This is the second time in two (calendar) years he was benched for a rookie.

It's time for him to realize he is a role player...regardless of his massively bloated salary.

The Rockets are a perfect spot for Baze I think.

With the Cavs pick all but dead, the Mavs pick currently at #18 after winning 4 in a row, the Rockets, losers of 3 in a row their pick at #9 - sign me up.

I’m sorry but the basketball gods owe us one good pick. Every pick we have obtained in the last few years seem to be almost the absolute worst. The rockets pick cane in at 30...Spell is nice but I’m sorry I was hoping this Mavs pick was around 8-11ish...It’s at 18 at the end and I’ll pribably cry.

Hey Spud, remember this? Pick fell right in at #10, I'm glad so we didn't have to see you with the Ugly Cry Face! :lol:

The NBA's Most Underrated Offseason Pickups

Kent Bazemore to the Portland Trail Blazers

Image

While Al-Farouq Aminu and Maurice Harkless aren't elite, the Portland Trail Blazers will miss both of them. If nothing else, each player could knock down open shots and defend multiple positions.

Without Aminu and Harkless around, Portland will likely start either Zach Collins (who should be a center) or Anthony Tolliver (a one-trick pony) at power forward.

Kent Bazemore doesn't solve Portland's size issues at forward, but he does cover several of the holes left by Aminu and Harkless.

Bazemore is a competent shooter who can defend multiple positions with his 6'5" frame and 7'0" wingspan, and he should thrive in a low-usage role next to Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. Plus, Portland only had to give up Evan Turner to get Bazemore, and that is an easy win for them given both Bazemore's perfect fit in the modern NBA and Turner's rather hefty contract.

The Blazers aren't the most talented team in the West, but smart acquisitions like Bazemore could give them one of the most well-constructed rosters in the conference and position them for continued success.
