The Church of Roy podcast is back to discuss the Trail Blazers’ decision to trade CJ McCollum to the Pelicans. Following Tuesday’s big move, hosts Brian Wilcox and Steve Dewald detail the trade package that the Blazers received in this weeks episode.
Both Brian and Steve emphasize the cap flexibility that has opened up for the Blazers over the last week. That said, a potential repeat of the summer of 2016 casts a shadow over the offseason(s) ahead. If the interim tag is removed from Joe Cronin’s title, is he the right fit for the GM post moving forward?
