    I mean this in an appreciative way, but Ed looks like he's been photoshopped to look swole.

    I say yes, keep the Beast. We should acquire a collection of Bosnian players. Since we sent Vonleh away for cap space we could very well have international flavor on this team.

    I'm thinking 3 yrs 50 mil. Hopefully, closer to 42-45.

    It gives him a solid $ amount. And it keeps him on line with Dame/CJ so all three have expiring contracts the same season.

    Just want to see Nurk re-signed, and development continued with the Blazers.

    We need him for sure. He is a key part of this teams future. Can easily say that now.

    It's no coincidence the Blazers' defense has improved this season with Nurk playing most of the games.

    Cream Biggums is not one to be messed with, his creamy crossover is flawless and you have to respect his step back because of his speed.

    He's not a max contract player.

    I don't know why all of a sudden everybody thinks being decent is enough to get a max deal. It's like 2016 free agency has completely changed everyone's perception of who deserves a max contract.

    It's great to see a kid shoot the lights out. The only problem with a feature vid is that it does not show his downside. For example, I did not see his rebounding skillset. If he got here and actually plays for us, he would be relegated to a bench warmer in his first season. Thanks for the vid. I was impressed with his basketball awareness and confidence. Pinwheel Knows! D Musa looks like a potential fit once we dump Turner.

    Hopefully we could sign him at 3 years @45m. If he wants longer contract go less.
    I think within 3 years he will either be a for sure max or not.

    Yeah there are some question marks for sure, as with all 18 year olds, but for where we are picking he certainly needs to be scouted by Blazer management. I just mentioned him because of your post about loading up with Bosnian players.
