seems like any SF available at 10 would be a little bit of a reach. MKG and Barnes should both be gone by then. I feel like 10 is a tad high for Jones or the kid from St. Johns

We may target Batum, but I don't see why Portland wouldn't match any reasonable offer thrown at him.

For those wondering, June 30th is the last day teams can put down a qualifying offer to restricted free agents i.e. Eric Gordon.
