Blazers trade Winslow, Keon Johnson, and 1-2 second round picks

Jazz trade Vanderbilt

Saw this a few times around Twitter. Seems reasonable.


1.) 05 Feb 2023 19:53:16
Seems reasonable until you realize Danny Ainge is sitting on the other side of the table.

2.) 05 Feb 2023 21:13:14
Eh, I don’t see Ainge as a god like so many. He doesn’t steal in every trade he makes.

Portland and Utah made a reasonable trade last year.

3.) 05 Feb 2023 22:51:09
Think most teams in the league would painlessly beat that offer.

4.) 05 Feb 2023 22:51:50
If Utah goes in full rebuild, I don't think Winslow or Johnson would interest them all that much. I a couple of 2nd round picks probably hold the same amount of interest.

5.) 05 Feb 2023 23:03:29
Why wouldn’t a guy on a rookie deal that was a first round pick not of interest for a tanking team? That’s literally exactly what you’re looking to stockpile.

Are teams really easily beating a rookie deal and two seconds for an 8 and 8 bench big? Has the league gone this crazy? Or am I undervaluing Vanderbilt?

6.) 06 Feb 2023 00:44:59
@Carl especially considering the earliest 2nds Portland can trade is a 2024 and a 2027.



09 Oct 2022 17:18:28
Blazers trade Josh Hart and Keon Johnson
Nets trade Joe Harris and a first
Jazz trade Markkanen

Blazers get Markkanen
Nets get Hart
Jazz get Harris, Johnson, and a first.


1.) 09 Oct 2022 19:25:34
So Hart for Harris and a 1st, then flip both and Johnson for Markannen?

Not sure if Hart is worth a first for the upgrade for the Nets.

2.) 10 Oct 2022 00:40:39
Markkanen has always been a bit overrated. Particularly so in this proposed trade. Would not be a good move by the Blazers.

3.) 10 Oct 2022 20:19:16
If the Blazers can get Markkanen while only giving up those two, they should absolutely do it.



07 Jun 2022 23:21:52
Saw this one on The Athletic:

Blazers get 11, 2023 Dallas first, and Toppin

Knicks get 7, Keon Johnson, and Greg Brown.


1.) 08 Jun 2022 04:08:40
Who is the Knicks looking to get at #7 that they cannot get a #11? Duren?

2.) 08 Jun 2022 12:35:55
Could only think of Duren or Mathurin.

3.) 08 Jun 2022 13:52:01
One would assume this happens because the Knicks fall in love with one of the guys projected just outside of the top 6.



20 May 2022 19:16:23
Blazers trade Keon Johnson and 2025 Bucks first

Wizards trade Kuzma

I’ll admit Kuzma is someone I’ve had a hard time figuring out what his value might be around the league.


1.) 21 May 2022 07:25:31
his value is way higher than this trade offer. if that package can't get them Jerami Grant, then Kuzma is out of the question. i value Kuzma a little bit higher than Grant.

2.) 21 May 2022 12:32:19
Really? I value Grant a lot more than Kuz.

3.) 21 May 2022 15:48:49
I also assumed Grant had more value than Kuzma. But I think they’re very similar on the court impact.



05 Apr 2022 16:42:56
I’m really curious what Knicks fans see Randle’s value being. He’s a guy I’d love to see in Portland.

Knicks get pick 11 (NO pick from Portland), 1-2 future second round picks from Portland

Pacers get 2023 Dallas first via NY, 1-2 second round picks from Portland

Blazers get Randle and Turner (absorbed into trade exception)


1.) 05 Apr 2022 17:00:45
I feel like he has solid value still, he’s just not a #1 like he is on the Knicks. I don’t think NyK will want to attach a 1st with Randle.

2.) 05 Apr 2022 17:05:18
Wow Bmiller posted a trade. :)
I think this is fair value for Randle personally.

3.) 05 Apr 2022 19:22:17
I’m one to overthink everything so much that I just don’t post new ideas often.

4.) 05 Apr 2022 22:54:40
don't be shy. your point of view is appreciated.

5.) 06 Apr 2022 14:31:49
Turner has more value than a low first.

6.) 06 Apr 2022 17:13:51
A recent report said that Turner’s value is just that, a non lottery protected first. His health status and only having one year left on his deal don’t help his value.

7.) 06 Apr 2022 20:01:53
I meant non lottery pick, a protected pick. Not a unprotected pick. My wording there was terrible.

I made a comment about it, but should the NBA just ignore tampering during the dead period? It really doesn’t seem like a big deal.

Does Brunson’s agent making a preliminary deal with the Knicks change the actual outcome? I don’t think so.

I think that teams should be free to discuss deals the day after the Finals end. Why not?


1.) 03 Aug 2022 03:01:12
Not sure teams in the Finals are prepared to make offers at that time. They are usually doing close out interviews.

Teams that fire coaches/ GMs should be given time to make hires before FAs can talk deals. The GMs & coaches should have feedback on those players.

GMs/ FOs should not be distracted with FA signings at the same time they are scouting and mock drafting for the NBA draft. Just be focused on one thing at a time.

2.) 03 Aug 2022 20:19:03
I think the biggest thing to consider with that is that teams would still be tampering, they'd just be doing it during the playoffs, which would be worse.



15 Apr 2021 17:35:54
Sad to see Lamarcus Aldridge forced out like that. He was a huge part of the resurgence of the Blazers after a horrible decade.

Hopefully he gets his jersey in the rafters in Portland one day. And in the HOF.


1.) 16 Apr 2021 16:23:50
Kinda wondering if his medical condition was the real reason that the Spurs put LMA on the shelf earlier this season.



15 Dec 2020 17:23:34
Giannis with the max extension. How’s that guarantee he’ll be in Dallas going ddrainer?


1.) 15 Dec 2020 17:52:51
Also, does this totally change the outlook on trades this season for the Raptor fans? With him off the board, does cap space lose a lot of its value?

2.) 15 Dec 2020 18:56:58
I was thinking more about Miami than Toronto.

3.) 15 Dec 2020 19:08:07
Miami and Toronto will be fine. Contingency plans are always in their GMs minds.

4.) 15 Dec 2020 19:26:02
That James Harden market might be about to heat up.

5.) 15 Dec 2020 23:24:37
1st thing to look for from Toronto is OG's extension.
Maybe a Lowry extension too. keep the contract for a big dollar trade. if neither happen then they will deal at deadline to get roster into the shape they want for offseason.

6.) 16 Dec 2020 12:41:24
Aaaaaahhhh there's still Kawhi, Dipo, Gobert, and others. . .

7.) 16 Dec 2020 15:06:49
Are you really refusing to take on future salary for a shot at Oladipo or Gobert?

Kawhi isn’t an option, and you know it. He won’t go back to Toronto.

8.) 16 Dec 2020 16:22:36
You can't fully rule out Kawhi coming back. Honestly, we don't need to clear anymore cap space, but we're not taking on multiple years of contracts for Lowry.

9.) 17 Dec 2020 20:16:14
Dude Toronto done I say they miss playoffs just my opinion.

10.) 18 Dec 2020 15:07:43
lol II we can still beat your lakers just saying.



12 Dec 2020 19:39:05
Fredman, talk me down from the insane hype that Giles is causing throughout the Blazer fan base. He looked incredible.

Heat fans, same thing for DJJ. He was awesome last night.

It’s just one game, but the Blazers looked good.


1.) 12 Dec 2020 21:32:37
Giles a beast

2.) 13 Dec 2020 04:25:41
His knees will give out about 20 games into the season. His biggest problem in Sac was that he couldn't stay on the court. Whether that be injuries/ knee pain or foul trouble.

3.) 13 Dec 2020 17:24:45
Seems like that’s every big man the kings draft.



29 Nov 2020 00:06:53
Condolences on your center position Fredman. I can’t explain how happy I am that Portland took Kanter and Giles over Whiteside.


1.) 29 Nov 2020 03:54:43
Yea. But at least we are paying him $20 mil less than Portland did. Whole lot easier to cut if he doesn't pan out.

2.) 29 Nov 2020 05:35:27
Very true. I was happy with the Leonard and Harkless for Whiteside trade when it happened. I wish they hadn’t done it in retrospect.

It feels like the “Dame and CJ can’t win together” talk for years. Yeah, if you start Harkless, Aminu, and Kanter with them, they’re doomed. If the best forward that ever starts with them is Evan Turner, they can’t win.

Luka and Kyrie isn’t working because that team has one of the worst front courts in the NBA (and because Kyrie is a cancer) .

Fox/ Hali “didn’t work” because Hali was only 100 games into his career and they had one of the worst front courts in the NBA.

If Indy has a bottom 10 front court with Haliburton and Luka, it’s a disaster. If they can surround them with shooting and defense, it could be amazing.

So all you need is for one of your guys to turn into a top 12 all time player? That sounds easy….

Giving up the #1 pick when the guy available is a top 5 all time prospect for anything but an all time great isn’t playing chess. It’s making poor short sighted decisions.

The only way Luka and Banchero are a bad fit is if they’re selfish idiots and bad teammates.

Concerns over fit are almost always people overthinking the logic of “great player plus great player equals great basketball”. If Banchero comes anywhere close to his ceiling, that duo wins a lot. A lot more than Banchero and Franz, because Franz is simple no where close to the quality of basketball player as Luka.

It seems more and more likely that Bronny isn’t undrafted. He’s jumped into the top tier of recruits in some rankings and ESPN projected him as a top 10 pick.

But yeah, with Lebron’s extension, it’s hard to see him playing with Bronny in his rookie year.

How many games are guys really missing due to load management? Without in depth investigation, I was just looking for guys that missed just one consecutive game. Outside of Kawhi (who has 9 games like that, all in the last 45, so he’s sitting 1 of every 6 games) I couldn’t find another star with more than 6. Most are in the 3-6 range.

So we’re really acting like the worst thing the league has ever seen is guys resting 3-6 games a year. Really?

It seems like an overreaction to basically just Kawhi.

Lebron won’t hit the minimum games played to qualify for the scoring title. If you want to bump that number up? Sure, that’s fine. 58 seems low. Make it 65? That’s fine.

Fredman: Would you rather have your best player play 24 minutes a game for every game, and lose because your star is only playing 2/ 3 of a normal minute load? Or have them play a full 36-40 minutes but miss 1 of every 8-10 games? Give me option #2 for a better chance to win.

What players are sitting half a year due to soreness? Kawhi this year on his pretty extreme loan management has missed 9 of the last 45 games. Not very close to half.

Loan management really feels like an overblown issue over a couple games here and there. Guys aren’t sitting half the season unless there’s a real injury (or unless the team tells them to sit so they can tank) .
