    Via Oregon Live-
     How did the first practice with Gerald Wallace go?

    "Pretty good. He's too athletic. He can run the floor. One time he blocked Patty's shot, he came from the wing side, Patty (Mills) came from the corner … he jumped from, I don't know where he jumped from, but it was like 'Oooh, OK.' That's what we need."
     Has Nate McMillan talked to you guys about who's going to start and who will come off the bench?

    "Not yet. I doesn't matter who's gonna start or not. All that matters is we want to win. We want to win. We want to be in the playoffs and get a good spot in the playoffs, maybe get home court advantage -- and we have a chance to get it. So we're going to play these last 23 games 100 percent … it doesn't matter about who starts, who finishes the game, playing time, doesn't matter. We just want to win."

    It's really good to hear Batum is wants to learn fro mWallace. it looks like it'll be a smooth transition bringing Wallace in from Charlotte!

    Hopefully G-Dub can teach him how to drive to the basket hard, crash the boards from the weak side, and up his defense.  Good learning experience coming at the SF position

    Getting deeper though we are still lacking in the center and don't have a solid backup PG...

    True...every team needs something.

    Maybe we can get Arron brooks somehow over the summer? I'm pretty sure the pg situation will be resolved by the summer it's so many pgs in the league.

    It's harder to find a decent big man then a decent pg.

    Interesting that Nic had one of, if not his best performance of the season tonight, following some speculation as to when Wallace would be inserted into the starting line-up.  Fear motivates.

    GW will have his chance tomorrow night, with both Rudy and Roy out.  I have no doubts he will not disappoint.

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

    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...
