Blazers trade their 2020 picks idea 

Post#1 » by Blazers20 » Wed Oct 7, 2020 9:45 pm

BRK: Simons-2020 2nd round pick
CHI: Collins-Little-2020 1st round pick
POR: Allen-Markannen

Nets make the move because they have plenty of bigs in Claxton, Jordan and KD. They receive a combo guard they can develop and also get a 2nd rounder on a non guaranteed contract.

Bulls don’t want to pay Lauri so they trade him for 2 young prospects and a 1st rounder.

Blazers get an upgrade at the 4 and an upgrade at the backup 5: Allen is a good rim protector and a good young asset.

I really like the idea of Markannen if you can get a defensive minded backup center. Unfortunately BRK will value Allen WAAAAY more than Simons and a 2nd. I also don't think Chicago will move on from Markannen with the new front office and coach, they will give them a year to figure him out.

Ya, Chicago with new management and coach isnt selling low on Lauri. I would move a ton to get him, but its just not in the cards.

This deal seems too good for Portland.

I don't understand the fascination with Lauri...scratch that, yes I understand why somebody would be interested in his "type" of player. But I've watched a lot of him and did a ton of my own scouting for that draft. I've always come away with the feeling that he doesn't have that "it" factor that could help him become a dominant NBA player. He looks shook half the time he's on the court. The last couple games I've watched in person, last year and at the beginning of this year he looked like a completely broken player.

All that being said, I'd consider it. I don't really value any of those "assets" in the trade very strongly. I do believe that Collins will be a better NBA player than he has shown so far.
