This is the quote. I don't think it's quite what the same meaning as "we didn't get what we wanted".
So we didn't get the guys he had his eye on. Okay....
I commend Dame for always being positive about whomever Portland has. Meyers, Tolliver, ET, Mario....whomever. That's great.
lol how dare anyone accuse you of pushing a narrative though.
Because it's just stupid. Of course it's very unlikely that any two-way player would end up helping the team in a tangible way but this guy has no business being anywhere near an actual NBA roster. It's a joke.
It was his birthday.
I'm 99% sure Dame called in a favor.
Maybe we weren't going to use this two way spot and he is going to practice, take care of, quarantine, etc with Dame? Almost like an assistant coach.
As long as we can cut/sign new two way later I'm fine with it... (or if it was actually basketball driven)...
there is no other logical reason. He's gonna get paid 450k for being Dames cousin.
that actually makes me wonder; since contracts of two way guys are a flat rate this season, would they get paid the 450k even if they got cut?
Youre gonna need to find a new island btw.
My guess is the team will invite a couple of guys to training camp and if one of them stands out they’ll get the other two way. That’s what happened last season at least. Dunno how a guy is gonna make an impression this year.
It's incredible how a terrible player just made 400k out of nowhere.
Pretty sure this makes McCollum obsolete.
I'm just glad its a two-way. Seems like in years past a guy like that would come in and get one of the 15 roster spots.
Failed CEOs get more than that in severance pay though...that's the real crime...get paid to fail...this kid hasn't failed yet..he might but then again....we'll find out
I'll root for the underdog until they give me a reason not to....this kid's a Blazer....I hope he rocks the house!
The kid has a history with the team regardless of who his cousin is. Sure that probably had something to do with it but he also played summer league, training camp as a rookie and I think was one of the last cuts? Hope he does well.
Why hasn’t the team announced
I wish I was Dame's cousin.
