    Simmons would be nice fit next to Nance! If we can’t get Simmons I worry about trading CJ I don’t see a lot of options for guys who can create their own shot. Regardless looking forward to this year

    I don’t think any of your Tier 1 teams are infallible. Lakers got worse. Jazz showed weakness in playoffs. Chris Paul is old. I’m not saying we’ll be the #1 seed. But top 4 is absolutely possible.

    They signed-and-trade for Derozan. That's different. Chicago also gave up the 8th overall pick in this years draft which is likely worth 3 or 4 of our late 1sts. Nance is better for this team than Derozan would've been. I don't get what your point is here.

    Interesting, I glad we got Nance. I just hope he can stay healthy and play a full season.

    So, once again, Olshey's best moves turn out to be accidental (see Nurk).

    While we're dreaming, let's dream BIG:

    It's a dream, so it doesn't have to be plausible, but if I was trying to find a rationale for the Clippers: Paul George doesn't want to waste a year waiting for Kawhi to get healthy so demands out... and also hates Doc Rivers.

    He made an unsuccessful offer, then shifted gears and got a third team involved, and made a deal for a different but similar player. That doesn't seem like an accident to me.

    As much as I am not on the NeO hate train as some I will admit NeO seems to have a weakness for trying to revive careers of busts see Mo Harkless , Giles and I am sure I am missing a couple others but you get the point. As much as the reward for doing so can be high sometimes you can miss out on something better or more stable and very possible the Blazers have cause of this weakness but again I could be wrong.

    to suggest, non ironically, that a GM would accidentally acquire a player is a pretty funny joke though.

    I think Aminu qualifies. Maybe even Plumlee and Turner were borderline busts/scrubs when they got to Portland.

    It's another damned if he does, damned if he doesn't. If he dumpster dives for past high potential players to see if you can catch a breakthrough, it's dumb. If he wastes a roster spot on aging vets like McLemore, Tolliver, etc., he's dumb.

    Could have saved a lot of time by just stating the fact: he's dumb.

    There was a thread. Immediately once it was announced. 23 pages long now. What’s the fake news?
