Melo, Paul George and Durant walk into a bar...

Full disclosure I stole most of this from an ESPN comments section but I tweaked it, consolidated it and added some of my own stuff.... Anyways I thought my fellow Blazers edgers would like this,...

NBA salary cap projected to increase $5mill next season

2

"Sources told ESPN.com that all 30 teams were informed this week via league memorandum that an increase in the cap from this season's $58.6 million to $63.2 million in 2014-15 -- thanks to increased revenues -- is now expected. A corresponding rise in the luxury-tax threshold from $71.7 million to $77 million is also projected, sources said."...... According to Storytellerscontracts.com the Blazers are already at $63.9 mill on the books for next season (if Mo opts in and we pick up Barton's contract). Anyone understand how this affects the Blazers? does this mean that we wont get the $5mill MLE since we wont be over the cap or does this mean we have more money to work with or what?

Mason Plumlee has Blazer workout scheduled

3

Chris Haynes of csnnw.com is reporting that 7'0" Duke Center Mason Plumlee has a workout scheduled with the Blazers for June 19th. He averaged 17.1pts, 9.9rebs, 1.9asts and 1.4blks in 34.7min per game. Most mock drafts have him being taken in the late teens of the first round. His Draftexpress.com scouting video lists his strengths as physical tools, rebounding, offensive efficiency and post D. His weaknesses are listed as lack of versatility, lateral quickness, toughness and a low ceiling.

Likely buy out for paul pierce...

Its looking more and more likely the Celtics will buy out pierce for $5mill instead of paying him $15mill next season. I wrote a fanpost earlier this month speculating on a possible Blazer's lineup...

Mavs trying to dump draft pick for the extra cap space

2

Mavs are trying to get rid of the $1.6mill cap hold that comes with the #13 draft pick... I think we have some non-guaranteed 2nd rounders that could help them make this happen

Step into the mind of Neil Olshey

The more I look at, listen to and think of the many different ways us Blazer fans have attempted to come up with a way for our team to make it out of the slums and into contention, the more i don't...

And the Kings and their new owner win the draft lottery in...3...2...

6

Well its about to become official, The Maloofs were forced to sell their 65% of the team to the Ranadive group and the Kings will be staying in Sac... Now that this is over we get to look forward to the kings new owners being awarded a bright and shiny #1 overall draft pick courtesy of the beloved commissioner just like he awarded the Wizards and Hornets afterthey were purchased by new owners. So it looks like the best we can hope for is #2 lol

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Draftexpress video

Draftexpress did one of their strength/weakness videos on Caldwell-Pope a SG from Georgia who has been popping up in mock drafts as the blazes possible pick at #10.... reminds me of Barton with 3pt shooting and a little better D

Draft prospect Alex Len has ankle surgery

2

Alex Len C from Maryland had surgery on his partial stress fracture on his left ankle. Recovery time is 4 to 6 months and he will miss pre-draft workouts. Although analysts are saying he wont fall far down draft boards this likely will affect the Blazers as he was projected to be drafted in the range of picks 7-14. So this will likely shake up at least a couple selections and possibly was a player the Blazers were interested in.

aldridge cracks "Kia race to the MVP" list

he makes his debut on the list at no.10 mainly due to the fact that he is averaging around 20 and 10, that and because at the mid way point the blazers are surprisingly still in the playoff hunt.

First I need to say i feel that we really need to trade Luke Babbitt while his stock is relatively high after his performance from deep this year, I dont think anyone wants a rehash of a Rudy...
