Yes, another trade thread, so go on your tirades about too many trade threads.
I feel like he has effectively sabotaged his trade value. I don't see anyone taking him off our hands.
Damn, sounds likely but I hope you're wrong....
Would any team take him next week while still hurt?
Maybe, I mean calf strain may not be a deal breaker assuming complete physical etc. Slight decrease in value I guess.
Doesn't seem like a problem to me.
Anyone know when OG is supposed to return to action?
The teams that I've heard connected to Nurk:
We aren't getting anything good from those teams though. Dallas has a bunch of salaries but they're all mediocre players. Charlotte could maybe trade Oubre + Kai Jones + some other small salary, or Oubre + Plumlee. Pretty meh but kind of interesting.
Toronto needs a center, but they aren't trading any of their good wings for Nurk. It'll be like Boucher + Otto Porter or Boucher + Thad Young.
I doubt that a calf strain is not going to sabotage his trade value any more than OG being injured....again.
Nurk is expected back in another 7 games after a nice rest.
I'm not sure they'll sell low on Nurk...I'd guess off season if they move him but they pretty much will need a better center back in return and that's not easy to find Ant might bring you a center but they seem attached to the kid.
I only voted yes because I'm hoping but I actually don't believe my own bullshit. Hahahaha!
What does that remind you of?
If the Last Of Nurk is half as good as the Last Of Us we'll have no problem trading him.
Some players get hurt right before the trade deadline
If I'm Chauncey I'd give Nurk the Roco treatment and bring him off the bench....start Drew and see if he accepts the bench role or whines his way out of Portland until he proves he's willing to run with the pack and stay engaged....in the words of Chauncey....put an address on it
I was saying that it is his play, not his health, that has diminished Nurk's trade value.
hopefully, its for the best
PORTLAND, Ore. (February 3, 2023) – Jusuf Nurkic left Wednesday night’s game at Memphis in the first quarter with a left calf injury and did not return. An MRI conducted on Thursday revealed a left calf strain.
Nurkic is expected to return after the All-Star break.
Dammit, there goes his chance to play in the all star game.
Can he still participate in the rising stars game?
