    Yeah, going to miss Ed Davis as he was a fun player to watch and enjoyed his effort every night. As for Hezonja, I would rather have Ghandler or Beasely.

    I am willing to bet that ZCo plays starting PF and backup C. This leaves no real use for Ed.

    We already got a $10m/year guy for that position. Try again.

    When this kid gets beasted in the post and picks up quick fouls every damn game, you'll realize how much we will miss Ed. I know you know this.

    I said this afternoon. @jlprk seems to think something as simple as calling and offering the Tax-MLE is a waste of time.

    I get what you're saying, HJ; but there's a certain frustration at being so middling and hogtied and watching while others improve around you.

    Watching those around you get better during free agency is what has happened pretty much every year forever. Blazers have never been able to attract much in the way of free agents.

    The only rationale for losing Davis is because we're trying to duck the hard-cap by acquiring someone in a sign-and-trade or because we're using our full-MLE.

    Three words describe the Trail Blazers best

    Or the way I've spoken of them for the last 24 hours: "No fucking way"

    So because the Knicks signed Hezonja we are doomed? As of right now we have 15 roster spots accounted for. I'm not claiming that's a good thing but I've been saying for a week that being patient will pay off this summer.

    Nah. I think Hezonja is garbage and furthermore think the fact that he was on Neil's radar is a bit worrisome (although not surprising). And Staukus is actually laughable. Letting Ed walk feels foreboding, and there's this sense of unease (mostly from Dame), and while there's this general notion that Olshey wants to trade and improve the team, it seems typically we get the "it takes two to tango" refrain and the rumors of almost deals which I think we can all agree don't improve the team while it seems many teams are improving...

    I've been patient since 1993.

    I was wondering if Woj dropped a #fakenews Woj bomb just so the follow-up guys ("Yup, my source confirmed Woj was right") would get outed hard.

    Feeding to Neil's narrative that FAs don't want to come to Portland.

    Maybe it's Neil they don't like, and not Portland?

    Hezonja wants to start, so the Blazers were out of the question. Bad fit for the Blazers anyway. So it totally fits the Neil playbook.

    This is like the third false alarm on this board. The first two were not funny and were worthy of a suspension. Now Woj goofs up. At this rate, if someone posts a real trade or signing no one is going to believe it.

    Woj trolling hard. Hezonja is great.
