    This is why I’m starting to lean towards Daniels.

    I think a guy that bring something the team doesn't right now, like Daniels with his passing or Sochan with his size and defense would provide something good right away.

    Daniels with his passing/defense would be a great fit. Too bad he isn't 2 years farther along. He would tremendously compliment the rest of the team without needed a bunch of shots. Nurk/GrAnt/Dame are going to take plent of shots as it is.

    This dude is a weirdo, guy talks more about Nurkic (and thus the Blazers) than Nurkic’ own mother. Clear something happened in Denver and his bitch ass never let it go.

    For sure. He definitely has something personally against Nurk and thus the Blazers. Ever since the Nurk trade he has always hated on the Blazers. He even blocked me on Twitter for saying that it was a good trade for Nurkic to get a new opportunity with the Blazers.

    same here, but I wasn’t as friendly lol. If you search his name and Nurkic on Twitter it’s wild. Just years and years of nonsense. It’s 100% personal.

    Just take Sochan at 7 instead of OG. He'll be just as good and a lot cheaper in a year or 2. Besides, there's not much of a chance they can do enough this off-season to become contenders that quickly. So why not trade back a couple spots and take Sochan.

    Yeah, I think it's wrong. The only guy that has shown that he can't handle the role he sometimes needs to take is Nurk. Grant has been the third option before, as has OG, Ant was coming off the bench at the beginning of the year. I've never heard one of Ant, Grant and OG being unprofessional. I haven't even seen their efforts wane when their usage went down. We've seen that from Nurk. We've also seen Grant effort lessen when Detroit was noncompetitive but not because of usage in Denver... he worked his ass off as a role player but I guess I get it if people want to assume that he thinks he's a star now even though he's never said that. I guess he wants his salary to be in the 23-25M range and that would imply he sees himself as more than just an average starter. I think Dame and Chauncey can make it work and the only guy who has ever been toxic is our guy Nurk and hopefully Dame and Chauncey have a handle on that by now.

    He actually said, “Marang says”, not “Morang says”.

    If we do get OG, it might make sense to move Nurk for a more athletic, defensive minded center because I don't think the tweet is too far off.

    IF.....Portland ended up with Dame/Ant/OG/Grant.....someone like Duren to run around, rebound, switch out, block shots, and dunk everything in site, might not be bad.
