    That is one really good player to be trading. I hope they are rebuilding now because if they don't go into full rebuild mode, they are dumber than a box of rocks.

    Might as well blow it all up and hold on to Lillard for the rebuild. All their players are either injured/leaving/trash.

    How much money would portland have to offer this summer? It feels like they might try to re-tool on the fly here...

    Batum isn't that good. I live in Portland and watch a ton of Blazer games. He's very streaky and injury prone. Good move for the Hornets though.. They could use him.

    Hornets are interesting...

    Kemba
    Kidd-Gilchrist
    Batum/Barnes
    Zeller/Hawes
    Jefferson/Biymbo

    with 9th overall pick

    There goes Wesley Mathews, I wonder where Aldridge would go. I would take Lamarcus over Smith any day of the week but twice on game days.

    I'm curious to see if he would come to Houston though, but I can also see the appeal towards going to a more disciplined organization in the Spurs.

    Wow... Batum for pretty much nothing. What if we trade Charlotte and we get Batum?
