Screw Simmons Best Blazer Draft Trade



I'll be quick reports out of Orlando is that Vaughn doesn't know who he wants with the number 2 pick in the draft. Olshey calls up Hennigan and offers #10 and Batum for #2, Vucevic and Warrick.

Portland gets the rim protector and rebounder they desperately need next to Aldridge in Vucevic. With the #2 Portland can have whoever is rated highest or even Noel if he slips. It's the perfect spot in the draft, And it also frees up roughly 7 million more in cap after we lop off Warrick's team option. It'll allow Portland to go after a big name IE Iggy to replace Batum if the pick is Maclemore, Noel, Oladipo etc. or a solid bench if our pick is Porter. It also could possibly make Matthews expendable for a 1st rounder or a quility back up big or money to re sign Hickson as the 3rd big.

Orlando gets a legit 3 in Batum, can move Tobias Harris to the 4 permanently and they don't have to reach for Burke at #2 they could get a point guard like MCW or big like Adams to replace Vucevic.

Thoughts?
