    Sure, if the cost is only Baze+Trent. No picks...

    What the heck are we doing at wing then? We'd miss Layman even more in that scenario.

    Picks would be the only reason they would trade him. Tons on teams in the East like Knicks and Raptors would pony up at least one unprotected pick.

    For Gallo? On an expiring deal? No way. The only reason Gallo was a part of the deal was pure salary reasons.

    He’s a good player (injury prone, but good) but he won’t fetch a pick.

    He’s not just an expiring like Baze or Turner, he’s still an elite scorer. Easily the 3rd best player on a title contender type guy.

    Nah, he isn’t a third guy on a championship team. He is definitely more of a Lamar Odom (before crack) piece.

    Danilo would make sense, but I think OKC holds out for now to get a late pick, maybe at the trade deadline we can get him for a second rounder. Also gives us time to decide if one of Whiteside/Baze don't fit.

    If the Clippers are healthy I don't see how we have much of a chance against them, their wings are so big and dominant on both sides of the ball. Strangely enough we actually could really use one of Aminu or Harkless in a series against them.

    Although the last two years one of George Kawhi has been hurt so its very plausible they aren't 100%

    So you want a go for it all, win now, power move.

    Make anyone not named Dame/CJ/ Nurk available for trade.

    Include a shopping cart of picks to trade for.....

    K Towns.

    K. Towns can play PF next to Nurk at center.

    Reports are, K Towns is not happy in Minny.

    Dame/CJ/?/Towns/ Nurk

    I got a power move for y'all

    Leonard+Harkless for Whiteside, guy would take our Defense to the next level, shore up the boards where we were lacking big time in the playoffs and be an excellent pick n roll partner for Dame.

    What!?!?!?! are you serious???

    I'm italian and i love Gallo, but there's no way he's better than KLove and Blake.

    He was ATROCIOUS against Golden State in the playoffs.
