DET get: Dewayne Dedmon, Kent Bazemore (exp), Nassir Little, 2nd round pick SAC & 1st round pick POR

will get worse this season. get a pick and a prospect in Little. Might as well deal Derrick Rose

PG Derrick Rose
SG Luke Kennard
SF Kent Bazemore
PF Markieff Morris
CE Dewayne Dedmon

POR get: Andre Drummond, Trevor Ariza & Langston Galloway (exp)

Get a quality big and a wing defender that they really need. Win-win because we don't know how will Nurkic play looks when he comes back. If he's still the same, they can let Drummond go or keep both. But as of now,

PG Damian Lillard
SG CJ McCollum
SF Trevor Ariza
PF Carmelo Anthony
CE Andre Drummond

SAC get: Hassan Whiteside (exp) & Mario Hezonja

get cap relief on next season without giving up much

PG D'Aaron Fox
SG Buddy Hield
SF Harrison Barnes
PF Marvin Bagley
CE Hassan Whiteside

Giving up a first for a guy on an expiring contract at a position of non-need is a bad move. Even if Nurkic doesn’t come back the same, Collins is also a really solid center.

And every report from inside Portland has said they have absolutely no interest in a short term fix. They’re already looking to next year.

Bad deal for Portland. I don't like anything on their side. Drummond is the same player as Whiteside. SAC and DET probably would do this.
