    Via Draft Express-
     Hearing Portland and Orlando are talking about swapping Andre Miller and Jameer Nelson, with the #21 pick going to Orlando.

    :) 60/40 minimum
    Nelson running the point necessitates teams defend Portland differently and negates the quick double downs on LA.  Jameer also happens to be the same age as the already existing Blazer core.  He prefers to run, a style that suits Aldridge Wesley and Wallace, and has obviously been accustomed to feeding the ball down to a dominant low post presence (GO moving forward).  He also creates with the bounce, which, by itself sells me on the deal.

    Other than giving up some of our potential to land Faried, this deal is extremely attractive as it has Portland keeping their most valuable asset in Batum while addressing their need at that PG position.

    I'm iffy on this. Giving up miller and a pick for a 2nd tier pg is questionable to me... maybe more to this one
    I am a fan of winning.

    I agree, I am not sold on Nelson as a PG to help the Blazers and losing the chase to get a rookie to develop that can be better then Nelson
    I am a fan of great sports plays and the true players.

    I think we could do a lot better if we're trading Dre.  Maybe if they include Howard in the deal... :P  na jk.  But I'd like to see us actively looking for better point guards than Felton and Nelson.  Maybe knock on the Spurs door again?

    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...
