    Hello darkness, my old friend
    Quick could be right that Olshey will be cleared but this report doesn't make any sense. Investigations that keep getting expanded are usually not a great sign for the people being investigated. Using that as a sign that everything's great for Olshey because "if there was anything there, it would have been found quickly and he'd have been fired immediately" isn't ever how I've seen these work. No investigation stops at the first firing offense just to wrap things up quickly--nearly every entity that launches an investigation wants a full and complete report to ensure they have the full story and to have an airtight case if the evidence points to firing.

    This just sounds like filler. We'll find out when the final report is issued, I guess.

    He got waived and stretched. That doesn't mean that the team is still paying him. He got paid his salary on the normal schedule as outlined by the contract and the cap hit got spread throughout more seasons than the original contract length.

    I don't put much weight in any of these reports including Quick's but I sure hope this one is right. We need to move on from Olshey. Give the new GM or more likely interim GM the power to make moves and get a piece in here in a trade for CJ that makes more sense with Dame, balances the roster and moves Powell back to his natural position.

    I know... As I said the cap hit got stretthed out. That doesn't mean the team is still sending him checks.

    ?

    All I'm saying is the team isn't actually paying him anymore.

    You're arguing something no one else is but they're over the cap so they couldn't spend it anyway. But again, all I'm saying is the team isn't still paying those guys, so I don't know what your arguing or what it has to do with that.

    I'm not saying anything about it mattering with roster construction or if it's moot or whatever... All I'm saying is the team isn't paying them anymore, that's IT. FFS.

    Fun (if pointless) game: come up with the best Blazers starting 5 that we COULD have had if
    (a) we'd taken the player who later turned out to be great instead of the Meyers Leonards/Zach Collins of this world, but
    (b) this somehow kept all our draft picks happening in exactly the same place anyway.

    My suggestion:
    PG: Dame (congratulations whomever picked him - we will never settle this)
    SG: Jalen Brunson (instead of Anfernee - this is the weak link)
    F: Giannis (instead of CJ)
    F: Draymond (instead of Meyers)
    C: Bam Adebayo (instead of Zach)

    Some great players, I'm not sure about the shooting though.

    Maybe Olshey can claim self defense.

    just about endless combinations (especially if Portland could delete the Afflalo trade)

    * Dame-Donovan Mitchell-Khris Middleton-Siakam-Giannis ....if you're worried about shooting(they'd still have Nurk to go big in all these fantasies)

    * Dame-Middleton-Siakam-Giannis-Adebayo

    * Dame-Middleton-OG Anunoby-John Collins-Giannis

    main thing is Dame + Giannis = dynasty

    This all stems from Julius's post that you replied too. He was getting at the fact there is still dead money on the books among other screw ups of Neil.

    He said we are still paying ex players. You contended we we weren't. What he meant was there was still dead money on the cap all these years later.

    That's what I was saying. I believe that was what OB was saying.
