    first, I know it's not an either/or

    but if the Blazers had a chance at a trade that might make them a legitimate contender, and they had to include one of Nas or Ant, which player would you trade?

    Nas. I think Ant has progressed a ton this season, but to me Nas has the higher ceiling.

    sorry for the kind of confusing option. The poll isn't which player to keep but which one to trade

    I'd keep Nas as well...which is why I voted Simons. Again, make sure you vote for the player you'd trade away

    Nas. Reminds me of Jerome Kersey on Super Soldier Serum.

    Ant, as we he's not a versatile as Naz, at this point anyway.

    Easily Simons, even if we didn't have our roster construction issues.

    I like both but chose to keep Nas. One yr more of cheap salary and plays a tougher to fill position in the NBA - SF. Becoming a solid defender, very good rebounder and think his offense can continue to improve. Can see him as a 15-18 PPG/8 rebs, 38% 3pt shooter with good defense.

    Yes, I'd easily move Simons over Nas.

    Little has an extremely high ceiling. Now that he’s finally getting playing time I could see him even really breaking out to Borderline All-Star levels in the next few seasons. I could see him becoming a starter this year even.

    Including Ant may not work in that scenario. Does a team want to trade us a forward/center for two shooting guards? I get one is older and the other is young.
    Certainly possible but unlikely. The more likely scenario is both Nas and Ant (and RoCo or Nurk) for stud forard.

    But yeah, I like Ant a lot, but shooters are a little easier to find than a 2-way SF like Nas. We have been looking for one since Batum.

    Ant has the skillset that every team looks for in the draft.

    Now if only he can put it together and stay consistent.

    The question in the poll is "Which player would you trade?" not who you'd keep.
