Saw Mariner Down imply CJ was under 6'2. He's 6'4 with long arms. Reasonable size for a SG and great for a PG.
I agree that his primary value is as a secondary ball handler right now.
CJ has some great footwork and as he gets older and stronger he should start getting pretty hard to stop. Right now the double teams seem to give him some trouble because he isn't strong enough to hold his ground.
If he keeps getting minutes though I think he has a good shot at ROY. I mean who else would it be? lol... especially if CJ helps us get to a great record. Because all the other decent rookies seem to be on bad teams and really aren't accomplishing much win-wise.
CJ: 6'3.25" in shoes at combine. His wingspan measured at an average 6'6.25". Compare that to Oladipo who measured an inch more in height, but 3" more in span.
That is a small SG in the NBA.
Lillard measured 6'2.75" with a 6'7.75 span.
That is a small backcourt.
those might be the numbers but he looks tall on the court and his length is challenging for a lot of people when he is defending. One thing is for sure, he's taller than Mo Williams, so size-wise he is the better option currently.
only way i would ever trade cj is for star player someone who we think cj wont ever be better then, Or package Cj,Freeland,claver,Crabbe as a young package this off season with our 2016 pick for a All-Star
Mo either will have it or wont, any givin night and he's a chucker, he forces shots with open men every game, he does bring vet leadership and scoring ability but when he's not making his shot he still takes them which has hurt our team alot already
I don't see any major moves by deadline but I can tell u
I don't see any major moves by deadline but I can tell u that if our team D doesn't improve we will be knocked out in 1st round. Lilliard is a top 5 pg offensively but an extreme liability on D... Either he needs to adjust that Quick or Matthews and Batum have to step up huge individually!!!
What if Blazers do this...
Mo and Claver to Washington
Seraphin and Maynor
- giving us a more true PG to run the team and giving CJ more of the scoring possibilities. Also getting us a post scorer off the bench with upside as our future Center.
- giving Washington their backup PG they are looking for.
THEN WE CAN.
Leonard, Wright and 2nd
Salary works on all 3 trades and this would address our 2nd scorer off the bench. The Dunleavy move is more believable but the Chandler would be more ideal. Get Wright outta here so they can take on Leonard.... I doubt there is any interest in him anymore but let's hope
Batum/Wilson or Dunleavy/Barton

I have always liked Chandler. Plays tough and would be a good fit for this team.
One of the best under the radar free agents signings went from Wright to Wrong in just a snap of the fingers. What happened to the guy? I liked Wright's role on the team early on.
Why is no chatter... Are fans on all star break as well.. Saw idea of this today... WOULD ANYONE CONSIDER???
the Blazers would get Asik, Omri Casspi and Donatas Motiejunas in exchange for Matthews and Meyers Leonard:
I would maybe consider CJ McCollum in Matthews place but even my zeal for that deal is waning with every passing performance from McCollum.
Let's see how far this core goes this year and if we have a problem we can attempt to address it in the offseason. Who knows, with all the players who apparently want to come here by waiting we possibly gain leverage in any trade negotiations.
