I’d be very interested in the mechanics of an Anunoby to Portland for #7 trade. Blazers just used the McCollum TPE, so I’m curious to see the matching salary for Anunoby.
Assuming it were to happen, of course. – 8:07 PM

Trades I dreamed last night:
– Andrew Wiggins for Gary Harris and TJ Warren, somehow.
– OG Anunoby to the Knicks for 11 and two future firsts.
We’ve officially reached the stage of the offseason where my subconscious starts fucking with me. – 1:24 PM

Portland does not appear to be a legitimate landing spot for restricted free agent Deandre Ayton, sources said. The Trail Blazers are expected to retain starting center Jusuf Nurkic, and they are prioritizing Toronto Raptors swingman OG Anunoby in any return for the No. 7 pick in next week’s draft, sources said. -via Bleacher Report / June 16, 2022
