    Holy Shit!!! This is fucking awful. Bledsoe and Winslow aren't even expiring contracts... we didn't get any bigger really. What the fuck?!?

    Bledsoe's contract is only fully guaranteed for $3M until June 26. Meaning if he doesn't get traded before deadline again he's getting dealt during draft to a team wanting to duck the tax.

    I guess it's official that we lost the Trent trade now.

    So we're helping out other teams with 2 of our only trade chips so we can

    *Checks notes*

    Miss the playoffs, which we were already doing. We didn't need to trade them for garbage. At least set us up for the future.

    Powell, imo, brings a better return than bledsoe will.

    I may have jumped the gun but holy shit this is a fucking moronic trade..

    Okay, I jumped it again. I can't help it. Initial reports (i.e. me) say this sucks lol

    Seriously, i want to know one rational reason why we do this deal outside of simply clearing long term salary. This can't have been the only offers out there.

    Does it make sense to deal CJ and keep Bledsoe? I'm trying to find a damn silver lining besides "we ducked the tax"

    At this point I would rather have Eddie Winslow. At least he looked like Zach Randolph.

    Our only two real trade chips and we just dumped them for scrap. and not even a pick.

    2025 second rounder from Detroit.

    Gotta be kidding me.

    Let's put an adult in charge of this rebuild, not this amateur.
