I will always give props when props are due. Neil Olshey did the unthinkable and gave everyone in Rip City an unexpected gift with multiple moves before and shortly after the start of free agency. Meyers Leonard, Maurice Harkless, Al-Farouq Aminu, Jake Layman, Seth Curry, Enes Kanter, and Evan Turner are all gone while Hassan Whiteside, Kent Bazemore, Anthony Tolliver, Rodney Hood, and Mario Hezonja are all in.
Olshey managed to improve the team by adding shooters and versatility while maintaining flexibility with expiring contracts that can be moved at a later date. His efforts keep Portland in a position to be a factor in an ever improving Western Conference that has seen ridiculous player movement this off-season.
Chad gives praise to Olshey and his moves on the latest episode of the "What's Chad Doing" podcast.
