    Would you give up Harkless + first & maybe Collins for 1 year of Melo?

    Not Collins. NYK isn't in position to bargain. And who else would we trade out in that deal? The salaries don't match.

    The deal I'd want is Harkless, Davis, Vonleh, Napier, Layman, and Connaughton for Anthony, O'Quinn, and Lee (TPE). I think that makes sense for both sides. NYK gets valuable young pieces in Harkless and Vonleh, and could take a flier on Napier, Layman, and Connaughton. Davis is expiring. They'd have apx. $45M in cap space next year to add talent around Porzingas, Hardaway, Harkless Ntilikina, Vonleh, and Hernangomez. That's a pretty good start to a rebuild.

    The other trade I'd try is Harkless, Leonard, Davis, and a 2018 1st for Anthony and Lee. Sheds Meyers contract and if Anthony doesn't return it saves us about $8M next year, without losing a rotation player in the end(Harkless and Lee are rotation players, while Leonard and Davis aren't needed). Next year's draft isn't that special so losing the pick doesn't matter either.

    We could still be good by using our full MLE to sign a SF. Vonleh, Swanigan, and Collins would also be a year further in their development.

    Harkless + Pat + Collins + Davis + future protected first vs Melo
    I've always liked Lee a lot + it's a position of need for Portland. TPE vs Lee & the protections come off that pick.

    Maybe I'm giving up too much idk

    I wouldn't give them Collins. They already have Porzingis and Hernangomez as their power forward and center of the future. So, it's not like they NEED Collins.

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    I edited it when it happened. He saw it because he has mod powers to see pre-edit. Or maybe he saw it before I edited it. I dunno.

    I guess what I'm saying poorly I might add.
    Is it a deal breaker for this forum if NY ask for Collins + Harkless + 2018 first rounder.

    I'd be banned after one post.

    It's not like that forum is open to enlightenment. I thought the whole point of discussion boards was to discuss things. Guess not. That place just seems like the world's largest online circle jerk where everyone sits around agreeing with each other and attacking en masse anyone that disagrees with them.

    Their lack of historical perspective makes OKC fans look sophisticated. They think we "owe" them facilitating a Melo to HOU trade because they gifted us Scottie Pippen. I guess they have forgotten they would not have won a second championship if we'd hadn't gifted them Clyde. If anyone "owes" anyone anything for something that happened in the ancient pass, it is HOU that should be trying to facilitate a Melo to POR trade. Fucking morons.

    I think it's a deal breaker if they demand it. They can ask for it as a starting point and Neil can fire back with a counter offer sans Collins.

    Nope. I'm just hiding in there as one of the cucks.
    The only hint I'll give is that my nom de guerre is into early 90's R&B.

    Well that photo makes one thing perfectly clear - why you're the replay guy and not a camera operator.

    Seriously, what the fuck is that supposed to be, Airport by Picasso?

    Ah yes. Very cubist. Surreal. Taken during his crystal period. Also some other things I read on Picasso's wikipedia.
