    The pick they got is the Bucks. Unless Giannis misses the season it won't be a high pick.
    Makes Portland look even better with that trade... Getting a big(ish) gun for next to nothing.

    Well damn, they have Cade already, a high pick in the draft and like 45 mil in salary cap space. And a likely high pick in 2025 from the Blazers. If they don't find a way screw it up Pistons might actually be good sooner than later.

    Sooo...

    Not that I think it's gonna happen, and I'm loathe to fan the flames... but for the hypothetical --

    if Masai/Bobby move up to 7 -- who would they be eyeing do we think?

    Mathurin for the Cancon? We could certainly use what he projects to bring... He's likely gone by 7 from the sounds of things though...

    Who else would Raps management be coveting as the next big steal... (Likely someone not projected in the top 60? lol)

    (Is this derailing the thread? .... if so, it'll only be a derail for less than 24hrs at this point...)
    I think it's a lateral move at the absolute best... Someone like AJ Griffin is there. But his ceiling might be OG. Who knows, he could always be better as he's a more fluid athlete although I wouldn't say more athletic, but OG is really damn good. And young. The only reason would be to push the window a few years later just to potentially frustrate Scottie, and treadmill in the near future while we wait. I'd rather look to trade Fred or even Pascal if we're trying to delay our window of contention. For what it's worth, I'm only really interested in trading one of Fred or Gary if the right guard is available. That guy isn't available right now IMO.

    If we're gonna trade OG it should be for Rudy Gobert but I'm not totally sold on that either.

    You see a guy's shooting improve from suspect to 41% from three in one year, that tells you something about his work ethic no?
    Definitely

    6'5", quick first step, crafty, efficient shooter with a 46% 3 pt shot and solid build (strength), "extremely high skill level with the ball." Sounds like a great change of pace player, a strong screener, and made for coming off the bench. If he can make the team, lock him up for 4 years at the rookie scale and maybe free up Trent Jr for a trade. I don't see the Champagnie comparison, but I haven't seen any film on him either. He sounds
    He’s has zero lateral mobility and get blown by easily. He also is a below the rim player.

    My vote is for Max Christie.

    I don't get it, how do the Blazers trade for Grant and not send any players to Detroit?
    Trade exception from the CJ McCollum deal

    True. It's a 2025 FRP (and not even their own) so I guess trade ideas for #7 still have a pulse
    Now that they have Grant they prolly not so keen on OG?

    I don't see them trading Simons. Simons is a heck of a player and they look at him as a core piece. I don't think the core that they have is good enough to win the championship though. If i'm them i'd keep the 7th and pick a SF someone like Daniels. Move Grant to the 4 and Daniels at the 3. Be a more defensive type team.
    For some one John Collins you don't think they do it? I don't think blazers have the time to wait for 2 young guys to reach prime. Dame only has a couple years left. Simons showed flashes but he was also playing with basically a g league team mates someone had to score

    Getting Grant signals no time for a rebuild. Think they try the 7 little and simons to get another piece win now piece. Maybe one of the centers?
