    So, I've been wondering what C.J.'s perceived trade value is. Just how much do you think we could get back in a trade for him? Are deals like these too much in return for CJ or is this what his value is?

    I think we're going to need to trade him at some point, and hope that we're able to get a borderline top 5 pick. If we got the 6th and 12th picks from one of these deals we could possible trade them up to 3 and land Doncic, Bagley, or Porter... That'd be the start of something.

    So here's some deals. Which ones do you think accurately reflect CJ's trade value? Which one's would you pursue? Which ones would have a chance at happening?

    PHI Gets: C.J. McCollum
    POR Gets: J.J. Redick, 2018 LAL 1st (Top 5 Protected) or 2019 SAC 1st (Top 3 Protected)

    CLE Gets: C.J. McCollum,
    POR Gets: Jae Crowder, Iman Shumpert, Cedi Osman, BKN 1st

    NYK Gets: C.J. McCollum
    POR Gets: Tim Hardaway Jr., 2018 & 2020 NYK 1sts

    CHA Gets: C.J. McCollum, Ed Davis, Al-Farouq Aminu
    POR Gets: Jeremy Lamb, Malik Monk, Cody Zeller, Marvin Williams, 2018 CHA 1st

    MIA Gets: C.J. McCollum, Ed Davis,
    POR Gets: Justice Winslow, Kelly Olynyk, Wayne Ellington, Bam Adebeyo, Filler, 2018 MIA 1st (Conveyed If between 2-7), (Protection Backup 2019)

    3rd Team Gets: C.J. McCollum
    LAC Gets: 2020 POR 1st, Young pieces from 3rd team and POR
    POR Gets: Blake Griffin

    BKN Gets: Jonas Valancuinas
    TOR Gets: C.J. McCollum
    POR Gets: OG Anunoby, Norman Powell, Trevor Booker 2018 TOR 1st (via BKN), 2020 TOR 1st

    ORL Gets: C.J. McCollum, Meyers Leonard
    POR Gets: Evan Fournier, Bismack Biyombo, 2018 Right to Swap w/ ORL (Unprotected) - (If no swap, POR gets ORL 2019 1st)

    UTAH Gets: C.J. McCollum
    POR Gets: Alec Burks, Joe Johnson, Rodney Hood, 2018 UTA 1st

    Nurkic is 23 and can be part of a rebuild.
    Lillard's leadership would be extremely valuable, and you can't trade away him. He's still 27, and hopefully a McCollum trade would get good enough young players that could have a KAT/Porzingis type of quick impact and we could be competitive by the time he's 30. If not, maybe explore trading him down the road, but not now.

    Keep Dame, trade nurk and CJ.

    Dame has more intrinsic value that can't be brought back via trade.

    I wonder what a trade with both Nurk AND CJ would bring back? Could we get a team to offer up enough for both?

    Can understand trading CJ but Nurk makes zero sense

    Somebody mentioned CJ for Aaron Gordon a few days back (BGD?) and most people made fun of him and mocked him.

    I'd do this trade in a fucking heartbeat, if the Magic would go for it.

    Eh... I've watched several Magic games and I haven't been all that impressed with him.

    Suppose New Orleans thinks they might lose Boogie as a FA. Would you do Boogie (currently easily a top 10 player in the league) for those two? It's a risk, because he could leave for nothing, but he's by far the best player in that trade. (And he re-signed in SACRAMENTO ferchristsakes.)

    Think backwards: what teams could really use CJ?

    Cleveland? (do they have any other team's pick? Because they've got no player I want)
    Philly? (they have a nice assortment)
    NY? (tempted by Ntilikina, but would need more)
    I would've said Milwaukee, but not since the Bledsoe trade.
    Orlando don't need him - Fournier's putting up better numbers.
    Memphis?
    I can see him fitting in with San Antonio, to be honest, and I wouldn't mind that. If they'd give us back Kyle Anderson, I would probably be pretty content.

    Bud, I respect your opinion, but I do think you are focusing on the wrong guy. Nothing wrong with CJ or the big guy....I would shop Dame

    I'm on the side of you don't trade CJ...

    However, for the sake of conversation...

    I like Dario Saric (+?) from Philly.

    Saric is a throw in with the "meat", where's/what's the meat?

    I think short of the obvious top guys (Lebron, Curry, Harden, etc) you can pretty much get anybody you want for Cj
