    From RealGM-

    KOC had this comment when asked if the Jazz would re-sign Fess:

    "He's next on the agenda," O'Connor said of the restricted free agent. "(We'll) go from there, see what happens, see if Portland has any more money left."
    Can't say that I blame him, but it's what you get when you allow your free agents to shop around instead of signing them yourselves.

    I'm sure he was joking, but as they say, there is always a little truth to every joke.

    How about YOU dictate what your players are worth versus having some other team set up some "toxic" deal for you to swallow. Can't wait to see how you handle Deron Williams next contract signing...

    Williams will be signed to an extension long before he is a FA. If they don't they are really dumb. As far as the comment, it's pretty childish, but funny. The reality is if Portland wanted to go into the Luxury Tax then they would have a LOT of money. They are being very conservative right now. So, my answer is "KOC, becareful what you wish for."

    This guy makes me laugh.  He should worry about signing the guys he thinks are worth it and not about what the Blazers are doing.

    Paul Allen said how do we get better?  I see no activity in the draft with no draft picks.  The trade possibilities are limited because of the value of our bench players.  We have no cap space.  So I think the improvement of our b...

    First Game starts tonight. Houston is a tough first round opponent and they play exceptionally well at home. If we can steal a game or two at their place, I feel like we have extremely good chances. 

    P.S. Would anybody happen to have a...

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.


    Thank God they are 19 games over 500.  Mayb...

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
