Portland was smart -- they started out slow and knew they needed to do something *fast* to shift momentum before the season was lost. They also saw how successful Dwight's campaign has been w/ the Lakers with a similar narrative: past-his-prime HOFer who was said to be dead in the water. Turns out Dwight is a real difference-maker and a treasure in the locker room -- on a non-guaranteed contract!
What does Portland do? Offer the same non-guaranteed contract. Rare instance of *no* risk / big gain payout.
*lot* of teams could use that 'Melo firepower off the bench right now.
