    Via Oregon Live-
    The Dallas Mavericks' championship victory Sunday night triggered the start of a deadline for the Blazers to tender an $8.8 million qualifying offer to the soon-to-be free agent center. The Blazers, who did not extend an offer Monday, have until June 30 to do so.
     "I'm sure they're going to hold off doing anything until the end," said Mike Conley, Oden's agent.

    If the Blazers tender Oden, there are several ways they can retain him. They can sit back and gauge what the free agent market will be for the talented but injury-plagued 7-foot center and match any offer Oden receives. If interest is minimal, they can simply sign him to the one-year $8.8 million deal.
    They can also offer and sign Oden to a multiyear contract, gambling that the player who has played in just 82 games and endured three knee surgeries during his four-year career is destined for a long and healthy return. Oden, it seems, is open to a long-term return to Portland.

    "That would be fantastic," Conley said of a multiyear deal. "We would definitely be excited about that."

    Sign the big man to a multi year deal. He will proove his worth. (Put some knee pads on Greg) Next go after Dwight Howard as your starter and use Greg as the back up or rotate him to pf at times with Wallace and L-Train. Portland whould now asume the twin towers nickname with attitude!!! Lastly bring in M. Ellis for the outside/inside threat:)

    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...
