An old article from Blazersedge's sister site Clipsnation, revisiting the moves Olshey made for the Clippers until his last trade deadline with the team, including the Chris Paul acquisition. He finally had acquired the star he wanted for a package around Eric Gordon - who remains disgruntled about how that trend went down. But had also famously lost a first round pick before (which turned out to be the #1 the Cavs used to draft Irving) in the process of trying to get the PG position fixed with Mo Williams. And the roster remained very imbalanced in terms of positions, while keeping everybody on board he had brought in. Right now the Blazers are at least one starting center short, but the rest of the roster looks fairly balanced even though we now have 4 SGs again (not counting Pavlovic). And Olshey has gotten rid of what he seems to consider some mistakes of the previous management. Is he in a better position with the Blazers as they head into free agency to bring in the next key player(s) to have more assets - remarking during the draft press conference that we currently didn't have the pieces to move up even a little in the top 10 - and keep the team's all-star happy? Has he learned from past mistakes? Is Paul Allen more or less patient than the Clippers ownership to move back into "win now" mode? We'll find out.
