    Looks like Whiteside is in the last year of his contract so him and Baze can be dealt at the trade deadline still and this gives us a center till Nurk comes back. So good trade.

    Because Bam is better and Whiteside caused issues demanding more minutes etc. But it is a good deal for us considering we gave away two nobodies.

    Not sure what this does to their cap situation as the Blazers are taking on ~$4M more in salary. However, I was told yesterday that Harkless was gone. Certainly a position of need and Whiteside has never really been a big minutes player. He and Nurkic can fit minutes wise.

    Whiteside off the bench probably...though both Whiteside and Nurk on the floor at the same time...Jesus

    Whiteside always made sense to me. Gives us a legit center who Dame will bring the best out of. He’s also playing for a new contract. Once Nurk comes back you have a two headed monster, or a big expiring to deal elsewhere. This also clears the logjam up on the wing, and opens a roster spot. Olshey probably has a minimum signing or two left in him.

    Lillard will get him motivated. Solid move and shores up an area of need.

    I mean no matter how this turns out you cant be mad at what we lost in order to get him. So in that regard I give props to Olshey on this trade. very nice.

    Who got the best player in the deal.

    Was there a better deal out there for a big that included trading out Harkless (who we'd already replaced before the trade)?

    The only real downside is that the board won't have The Hammer to kick around anymore.

    Great trade. Although we still need a backup big while Nurk is out. And power forward is weak.

    He also has one year on his deal so it’s basically a consolidation move. At his best he was quite good, and we definitely needed a center so I like it.
