Portland Trail Blazers
Caleb Swanigan can only be traded by himself so there was no way to get either Dario Saric or Aron Baynes to the Blazers without taking back an extended contract or two – which I have been intentionally avoiding with these trades.
Plus the Blazers do not have a second round pick until 2026, so they can’t even do a second round pick swap as I have proposed in other trades.
So, there you go.
James Jones should have made a push to sign Carmelo Anthony when he had a chance.
