It really depends

by Winterhawks03


I'm doubtful we have Jones for 2 years. It's not an impossibility, but it's a long shot based on the scouting reports.

Second, what Everett gets out of this is up for debate on it being a good deal or not. The obvious conclusion to come to is that a great player like Jones demands a high price, but that isn't necessarily the case here.

Everett is looking at getting nothing out of Jones without a deal - he was a lock to not report there. With that in mind, you can bet there are only a handful of teams out there who he probably would report to, and on top of that, chances are even less are actually looking at him in a serious manner.

Everett has nothing to lose here, and everything to gain. They're at no risk of competitive disadvantage in giving Portland a good player (because they will be rebuilding for a few years to come), and they weren't getting anything to begin with.

a 2 or 3 and a player would probably sound reasonable, but it wouldn't really be shocking to see a couple of picks and no player, either.

It's a win/win for both teams, honestly.
