    This evening freelance NBA writer Landon Buford, who has bylines with SI and Forbes among other places, suggested that the New Orleans Pelicans have offered a multi-player package and picks for Portland’s star guard.

    Pelicans last offer to Blazers was: Satoransky, Hart, Hayes, Murphy, 2022 Lakers FRP, 2023 Pelicans FRP for C.J. McCollum, Per NBA Source.

    Blazers want more assets but didn’t specify who.

    Considering what we gave up in the LAC trade, no way this can be true.

    IF this report NO offer is true and my guess is it's not fully true but IF even close to true and Cronin pulls it off -- you all got to lay off Cronin cause if that is even in the range of what a package MIGHT look like that would be a steal in my book.

    I buy part of the rumor like Sator , Hart and Hayes and maybe 1st but not 2 PLUS Murphy cause IF the Blazers are asking for more then that then Cronin is nuts - my guess is the extra 1st and Murphy is what Cronin and the Blazers want too and that is the holdup ( if true )

    Throw Zeller/Snell/Elleby in as well to keep the roster spots even, and that deal would save the Blazers 6.7M.

    It's almost as though we didn't actually need to sell Norm and RoCo for pennies on the dollar in order to duck the tax...

    OK they don't have 24 picks a piece. Fanspo shows every pick swap as two picks. The Pels have 10 first rounders (four extra from their own but the Lakers pick this year isn't likely to convey and at the same time, they will likely end up with one more first because they keep their first this year if it's in the top 14 and convey two seconds) and 11 seconds (obviously if they get to keep their first this year they will lose two of these seconds). The Knicks have 8 firsts (just 1 extra from their own) and 16 seconds.

    I think we've hit the point of too much smoke to believe any NO trade is credible.

    It’s not just ducking the tax, it’s getting off the majority of Powell’s contract.

    Interesting, but this would either have to be a multi-team deal, or the Blazers are going to have to cut some players to allow this to be completed, right?

    So the Pels have 21 picks and the Knicks do have 24 picks. Thanks for clarifying. Okay, it was off on the swaps. Still, a lot more than Portland has got.

    Why? Nurk is better. I'd rather just get another pick thrown in.

    It's essentially Hart, Hayes, and two picks.

    2022 from LAL, which will convey only if it falls inside the top 10. Otherwise, it goes to Memphis.
    2023 from NOP, presumably going to be lottery protected.

    Neither of these picks might be eligible to transfer until later on, when inevitably protections expire.

    I'm not that thrilled. Remove some of these contingencies and I might be interested.

    Perhaps something like this to clean up the roster spot issues. Snell and Zeller are just thrown in for roster purposes. Chose whatever player of that salary you want to go in there.
