Hypothetical: Blake to Charlotte

Something centering around

Blake

For

Batum / Bridges


Jordan gets his star player to go with Ball and we get a young SF in Bridges.

No one's taking Blake right now. Forget it.

Come on man. You think after 18 years on the board, you would know better than to start a tread titled like that today.

I saw it was Piston Pete ahed of time, so I knew it was just a trade proposal. Been seeing it for 18 years with Pete.

Yeah, those of us who’ve been around since the olden times knew what was up.

The thread should be retitled though. Edit: I’ve gone ahead and done that.

For historical context to newer folks: while there still is a healthy pretend-trade community on Realgm, in the early days that is what Realgm used to be ALL about. Realgm was far smaller and most of it was trades. The Trades and Transactions Board used to dwarf the General Board in post count, and proposed trades were also a significant portion of the posts you’d see in team boards too.

These days a thread title like this anywhere but the T/T board will initially be thought to be real, but PP is from an era when it wasn’t like that.

Why not. Maybe throw in Dedmon as well?

I suggested something similar

Rozier/Batum for griffin

They add in year 2 from rozier to griffin but rozier became expendable with lamelo on the team and they save 5 mil this year and get rid of Batum even though he is a expiring
