    Any GM that trades for Dame isn’t losing their job.

    Either the ever occurring "20 games" benchmark (that never means anything) or never.

    1. After all of this, hard to see Dame being okay with being back with Olshey.
    2. HARDER to see the NBA being okay with that. That trade would be quickly nixed.

    Wooooowwwwww. Like hiring a woman gm would be bad? I don't give a shit who it is as long as they make moves and bring us a team that contends.

    I mentioned this In another thread but noticing all the 1 year deals I feel like Olshey talked Lillard into running with this team and Billups this year and if it doesn't work then go nuclear next offseason. I believe Blazers only have 3 players on contract after this season so they're be a lot more flexibility.

    Unless the agent deals directly with the owner. Im sure it happens behind the scenes all the time, now that super star players have so much pull on where they want to go.

    but what players got 1 year deals, zeller, mclemore & snell lol (nba is filled with players like that, you can find them every season)

    powell got 5 year deal, nurk will get 4 year deal, cj mccollum has 3 year contract, dame lillard has 4 year contract, those are our best players

    Some truly lower ring of hell kind of thinking in all these Dame trade posts.

    I'm just saying the only players on the roster right now that are contracted past next season are Dame, CJ, and Norm. I'm not saying anything about the talent they signed because of course I would like better players but most Free Agents will either want multi year deals or are ring chasing and I think not having anyone other then those 3 signed is 100% by design.

    well, nurk & roco will be free agents next summer and i think we have their bird rights and i assume portland will offer contract extensions to both of them, then you have four rookie contracts (simons, elleby, little & brown), thats 9 players and all others (blevins, gilles, rhj, djj, zeller & snell) are not that important, they can stay, but they can leave easily

    in reality, we have 7 players that have value (dame, cj, nurk, powell, roco, simons & little)

    For sure they could extend them or they could not.. just saying the flexibility is there. Just making the observation that it feels like Olshey is more focused on next off season rather then this one and Dame might be fully aware of that. But non of us know what's been said between to 2 of them, all speculation.

    And somehow that balances out to be a net neutral

    honestly get the feeling we're done until the trade deadline. i foresee a trade of DJ + pick either for a backup PG or a backup wing sometime between now and training camp, but that's about it.

    You guys are kidding yourself. Trust in Neil! It has only been a day.

    I can't say any of that with a straight face.
