    There was no question CJ was going to get maxed. Paul Allen just throwing money around right and left, LOL.

    Who's a better basketball player: McCollum or a healthy Bradley Beal?

    This isn't that surprising to me. McCollum is an up and coming star that averaged 21 PPG last season and has had two good post-seasons. The way Portland has been paying players this offseason (and the rest of the league) this isn't surprising. I still don't know why they signed Crabbe AND Turner though. There payroll is insane.

    McCollum is a beast.
    What is more headscratching is the deals for Turner and Crabbe.

    Evan Turner just does not move the needle especially with Lillard, Crabbe and McCollum

    I think that just put Moe Harkless out the door. Could be that young up and comer at the three spot. I would move Brewer for Harkless

    Nobody should have a problem with it. Portland was not keeping him for any less, and they obviously had to keep him. It's just nice to know that we are getting James Harden for what others are getting 2nd and 3rd tier guys like CJ McCollum.
