    Now Charlotte has totally imploded, I wonder if they'd consider swapping Crabbe for MKG (plus Sessions, to make the salaries match).
    That would hurt us shooting-wise but improve our defense considerably.

    I'm hoping that is not true. If Chicago is going for a complete re-build, they won't want any 26 year old players.

    Damn, big time move for the Raptors. This makes them a serious contender. Look for ibaka to have a role similar to that in OKC with Russ and KD.

    The one thing I don't hear; not even the slightest hint that the might be going for the home run ball. Maybe I have over-estimated Olshey; maybe i really do think bigger than him!

    Good effort then. Still don't like Stotts idea for rotation.

    What would you have him do? Without Nurkic available, we were down a big against a team with a veteran front court. Every time Vonleh entered the game he picked up a quick foul. He had two 1st quarter fouls and picked up two more within the first 1:38 of the 3rd quarter and then picked up his 5th foul 13 seconds into the 4th quarter. Stotts tried to play him, but Vonleh was in constant foul trouble.

    Ed Davis also fouled out and Meyers also battled foul trouble (and couldn't make an open shot to save his life). Stotts played the hand he was dealt. Unfortunately, it was a pretty shitty hand. It's actually surprising this game was as close as it was.

    Yeah, I got you. Didn't check fouls earlier. I've just checked in the middle of the nite, that Vonleh had 10min and it was 4th already. Went back to sleep. I see what you sayin about this game. I just don't like Stots as a coach, that's it.

    They're called growing pains. If they're serious about developing Vonleh, they will play him through it.

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    I don't expect a ton from Vonleh, but I do think they should play him more. The only point left to this season is development and getting a better bead on what, if any, assets the team has outside of Lillard, McCollum and their first-round draft picks.

    That might require an assistant coach being carried on his back helping him avoid fouls. Maybe that's why Portland's big-man coach is so small.

    To have "Growing Pains" you need to show growth. With Vonleh, it's just pains...

    We don't really have much to offer for Drummond but he would be perfect here. New Orleans should explore that with their first round pick.

    So Blazers w/three 1st rd picks don't have much to offer for Drummond but the Pelicans w/one 1st do??? Where is your logic there buddy...

    Unless they are blown away they won't trade Drummond. I could see them moving Reggie Jackson definitely though. Not someone we want or need however.
