Quote

PORTLAND, Ore. — The Portland Trail Blazers tried to trade for Cleveland Cavaliers power forward Kevin Love, according to a report by The Athletic's Jason Lloyd.

"The only [trade offer] I know definitely equated to just a salary dump. Portland offered [Hassan] Whiteside and [Kent] Bazemore, which essentially would've matched Kevin's salary. But both of those are expiring contracts and the Cavs would've received no real assets in return," Lloyd wrote in a Q&A on The Athletic's website.

Not sure why Cleveland wouldn't take that deal and move on from Love.

We're currently in the 6 spot per tankathon and a 1.5 behind the 4th spot Timberwolves and 3.5 back of number 3 Atlanta.   I could definitely see us "passing" them two with the way things are going.   GS is supposedly getting Curry back soon but with them up 6 games on us I'm not sure there's enough time for us to pass them even if he comes back and they start winning so I'm thinking number 3 is the best possible scenario.

Markieff Morris has taken a buyout from the Pistons and forfeited his player option for next year.

This means no team was willing to trade a 2nd round pick for Morris.

Also, the Pistons must be looking to sign a big-man to a 10 day contract, as they only have Thon, Henson & Wood as active C. 

Might be an opportunity for Donta Hall.

The top 3 spots all have the same percentages for top 4 and 1st pick.  So there is no incentive/need to go any higher than #3.

Yeah I keep forgetting about the new lottery rules.    I still keep waiting for a prospect to break out from the pack this year and it still hasn't happened yet.  Right now I think I'd have to take Lamelo even though he can't shoot.  I think he is going to be a great facilitator so if we can surround him with shooters he could be a real asset.

Every Cavaliers player should be forced to watch that video, especially Kevin Love.  It's stuff like this that has turned me off to the NBA.

I especially love Barkley's finishing comment: "Y'all are a bunch of damn losers and I'm glad to get the **** out of here....you're a loser, you're a loser...."

I would hope that's what it means.  I would hope the Pistons would have accepted a 2nd for him.  But I would think a team would have given up a 2nd for him, even though it is pretty much assumed/known that Morris is opting out of his contract after this season.

I'm not too worried about how many "C"s are on the roster going forward to finish up the season.  I think the only priorities to finish out the season are developing whatever young talent is still around, and establishing the culture needed for the future.  I wouldn't throw tanking in there as a priority because this team is capable of losing just purely out of being what they are right now.
