On the strawpoll I had, only 4 people voted, and it was a 4-way tie. What I just did is that I just spun a wheel three times, and I landed on the Blazers, then Celtics, then the Warriors, then the Other vote(whoever voted "Other" please let me know which team).

ALSO PEOPLE NEVER NOTICE THAT I SAY THINGS LIKE THIS BUT IGNORE THE PLAYERS GOING TO THE THUNDER, THOSE PLAYERS ARE BEING "TRADED" TO THE THUNDER BECAUSE IT IS AN ASSUMPTION THAT THESE PLAYERS ARE BEING LET GO

Alright, anyways, Portland has improved from almost missing the playoffs last year, as they are the 6th seed, and I believe that these moves can improve their roster:

  1. Trade for Domantas Sabonis: Some of you may recognize this trade, as I made it about a month ago(here is the link to that:https://tradenba.com/trades/X-k7SUzT8 just in case you wanna check it out). I believe it makes too much sense, as Domantas's dad, Arvydas played there, and also Domantas was born in Portland. I believe a Sabonis-Nurkic frontcourt would be a pretty nice fit, and Portland really needs help at the PF position. A big 3 of Dame-CJ-Sabonis would be very fun to watch.

  2. Bring back Enes Kanter and Carmelo Anthony: Melo should be brought back because he has said that he found a new home, and he believes that it is in Portland, and he has been a good scorer coming off the bench. Enes Kanter is one of the best backup Centers in the league IMO, and he can provide some good scoring and good rebounding off the bench. He even had 30 REBOUNDS one game(I LOST THE GAME), which is a franchise record. These pieces should be good ones for the 2nd unit

  3. Let all other free agents walk/Sign TJ McConnell: With all this cap cleared up, the Blazers should use someone that can play a backup guard role after they lose Anfernee Simons. McConnell is someone that can help this team on the defensive end, and is a really good playmaker that this bench could use. With this signing, it gives them a true floor general that can be another really good piece coming off the bench.

After these moves, the Blazers give themselves a nice squad of:

Dame-CJ-RoCo-Sabonis-Nurkic with a bench of McConnell-Jones Jr.-Melo-Kanter
