Me checking in on the Norman Powell thread.          

Oh. Ok. A top 3 coach in the league who won the championship two years ago and lost a hard fought 2nd round series last year is on the hot seat after 3 games. Makes sense, about as much sense as Powel

Just dropped Powell for Shake MIlton.  We'll see

I’m blown away tbh. Every time he wows with a huge performance there’s still some part of me that thinks he’ll regress... then he goes and does something like this. 43 points on 14 shots. What an absolute beast, Raptors need to throw a bag at this man because he looks completely unguardable nowadays. It’s not even that he’s benefitting from great guys around him - Toronto’s offense is pretty bad and Norm has been scoring at will even next to lineups with guys like Davis and Johnson who don’t command a ton of defensive attention.

Keep it up and please stay a Toronto Raptor!

Could be starting SF for them at the 3 with Covington at the 4.

I don't mind this move. His PPG will ultimately take a hit, as he won't be dropping 25 a game anymore...but shouldn't have a problem dropping 14-17 PPG nightly.

Just look at Norm's numbers as a 6 man last year for TOR.. going to be very similar and top 50ish...  of course he isnt going to be getting the shots he got over the last month or so.. but he will still be very valuable.. last month of so was found money with Norm with all the protocols and injuries in TOR.

Powell gonna be a 3pt specialist. Could be good.

Whose to say Lillard cant get his 30 and Powell/CJ each get 20/game.

It's not like CJ has been playing well

Problem is CJ never met a brick he didn't like he will shoot even if he's 1/100 and people forgetting a certain ISO King still plays for Portland

Dame/ CJ drop 30 each

Melo wants his 17 shots a game.

Nurkic coming back.

Powell can slot somewhere in there. I just dont know where

Ya people forgetting Melo still around. With the lack of ball movement could be ugly

they didn't trade for Norm to have a passive role..  he plays defense as well.. he's gong to get 28-30 minutes  night period..  but of course there will be an adjustment period

Worried about Norm's notorious Starter/Bench splits if they make him a 6th man. Hopefully Portland is smart enough to realize what he's comfortable at and they move Lord Covington to PF.

He's just too good not to get 30 minutes a night regardless.

NORM is a very underrated defender. What others have said is true.

They didn't trade Gary Trent Jr for Powell to sit on the bench. He will have a significant role.

I figure, they traded for him because he's just as good, if not a better defender than Trent Jr was, and he's a much better shooter and creator on offense.

But damn....Powell to the Knicks would've been great...

Lol CJ ain't gonna avg 30; maybe he gets it going by playoffs. Same with Nurk, who will still have to share mins with Kanter. Both are gonna be shells of themselves for a while. 

And if Melo steals too many mins/shots from Powell than that's a damn travesty. Melo should be nothing more than 6th man Vet, 10 shots a game off the bench.

Not expecting powell to put up the ridiculous numbers he has past couple months, but he could come close to 20ppg and prob shoot more 3s, still get steals, maybe less TOs
