    * and a meager swap.

    Ed you’re right that the conversation from Heat fans tends to be around the max package not being that bad.

    the reality is that Riley hasn’t put either of the young guys or caleb on the table—and it’s unclear whether herro would fetch anything better than Herro himself.

    So where are you holding Ujiri after you kidnap him and force him to agree to this trade?

    TOR not dealing Barnes probably not OG either. I don’t think they want Lillard. The only team that openly desires him is MIA

    If OG tells him he don't wanna resign in Toronto (i don't know this, just thinking of a scenario) he's as good as gone. They need a PG. Getting Herro, Jovic, and a pick is not bad

    Maybe for OG, but not for Barnes too, right?

    “Let’s run it back one more time and just see what this looks like in February.”
    - Every owner now in the parity era.

    I doubt Masai trades anyone.

    Surprised there hasn't been any rumors on this deal, makes realistic sense for both teams, and is one of the only Dame trades that's possible as a straight up two team deal. Ringer article had us getting picks but I'd probably settle to pull the trigger for Barnes and whatever salaries Toronto wants to dump. Barnes has by far the highest player value of any that have been rumored. I'd want us to either get him, or get a package of 4-6 great unprotected picks/swaps many years out.

    Well it's not an accident, but I doubt it's because Toronto's making overtures. I think it's simply because pretty much everyone knows that their roster and assets are the best fit for a Dame deal.

    If there are rumors he won't report, then no team will take a chance. I hope he isn’t traded and won’t report here TBH. Maybe we can see team BB for once with Scoot at the point.

    I see a lot of people dismiss Scottie Barnes as a possibility like we're not dealing with Damian Lillard here.

    Do you mean people dismiss Barnes as he is more valueable than Dame? Or dismiss Barnes as Dame is worth more?

    Dismiss the idea that we could ask for him in return for Dame.

    "Toronto is never gunna do that."

    Or suggest the idea of getting Barnes and call it a pipe dream.

    In my opinion, when it comes to Dame, Scottie Barnes sbould not be off-limits

    can somebody point me to any link saying Toronto actually has interest in Dame? I'm not saying they don't, but it just seems to be fantasy league at this point

    I just am not convinced TOR is in "win over the next two years" mode. Clearly with Pascal it fits, but what would their roster look like if they gave up just one of their young wings? Are Dame and GTJ a good fit? I just see in my mind's eye GTJ standing still clapping his hands for the ball and smh.

    I think it makes sense on Toronto end if they can lock up Pascal and OG prior to a Dame trade, and their owners are ok paying some tax. That is a team with Pascal/OG/Dame some other nice vets in Poetl/etc that can really contend.

    But if they can't lock up Pascal/OG first or those guys insist on holding out for supermax it probably doesn't make sense for them to trade for Dame. They wouldn't want to trade for Dame now then have to pay 3 guys supermax or have one of those guys walk and be stuck paying Dame $60 million as a non contender and Barnes gone.
