    Who’s in a Blazer uniform at the start of next regular season?

    Will Saturday be Melo’s final game as a Blazer? Whiteside? ......CJ’s final game?


    Blazers roster
    Players sitting out: Trevor Ariza (sitting out), Rodney Hood (Achilles surgery)

    BOTH OF THE ABOVE WILL START NEXT SEASON IN A BLAZER UNIFORM

    I'm gonna be honest... I don't even give a shit anymore. This is the most apathetic I have been about our team in my entire life.

    You should have put McCollum at the top, because if that salary domino falls, others still stand. It's the reverse-domino theory.

    True. The change will finally come when the owner has a quasi-religious epiphany, which may or may not include selling the team.

    Gone for sure:
    Biggie
    Whiteside
    Mario (to Barcelona)

    Very likely gone:
    Melo

    Obviously not going anywhere:
    Dame
    CJ
    Nurk
    Trent
    Little
    Wenyen
    Zach (but just because he's injured)
    Hood

    No reason to be gone:
    Adams (he wasn't signed just for the Bubble)
    Hoard
    Brown (still VERY young, and might get minutes with Whiteside gone)

    Will very probably be kept:
    Ariza (not least because an expiring contract is valuable)

    Likely a couple very minor changes but history tells us Olshey won't make any major moves.....other than letting major pieces go for nothing. He's quite proficient at that.

    Thats a pretty good assumption unfortunately.

    id love to bring Melo aNd Whiteside back as vet bench players on good contracts though. If Ant could get consistent ( which you left off your list) he could work well with those two off the bench i think.
    id like to see Mario be replaced with a better 3pt shooter to put with them as well.

    if that happened id be content and hopefull a healthy squad could contend. We need to remember. This team as of now, vs the lakers, has not found itself. Yes, Dame went crazy in the bubble, but the team hasn't defined and perfected their cohesion.
    I tbink if we could keep them together and go into next season, the players will have more defined roles, and trust in the team.

    Sometimes that's not a bad thing. Whitsitt should've done that with Brian Grant, and kept Jermaine O'Neal. Instead we ended up with Shawn Kemp.

    I hope you're right about Mario.

    Gone for sure
    Whiteside (his performance in the bubble has been disappointing)
    Biggie
    Moses
    Hoard

    Olshey listen to offers but ultimately keep
    CJ (I do want to trade him for a wing though)
    Ariza
    Collins
    Hood
    Simons

    Blazers forever
    Damian
    Nurkic
    Trent
    Gabriel

    Wild card
    Melo (what does he actually want to do next year?)
    Mario (He has his player option, does he want to stay and keep being a bust or go back to Europe where he can dominate?)

    This is my prediction as well. Tough to have a winning record next year, playoffs unlikely. West is tough. Gsw willbe back in the mix so portland won't be

    Of this season's lotto teams in the west, who is likely to be in the race next season?

    GSW (almost a lock)
    Memphis (spent much of this season in 8th)
    Suns (came on strong at the end and may have finally turned the corner)
    Pelicans (media favorite, but not sure I see it)
    TWolves (cmon, they can't keep wasting chances forever, can they?)

    Western play-offs race could be a bloodbath. If Olshey thinks he can just stand still, we are screwed.

    Whiteside, Biggie, and Moses are gone. Everyone else returns. Yes, even Hezonja unfortunately
