Feels like he’s been on the trading block for the past 5 years


MSKOnlyScans

Struggling with my "Always on the Trading Block" starting 5 PG - Malcolm Brogdon SG - Terrence Ross/Terry Rozier SF - Buddy Hield/Harrison Barnes PF - Jerami Grant/John Collins C - Myles Turner


b1oconnor

Its those tiers of players where you're perfectly happy keeping but would move in a second for a better player.


CrAppyF33ling

Also the same tier of players where you're hesitant to give them what they want money wise. Some do and then once you want to trade them, it's harder to move them.


ELITE_JordanLove

Remember when the Bucks were on blast for not keeping Brogdon lol


hoodiebrando

they still should’ve kept him over bledsoe even despite his injury history, i don’t think it was as much of a concern at the time


Trailbleezers

Overpaid but good players


RobbobertoBuii

throw in Ricky Rubio as well


CatDad660

So the pacers.. just add tj warren 😭


nujabes02

Tj Warren was a figment of your imagination. He doesn't exist. Are you okay??


TiksonBobikson

Kevin Love's been on the trading block from like 2014 until last year lol. This was his first trade rumor free season in a decade.


Hendo8888

3 Pacers in the starting 5


FKJVMMP

Well yeah, if you want to always *almost* be traded you need to be good but not **that** good. The Pacers are “Good But Not **That** Good - The Team”


nametakenalready

They are basically made up of "the third option on a championship team" guys


iamgarron

I mean when healthy TJ Warren is also a trading block all star

deeznutz_428

The absolute disrespect to Eric Gordon


macroball_pod

Cj Mccollum happy to be off this list I would imagine


cbtballers

He hasn't really been on the trading block necessarily, but Bradley Beal is in the HOF for trade rumours


free_kark

Solution: give Seattle or Vancouver back their teams and this will be their roster


dat_waffle_boi

Aaron Gordon was a staple of this team for a hot minute


plushPudding

Tristian Thompson got snubbed


Iginlas_4head_Crease

Nah he's starting center on the buy out squad


[deleted]

Add Sexton


[deleted]

When was Grant on the trading block?


goobergaming43

He’s always been “rumored” as a guy everyone wants to trade for but in reality, I don’t think he’s ever been made available


SmokeOddessey

people theorized they signed him so they could flip him for a first during the deadline since day 1


1850ChoochGator

Basically all year 😂


FuckFashMods

Who's pic was it for Simmons? I say throw them in as 6th man


1850ChoochGator

CJ until this year

You can't convince me that Terrance Ross and Jeremy Lamb are different players.


grammercali

I forever confuse Alex Burks and him

CaptainBananaFish

Please don't bring your trash "coming in peace" trade proposals to our sub lol


illhavethatdrinknow

Yo fr those are annoying af and pointless. What we supposed to do? Call up our team GM to push the Reddit trade idea through?


asthmajogger

I come in peace, Tatum,Brown and Smart for Kemba and Randle?


illhavethatdrinknow

“Who says no?!”


Kanye-West-Ham

Throw in Taj and a First


Doctor731

The point is discussion. I might not know as much about X player or how their team values them precisely.


illhavethatdrinknow

There are exceptions to everything, but most of the time they’re egregiously lopsided


groundbeef10

my goodness, I hate those "[insert team name] fan coming in peace" posts


FKJVMMP

But we’ll give you Jordan Nwora and a tissue signed by at least three Antetokounmpos!


PillsburyToasters

T Ross might me worth a little more. Spice things up and throw in a jar of Giannis’s shower water and a book of dad jokes signed by yours truly. Hopefully then we can call it a day


JayJax_23

Your gonna be scary in a couple of years


CazOnReddit

Two seconds for Mo Bamba and Khem Birch back


cjd978

Hey man Portland fan here I come in peace XD. Just wanted to propose a trade where we get all your good players. Let me know what you think. Y’all gonna be a problem!


pskill43

He can be the next Jordan Clarkson


ninety4kid

I was just thinking he needs to go to a place where he could thrive as a 6th man and contend for 6MOY again. I always thought he would've been perfect for those Harden/MDA Rockets.


greg_kinnear_stan

I would take him off the bench in philly


mohub21

What do you think his trade value is


Ellimistopher

Late first has always seemed like the target price but at this point maybe a protected pick with some project role player


greg_kinnear_stan

Great question lol. Springer maybe? I don’t see a first being worth the value for him so like springer and kork and a 2nd maybe


Blazerfan503

Bring this man back to Portland!


diipp2k

Jefferson legend


600jasper

Lmao, I guess dude doesn’t want a free ring. Good riddance. Shits gonna hit different when he gets swept by Markelle Fultz and OnlyFranz on their way to the finals next year.


FearDaJoker

Bro what😂Orlando have no shot at winning next year. No one on their team is top 50 in RAPTOR😭😭keep dreaming kid


ChrisTheMiss

pels magic finals next year. magic in 7. wake up, neph


Cold_Carpenter_1798

Yeah dude they play in Orlando not Toronto, no shit


FearDaJoker

No not raptor as in Toronto Raptors. Raptor as on RAPTOR. It’s basically a stat which cumulates all stats and determines a players overall impact on the court.


themariokarters

You can understand that but not that dude’s sarcasm?


Cold_Carpenter_1798

Pretty sure he’s a troll


RobtheNavigator

I’ve never understood the appeal of just going around being vaguely annoying on purpose


depressedbrokesingle

Sometimes it's fun to see how many downvoted you can get in a single sentence.


RobtheNavigator

Meh, I don’t get it. I don’t mind getting downvoted when I’m talking about something I really believe in or care about, but aside from that each downvote just represents another person that I upset or annoyed, I don’t find that fun


Cold_Carpenter_1798

He’s masquerading as a jokic stan so maybe he’s just trying to make jokic stans look bad lol. Hence the obsession with advanced stats


Cold_Carpenter_1798

Don’t cumulate anywhere near me please


youfeelme1997

Tbh orlando prob got a chance to win 60 next year


KnoxsFniteSuit

Lmao 60 Zaxby's? I know you don't mean 60 wins


youfeelme1997

We were all being sarcastic


KnoxsFniteSuit

Well this is embarrassing. I thought the raptor guy was being sarcastic but didn't think the responses were 😭


FearDaJoker

That’s not what the analytics are saying


Warlandoboom

Orlando downright spooky rn, you're high


SwaggingUp

I used to have so much respect for you


dehua_

found the jokic stan


FearDaJoker

And proud

538 uses draft position in its predictive version of RAPTOR, PREDATOR. The descriptive version of RAPTOR does not use draft position, height, age, etc in its calculations.


CornColonels

You don’t have to do this buddy, plenty of Nuggets fan cringe to go around without you pretending to be a fan


FearDaJoker

Nuggets fans aren’t cringe


StraightBumSauce

Man, Jokic stans love to use flawed stats


HotdogIsaSandwitch

I’ll take him over the combo of Trey Burke and Sterling Brown, all day.


ICouldEvenBeYou

He costs more too.


Cold_Carpenter_1798

Can’t blame him


AggravatingFinding71

The Heat and Pacers will trade for him just so he doesn’t fucking slaughter them for no reason every year.


[deleted]

[удалено]


jgman22

Yes


Coltshokiefan

He’s given us a few good seasons and not made a fuss about playing here at all. Send Ross where he wants, we need the minutes for young guys anyways.


DreTownblues

Ross for Nesmith?


bllr32423

I would love this but I honestly doubt his value is any more than a few seconds


Harman3112

Ur overvaluing nesmith


bllr32423

Probably but I feel like there’s a lot of untapped potential with him and going to a team where he can get consistent min would do a lot of good for his development


Harman3112

Possibly, but he has Tatum and brown taking attention away from him and he still can’t be productive


jpaxlux

He started hitting shots towards the end of the season. It's still possible he carves out a role next year with Boston, the injury just fucked him this year because he didn't come back until close to the playoffs.


Harman3112

That’s fair, injuries really can rly delay growth of a player.


CazOnReddit

We'll give you back Birch if you give us back Ross.


dub-fresh

Come home baby


Whaletiddies

Will be sad to see him go but completely understand


bllr32423

I imagine the FO will do right by him and send him to whatever contender he wants to go to


Varolyn

Lakers have nothing to trade for him


MINN37-15WISC

Bron will give them TT, Shump, Nets pick


Varolyn

THT


2022-Account

Negative asset


GlueGuy00

still younger and better than Ross


JoshSran04

We neeed him🤤


_Juntao

Lakers is my guess


SpeedMalibu

Celtics could absorb him into the TPE if Brad wants another capable wing


Rrypl

We could use a hooper from the bench for when the offense gets stale.


[deleted]

I’m surprised there hasn’t been more Russ to Orlando buzz. They’ve got $40M in cap space to use this summer. They could sign some vets or resign Gary Harris and trade them + Ross for Russ and some picks.


madmaxp0618

What picks are they gonna get from the Lakers to make that worth it?


[deleted]

We have the 2027, 2029 1sts and a bunch of 2nds.


Wilt69

There isn't a point for either team. Magic will likely want to see what Isaac/Fultz look like coming back from injury. Lakers aren't getting fixed cause they got Terrance Ross. A THT for Ross would be far cleaner/easier instead of Russ and was discussed at the prior deadline.


madmaxp0618

Getting THT would also further complicate our guard situation. If anything we’d be looking for forwards or a big.


Wilt69

Yeah you guys are pretty stacked in that department with Fultz, Suggs, Anthony and Hampton. THT has a more of a wing frame with his wingspan but he's a bit undersized at 6'4. Much better to just focus on Cole/Suggs development.


InAingeWeTrust

and you probably want better spacing than THT considering your (likely??) starting guards next year of Suggs and Fultz weren’t good three point shooters this year


CaptainBananaFish

Why the fuck would we waste that cap space on Westbrook? Lakers don't even have enough assets to give us something remotely worthwhile for taking on that contract.


[deleted]

For picks. It’s just one season, then you have the cap space again.


Kadler7

lol


2022-Account

Magic say no


messejueller21

Why the hell would they want Russ? I'd take Fultz over Russ any day of the week.


CaptainBananaFish

posted this elsewhere but this is pretty impossible given their salary situation. They would have to trade THT, Bazemore, and Stanely Johnson, just to be able to match salaries. If Kendrick Nun opts in this summer ($5mil), that could add more options. But they only have 7 players under contract for next season (if we assume Westbrook and Nunn opt in) and they're $20mil over the cap. They're not trading multiple guys for Ross lol.


DemondWolf

What happened to this dude?


heshouldgo

He’s a Laker


CakeBossUltimate

We been aware for 3 years


Captain_Charisma

How is he still under contract at this point? I swear he's been rumored to be traded for 4 years, you'd think he'd be a FA by now.


Kingalec1

Finally a player who wants to win a ring . Send him to charlotte hornets.


Cudizonedefense

Thank fuck. This dude kills us


MediumLong2

My favorite artistic depiction of a trade discussion involving Terrence Ross: https://youtu.be/tcUh_InsSUw?t=98
