    Everyone everywhere saying Thomas Robinson is available. The Rockets are targeting teams with the cap space to absorb Robinson's contract and are trying to cobble together a package that could include assets such as a trade exception, a draft pick or non-guaranteed contracts that they can be unloaded, sources said. The Blazers have draft picks, S.Pavlovic has a non-guaranteed contract, and the Greek kid Papa-something! What do you guys think?

    This team lacks bangers and players with an interior presence...at BOTH ends.  There are worse ideas floating around out there.

    I wanted to move up in the draft to get him; his time in Sac wasn't great/his fault; their "system" set him up to fail :(  I know a lot of ppl have given up on him, I haven't; he'll still b good in this league, he needs his confidence built up again + getting some burn, he can EASILY get playing time w/ us & start off being a force off the bench for us.  T-Rob's STILL got the potential to become a starter/show starter talent in this league; 4 any1 to give up on this guy right now is a mistake.  I c T-Rob's @ worst becoming the next ~ Brandon Bass (this ISN'T a knock); in the past (& even 2day ;), we need a guy like Bass (in the past I've pushed for getting him over here); w/ the price that we'd pay to get him, I DON'T c this as a gamble.  I say pull the trigger quickly on this!

    Anybody who throws it down over D.Howard is worth taking a look at.

    Factor in that JJ is more than likely leaving, this kid would be a great pick up.

    How much is T-Robs contract.  If Houston is trying to gain cap space to go after D12 then we might be able to hammer out a deal.  I think he would be a good addition but I would not want acquiring him to effect getting a good center.

    T-rob is third on the Houston depth chart for PF's.  He shoots at FG 43% and free throws at 54% and he does not play very much.  I do not think he is worth much and Houston seems to think he is worth more.  What do we think?  It would reduce our cap space if we went after him.  What would a decent trade look like for T-Rob?

    I can see it going like this... Neil gets a deal done behind closed doors with the Rockets to acquire Thomas Robinson and Omer Asik IF Dwight decides to sign with Houston, where he seems to be leaning towards right now. Since Free Agency doesn't begin until after the draft, Portland chooses the player Houston wants.

    Rockets Receive:

    rights to 10th draft pick

    SF Kostas Papanikolaou

    SG Sasha Pavlovic (expiring contract)

    Cap Relief

    Blazers Receive:

    C Omer Asik

    PF Thomas Robinson

     

    Seems like Houston really wants Cap Relief if all goes to plan, which could make Asik and Robinson tradeable. Also it could be a nice opportunity to sign and trade JJ to Houston because he could have the ability to start alongside Howard because as of right now Houston's weakest position is powerforward...

    Since Houston has two PFs playing before T-Rob so I do not think they would be hurt by trading him.  If we draft Houston's choice then what happens if D12 does not go to Houston and the deal falls apart?  Sounds like we may get a player we would not have taken.  We need to have a backup plan with Houston if D12 goes elsewhere.

    There could be other offers but I think mainly receiving the 10th pick, JJ Hickson, and Dwight Howard is a great return for Asik and Robinson in my opinion. I've heard the Asik-Howard tandem before but not a big fan of playing two centers ... Seems like the Lakers Pau and Howard lineup that really didn't pan out

    Oh and yes you are able to trade the pick but Howard wouldn't be able to sign with Houston until after the draft so we would have to pick. The deal wouldn't take place until after Howard would sign so they could trade Asik

    something i think may happen if CP3 decides not to resign with the clippers is Houston going for him instead of Howard...

    I see there a big Threat if they manage to get chris paul and an experienced PF !

    Imagine a lineup: C. Paul/ Harden / Parsons/ ex: D. West or E. Brand / Asik

    @ The Unholy, agreed ;)

     

    I posted this on a different post but consider...: "Char. r a bunch o' chumps lead by the biggest 1 of them all, MJ!  Hahaha!  1 of the best players of all time... absolutely.  Ultra crappy w/ basketball operations... ABSOLUTELY!  Let's fleece Jordan! :)

     

    Here's the deal w/ Char. that I would like to c THAT IS FEASIBLE PLUS it leaves us w/ MOST IF not MORE OF our cheddar:  Char. gets from us Wes, Freeland, & #10 pick; we get from them Biyombo, #4 (to take Oladipo), & M...K...G!!!  The $ works!  Char. assets come to $10,632,140 & Por. assets equal $11,384,132 (we'd get a trade exception of ~$751,992).  The question might b asked, "well... if this is so, can't we get all that from Char.(they would get the trade exception instead of ~$1,113,308) & NOT give up our #10?"  I don't think even Jordan would allow us to take him like that ;)  In order to sucker Jordan in, I think we need to give him our #10 also to give them a chance to further replace Biyombo/solve their center issues too."

     

    Now, IF we did this... we've got ~$14,908,926 (based on a breakdown by Blazer Fanatic ;) to spend this offseason ; w/ that, we should b able to lure CP3 over here for @ least 1-2 years so that he can give up all his secrets to Dame, turning our guy into THE best pg in the league & future HOF! :)  Also, I say we get involved w/ a 3-team trade giving up Sasha + a little $ (yes, this puts us over the cap BUT it will b worth it! :) if necessary to get T-Rob.  THIS team would b lethal AND an INSTANT contender!

    @ Siccolo, MOST likely ur right w/ Paul not wantin' 2 come here ;)  Generally, I too really wouldn't want to eat up all the cap BUT the only reason why I threw this 1 out there is bc, how often do u (aka Dame) get to learn from 1 of the greatest pg's in history?  Also, Paul Allen would love bringing him here bc of the merchandise sales; oh Siccolo, won't u think of the $$$$$$$ coming in?  Hahaha! ;p

    @ Siccolo, oh yeah, almost 4got, my vision of CP3 being here has Dame AND CP3 running in the backcourt @ the SAME time!  :)  W/o Wes, our starting 5 would b (w/o any problems from any1 saying they should legitimately start) CP3, Dame, LMA, Nico, & Biyombo (L8r when Meyers earns it, he can step in here ;)  Think of how fun that'd b to watch! :D

    CP3 would be a fine fit in Portland and the Blazers would be fierce is the half court with Lillard and Paul. Lillard would need to improve defensively but it would not be that hard to mix and match.

    @ Siccolo, Biyombo is similar to Ibaka (6'10" 235; Biyombo= 6'9" 245) & how we get him is as laid out in my "master plan" above; the $ to get the deal done works :)  I actually c Dame being more of the pg v. CP3 (even though he may b the best 1 in the NBA ;) mostly because of CP3's excellent defense (the Glove will teach Dame much BUT CP3's got some things to add/help reinforce too ;)  It's funny, this is what I c happening IF CP3 joined us:  in the 1st few games, Dame runs the show as pg ACTUALLY shows CP3 the ropes of how we do things in P-Town, then CP3 takes over (NOT a demotion for Dame; it's ALL about seeing how Paul does what he does 1st hand now), & then somewhere around the All-Star break Dame's back to the main pg & CP3 is more the sg/fills in where Dame misses.

     

    @ cmeese47, I've seen a little of what's gone 2day; we'll just talk Blazer b-ball.  Dame is a quick learner/mature beyond his years; I think he'll learn a lot from the Glove but I still think we'll need a little patience.  We should instantly c some noticeably different/good things this coming season from him but it will b in the yr. after that we'll really c this stuff sink in & become 2nd nature.

    Yeah and Chris Paul is one of the most pure pgs in the league curently. I love you but I still think that Biyombo deal is ridiculous... Love you doe lol

    I think sending our rights to Kostas Papnikolau and some second rounders to Dallas and try to snatch Robinson would be a good idea. 


    After we grab Robinson we can still try to do the Wes, 10 for 4th deal. If that fails then I would use the 10th and grab Dieng.


    Dieng, Lamarcus, Leonard, Robinson would be a decent front line imo. 


    We would still 8-9 mill in cap space so I would 

    Sign Ronnie Brewer

    Sign John Petro as a 3rd center and insurance 

    Sign Gerald Henderson 

    Re-sign Maynor


    Lillard/Maynor

    Wes/Henderson/Barton

    Batum/Brewer/Claver

    Lamarcus/Robinson

    Dieng/Leonard/Petro


    We would have a lot of assets and room to grow. We can always trade Batum or Matthews for elite player.

    @ Curvychloe, the major concerns w/ him for me r indeed his injury issues & how much it costs to get him (aka loss of flexibility).   CP3 could mentor Dame like no other (u gotta think each pg that's come in contact w/ CP3's gained something i.e. Eric Bledsoe) & he's the kind of guy that could get us another championship (he hasn't won 1 yet so u think he's gotta b hungry); these r the only 2 reasons why I want him here (in that order ;)  I don't know if he/his agent would do a 2yr. deal; I think he's gonna push for a 4yr. deal w/ some1 (bc in FOUR days, he'll b 29); IF he will only do a 4yr. deal, I say pass on CP3.

     

    @ billyamick47, actually... CP3 boasts a better fg% over his entire career v. Dame, CP3 had better fg% last yr., the yr. b4 that, the yr. b4 that, etc.  Don't get me wrong, Dame IS awesome AND he IS the man but have u watched CP3 score it?  The guys is STILL VERY good & currently, he IS better v. Dame (I hope to 1 day c the "changing of the guards" though ;)

    Grabbing Robinson and Oladipo would be awesome because if they pan out and reach their potential we can be dangerous. Also If they have produce they can be great assets to send to a team and bring in a star talent. Just like Olshey did when he got Paul


    Deron Williams, Melo, are two other examples of teams getting back good assets for a star. Still would be hard getting one to want to come to PDX. 


    What if Paul George wanted out of IND?? Wouldnt Batum, Robinson, Leonard be a good haul for the Pacers?

    solid line up until yu get to the c position might as well as keep hickson cause flaunting dieng as your starting center let alone trying to justify drafting him with the 10th pick is a step backwards he'd be a great pick mid to late 1st round

    Yeah the center position would be a problem even with Adams who I also like at 10

    The more Ideal situation would be trading Wes and the 10th for Oladipo

    Then use 18mil to sign a center and SG. Adding Robinson then we would be very good. Depending on the center we choose tho

    Simpson his FG% is better that does not make him a better shooter. Paul's three point shooting regressed significantly last year. Overall Lillard has better range but Paul takes better shots.

    @ cmeese47, true about fg% but I've watched quite a bit of CP3 (& every Dame game) & the guy has hit a lot of tough shots; I can c where u guys say Dame's the better shooter (he's damned it all good isn't he? :)  I want to believe Dame's the better shooter & maybe u guys r right, eventually it WILL b undisputable fact! :)  I guess, bc of Dame's inefficiencies (for now... ;) I guess that's what makes me hold back on saying he's a better shooter a bit v. CP3 & also, maybe I'm trying this time too hard not to b a Homer ;p  Ur last comment ^, I definitely believe that, "overall Lillard has better range but Paul takes better shots."  I love & can feel that it won't take long for THE Great Dame to become more efficient in all facets of his game :)

    Well if we pull off the move for Oladipo and can get a solid Center with our additional cap room then we would immediately be contenders for the west finals. I've already counted out Deandre Jordan and Chris Kaman. Neither of them is actually any good. My 1st options for that Center would be Dalembert, Mozgov and Spencer Hawes. Mozgov is the defensive type center we have been looking for. He would help us get stops late in games and wouldn't need so much game time that it would hinder the development of Meyers Leonard.


    Hawes would make our starting 5 one of the best in the league. He is big and can pass out of the low post. He also has a soft touch around the rim and can even step out and shoot the 3. He would fit into the Stotts offense perfectly.


    Dalembert is a naturally gifted defensive player. He averaged 2 blocks a game for the 1st 10 years of his career and is a good defensive rebounder. He also would only need to play 25-28 mins a game so Leonard would still get to play about 20 mins a night. We could also use Freeland and a 2nd round pick as trade bait to get a low 1st round pick and draft a scoring guard to come off the bench and back up the PG and SG positions.

    Dalembert is the best fit right now. Haven't seen much of Mozgov to make a decision. Spencer Hawes is more of an allround guy, and LMA is a better defender. Dalembert would be great.

    I also suggested trying to get Devin Harris. He is a free agent this offseason and if we get Oladipo for Wes and the 10th pick we would have more than enough cap room to sign Harris as a 6th man. He can play both guard spots and is a better than average perimeter defender. Adding veterans like Dalembert and Harris would really help us out. If we add another tough interior presence like we had from Pryzbilla it would make us a serious threat.


    I just thought of this too- what about adding Perkins? It seems that the Thunder aren't happy with him and he is pretty much the solid post defender that we clearly lack currently.

    Everybody seems to have given up on Wes willing to trade him and #10 for Oladipo.  I am not sure Oladipo is better than Wes.  Devin Harris' game seems to have gone down hill since he went through a series of trades.  Is Devin better than Maynor?  Would Devin cost more than Maynor?  I would still rather use our three second round picks to acquire a mid level first and use that plus #10 to move down in the draft to potentially draft Oladipo, Porter, McLemore, or MCW.  This way we do not touch the core group but add a good piece to beef up the bench.  We would then use Cap Space to go after the best center available.

    @ Ricky, I can't/won't speak any1 other than myself but I haven't given up on Wes; I stated b4 (a sorta "disclaimer" prior to any of my trade talks w/ Wes or Freeland ;) in another post that Wes is awesome/we STILL need him (& I STILL believe in Freeland) BUT... IF we can improve significantly (or @ least this gives us the possibility of it)... we gotta take it & I'm sorry but if that means trading away Wes (/Freeland)... then I guess that's what that means.  Rarely can u just dump trash & then then get gold in return; u r generally gonna have to give up something something valuable (aka something that means something to u) in order to get something else u want.  IF we end up trading Wes (/Freeland), I will STILL cheer just as hard for him (them) & wish him (them) the best.

     

    This is widely known to b a weak draft, I don't c any1 falling for just giving us a low enough pick even if we gave them all of ours (again, refer to ^ where I talk about things of worth ;)

     

    @ RipCity 14, I’ve actually been using that 1 for quite some time ;)  There was a posting b4 the season began where ppl were trying to come up w/ a nickname for Dame; I suggested “THE Great Dame” bc he liked/had been using “Dame” so I felt that making it to the NBA, he should have a nickname that really showcases him/his personality w/o trying to replace anything; THAT’S when “THE Great Dame” was born! :)  I personally like THE Great Dame bc it combines/keeps the nickname he likes AND tells ppl how awesome he is/how MUCH he means to us; to my knowledge, I was the 1st 1 to use it & if any 1 can find a source that predates my comment from way back on that post… let me know so I don’t keep going around saying I invented it when I really didn’t!  Hahaha!  Thx!

    trading wes for assets wouldn't be giving up on him. if it makes the team better than it's something i could live with. matthews value has never been higher as he is solid. i would love some younger blood in oladipo plus the cap relief you'd get would let you sign or trade for a center and pick up a bench. 

    off topic but i just wanna throw it out there that im gonna miss jj. dude had heart playing out of position and without plays being called for him. all his points came from hustle. if i could find a way to keep him i would but i just don't see it.

    @Ricky I would imagine that Harris will not come cheap. At his best though, he averaged 7 assists a game with the nets and had very little other talent around him and he can really be used as an additional weapon off the bench. Like I say, he is also a good perimeter defender which immediately gives him a leg up on Maynor. We would also have a reliable backup at the PG position in Harris. Having Harris around would also push Dame to be better. I see him as a good running buddy for Lillard as well. 

    The Hawks were also generally better with Harris on the floor but he wasn't given a fair shot as they went all in on Teague this year.

    Devin is playing sg instead of pg for Atlanta.  So maybe we could use him as a combo guard?  I liked Devin's game earlier and wanted to get him but I have cooled on him recently.  His shooting percentages .432 and 3 pt .335 and free throw .722 are not that good.  I think we could find someone better without using our cap space.

    I do like T-rob and we should be able to get him relatively cheap because he does not seem to be in the current teams plans.

    Paul Allen said how do we get better?  I see no activity in the draft with no draft picks.  The trade possibilities are limited because of the value of our bench players.  We have no cap space.  So I think the improvement of our b...

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
