LMA is on a great contract considering he's one of the best PFs in the league (I don't care where you rank him, 11 million a year is a good deal). Batum makes around the same but so far this year he's averaging around 20 a game with good D. So I'm glad he's working out.
And the 2 picks would be in the late twenties, so they're not that enticing.
So...........F that trade.
I like the pieces in place. They just need to put together a decent bench next year.
Aldridge only makes 11 a year? I thought he made like 14-15... in that case I agree Portland loses on this deal a bit. Although Griffin could become a top 3-5 player in his prime, something Aldridge won't touch.
