    When it comes down to it, there are 2 sure ways to revamp your line up.  Either Paul Allen has to be willing to open his pocket book and pay to bring another player in.  Or Portland needs to go back to the drawing board figure out what we need.  What we need hasn't changed, we need a big who plays back to the basket, commands a double and allows ROY and LA to roam.  Like they love to do. 

    I say re-tool, Roy, Oden (who is likely gone anyway) and LA are young still.  I say shelve Roy for the year, get a high draft pick, and re-tool.  Next year you will have a healthy super star, possibly have GO ready to go, and have a legit rookie big.

    No matter how much Paul Allen is willing to shell out for another player, it just won't work. This isn't Major League Baseball where there is no salary cap. Portland will be over the cap for the foreseeable future and only able to sign players for the Mid-Level Exception (such as Wesley).

    if we got a high draft pick, what position would you target?

    D, I think careful consideration will be given to simply selecting the "best available player".  Lately, drafting for position hasn't seemed to work out so well for this team.  Remember too, that an entirely different mind-set is in that GM chair at the head of the War Room table come draft day.  As mentioned on the MSP this morning, their isn't a restriction on how much an owner can spend on a COACH.  While I am not a Nate basher, I do wonder if he just isn't the best fit here.

    We need to a potent pg whether draft or trade. In the draft wee need either Josh Selby or Kemba Walker to the team both can break down defenses,shoot, set up teamates and effectively ISO.  Then we need a center i say we offer a wes matthews type contract to kendrick perkins. Then the team is set as the team is set up to revolve around central scorers with 3 potent scorers surrounded by shooters/slashers/penetrators we should be able to operate appropriately.

    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...

    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...
