    Yes, and I’m only worried about that part. He could be a big bad contract in 4 years. But really you need to take risks.

    I'm not on board for trading CJ to pay Butler (kinda injury prone) upwards of $35+ million per when he's a broken down Thibs player at 34 yeas old.

    I think we'd have to be willing to take Powell's contract (which went from looking like a steal to dead weight) along with Siakam. I'm not sure the Blazers would take on long term salary though unless it is a mega upgrade.

    Something like Aminu and Swanigan (or any one if our salary fillers) for Powell and Siakam might make sense for them. I don't know if that is really much of an upgrade though.

    Siakam is underrated. He's solid. Would be a good fit with KAT IMO.

    This is more a trade for next summer

    Plus our pick. Or a combo of firsts. Could sub Harkless for Leonard as well.

    This season is reminiscent of 14-15. We were high in the standings of the west until Wes went down and then GS blew up.

    We won't be able to catch GS, but a WCF spot is wide open this year. We need to make a move to definitively make the conference finals-- what's out there? An Arron Afflalo kinda move would obviously be horrific, but I think that had more to do with the personnel than the idea behind the trade. For the right kinda player, we should move Simons/Trent/Biggie/etc to take on some salary if needed.

    I really think big man depth behind Aminu would be useful. A star addition would be cool too.

    How about this trade Leonard, Harkless and Layman for Andrew Wiggins works in trade machine. Troubles in Minnesota could solve personnel issues and be a trade dump in salary for them over the next five years.

    If we are moving Simons or Trent then the return investment needs have long term potential. I wouldn't mortgage the future for just this year.
    Butler would fall under that prerequisite as we could potentially resign him, but I would prefer not moving Simons and Trent for someone to backup Aminu.

    I doubt Thibodeau would have much interest in Harkless. He would probably want Turner or CJ instead.

    Just throwing this out there....

    The perfect PF to groom alongside Zach Collins: Domantas Sabonis.

    Fight me.

    This is the trade. I think we could get Butler to stay. I think Minny would do it too.

    Dame, Butler, Chief, Zach and Nurk would be an amazing defensive starting lineup and oh they could score too.

    Cleary we should figure out how to deal Nurk for Kelly O and baby Sabas. Then we can have a 3-man all Zag frontcourt, and we'd be unstoppable!

    Well until they played against anyone from North Carolina, whom they would just foul a lot.

    That frontcourt would actually be a top 5 frontcourt in the league.
