    my belief is that neil olshey has spoken or will spoke with chauncey billups & dame lillard about some potential trades, first and foremost cj mccollum

    im sure hell ask guys what they think of siakam, simmons or harris, would they improve the team etc... maybe they want to keep cj mccollum, maybe theyd be open to a trade, who knows

    i just dont believe neil olshey would do such a big trade without talking to the head coach and franchise player

    Anyone remember Larry Nance Jr. tweeting about Kobe's rape case before he was drafted by the Lakers? Blazers might avoid him just because of that.

    I see Dragic kind of trashed Toronto in an interview. How about CJ, Jones, Little and Simons for Siakam and Dragic? They save $6 million and avoid having a guy on the team that doesn't want to be there. We would finally have a good pg to run the second unit.

    hmm what is his problem with Toronto? He is 35 so he has like two years left, tops. I don't know what his contract is though. I can't imagine Toronto would want CJ if they just signed Trent, however.

    Dragic want to play with his buddy Luka Doncic. Maybe a three team trade

    well. I don't think this is legal but ESPN trade machine let me do it: Dragic and Boucher to Dallas, CJ and Porzingis and Little to
    Toronto and Siakam to Portland.

    Sadly doesn't. Dragic can't be aggregated with other salary to match.

    he can on the 21st. cuz of this abbreviated offseason, that usual 2 month rule is only 19 days now.

    ive been waiting to make valanciunas trades in three ways-- his restriction for aggregation expires in a few days.

    I’m on the Nance wagon, it would be a blockbuster compared to our FA signings. DJJ/1st rounder should get it done. He plays a position of need and is locked up for 2 years at 10ish mil per. Sounds good to me.

    I'd rather trade 4 1st round picks for a star than one for a role player. And, I like Nance. Bucks went all in for Holiday. We should be doing the same thing for big time guys. Less so on the Robert Covington's of the world.

    You act as if both are an automatic option. Nance/Zeller would be a huge upgrade off the bench. We built leads consistently in the 1st quarter with our end of season lineup just for Melo/Kanter to throw out away. With a bench of Simons/Little/Nance/Zeller, we'd have a lineup that could build on leads or cut into deficits. Combined with the coaching upgrade, that could make a big difference.

    Bucks don't win without Bobby Portis. Clippers don't get to the WCF without Mann. Role players make a difference.

    I REALLY like Nance. He'd be a really good fit. However, he has some health issues which prevent him from playing too many minutes. I'm wondering if he would be able to bring it 100% in a 7 games series, for example.

    That would leave us with what, 5 roster spots open?

    That would be tempting for Olshey because he could keep his beloved CJ, but it would mean Powell would continue playing as a SF. Not ideal.

    It's like Neil just refuses to accept that Dame and CJ won't work.

    His interview after firing Stotts where he didn't mention CJ and finally admitted that the team needed a real second star had me thinking that he finally got it but I was either reading him wrong or he talked himself back into it.

    The problem with interviewing all of those coaches is that he had to have asked all of them if they could make the current roster work and I'm sure they all said yes because they want the job and hubris. Then they probably came up with really smart ways to maximize the roster as is, even though that still isn't going to get the job done. I could see those conversations resulting in Neil flipping back to the idea that he's cherished for so long that Dame and CJ can be the cornerstone of a championship roster.

    Hopefully it's all negotiation and we'll see a big CJ+ trade soon that nets us an all star forward that plays both ends of the court.

    Or it could be that he wanted to trade C.J. but couldn't find a deal that made any sort of sense.
