    Im gonna disagree Hood was getting almost 28 minutes a game on a terrible team and couldnt turn that into more than 12 points a game... He’s supposed to be a scorer. Barnes is a better scorer than Hood has been. Barnes paycheck is probably more than his production has been but I think were gonna figure out what Cleveland and Utah figured out.

    Just compare their true shooting percentages. Their efficiencies are pretty much identical.

    PER, BPM, VORP...all basically the same.

    Their statistics are very similar (least the advanced ones), but I think from watching Dallas games this year (because Luka’s awesome), Barnes has shown he can be an explosive scorer offensively he’s better then Hood is right now. I think he’s been pretty good this year. Not that I watch a ton of cleveland games but if he was going to do anything he obviously had the oppurtunity there and he just wasnt good...

    It obviously worked out for us handsomely. Lillard was a huge riser during the draft process. Barnes was talked about all year as a top 3 pick. Hell, some wanted TRob over Dame that year. Thankfully he was taken at 5.

    Wanting Barnes then wasn't as far fetched as it seems today. I sure as hell am glad we made the right pick.

    Why are Blazer fans so willing to overpay for mediocrity? Is it some kind of guilt tax for asking players to come to Portland?

    KingSpeed was a prophet. Barnes just needed some better players around him on the Warriors and sure enough...

    Barnes is a 1 or 2 option on the Mavs where as Hood is around 4rd or 4th option with the Cavs and not much help on that team this year to get him easier baskets.

    https://www.basketball-reference.co... Hood&y2=2019&player_id2=hoodro01&idx=players

    Barnes $24+ mil
    Hood $3.4mil

    For $21 mil a year difference I will take Hood all day long as the production isn't all that much different.

    I was a fan of Barnes in college, but always felt he never had that it factor for as high as he was drafted and his career has pretty much shown that. Barnes had the hoopla mainly because where he went to school. If Lillard would have gone to a major college program like NC he would have been touted higher than Barnes.

    Luka is far and away the number one option. Barnes would be the #1 option on Cleveland. The fact that hood couldn't be more than the 3 or 4th option on a team that bad should say something especially when his game, in theory, is to be a scorer. They brought Hood into Cleveland hoping he could be a scoring threat for them and that never really materialized. So Portlands bringing him in hoping the same thing. We can say oh he's playing with Dame now, and sure that might be a good point except Hood just played with a guy named Lebron last year...
    I get the salary stuff, Barnes is being paid a lot. I hope Hood does well he seems like an alright guy.

    and I said Barnes was either 1 or 2 option. Also, Hood only played about 20 games with James and that was with a late season trade so hard to put much stock in that and James is very ball dominant but Hood still averaged 11ppg. Last year with the Jazz Hood averaged over 16ppg.

    Is this not also a late-season trade. I hope he does well, but I'm not really sold on it. Guess we'll find out.

    What's not to be sold on it? We gave up nothing of real value and got a player back that has averaged almost 13ppg over his career.

    Well sure I liked the trade in general, you didn't give up much. I just don't know if you really got much back either. I'm not sold he actually makes the Blazers better, at least enough that's meaningful.

    There is a reason both GS & SA were interested in Rod. The fact we didn't give up much to get a player of his caliber is a good thing too.
    Like with all trades time will tell and something else may happen?

    Once again, we fail to acquire him. Now we have neither Lillard nor Barnes. .
