Portland blaze it! 

Post#1 » by BK_2020 » Thu Apr 8, 2021 5:34 pm

Portland out:

Dame (Sixers)
CJ (Mavs)

Sixers out:

Simmons (Mavs)
Thybulle, Maxey, Hill, 2024 2026 FRP, 2025 Swap (Blazers)

Mavs out:

2025 FRP (Blazers)
Zinger, Kleber (Pels)
Powell, Burke (Sixers)

Pels out:
Bledsoe, Kira, NAW, Hayes, Adams, 2024 Lakers FRP (Blazers)

Portland why, ship out Dame and CJ and start over. Get a bunch of prospects for now, and multiple distant picks as lottery tickets. Follow up by trading Nurkic and Covington.
Battlechest is Thybulle, Maxey, NAW, Kira, Hayes, 2024 Lakers FRP, 2025 Mavs FRP, 2024 - 2026 Sixers FRP (after Embiid's contract runs out).

Sixers why, get Dame at the cost of Simmons, 2 picks and 1 swap plus low-tier prospects.

Mavs why, get off Zinger and get some help for Doncic. Lose a good roleplayer and dump two overpaid roleplayers.

Pels why, better fit for Zion if he works out at the cost of ok but not great prospects.

Everybody wins.

I was trying to understand this trade, and it didn't make any sense at all! Why is Portland getting all of this just for CJ? And then I saw Dame.
No way, Jose...

Horrificly bad and can hardly even make it out. Burke at 3 million is not all that much overpaid, and giving up Kleber KP and a pick and what to show for it? CJ McCollum? Not the direction Dallas will go at all.

If PDX were ever to consider trading Dame (they won't), going to the Sixers for Simmons++ is probably about the best framework to start around.

Except in this deal, they don't actually get Simmons. Instead he's rerouted to Dallas for........nothing, as far as I can tell? Mavs outgoing looks like the return for just CJ, not CJ plus Simmons.

So, in total, Portland trades Dame and CJ for a few late 1sts 3-5 years in the future. Yeah, I don't think this one is happening.

Yeah maybe Dallas should give away a few more picks to Portland.

So..POR sends out its top 3 backcourt for low picks and roleplayers, so the Mavs get a young all nba guy and get off a terrible contract?

That’s gonna be a no thank you from POR, chief.

Those picks are years away, when Embiid and Dame might have declined severely or not even playing for the Sixers. Same with the Lakers pick.

I wouldn't describe McCollum as this.

Edit: Okay, I'm an idiot. But this trade was confusing. And apparently locked. :lol:
