    According to Marc Stein of ESPN.com, the Nuggets have interest in acquiring Nicolas Batum in whatever trade they end up making to move Carmelo Anthony ...

     Sources said that the Nuggets have registered strong interest in Blazers swingman Nicolas Batum and would naturally be unable to resist if a trade scenario emerged that enabled them to acquire Favors, Batum and future draft considerations. But the Blazers, sources said, continue to tell the Nuggets and all other interested parties (and yes, it's a long line) that Batum is not available.

    The Blazers do like Harris and almost crashed the September four-teamer with an offer to send Andre Miller to Charlotte to get the Nets' point guard, who was originally Bobcats-bound. But the Blazers dread the idea of parting with the blossoming Batum, especially in a deal that the Blazers don't end up with the best player.


    I LOVE the part at the end of the first paragraph, though the revelation that Nic is not available should come as a surprise to nobody, especially with how good he's looked in the first two games of the season. Who wouldn't have interest in acquiring a legit stopper who can guard four positions? And that's not even considering his budding offensive game.

    The real news here is that the rest of the NBA is starting to wake up to what we in Portland have known for some time, that Batum is a star in the making.

    Ewww, I cant imagine Batum in Denver... makes me cringe thinking about it.

    Batum definitely has been improving  greatly, and I would be terribly against trading him.

    Go Blazers!

    There are 29 other teams interested in Batum right now.  This article just happens to be about Denver.

    It's mostly about Denver. Melo would be the only player on the Nuggets I would even consider trading Nic for, but he wouldn't sign here anyway, so nuts to that. Batum forever!

    Any trade involving Batum would be a bad move for us even if we get Melo and he doesn't even want to play here.

    Well Cho already has the Rep of an Ahole, so sending away innocent poor ol Nic might not effect him.
    This is why i laugh, because so many of you are dead on cerrtain on how great the team is going to be this year, always imagining the championship. Yet you cant imagine that Melo would want to play here, even with how good you are this year, hahah, thats the funny part.
    Melo could play here, i mean, i dont think portland is going all the way this year, but he fools himself into believing it, he could easily see the Character and natural leader that Brandon is, efficient at scoring, heck this year rebounding haha. He looks at Aldridge and see's a guy who year in and year out plays like an all star, a guy who someday soon(hopefully this year) will be an all star. The veterans in Camby and Miller, you know he totally could buy all of it. But what would lose him, like me, is the bench. There is no incentive to come here if he and the 4 other starters literally score all the points.
    If he came, Portland could go to the finals, there and back with melo, have roy and melo become the new 1 2 punch.
    Batum For melo, any day, you shouldnt even have to think about that.

    haha i was just going to post this... I wouldn't trade Batum as he's shown GREAT improvement so far this year. He's a prominent piece in our future, but I would be interested in trading for Billups in the even that Melo does indeed get traded

    Yea, Denver..riight. You're not getting Favors and a player like Batum for a player who has already expressed interest in leaving.

    Melo's a better player, but I wouldn't deal Batum for him. It wouldn't be a good fit since Roy and Melo both need the ball in their hands to be effective.

    anyone who thinks getting rid of a player like Batum just in order to fill the roster with a superstar is completely insane. Paul Allen tried to buy a championship a few years ago. news flash: it didn't work. besides, as Casey said, Anthony is NOT going to sign with portland so it's really a moot point. the article says nothing about the fact that it would likely be a multi-team trade in which Anthony would go the other team. the blazers are building a championship-caliber team. the great majority of true blazers fans know this isn't going to happen overnight, and most probably not this year (as i understand it, the 1977 championship came as quite a surprise to the league).

    for this season, fans want to see progress, and the team is on the right track. the conference semis or conference finals would show that progress (hopefully the latter). Nicolas has loads of potential, has improved his nba game each year he's been in the league, and is even more valuable to the blazers than just what you see on the stat sheet.

    it's only been two games, but Nicolas is averaging 17 points and 8.5 rebound a game -- marked improvement over last year. that's not even to mention his defense and hustle. there's no legitimate reason to send that to another team, especially when we would lose in the trade.

    This is what I see.I saw that Rudy wanted to leave before we even got started,and now I see an active Rudy doing all he can.WHY?
    I saw a problem with Miller and BROY at the end of the season,now for some reason they see the bigger picture.WHY?
    There are things that happen behind closed doors that we can only imagine and hope come out for the better.With all things that has happened this off season for all our players,I can only conclude they had a meeting of the minds and grew up.I want to believe that it happened for Rudy too.There are vibes that happen to people that hang around each other for an extended amount of time,and it makes you feel things that words can't express.I believe this is the case with each of these men especially Batum.

    I wish more people knew what that feeling is about cause I think they do and it will happen more now than ever.

    I'm all for trading Batum, if we get really good value in return.  We have a history of overrating our own players, and getting Cho in here to take an objective look at the players was a great move.  Contrary to what TayC said about Cho being an Ahole, all he has done since he came in is put us in a much better position to take advantage of our assets.  Trading Bayless was pretty much a re-do as the 1st rd pick is only protected top 7 this year and top 8 the next 3 years, we should get a pick (to package and trade) anywhere from 10-20 for Bayless. Along with our 1st rd pick, 3 expiring contracts and a trade exception I believe.
    Sending him to Denver is a horrible idea and getting only Devin Harris in return is a horrible idea as well.  Devin harris' game = fast break, which we do absolutely none of.  If Nate decided to open up the offense a bit, Devin would be great but as of now he is about the worst thing we could trade Batum for.

    I wouldn't even trade him for Mello, he would not  really compliment our current lineup and with Nic and LA coming on we really don't need him and his ego. Besides that he hits like a girl. Remember that fight where he hit some guy and then ran away, what a  wuss.

    Because how hard he punches people should determine his basketball status..........
    All i was trying to infer, was that Batum, as good as he is now, and how much better he will become, is not and will not be as good as Carmelo Anthony. It just wont happen, he's good, and i believe the lot of you when there is talk about how much improvement he's shown, and how much better he can be. But , cmon, you could be a golf expert and still know that Batum could never be AS good as Melo. 
    The game is natural for him, he is incredibly unique, i mean love Bron (nohomo) but even i know that Melo is for sure more offensively talented. his post moves, omg.
    If the opportunity came along, where he DID want to come here, but you had to give up Batum, you know it would happen.

    As Kassandra once said " It really doesnt even matter what you guys think, the blazer's staff is going to do what they want/planned to do. You really dont have any say in it."
    Unfortunately, she's 100% correct. And more unfortunately, That Putz Cho would totally make that trade. I mean he just waived a promising and talented player, not only because he was injured, but they needed someone bigger to cover for the bigs THAT HAVE BEEN INJURED FOR LIKE 2 YEARS. 
    He also traded a promising young point guard, who was just getting a feel for the game, the team, traded for a DRAFT PICK. 
    YEA cuz there aren't enough ROOKIES on the damn team.

    @MykeD: Batum is averaging 17 points and 8.5 boards (3.5 off) a game right now, and top of that he is a lock down defender that gets under the skin of other SF's in the game (L. James, K. Durant, ETC.) that thrives to get better and has done so since the start of his career. So how are us BlazerManiacs over-rating him? Simply put, there's a reason as to why the media says he's the smoothest cat in the game, HE IS.

    @TayC:
    I wouldn't go as far as to say HE WILL NEVER BE AS GOOD AS 'MELO. Only time will tell, and from what I've seen this season, I'd say it's a strong possibility. Look at the mans work ethic, he strives to be great, each year he has improved like crazy, and unlike 'Melo my guy Batum is a lock-down, cut the lights, cold blooded defender. If he we're on any other team, he could be the face of the franchise. The whole hype around Miami is similar to what all championship caliber teams have, a group of talented players. Its a combination of chemistry and competition at the time that dictates whether or not a team is going to take home the gold. Look at the Lakers, could Gasol be the face of a franchise? How about Fisher in his prime? Or what about the Celtics? Pierce, Allen, Rondo, Shaq, & Garnett we're all the face of their previous franchise's, or could have been had they been with a different franchise. If the offense was based off of Batum, he could definitely put up numbers like 'Melo.

    @TayC: Oh and after doing a bit of thinking, and watching. I think the Bayless trade was smart. He obviously wasn't happy here, nor did he mesh with Nate's system, and that plays a part in the chemistry. Plus, it frees up minutes for my guy AJ. lol I'm sorry but I was sooo impressed with how the Blazers we're playing against the Clippers while he was on the floor. Ladies and gentleman, I think we have found our PGOTF. The energy that he brought was just amazing! It was like every time he stepped on the floor the team came out of their slump and everybody was on point. I can't wait for Millers contract to expire, even though the Veteran/Rookie combo works.

    Just because Miller's contract expires doesn't mean AJ is automatically going to start. I like AJ a lot but he still needs time and I'm sure it will be at least 2 years before he is even playing close to his potential and to be able to hang with the big boys night in and night out, and that is only if Nate plays him as much as possible starting now behind Dre. If we are really lucky maybe in one year, but I doubt that.

    And there is no way we trade Batum for Anthony, unless somehow we could trade for Melo and then trade melo for Deron Williams. I doubt that would ever happen but I think that would be the only thing that would be worth Batum. Obviously I think it would be a total waste to trade just for Melo because he would bounce as soon as he could, and I think the same thing about CP3.

    Trading Batum is a bad idea!!!  Especially since Carmelo may have secret plans to meet with Stoudemire and Paul in NY to, as said by Chris Paul in a toast at Carmelo Anthony's Wedding in New York in the presence of Melo and Amare, "Create our own big three here in NY".  So what would happen?  We trade out Batum who we all know is going to be extended or resigned for Melo at best who will only stick around till the end of the season?!  BS!!!  Keep Batum, trade Joel, Dante, and Andre if anything, but only for a high caliber player on an equal contract to theirs that might actually stick around.

    Batum for mello could never happen. It would have to be batum, recently aquired trade exception(wich is why you would trade a promising young point gaurd like bayless for a draft pick), an exspiring contract, and posibly a third team jumping in and taking another player from us. It's a prety high cost to rent a player. Of course If I'm mello I stay in the west because who wants to go through the east to get to the finals, It just got way harder back there. The west is his best chance. not saying we're championship material, but, we get alot better if, and thats a big IF, the bigs show up and are able to contribute this season. Bottom line ain't no way ain't no how.

    There is no one on Denver that I would trade Batum for, except Melo and he said he would not come here.  Expect the rumor has to do more with the pick we acquired in the Bayless trade.  We can help facilitate the move and pick up a valuable piece in say Harris or Randolph.

    all right, so i just ran some possible trade scenarios through the espn trade machine. a direct deal with denver for Anthony would be a disaster for portland. assuming the trade would involve Nicolas and Andre, in order to make the trade work, we'd have to throw in either Greg or Joel.

    there are some major problems there, especially at pg. we lose our only experienced pg, and it's very unlikely the nuggets would want to take on another pg near Billups age, even for one season.

    but here's the one thing very troubling with this scenario is that John Hollinger's projection is that the nuggets would increase their win projection by 18, and portland's win projection would drop by 28 games. even if those numbers are exaggerated, losing even nine or 10 games would knock us out of the playoff picture. nope, packaging Nicolas in order to obtain Anthony just is not a good idea.

    Yep, Hollinger didn't need to tell you that one. For a Batum straight up for Anthony without contracts in the equation would be a no brainer, but because that's not the case it's lopsided.

    yeah, just bored and thought i'd play around with that. Batum straight up for Anthony doesn't meet the salary requirements for a trade anyway. just for fun, i plugged in this trade and it worked: blazers get Anthony in exchange for Luke, Armon, Elliot, Nicolas, Rudy, Andre, Greg and Dante. it works, but it's stupid!

    If we can, trade Batum, Pryzbilla and the future 1st round draft pick we got, for Carmello that would be a no brainer.
    I like Batum and he has TONS of potential, but why not get that potential instantly by getting a superstar?!?
    It is a no brainer if we have the option.
    Imagine the starting lineup of Roy, Aldridge, Miller, Anthony and Oden with Fernandez, Cunningham, Johnson, Matthews, and Camby off the bench.

    another reason I love you, you think like a General Manager and would make a great side line reporter LOL.

    This is after game 3 and Nico's blocked shot along with LMA's Strip of course won us the game. That raised his value even more. But, like said Anthony wouldn't come here anyway, not enough NBA hype in Portland. If Nic had Anthony's big body, I think would be better then Anthony

    He wont ever be even close to as good as melo.  I think that Batum is a better fit with the blazers but Melo is arguably the best offensive player in the game.  He could probably score 35 per game if he wanted to.  Still dont know if I would do this trade since we would have to give up dre and Joel to make the trade work financially and because I think that Batum is a better fit for b roy and dre but there is still no way Batum will ever be as good as melo.  I like Batums work ethic and think he will continue to improve, but you cant teach power and athletisism, and those are the two main advantages melo has over batum.

    As much as I agree with keeping Batum, I think Cho would be an idiot and trade him.

    hg: not sideline reporter -- civil litigation attorney. i'm analytical, so i can think in terms of what options would work as far as the trade scenarios. what no one seems to be talking about is Nate's affinity for defense, especially at the sf position. Anthony is not a good defender and would definitely hurt us in that regard. sure, he may put up more points, but how many more points would the opposing sf score due to Anthony's lack of defensive effort and ability?

    no one knows what the future holds or whether Nicolas will ever be as good a player as Anthony, regardless of what grandiose statements some people want to make. i'll tell you this one, though: Nicolas will be a complete player, whereas Anthony is not, nor seems to have any desire to be.

    I always saw it as he wasnt happy here, because no one really gave him a chance? But ive been known to be wrong, on just about everything. haha.
    As for Batum and Melo, i only said that statement, because we have seen the type of player Melo is before, the all american, born to ball almost, franchise type of player. I dont see Batum as that player, i see Batum as the guy who takes the *Best Supporting Actor award. He is reliable, a stand up guy , backbone of a team yes, guy you can always count on, regaurdless of how Melo is doing(if they played together).
    You could be right though, heck he could get better, you know, i just dont see it, but perhaps its because i dont know enough about him.
    But i feel what your saying, about the Famous Faces type of attention.
    I am a fan of The Blazers ♂, the £-Train, and of course, The ¤ King. ™

    Leave Batum alone let him become an ALL STAR in Portland and by the way I would have ROY over Melo anyday now and in the future.  All we need is a PG for the future Miller is good for now but age is a factor with him. I think Armon could be it reminds me of a Avery Johnson but bigger and better defender he just needs more playing time. Armon can run the point with his eyes closed he knows the game and i believe in him  RIP CITY BABY!!

    Trade Batum?  FFS... get real.  Only starting posistion we could possibly get better at without killing our team is point guard.  However I think Andre deserves to get passed the first round.  Trading him to a team like the Bobcats isn't going to work.  I have too much respect for Andre to support a trade sending him to a bottomfeeder team.

    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.

    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...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
