    If Fischer is right and we try to sneak into the playoffs and are successful -blow the entire team up in the offseason.

    1 A mediocre pick.. I don't place much value on the Clippers pick - similar to Larry Nance/Roco picks just not worth much
    2 Saving tax/ full MLE - the team can move around vet minimums to get under the tax and the full MLE gets us DJJ players, not much value
    3 TPE - these have so little value they are worth less than a second round pick
    4 Just let Roco/Nurk walk and sign him now, no flexibility needed
    5. Similar deal with Roco to NY.... if you think Powell with 4.5 guarateed years on a great deal is worth 1 medicore pick would Roco on 0.5 years be worth even a crappy second rounder?

    I'm following your train of thought fine to the point you expressed it in words. I just totally disagree with your idea that trading Powell for a weak Clippers pick is a smart decision; in fact I think its exceedingly stupid.

    Totally agree! Morris is a great comp.

    I have long thought that Boston was the best place to send him.

    Cut Boston out of it, trade CJ for Simmons.

    If we acquire Simmons why are we trading Dame for Brown?

    Amick is reporting teams are getting scared off Simmons because of his contract. 100M + assets for a guy that teams allegedly aren’t completely sold on as a franchise player.

    I kind of want Simmons to stay put after the trade deadline just for the shitshow that will cause in Philly.

    If the Lakers are looking at acquiring CJ it has to be for Westbrook.

    Basically we'd be tanking this year and next year? I'd want all sorts of unprotected picks from the Lakers. They owe their 2024 to NOP, so max they could give up is all four of;
    2025 1st round swap
    2026 1st round pick
    2027 1st round swap
    2028 1st round pick

    No CJ isn't worth all of that, but maybe he is worth two of those.

    Damn I'd really hate having Westbrook but love the idea of having unprotected Lakers picks. This probably makes more sense if we are going to trade Dame to another team and just push all in on the rebuild.

    If the Blazers still want to try and win with Dame next year there probably needs to be a 3rd team involved getting us something for Westbrook. Maybe send him back to OKC, send SGA to Philly, Simmons to us, and OKC gets 5 more draft picks.

    Houston doesn’t want Wood and he doesn’t want the Rockets - that’s an issue.
    I do see my mistake trading Wood twice! LOL

    my main objective in all of that trade fiasco was this:

    1. get rid of CJ’s contract now -
    2. get something out of Nurkic or we wind up getting nothing -
    3. same with RoCo

    if we can get rid of CJ, RoCo and Nurk and now with Dame out (most likely for the year) we should simply take this opportunity to begin the rebuild.

    Quick threw out Powell and McLemore for Grant as an idea on the athletic. Here’s what the pistons beat writer said

    That seems a reasonable/fair deal to me, we need to fix our glut of small guars ad get wing defenders, this works

    Fischer suggesting McCollum and Powell both could be available and will have a market if so. He specifically mentioned New Orleans. Dunno what they would offer but they have a lot of picks.

    Please @god

    that would be an obvious move from both sides, one i've been saying since powell got signed. i got sidetracked into thinking powell could not be traded until next season, which was misguided. but it's interesting to read a pistons guy agree that Powell and Grant are in the same tier. I've been beating that drum for a while now.

    LOL.

    so much for a top 10 pick for reddish. Keep an eye on what the Hawks do with that pick. They can't be done yet.

    But I had seen NY as a potential RoCo destination-- this move removes that possibility.

    But Kevin O’Connor, nba expert, said reddish shouldn’t be traded for anyone less than Ben Simmons?
