    On ESPN, an expert said that he wouldn't be surprised if the Blazers made a trade with the Bucks or Bobcats for their draft pick to take Burks.  On NBADraft.net, Burks is listed as a PG/SG and described as...

    shows some point guard abilities ... An advanced ball-handler who can get to the rim in traffic using either hand...Excels in the open court, where he uses long strides and his athletic ability to convert on fast break opportunities ...Shows good court vision and a willingness to create for others...He's long and athletic enough to be an effective defender at the next level... All in all, he is a very versatile guard that could be a potential PGOTF for Portland who can score and create for others. What do you think?

    I think he could be the PGOTF for Portland as he can score and create for others.  What do you think?

    He's more Brandon Roy than PGOTF. I think he's strictly a 2 guard who can handle the ball whenever need be.

    I agree he is more of a 2 rather than a 1.  Information also suggests Marshon Brooks won the 1 on 1 he had with Burks in one of the pre draft workouts.

    He's a Shooting Guard, not a Point Guard. But like Brandon Roy, Tyreke Evans, or even Clyde Drexler or Michael Jordan (I'm not saying he will be as good as Clyde or Michael), he has the court vision to average 4-6 assist per game.

    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...
