    Windhorst: "I apologize that I have to qualify this so hard, but I'm gonna have to do it just for aggregation purposes: *RIGHT NOW,* I think the message that the Blazers are putting out there is that they're gonna stand pat. Doesn't mean that that won't change in three weeks, but the word that I've heard is — the position that they're saying is 'we're gonna get Nurkić back and see what we can do.”

    So Nurkic’ return is imminent? I’m ok with seeing how the team plays with him, but I don’t see how his return changes the teams needs either, specifically on the wing.

    Windhorst is an idiot, we don't even have Pat Connaughton so we can't stand on him.

    Or it could be Jody Allen not wanting to sink more money on this broken ship until she sees some sort of potential from this current group.

    So that means Whiteside and Bazemore will walk at end of season with nothing in return... so next season we are looking same roster but Nurk coming off major injury instead of Whiteside... with no resources to get better... yuck

    it was a misspell, it's not "the Blazers are going to stand pat"...it's "the Blazers are going to stand fat"; they are re-signing Shawn Kemp

    This means nothing. He actually qualified his qualification.

    You misread it. Stand PAT. As in Powerforward Anthony Toliver.

    I believe it. CJ’s value is lower than ever and what are you going to get in return that is a sure deal?

    I’m still in the camp to let Trent Jr and Simons fight for SG and play Little as much as you can.

    Well I don't think we would get a good player for cap relief so together with Hassan and Bazemore also the 1st round pick is standing pat. I would like it to become Otto Porter though.

    We would have 20 mil in cap space if they walk right? Sign kanter to be our backup at 8 mil. We should be getting a lotto pick as well.

    I think that team could be a force.

    Im sure that Dame & CJ have met with JA & Neil and recommend standing pat. No since in panicking as the team and some will be back eventually. As they sip on a glass of vino.

    I would have no problem with this.
    I still believe Dame, Nurk, Zach, CJ and Rodney are a very capable championship core.
    And most in here seem to feel Simons, Little and Trent can play and it would be awesome if Melo would stay....
    Bag this year.
    They are relying too much on guys like Whiteside, Bazemire, Tolliver and Mario who have never demonstrated a winning culture in their entire careers.
