    That's gonna be a lot of pressure. I kind of feel sorry for the kid.

    This guy will prolly not be around at 34 but i am intrigued by him and I might ( if I was the Blazers ) even trade back 5 to 7 spots from 14 to get him - heck might even take him at 14 and that is ..... Shannon Jr

    I think he might end up being one of the Top 3 to 5 players from this draft and I know he is a guard but he has height ( 6 '7 ) and might end up being a Jimmy Butler- lite type player. I will admit he is a gamble and not talking about that BS charge he beat but if your talking about biggest upsides then I do believe he is in the Top 5 there for sure but could be a HUGE bust too but i would not be against this gamble.

    Should we change the thread title from 7th to 3rd? The POR trade with HOU for 3rd is getting louder.

    the whispers are growing. Cody Williams is pretty much a lock to be a Blazer this summer. Now, is this just folks engaging in a pre-emptive pick wars? There's only one way to find out... next Wednesday is a monster day for Portland. 4 new rookies!! (maybe)

    They aren't taking Salaun at #7 because they're getting Sarr at #3.

    They were pushing for the playoffs at the trade deadline, but I imagine they have a different perspective now since they traded Caruso…That move makes me think they’ll keep their pick.

    push for the playoffs.... so let's trade our best defensive player for a guy who was unplayable in the playoffs.

    that makes sense.

    They look even dumber though. This is horrible value for him. I guess it’s good for us because it’s one fewer guy who is out there to muddle up the market for Brogdon.

    rumor has it Bulls are about to trade LaVine to Warriors for ... some Dubs. Chicago will needs buckets and assists, someone to provide gravity so DeRozan & Cody can attack.
