Small ball 3 guard lineups can be high scoring basketball, but tend to get pummeled throughout the course of the year. Losing is good during a rebuild. Maybe Brogdon is totally down with faking injuries, sitting the final 15 games, and help the Blazers lose for the lottery? Cronin likes expensive Blazers like Brogdon. By forfeiting nationally televised games, a Blazer team that flirts with luxury tax creates massive revenue kickback for Jody Allen. The owner is happy, so Blazer fans should cheer up. Cronin's only job this year was duck the tax. A simple waiver and buyout of Timelord will produce enough cap space to sign all the new rookies and keep team revenue at maximum.
