Players Blazers should target using Harkless(exp), Leonard/Turner(exp), and Simons, maybe 23rd pick if needed

Otto Porter Jr
- Adds 3rd scorer on wing that can also play solid defense on the wing

Aaron Gordon
- Offers scoring from the forward position and would a be great fit with Nurkic

Kent Bazemore
- 3&D wing

Harrison Barnes
- Prolly the most well rounded scorer out of the 4 while offering solid defense as well

18 Jun 2019 02:47:59
Gordon and Porter (or Porter and Blake Griffin) are definitely the dream offseason for me. They can fit either duo into trades with their big expiring deals.

Agreed that Gordon would be a great fit with their current 3 cornerstones. As would Griffin.

18 Jun 2019 03:55:05
Great ideas but why is orlando giving up a young guy that paiid ( properly) for 23rd pick and guys.

17 Jun 2019 01:14:04
Knicks/ Blazers

To NYK - Pick 25 (Turner

To POR - Ntilikina

With KD’s prospects of playing next season slim, Knicks #1 priority ruins the rest of the offseason, whether they sign him or not. Why not tank again next year, get another high pick, and still have the cap space that ET’s deal gives you with an additional young asset at 25.

Portland gives themselves plenty of breathing room below the tax, and takes a flyer that Frank can at least become offensively proficient enough to use as a rotation player. Worst case, they can use his defensive prowess.

16 Jun 2019 00:51:05
Blazers offseason

Blazers - Porter
Bulls - Turner(exp) Leonard(exp) and Simons

- Bulls add 3 & D SF who can be their 3rd scorer on the wing
- Bulls adds PG prospect who they can actually give minutes too plus cap space

Blazers vet min free agent targets
Elfrid Payton PG
Justin Holiday SG
Wilson Chandler F

Resign Enes Kanter(min) and Aminu(full mle)
Draft KZ Okpala


16 Jun 2019 02:40:45
I think Aminu will get overpaid elsewhere.

13 Jun 2019 17:47:20
Trade SZN

Pelicans - Trail Blazers - Lakers
Lakers receive - Anthony Davis , Moe Harkless
Pelicans receive - CJ Mccolum , 4th Pick , 25th Pick
Trail Blazers receive- Lebron

Trail Blazers do it to pair Lebron and Dame
Lakers move on from Lebron start rebuild with Davis.
Pelicans pair Jrue and CJ backcourt and gain 2 picks.

13 Jun 2019 17:50:37
Do we think davis wants to go to LA if lebron isn’t there?

13 Jun 2019 18:41:38
Who cares. If AD leaves Lakers have young core. Getting off lebron is a win.

13 Jun 2019 11:25:19

Clippers out: Gallinari, Sixers 1st
Clippers in: Bjelica, 2nd round pick Kings
* they do this only if Kawhi is still willing to sign in LA
* sign
Kawhi Leonard max
Terrence Ross 3yr/36mil
Demarcus Cousins 1yr/15mil


Blazers out: Turner exp, Leonard exp, 25th pick
Blazers in: Gallinari


Kings out: Bjelica
Kings in: Turner, Leonard, 25th pick, Sixers 1st


13 Jun 2019 15:56:46
Kings say no.

13 Jun 2019 19:03:18
Agree. Eats up too much of Kings cap space to be able to sign a quality big man. Also, team doesn't have a lot of vacant roster spots either.

05 Jun 2019 21:31:17
Wolves blazers

Blazers get

Wolves get
#25th pick

Probably too low even for Wiggins, but it gets them out of one of the worst contracts in the league while Wiggins gets a new start to try an reboot his career with a better team

05 Jun 2019 21:46:40
Wiggins and 11th pick might entice POR in doing that.

05 Jun 2019 23:33:44
If Portland could get Wiggins and 11 out of their expiring deals, I'd jump on that in a heartbeat. Maybe try to pry Saric out of it too.

Wiggins, Saric, and 11


Harkless, Turner, and 25

Even if you bring Wiggins off the bench, that's a great win now move to me.

06 Jun 2019 00:07:33
The only Wiggins deal that I can see would be straight ups for Hayward or CP3.

06 Jun 2019 00:22:34
100% agree with usa. Harkless and Turner are expiring deals, Wiggins contract is an albatross. Why would Portland do this?

05 Jun 2019 04:18:36

Suns: Conley
sign Randle 4yr/70mil, Jamychal Green 1yr/5mil MLE


Grizz: Leonard exp, Turner exp, Johnson exp, Simons, 6th pick, 25th pick
draft picks

2nd- Morant
6th- Culver
25th- Gafford


Blazers: Warren, Bradley & CJ Miles exp
they get 3 quality rotation players to help their star duo


05 Jun 2019 06:15:40
Cap hold on Oubre and Holmes prevent signing Randle to that amount.

05 Jun 2019 10:34:14
Suns giving up toο much (especially 6th pick) Blazers getting way too much value (they get rid of two awful (even if they're expiring) contracts and get two above average role players with just giving up two late firsts.

04 Jun 2019 12:43:49
Bulls - Trail Blazers

Bulls gets:
25th pick 2019

Trail Blazers gets:
Porter Jr.

05 Jun 2019 21:22:49
Porter Jr is better than all the players given up by Portland and would help them, but he doesn't make the blazers a contender especially with Porter's over priced contract.

23 May 2019 10:31:17

Kings- Myers Leonard, Evan Turner, 25th pick

Blazers- Barnes, 2nd round pick

23 May 2019 13:48:00
As a Kings fan, I would probably do this but it would help if the right prospect were available at #25 as well.

BMiller will probably say no to this thou.

23 May 2019 17:35:09
Nah, I love this. If Portland can get an overpaid solid starter without giving up Collins or their main core, I’m all over it. Heck, I might include Simons or a future first to get this done.

23 May 2019 18:04:34
A lottery protected 2020 FRP added to the package and its a done deal.

23 May 2019 22:15:45
Agreed, call Olshey and Divac, get this done :D.

24 May 2019 00:38:43
Feeling like Commissioner Gordon using the Bat phone.

22 May 2019 22:30:05
Portland/ New Orleans

Portland get A. Davis, S. Hill

NO get Nurkic, Collins, Harkless, Turner, 1st Round Pick 2019 (#25), 1st 2021.

22 May 2019 22:51:34
Throw in Simons too. He's got some value as a really young guy.

22 May 2019 23:45:29
Add another 1st and Simmons that would be a conversation. I believe the trio of Lillard McCollum and Davis would be a legit title contender.

23 May 2019 01:05:06
Knicks trade package is probably better because of the draft picks.

23 May 2019 16:26:25
They aren't getting AD unless you give up CJ. There package won't compare to others unless he is included.

29 May 2019 16:52:03
No way. AD is on a one year deal and there is no guarantee that he will resign. Giving up way to much.

22 May 2019 22:01:24
Detroit/ Cavs/ Portland

Detroit get T. Thompson, M. Leonard, 1st round pick from Portland 2019 (#25)

Cavs get Harkless, Turner, Nurkic, 1st Round pick 2020 from detroit, 2nr Round pick 2019 from detroit (#45)

Portland get Love, Drummond, Zizic, Nance


22 May 2019 22:57:47
How about remove the Cavs, and add Blake to the deal?

Detroit gets Harkless, Turner, Nurkic, Leonard (Collins? ), Portland 2019 first

Portland gets: Griffin and Drummond

Nevermind, just give me Griffin and keep Nurkic. Turner, Leonard, Simons, and a first for Blake.

23 May 2019 01:06:32
How do you even accept a trade for Nurkic without seeing how his recovery is?

22 May 2019 15:44:33
Clevland/ Portland

Clevland get Evan Turner, Zach Collins 1st Round Pick 2020

Portland get Kevin Love


22 May 2019 19:01:33
Portland offers same package to San Antonio for Alridge?

22 May 2019 19:26:33
Collins is better than both because of age and contract.

22 May 2019 19:32:33
I’d take Aldridge over Love due to injury history. But either would be a good fit in Portland.

I’d be hesitant to include Collins, who I’m really high on. I value him the way Laker fans value Ball. Trading him for someone at the tail end of their prime is concerning.

22 May 2019 21:44:24
Bmiller, the question ultimately becomes does Portland go all-in once Dame signs that super max. I think they do, and shipping out Collins is their best "future" asset.

Plus, you don't have to resign Aminu if you have Alridge. You will still have Leonard. Just a thought.

22 May 2019 22:49:14
Absolutely Fredman. I speak a lot out of fan bias. I love the way Collins plays. I'm not sure he ever makes the jump, but he's got the tools to be Aldridge/ Bosh/ Love. My comparison of Collins to Ball was also trying to show my inherent bias.

Also, another thought: I want Blake Griffin over those other two. He's the guy that would be a perfect fit and should be available.

Lillard, McCollum, Griffin, and Nurkic/ Collins (trade one of the centers) would be a top tier starting group.

23 May 2019 01:10:24
Blake's injuries always concern me about him. Alridge is usually more available and less dependent on ISO plays like Blake is.

21 May 2019 20:41:52




21 May 2019 21:43:28
Gotta see whst Nurkic's recovery looks like. And then add about 3 FRPs to the package.

21 May 2019 22:02:41
Portland would keep McCollum over a one season rental common sense tells me.

21 May 2019 23:39:18
I don't like it for Portland. McCollum and Nurkic lead them to the WCF this year, and they're locked in long term. They also seems like guys that like being in a small market. I wouldn't risk what they have for the likeliness of Davis walking.

Also, this makes Portland the same at best. They'd be a top 6 team in the west, but not close to GS.

If Portland were to land Davis, I think they'd have to keep McCollum. Adding AD to Lillard and McCollum could challenge for a title. Just Lillard and AD I don't think can.

21 May 2019 20:24:46






21 May 2019 22:10:04
Great for the Spurs, Derozan is worth more like conley/ Wright or conley/ Brooks but the Portland deal is a good haul for s. a.

21 May 2019 22:26:11
Derozan does not fit Memphis’ timeline. They are rebuilding and Derozan will be 30 when the season starts.

21 May 2019 23:42:09
This is terrible for Portland. Like the AD trade, it makes no sense to trade McCollum for someone in the same range of quality as himself.

Add Aldridge to Lillard, McCollum, and Nurkic and they're a top tier team. Replace McCollum with Aldridge and they don't improve in the slightest. If anything, they're worse.

I also hate it for Memphis. If they're trading Conley, they go young and get assets for a rebuild.

21 May 2019 23:36:17
I don’t hate it for anyone really.

Even rebuilding teams need vets, and at 30, Derozan still has enough quality years left in him that he should be a contributor when the Grizz turn it around.

22 May 2019 01:38:51
DeRozan and no picks doesn't help a rebuild.

28 May 2019 20:21:51
I don't understand why you would want a 33 year old power forward. And you give up McCollum for that. No way.

21 May 2019 06:34:28
Bulls trade portland

Bulls get E. Turner,A. Simons,and pick #25

Portland gets O.porter

Blazers do this trade because they have a 2 yr window 2 win and they need a wing bad.

Bulls do it to roll the dice on simons and still have pick #7 and #25

21 May 2019 10:15:14
Horrible return for Porter.

21 May 2019 11:56:55
How u figure porter is an alright player but 28 mil is a lot bulls free that money up can buy out turner now bulls got a lot of money and 2 first round picks but for portland they can't sign no one they have to trade to free money up to get a player.

21 May 2019 12:10:41
Why would they need that cap space? They are rebuilding. They can easily get a better return for porter than that bag of balls.

21 May 2019 12:16:24
Parker and portis for porter u think that was an even deal.

21 May 2019 17:14:48
It depends on how people value Simons. I think he's got the value of a early 20's first still. So that's two late firsts for Porter. I don't think that's terrible. He did have a really bad first 2/ 3 of last season. 14 games doesn't completely eliminate his decline overall last year.

15 May 2019 14:41:34
Portland gets: Davis, Hill
N.O gets: McCollum, Nurkic

Boston gets: #1,
N.O gets: Tatum, #14(Herro)#22(Hachimura seems to be dropping for some apparent reason)

Orlando gets: Holiday, Moore
N.O gets: Gordon, Augustin, and Bamba

N.O looks like

Orlando looks like:
#16 (Little)

Boston looks like

This is pre-free agency of course.

15 May 2019 15:01:01
Forgot Portland
Lillard/ Curry
Hood/ Turner
Harkless/ Hill
Davis/ Aminu/ Collins
Kanter/ Leonard.

15 May 2019 15:19:06
You’re not getting Zion dream on.

15 May 2019 15:24:54
Why in the world would NO do those trades?

15 May 2019 16:38:24
Not a Boston fan but easiest way Zion can play with KD and Kyrie since Knicks don't have the #1 pick. AND that's a fair trade.

Why in the world NOT, if they're all going to leave in the next 2-4 years anyway. Get talent under contract that style of play blends with coaching philosophy.

15 May 2019 17:30:14
Or keep the generational talent that you have under control for 5 years at the minimum.

15 May 2019 20:07:37
I don't think I'd trade McCollum and Nurkic for Davis after what has happened the last few weeks in Portland. Is Davis taking Portland past GS? I highly doubt it. He's less connected to the city, less inclined to extend, and doesn't take them to a different level in the hierarchy of the league.

It would have to be without McCollum, which couldn't happen because Portland doesn't have the assets past him to land Davis.

16 May 2019 02:29:35
Its possible GS lose 3 of their 5 allstars. I think people are forgetting that. The next big 3 that form are instant favorites. The league is reset. I like Dame and AD. Hood and Kanter are nice complimentary pieces.

17 May 2019 15:11:43
I actually really like that Portland trade for both sides. I think the Blazers could get another scoring guard, and this would make them a much more well rounded team. It would also give New Orleans a really good scorer who could start to lead his own team a bit. Not that he's bad alongside Lillard, but I feel like both could be better playing the same role for separate teams.

I like the concept of the Celtics going for that pick, I just don't think Tatum is the one I would move to accomplish it. I'd try to be moving Kyrie, but with the rest of the moves here that wouldn't make any sense for New Orleans.

29 May 2019 16:53:42
You assume that Portland will be able to sign Hood and Kanter. If they don't you trust traded way two of three best players for AD on a one year deal.

02 May 2019 21:59:07

Dbook has had enough of playing with a team that's not getting him anywhere and he has barely hit his prime, he demands a trade in the off-season, long shot but.

LAC gets Booker
Sign KD 5YR/ 180
Sign Boogie 4yr/ 120

PHX suns get Gallo, 1st rd pick via LAC 2020, 2nd rd picks 2019 and cash considerations and 1st rd pick via POR 2019

Sign Brogdon 3yr/ 50 mil

POR gets TJ Warren

Beverly/ Shai
Booker/ Lou Will
KD/ Green
Harrell/ Martin/ Mbah Moute
Cousins/ Zubac

Gallo/ Miles Bridges
Josh Jackson

Liilard/ Curry
RJ Barrett/ Hood
Warren/ Moe Harkless
Aminu/ Leonard
Kanter/ Nurkic.

03 May 2019 02:37:41
Suns trade Booker and Warren for 2 late first rounders? Seriously? You can't possibly justify that type of trade.

03 May 2019 03:05:23
Booker just signed an extension. He has not leverage.

03 May 2019 03:10:54
Booker who can't guard anybody or play 70 games demands anything is funny as rubbish.

03 May 2019 03:23:34
Sign KD to 5 years? S&T?

03 May 2019 03:40:06
You are crazy if you sign Boogie for that amount.

03 May 2019 17:11:14
This is confusing, did you not finish your trade and then just throw players wherever?

Also, is Kanter starting because Nurkic is hurt? Or are you really saying Kanter is better than Nurkic (which is ridiculous)?

And, Portland can't afford Kanter, Curry, and Hood. They don't have the bird rights on any of them. And I don't see them all splitting the MLE.

04 May 2019 00:57:08
BMiller, they should have Hood’s bird rights. They got him via trade from Cleveland and he signed a qualifying offer with them after they had traded for him the year before.

04 May 2019 03:33:48
If you get traded when on a QO, all bird rights are forfeit. There’s been a lot of discussion on how/ if Portland can keep any of those three, and which one they should if they can.

25 Apr 2019 20:14:55
'19 drafted, '20 1st


Keep favors to fill in for Kanter not coming back, and Nurkic recovery if he's not going to be ready to start the season.


Don't guarantee Favors, and save 17.5M, re-sign Aminu 3years/27M. Lots of undrafted's this season to be had, and POR should change Curry, and Trent jr over to standard deals, and fill their MLE with a FA. Markieff Morris maybe.

25 Apr 2019 23:42:53
I don't see portland giving up 2 1sts for Favors.

26 Apr 2019 01:42:16
I forgot OR.

28 May 2019 20:45:00
I don't see why anyone wants Aminu back on the team. Collins is going to be the starter next year. I would use Aminu money to sign Hood or Kanter.

25 Apr 2019 17:16:44



25 Apr 2019 17:55:20
Eew, Reggie Jackson to go along with McCollum and Lillard? Feels like a terrible fit. Also, that's a huge downgrade in center for Portland.

25 Apr 2019 20:05:03
Nurkic doesn't carry the same value with me as he does for you. I also value Powell higher than you, and see little use for Leonard, Turner, Hood going forward. I actually think this is a bit of a homer trade favoring the blazers as well. A guy who is coming back from breaking his leg for the 2nd time in two years, and who would have probably been benched for Kanter VS OKC can be traded. He wasn't playing, but Nurkic is slow on the close-outs, no denying that. Your not going to see a steady diet of Bogut VS HOU for the same reason.

29 Apr 2019 14:16:44
the mavs are not going to take on 3 bad salaries to trade 2 bad salries------
what they will do is trade hardaway for anything to dump his salary--maybe someone will give him a second round pick he is a nice player but not worth it for 2 more years

then stretch Lee and the mouths have about 54 milliom to spend

perfect scenario is thompson and vucuvic as free agents

more likely scenario----randle, gren of toronto, and brogdon---i think you could pay them 17,10,17 and still have 10 left over could actually sign those 3 without lee's stretch provision---this is assuming they don't get a top 4 pick------dallas will take zion at one and if get 2 trade down to someone that wants morant dallas loves the virginia kid

dallas lineup

vucuvic or randle/ powell
portzingus/ weber
virginia sf/ jackson/

brogdom/ green
doncic/ brunson / barrea

team rounded out with mejri c amd either harris, or finney -smith, or broekoff.
