    Brian Grant wasn't huge but he wasn't over the hill either. He chose to sign with the Blazers in his 4th season.

    The Ultimate Loyalty Guy with the Ultimate Mercenary? This is a great story… I’d love to see it.

    I believe that restriction is only in place for 2 months (from the date the trade is finalized). So... beginning of September?

    I can wait.

    I don't see how you get to Durant's salary keeping those guys..at all...and you'll lose all your first round picks for a decade...all for a rental? I'm no cap expert but people who do invest in that research seem to think it's going to cost us depth to have the guy ...don't get me wrong...I think Durant is a great player...not sure if he's worth gutting the team for....in my view the Nets are only trading Durant for Dame.....and Durant doesn't want to come to a team without Dame in Portland ..we'll see.

    I believe it's less in the offseason.

    And you just gave a great comment against what I said. I respect that. Yeah, Brian was fun and amazing to have. Can you think of any others? I have been trying to.... I can't think of anyone else, over the years.
