    Nance is a plus defender, can play small ball center, and can be used as a facilitator as he’s a plus passer.

    Sound like anyone Dame has wanted to play with?

    This is a backup big that will play the minutes Melo played for us last year. Excitement is warranted.

    He certainly is an athletic big man, you can't argue that.

    Just imagine that they were firsts like Meyers Leonard or Nolan Smith.

    That's the spirit! Now you can feel happy we don't have those picks.

    This absolutely fills a position of need. And means I don't have to watch DJJ in a Blazers uniform again. It's not moving us into contender status, but it's a positive move.

    This means CJ is staying and we're not going after Simmons.

    Some things are better left unsaid.

    This motherfucker Olshey actually did it. He made a move a majority of us wanted to make. Maybe it was just so obvious even he couldn’t miss it.

    it will be tricky but not impossible, just need to compensate to remove protections, etc. Hell, we'll prolly convey it to CHI next June anyway.

    How does that make anything I said untrue?
    Besides, I'd guess closer to 30, just because he can have all the minutes at 4 and 5 that don't go to Nurk or RoCo. There's literally NOBODY ELSE.

    I really like this trade for the Blazers -- tad concerned over his injury history tends to get a little nicked up but I would give this trade AS of now -- B +

    I wish Jones the best in Chicago but I think the fact the Blazers picked up 2 cheap SG/SF type players this kind of signaled the end of Jones in PDX
