    Oregon Live: Trail Blazers: Armon Johnson tries to make the most of stint with Idaho Stampede
    "I'm just trying to embrace it," Johnson, the 34th pick in the 2010 NBA draft, said after Saturday's shootaround. "I'm doing my best to embrace it and just be positive about it. It's really hard for me just to ... be away from my team, you know?"

    ESPN: Chat With Chad Ford
    "Blazers are active as well, though things are bit different in Portland now. Kevin Pritchard was one of the more aggressive GMs in the league. Cho is more like RC Buford, Sam Presti and the like that wait patiently for things to come to them. Andre Miller is a big asset for them (especially when his contract isn't guaranteed for next season) and I've heard a number of teams are also interested in Wes Matthews. Only two untouchables I think are Aldridge and Batum."

    Hoopshype: NBA Rumors
    "You were drafted by the Portland Trail Blazers. Is the NBA in your future plans? Joel Freeland: 'In the future, yes. I'm not thinking about it now because I signed a long contract here and I'm under contract for three more years. But in the future, of course I do. The dream of all players is to play in the NBA. All of them, and if they say they don't, they are just lying. But if I go there, I want to go there to play, not to be on the bench.'"

    Off The Dribble: Roy’s Speedy Return Raises Questions
    ‘‘There’s a lot riding on Roy’s shaky knees, but not a ton to say. The only individuals qualified to discuss Roy’s injuries in detail are those with direct medical knowledge of his injuries. Everyone else is living in varying degrees of darkness. Unlike most facets of the game, this isn’t a matter for debate. There are no power rankings of Roy’s remaining knee ligaments, nor X-and-O breakdowns of his X-rays to discuss. His injury and surprising return are simply something to be acknowledged as all of those who appreciate Roy and his game hope for the best.’’

    Chicago Sun Times: Blazer backs off diss of Rose’s 'D'
    ‘‘Ah, man, he threw me under the bus, didn’t he?’’ Rose said with a smile. ‘‘No, everybody has their opinion. I know that I can play defense. It is what it is.’’

    Oregon Live: NBA High-5: Ducks fans might want it, but Aaron Brooks is a long way from a Blazers uniform
    "Adelman said the Rockets have no intention of trading Brooks -- reports of the Knicks coveting him have been rampant -- but there will be a chance for the Blazers to make a run at Brooks this summer, when he becomes a restricted free agent. What's not clear is if he would worth the effort.''

    DIME: Daily Fantasy Diagnosis: 2.9
    "Roy Hibbert: 8-14 FG (57%), 4-6 FT (67%), 20 Pts, 10 Reb, 1 Ast, 3 Stl, 1 Blk, 3 TO; He would’ve had an even bigger night if it weren’t for his foul trouble. Hibbert has bounced back since the coaching change for the Pacers and is a safe bet to be a steady player the rest of the way."

    ESPN: Daily Dime
    "They're a playoff team, they're probably going to be there and we have a chance of playing them," said Chris Bosh, who had 19 points but also had his hands full with Josh McRoberts and Tyler Hansbrough all night."
