This is intriguing and i think Portland does it without blinking. i think we need more than a first being that it's guaranteed to be a late one. Perhaps a 1st and 2 future 2nds. Otherwise our only benefit is getting Whiteside's contract which expires at the right time. But that can be done by overpaying someone for a one year contract.
Lol Portland is not trading him.
A young future replacement guard on a rookie deal is exactly the type of player you want to keep when your starting guards are making that sort of money
Exactly. No way we win a championship without Pascal, our #2 being on a rookie contract.
Championship teams draft well so they can put the money in the top dogs and expand their rotation with small contracts and potentially big talent.
If Portland is smart, they'll do the same.
Au contraire I would say to win a title they most def would auction Simons and suck more tax. Just like we dealt a number nine pick after two years and packaged it with our most loyal number two. Portland def looking like the new Raps.
