    Via Ken Berger-
     Exploratory trade talks the Trail Blazers are involved in on multiple fronts hinge on what decision is made with regard to Brandon Roy's short- and long-term health. Team officials already have engaged in internal discussions about trading older players such as Marcus Camby, Andre Miller and Joel Przybilla. Such an avenue would seem to be more likely if it's decided that Roy will miss significantly more than the six games he just sat out due to a bone-on-bone condition in both knees. One scenario involved Miller going to the Bobcats, but those talks took place prior to Charlotte's recent coaching change. The Bobcats now are entering a new evaluation period under coach Paul Silas and have no current interest in straight salary-dump trades. "That's the furthest thing from the truth," one source said. "We want to do basketball deals if we can." 

    * A person with knowledge of Camby's thinking confirmed a report that the 14-year veteran would indeed contemplate retirement if traded to a rebuilding team. Camby's overwhelming preference is to stay in Portland, and there is "no close second," the person said. But if a trade to a contending team in a city his family would be willing to relocate to were presented, Camby would be open to the idea. The Knicks, who from time to time have expressed interest in bringing Camby back to New York, are one team that would meet the 36-year-old's approval. 

    Kind of from the "No Duh" category, but interesting to talk about regardless. I guess the bigger question is, "When does the team decide on Roy?" or "What specific criteria does Roy have to meet in order to play?"

    Only one, his play cannot be detrimental to the teams progress. If it becomes blatantly apparent that Roy cant keep up on fastbreaks, or consistently gets beat by his man on D,[true on both counts] than Brandon ends up being a liability on the floor. I love the boy, he's a flat out gamer,but he's not at 100%. He nor any other player is bigger than the game.
    In regards to Camby,he's a keeper. He's a cerebral pivot and thats rare. His timing to the ball is third in ranking.The first being Bill Russell, and second, Dennis Rodman.
    I am a fan of our new roster playing with and for eachother.

    I really don't think we should trade Camby by any means. I know he's old, but we could use him the rest of his career.

    Just saw a Tweet (15 min prior to me posting this) by Jay Allen that says a report on CBSSports that states both Roy and the team are thinking about shutting down Roy for rest of the year.

    I am a fan of Lillard, Batum, Lopez, LA and T Rob taking it to other teams!

    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...
