    I'd rather go after a lower usage player than Derozan if we're gonna pair him with Dame/Simons/Aldridge.

    CJ for RoCo/Culver/Dieng. Get your starting 3 and your future 3. We take on $6 in salary this year although we can add a few of our minimum contracts to reduce the amount we take on. I offer this in a situation where Simons shows significant promise. Dieng extends one year beyond this season, allowing you to let you to let Whiteside walk. He comes off the books in the year that Dame starts his supermax, and you'll still have Covington at ~12M in that season, as well as Culver on his rookie scale.

    In my view, all of these trades built around CJ are a year premature. Simons has a bunch of actual game experience to get before he's ready for a starting role.

    what??????????? that's terrible value for us!!!!!!! NO WAY I'D DO THIS!

    Aldridge is nearly 35, DeRozan is an overrated chucker

    CJ alone has more value than those two combined.

    Nah, not if we're taking back Dieng.

    Having two guys at non-center positions that cant shoot next to Dame would be a nightmare.

    I appreciate Dame mending fences with LA, but I personally don't see how his game fits Portland's system. Last time I checked he liked the ball in isolation for long 2's. How does that work with ball movement and 3 point shooting?

    I think it makes sense for all 3 teams.

    Miami has to give up more because of their hard cap.

    I would bet money that at the end of this season, we are glad Simons got minutes, but also glad we didn't start him.
