Excellent post by Grigs on whether or not the Millsap offer is the end game. My bet is on the 3 way trade, delivering Captain Kirk. Who might the Blazers be sending out ? If the Hinrich deal goes down, prior to the free agency signing, and the remaining cap $$ are spent on free agency - here's a look at what that budget might be. If Bass is the target which of these scenarios is most likely (eg - how much cap needs to be in place for Brandon Bass to sign)?
