I can't do this offseason without him! It's been almost 13 hours and there still isn't a comprehensive breakdown of our salary cap situation, our needs for next season, and our options going forward in the context of the CBA?! I'm sorry Storyteller - but I'm just getting a little impatient. If you could do me a solid, call in sick today and hop to it!
Personally, I don't expect a lot of big trades this offseason, as we have a pretty solid core and we don't really have any valuable trade pieces to net us much (as far as I can tell). I think that a lot will be done through free agency in the form of salary cap exceptions. I'd really like to know what all is available on that front. Also - which players we might be able to cut to shed salary for an FA signing - if that's possible. What are the rules there and what are our options? Help us Obi Wan Storyteller!!! You're our only hope!
Also, just as an aside, is anyone else as stoked as I am about the season we just had? For a team that was projected to finish in the "downstairs" of the standings, going 54-28 and winning a playoff series is a pretty epic run. Not only did we get to experience winning Blazer basketball again, but we got to witness probably the greatest shot in Trail Blazer history in Dame's epic 3 pointer!!! Love it. So proud of my Blay Blays.
