    I'm just trying to think of what the hell we can do personnel wise to even get assets now. CJ has to be traded to salvage this at all, and now I've lost hope Cronin can get fair value for him.

    One of the worst trades in Blazer history

    I'm gonna need to hit the trade machine and see if I can find a trade for CJ that's even less productive and more nonsensical than this Powell/RoCo deal.

    So as an expiring does he bring back anything of real value next year? Must be the only reason to do this is to bolster the run at next deadline when dame is back.

    If bledsoe is even here.

    True. He's a ball-handler, slasher and defender, but very much not a shooter.

    Hey, give me some credit--at least I'm trying to find an upside!!

    THIS is why Ainge should’ve been the guy.

    Cronin is clueless!

    We have to guarantee his deal to be able to trade him. Do you want to risk guaranteeing Bledsoe at 19 mil with a potential to get nothing back for him?

    There is no upside. We are no longer a tax team.

    Who's up for a protest at Moda?

    Yeah, people hated the afflalo trade (wrongly, of course) but this one is unequivocally awful, only saving grace is somehow packaging Bledsoe with someone to bring back a good piece.

    OH WAIT WE COULD HSVE DONE THAT WITH POWELL AND ROCO FMGDL.

    Dame must be excited we avoid the tax. We only lost two good pieces in the meantime and got nothing back. Surely we will be win now mode next season with Keon Johnson and Winslow right?
