Stephen A is about as reliable as Jason Dumas (not very) but he says the blazers are working on CJ, Roco and multiple firsts for Ben.
I'd like to flip those picks and Tobias for a high level pg. not sure there's any available tho

smunro

1.) 23 Sep 2021 01:45:16
Maybe flip for Wall and first.


2.) 23 Sep 2021 09:47:22
The point of swapping Tobias for a pg would be to improve floor spacing. Wall doesn’t do thaf.


3.) 23 Sep 2021 15:17:37
Toss in Maxey too and I’m in. That was my original idea (though I isn’t have the firsts included) . It makes sense to me. I’d be very happy.

GSW/PHI/POR

Warriors get Simmons and Harris

Sixers get McCollum, Covington, and Wiggins

Blazers get Wiseman and Danny and Draymond Green

B/R had an interesting idea.

Tobias and McCollum swap them Simmons to Atlanta for Gallo, Huerter, and Reddish.

I'm interested but not sold. What do the people think?

smunro

1.) 16 Sep 2021 15:25:32
Easy yes for Hawks

Blazers need a 1st

Philly wouldn’t do the Hawks trade.


2.) 16 Sep 2021 15:27:14
I'm not sure Portland does that. As for the second trade, I like it for both sides. I think a couple firsts need to be added from Atlanta to make the value fair.


3.) 16 Sep 2021 15:56:49
I’ve never liked the McCollum for Harris move for Portland. Harris and Covington is a weird fit, as neither seem like they can play full time SF anymore. It just swaps where the odd fit is from the guards to the forwards. And Harris doesn’t change the overall quality of the team in any way.

If McCollum were disgruntled and desperately wanted a fresh start? Sure. But he seems incredibly happy where he’s at.


4.) 16 Sep 2021 16:28:58
I haven’t really watched Covington in a few years but when he was in philly he was way more affective as a 3 than a 4.


5.) 16 Sep 2021 18:30:49
Yeah, he’s really flipped that (just like Harris) .


6.) 17 Sep 2021 12:34:00
That's a really bad trade fit the hawks. Harris isn't that good.

PHI/POR/TOR

Sixers get CJ McCollum, Robert Covington, Anfernee Simons, and Chris Boucher

Blazers get Pascal Siakam and Danny Green

Raptors get Ben Simmons and Shake Milton

smunro

1.) 10 Sep 2021 02:55:37
No from Portland.


2.) 10 Sep 2021 15:17:46
What if you take Simons out, DAC?


3.) 10 Sep 2021 15:56:02
I’d rather keep Simons if Portland moves McCollum, but I don’t think I’d let him hold up a trade for an all star forward like Siakam or Simmons.


4.) 10 Sep 2021 23:55:49
Makes it better. I think that and. 1st.


5.) 11 Sep 2021 02:07:05
That would work for me.

IND/PHI/POR

Pacers get Simmons and Green
Sixers get Brogdon and McCollum
Blazers get Sabonis and Maxey

smunro

1.) 02 Sep 2021 02:28:55
Pacers definitely say no!


2.) 02 Sep 2021 04:54:33
I think Blazers should send more to Pacers.


3.) 02 Sep 2021 17:13:40
As a Blazer fan, I’m in. Then flip Nurkic for a forward.

But I think Sabonis = Simmons at worst. This is bad for Indy.

Guys, I don't think I find a way to make Simmons to Houston and wall to philly work. Philly would have to shed more salary, but they're the ones that should be getting more compensation. Can't think of a 3rd team to help

smunro

1.) 21 Sep 2021 01:56:53
Philly just needs to add $3 mil in salary. They could S&T Mike Scott for that amount. Or Gary Clark.


2.) 21 Sep 2021 09:49:48
Philly still needs more talent coming back though.


3.) 21 Sep 2021 13:22:53
If you think Ben Simmons is getting Philly two players who will become starters over their other players, then you are delusional.


4.) 21 Sep 2021 14:29:30
Not what I’m asking for. Ben’s trade value is higher than walls though. It’s not a 1 for 1 deal.


5.) 21 Sep 2021 15:20:28
Wall has negative trade value. Net zero at absolute best. Simmons still has good positive value. I really think the only way it makes sense is if Wood is also included. Philly would want an above average starter that isn’t past his prime. Wood is the only one that fits on Houston’s roster.

Just because Wall would start doesn’t mean he’s not in the bottom half of starting point guards in the league. He’s a below average starter that’s top 5 in league salary.


6.) 22 Sep 2021 08:29:12
Clippers would give Bledsoe, Kennard, Morris, Johnson and Mann (combination of these players)

Twolves- combination of McDaniels, Beasley, Prince, Beverley and Picks


Please trade Ben Simmons already!


7.) 22 Sep 2021 19:45:40
Both of those packages suck.

Currently 12 hours away from game 6 and I'm not ok. It's impossible to enjoy this city's sports teams

smunro

1.) 18 Jun 2021 16:50:59
Eh, just enjoy it. Look around the country at other big cities that aren’t LA. Look at Portland. Outside of MLS, Portland hasn’t seen a finals in any pro sport (because there’s only the Blazers) since the early 90’s.

Championship or bust leaves fans generally unhappy.


 

 

17 Jun 2021 02:33:27
I'm embarrassed. Ben needs to be traded as soon as the season is over.

smunro

1.) 17 Jun 2021 04:29:13
Keep your faith. They can win the 2 remaining games.


2.) 17 Jun 2021 18:22:21
I’ll take him! Simmons for McCollum. Seems like it fits both teams needs.


3.) 17 Jun 2021 21:39:58
Take Kemba and a 2nd. He won't miss free throws when he's not playing.


 

 

10 Jun 2021 13:50:42
Harris - not an all star
Embiid - not MVP
Simmons - not DPOY

This revenge tour is about to be CRAZY

smunro

1.) 10 Jun 2021 14:40:54
All of those things are true and none should be different.

They might win it all, but that doesn’t change any of that.


2.) 10 Jun 2021 15:09:18
The MVP was on the bench down 30pts last night. Simmons (a non scorer) had 42 with gobert guarding him. But yea none of those things should be different.


3.) 10 Jun 2021 15:27:40
Jokic is the more deserving guy to win the MVP accept it or not. Embiid missed times, that really affects the voting. Besides, Jokic doesn't have Murray on his side. You have a point on Simmons tho.


4.) 10 Jun 2021 16:12:45
So MVP is a perfect attendance trophy. Got it.


5.) 10 Jun 2021 16:27:49
Jokic was and is the MVP this year.

smunro, who was the MVP in your opinion?


6.) 10 Jun 2021 16:41:23
Simmons should’ve won DPOY. The others were right.


7.) 10 Jun 2021 17:59:47
I think Simmons deserved DPOY over Gobert but thinking Embiid is MVP is just plain silly.


8.) 10 Jun 2021 18:06:07
One game isn’t the only factor in a season long award. Gobert beat Simmons in every advanced defensive stat. And the eye test tells me he’s better. Simmons is more versatile, Gobert is better at what he does.

And yes, games played is a huge factor in MVP. But even if Embiid played every game, Jokic had statistically the best offensive season in league history. It’s not like he won only because he played all the games. It’s a close debate if games played is taken out. Either would be an acceptable MVP in that case.

Harris is probably the best case. But I’m not sure he deserved it over Vuc (who seems like the last wildcard selection) .


9.) 10 Jun 2021 20:23:37
Absence affects Embiid's MVP bid for sure. He could've won if he played out the whole regular season, who knows. But Jokic deserves it man, it's not like he won it by doing nothing. The kid worked his butt off.


10.) 10 Jun 2021 23:35:12
I’ve heard time and time again that advance stats don’t matter. Gobert is an amazing rim protector but that’s all he his. Simmons can switch on any positions and guard anyone (which is why his rating might be lower since he’s so versatile and guards every teams best player) . Gobert steadily gets exposed by guards/ wings when they get the switch on him on perimeter.


11.) 11 Jun 2021 02:05:47
Smruno. If I told you two players were close but one would miss 20% of your season. Which one would you want to pay?


12.) 11 Jun 2021 11:58:56
Any bets that the "revenge tour" leads to longer stays on the IR?


13.) 11 Jun 2021 15:39:36
Eh, give me all time elite skills with some limitations over flexibility but no where near the individual peak skills.


14.) 11 Jun 2021 16:06:38
You say that until CP3 and Booker gets the switch on Gobert and destroys him on the wing.


15.) 11 Jun 2021 18:42:12
Bmiller you even said Simmons would be the Blazers dream target. If you could trade McCollum and picks for say, I’m sure you would rather them get Simmons back instead of Gobert.


16.) 12 Jun 2021 12:09:17
Nuggets down 3-0? Real valuable.


17.) 14 Jun 2021 17:57:27
I was more talking a 1:1 change in the starting lineup assuming Lillard, Powell, RoCo, and Nurkic stayed.

Simmons would be the Blazers dream return for McCollum. If I could have Gobert instead, I’d take him. But he’s not available like Simmons likely will be if phili gets swept by the Nets.

Why hasn't Adam silver forced jerry colangelo to take over for Sam Presti and hire his son to be the new GM? Disgraceful display of tanking. TTP

Casual, that was 9 years ago and his game before depended so much on him being explosive. If he had Murray’s skill set he probably remains an all star in the East for a few years.

Our definition of elite is very different. Sexton is growing on me though.
