    Third team. We almost had a three team deal in Feb where we ended up with THT and Noel for Dragic. Might be something they revisit with difference pieces since they like doing that.

    Noel has always felt like a good fit to me. Cheap, brings what we are looking for, can move his feet. Just wish he had an outside game, but for a big that wonít get very much burn and only play vs certain matchups I could really see Nurse getting a lot out of him.

    22 year old year old
    Already a Top 5 defender in the entire NBA.
    On an incredibly team friendly contract for the next 4 years. (his contract actually goes down each of the next 4 seasons. In 25/26 he makes 23 million. By the time we get there that might be only slightly about the value of the MLE).

    I do wonder about the injury stuff with him though. Hard to understand why he only played 28 minutes per game last year. His per 36 numbers paint the picture of an elite defensive 20/8/3(blocks) guy. if his shooting gets even slightly better and he stays healthy, he'll be a perennial all star in my opinion.

    I totally get why we would do it though.
    Well yeah thatís why Iím willing to give them OG and a pick

    Ok how about OG/GTJ/Flynn//33rd pick for JJJ/Brooks

    I'd do it still. I don't know if they would or not. It is definitely a more reasonable haul but they have a lot of quality depth already. And young depth. They'd still be giving the best player in the deal - on the best contract. If I were their GM, I'd keep JJJ/Brooks. They got a bunch of upcoming draft picks to fill in depth anyways.

    Don't get me wrong I love those targets as a Raptors fan. I just think Memphis would be thinking - "the only discussion we're having about JJJ is one that involves Siakam."

    1- OG, Svi and #33 overall to the Sacramento Kings for #4 overall and Donte DiVincenzo

    Then with the 4th pick, the Raptors could draft Jaden Ivey with that pick

    Then in this scenario your Raptors lineup

    PG- Fred VanVleet
    SG- Gary Trent Jr
    SF- Scottie Barnes
    PF- Pascal Siakam
    C- Precious Achiuwa

    Jaden Ivey being box office or close enough to that would be with your 2nd unit but you could use him much like you did Barnes in his rookie year. Donte he's a former champion with the Bucks and you could also have him in your 2nd unit.


    Or ...


    2- OG, Boucher, 2025 1st round draft pick and #33 overall for 2022 to the Phoenix Suns for DeAndre Ayton


    Then you would have:

    PG- VanVleet
    SG- Trent Jr
    SF- Barnes
    PF- Siakam
    C- Ayton

    Precious would still be there on your bench with 2nd unit with Ayton becoming your elite big for the future.

    My best guess is they really liked Portland's ability to absorb Grant full contract and create enough space for a max contract to offer this summer. I wonder if they've already been in conversation with Ayton's camp. My best guess after this is Ayton is a Piston next season. I agree the return seems low for Grant.

    It wouldn't shock me. I always think it is unlikely to expect a big trade, but I could understand it if a team really wanted OG and was willing to put together a really impressive package. And Portland can't be done after the Grant move. They are still not a playoff team in the West IMO.
