    Agreed.

    it was just tossing a flipped coin out there.

    the reality is i read many people on here just railing on Cronin hard.
    He is still interim Gm and said ownership must sign off on deals.
    To me this screams as an ownership push and he had directive to make this happen.
    We have no clue if he was forced into Jodi’s puppet or not on this.

    Im firmly in the wait and see camp still.
    I think this team will be MUCH different starting next season.

    If Joe has another deal planned, it seems like it should have been wrapped up already; cuz you don't make a bad deal like this and then find out the second deal isn't going through.....

    Well Bledsoe is a Rich Paul client. Now, we have Nurk/Ben Mac/Bled, and (effectively) Chauncey all repped by Klutch.

    Exactly. I see a huge shedding of salary coming and looking much different heading into next year. Whether for better or worse, i think this is the first of several moves at minimum.

    But for the 175949th time, we can't package Bledsoe with any other players in a deal...

    There a lot crying in here about this trade. My opinion it did for us it got us below the cap and everyone in here probably new that was going happen. We moving to players actually didn't fit Billups system. Roco was not lock down defender and neither was Powell. Roco had 2 or 3 week there he had his offense going on but besides he been pretty bad. Powell offense was decent more often then not. Now all 3 of these players had better defense stats then those 2 but matter these would be leading or close leading us in that category. Keon probably will be the only with us next maybe winsole will be with next year. Got people already saying Keon has no skill but he athletic well I can remember that most of young guys didn't sit the world on fire for until about the 3rd year so we will see that going to pan. But let see how they fit into Billups system because it seems right now they more lock down defender then everyone we got right now. The only I know fit in that category right now for is Little.

    The Blazers turned down a 1st round pick and a $15.5M TPE from New Orleans just so they could throw in Robert Covington into the trade because we really wanted a 6'3 guard with a 8'1 standing reach who's years away from helping Dame. GREAT.

    And some of the same people that complained about Olshey drafting 6'3 guards who weren't on Dame's timeline (i.e. Anfernee Simons) now all of a sudden are happy with this move? If Olshey made this move they would've been blasting it for his love of 6'3 guards!!! Give me a break!

    Did you watch this before or after picking up your pitchfork?

    it doesn't change the fact that we got 25 cents on the dollar in this move while making a conference rival better in the process.

    what the fuck are you talking about?...wait...I know...it's straw man 101

    name one person who 'complained' about Olshey stocking the roster with six players 6'3 and under who is happy with this trade. Name just one.

    fuck Neil Olshey...he was a shit GM and the architect of this crappy unbalanced roster. Just because Cronin may very well be an idiot GM does not make Olshey a better one

    People talking about the Clipps now being odds on favorites may well be the worst part of this trade. If Cronin can swing things so the Blazers are right there next year great, but otherwise it feels like bowing out of the top half of the conference for Dame's remaining tenure.
