    So, how do you like this for a Miami fan's pipe dream of acquiring Dame to pair with Butler:

    The Hypothetical Trade

    Heat Receive: Damian Lillard, Nassir Little

    Trail Blazers Receive: Tyler Herro, Duncan Robinson, Kendrick Nunn, Andre Iguodala, Kelly Olynyk, 2022 1st Round Pick, 2024 1st Round Pick, 2025 1st Round Pick Swap, 2026 1st Round Pick

    https://www.nbaanalysis.net/2020/12...blockbuster-trade-forms-a-butler-lillard-duo/


    I'd say that the Blazers have better pieces to offer the Heat for Butler's services than the other way around.

    Replace Dame with CJ and peel back some Miami picks because CJ isn’t worth that many picks and I’m listening.

    Probably not. Mods can feel free to merge it with the Melo thread and make @THE HCP 's day.

    Yeah, I had the same thought, but it couldn't happen until after the season because our roster is already stacked with players.

    This would honestly be a pretty decent trade if we wanted to rebuild, which we do not.

    And this would have the Miami front office laughing at you for hours

    Are you on drugs?

    we get one serviceable player (Herro)
    And a bunch of shit first round picks
    And a worthless pick swap

    yeah, it's a terrible trade for Dame

    but it would be a great trade for CJ because the Blazers would be getting 4 decent players that would be great fits on the Blazer roster....Robinson, Herro, Nunn, Olynyk, plus some extra 1st's

    Any way you look at this the title of the thread should be "miami nightmare" (unless the idea was to post a dream scenario for another team which wouldn't make too much sense in a Blazers forum) because that original idea was absolutely terrible. More importantly there never should have been a thread @SlyPokerDog or whoever does this sort of thing, please merge with Trade Ideas.

    More than Olshey would be laughing at Riley for that Lillard “deal?” If we’re just spitballing, in my dream scenario the Blazers get the best of the trade and don’t trade Lillard for one promising PG and a bunch of garbage.

    The title was simply a shot at the guy who proposed the trade. Anyone who knows anything about Dame and about what Olshey has done to beef up the roster to make it competitive, would realize that it’s nothing but pure dreaming on that guy’s part to think that deal could happen. I started the thread because I thought it was humorous and I thought some people around here would get a chuckle out of it. The thread police crack me up. I would never put that in the trade ideas thread because I think the whole idea is moronic.

    If I’m Portland, I would want Butler too... In the words of the Rolling Stones, you can’t always get what you want.

    Oh my, it seems I need to read your entire posts. I just read the bold parts and thought it was your idea. Holy shit I'm an idiot sometimes. I was like, "I can't believe anyone especially @e_blazer would want this trade for us." Yikes, I don't mind the thread at all now that I'm paying attention because it's not an idea from anyone in here so it doesn't really belong in Trade Ideas. Great job with your thread sir and I'm a damn fool.
