    Chris Sheridan, a senior writer for Espn.com, is reporting this morning that the Hornets and Raptors are close to finalizing a deal that would send Jerryd Bayless and Peja Stojakovic to Toronto for Jarrett Jack, David Andersen, and Marcus Banks.

    The Blazers will have more options as well in December, with Wesley Matthews becoming a marketable asset.  I believe Wesley is here to stay however, or at least that is my hope.  Nevertheless, this pending deal with Toronto and New Orleans is a reminder to all, that this is, indeed a business.  Hopefully Jerryd hadn't gotten too comfortable in New Orleans?  From all accounts locally, Jerryd was a pillar in this community and much publicized was his work ethic.  I wish him the best

    Wow, one former Blazers PG traded for another former Blazers PG. Jarrett has worked hard to get into that starting spot, but he'll go back to being a backup in New Orleans. The opposite is probably true for Jerryd, who will we free to run wild. This is an interesting one. Thanks for posting it.

    I just mentioned this on Twitter, but since Toronto already made their one yearly visit to the RG, that means we don't get a chance to welcome back Jerryd.

    I'm not sure if I like the trade if I'm either player. Jack went from starting all 13 games with the Raps and getting close to 30 minutes a night to backing up the best pg in the NBA. Unless he's going to see time at the 2, then his minutes will go down.

    As for Bayless, how is your confidence not shattered at this point? Sure he'll likely get more minutes, but he would have been able to learn so much more underneath CP3 for the remainder of his contract before he went elsewhere. Maybe he flourishes there, who knows, but not many people can say they go to Toronto and resurrect their careers.

    On the surface it look like a good deal for NO, but couldn't they have shot for the fences a little bit more by using Peja's 14 million dollar expiring contract?

    toronto is the team that the world forgot... they get lost up there, no one cares about them. if that trade goes through, say buh bye to any hope of stardom for bayless.

    it also really doesnt make sense to me, why NOH would want to make such a major trade when they are doing so well to start the season. i mean... i guess its not really a MAJOR trade, but its significant enough. why not see where the team you have takes you first? i guess they do need to free up more money for CP but you have all season to do that...

    crappy deal for New Orleans.  They got rid of Bayless, who unlike Jarrett is young and has room to improve, and they just got barely anything for pejas 14 million dollar expiring contract.  They could have used that to aquire someone like melo

    Very good point, if the trade does go down the only upside is he'll get minutes. 

    I'd would rather get less minutes and play with one of the best PGs in the league. Either way both guards lose something in the trade.

    Armon is way better than bayless since he can actually shoot and defend instead of only being able to score at the rim.  I'm glad we traded him since it freed up minutes for some of our other players, put us in good position to make a trade, and also since I just didnt think Bayless was that good.  Only bad part of trading him away is that he was still young and can most likely eventually improve his passing ability and his defense at least a little bit.

    i feel bad for jarred.  does not sound like a good deal.  poor guy goes to the team in the league that everyone has forgotten is right.  i hope he can land somewhere else when his contract is over and become the player he is meant to be. i miss jarred he was a great guy here in portland. too bad he wont get that ovation and welcome back from us fans. i wish im well.  this trade does not make sense if it goes thru!

    Since nobody else has said it, this is a confirmed deal and awaiting approval from the league.  However it is being marked as two seperate deals since Bayless cannot be included in multiplayer deals til Dec.  ESPN confirms

    wow, i mean that sucks that bayless cant unpack his luggage without being shipped away, but he might shine a little brighter on that Toronto team, and perhaps meet Drake!

    Idk if Matthews is really a "shoppable asset" but if he is man, he could be replaced with a player that could aid in the "missing link"
    Wesley and someone else or a Draft Pick, could land us a decent Center, or PG if we play our cards right.
    But i really want to see if Armon can stand up to the challenge of being a number 2 PG, i believe in him, he just needs a chance. so i would focus on the Center position on that one.

    If i could make the trade, id ship him right back to Utah for CJ miles.
    WHOOOO Miles is good.

    But Jerryd seems happy with the trade. He just wants some minutes, nothin' else.

    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...
