all fine with moving 13 or whatever pick we got from NO for Grant. Now we sent a lesser pick back for Grant. This is a win for Cronin. Lessens the pain of NO making the playoffs in that stupid deal.
