    This guy is gonna be really good. Hopefully he doesnt get buried on the bench and gets no p.t. He is long..athletic.. can jump out of the gym..can shoot with range..and left handed is always a bonus..

    unfortunately stacked behind some skilled guys. however, as far as backup point guard goes, i believe this is the biggest race in portland this pre-season. three guys that i can see could take the spot (smith johnson and williams). With the short preseason, id say johnson has the leg up at least for the early season since he played on the team last year.

    EW showed off some siiiick athleticism at the fanfest, and like Austin said it's a lil unfortunate for Elliot cuz we've got a number of qualified pg's. But I gotta disagree with what you said about it being a 3 horse race though dude. Armon Johnson may have a year more of NBA experience then Smith or Williams, but Smith was a BEAST in NCAA and Willliams, like we're all starting to see, has got the drive to do big things. What has Armon Johnson done in his year of experience? He gave away lots of turnovers, couldn't make decisions when on the floor, and eventually he kinda lost his backup-PG spot to our favorite Aussie, Patty Mills.
    Smith is the obvious backup PG right now, and I hope Elliot can do somethin to earn some minutes somewhere (i believe he's one of our guys that is pretty flexible and can play different positions), but really, unless Armon makes some serious improvements to his game and QUICK, he's really not much use to the Blazers right now.

    If we're talking a 2 playing point, I'd rather see Crawford handling and E-Will playing off the ball. He's perfect for the 2-guard position but a little to flashy and scorer-minded to play point. I really like what Nolan Smith does at point guard. And they play off each other well.

    And Johnson's poise is suspect. He's fourth at best,if he doesnt end up in the D-League.
    I am a fan of our new roster playing with and for eachother.

    AJ is all talk. He has all the confidence in the world until he's playing NBA basketball. Also, it doesn't look like he worked on his right hand AT ALL in the off season. He still goes left 100% of he time and can't drive against a defender. I don't think he has a future in the league. Nolan, however, is gonna be a solid point consistently from what I can tell.

    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...
