    I am not completely sold on this idea, but it answers questions for all three teams and sends us answers to seemingly all of our biggest questions. I hate the SF swap, but the rest seems solid for portland.

    Couldn't support a trade that gives up a guy like Crash for a 32 year old Turkoglu, one of THE WORST floppers in the league.  Not to mention his defense is not in Crash's zip code and he scores 3pts fewer per game.  Although it does answer questions at C and PG for sure.

    May be academic as I don't think the Magic would ever go for this.  They would be the Blazers minus LMA and Batum.....  They are going to want more for a future hall of fame center than Camby, Wallace, and a bench warming PG in Felton.

    i cant see the trade but if its something like turk and howard for crash camby and felton then what they would be getting for the future is a bunch of expired contracts which means cap space to sign some big FA's next year. that said i hate turk but i'd like to see howard and LA together, it would be like the twin towers x 1000

    I agree here, i am not a fan of hedo, but i feel like someone would have to heat his contract in order for howard to move. He isnt terrible and could be our second or third off the bench behind batum.

    Lopez is enticing (potentially, but not sold on him being solid) and D.Will is good (but overrated because of celebrity), and everyboday hates Hedo. Maybe I'm thinking of the wrong case, but wasn't Turkoglu the guy who almost came here before and his wife reportedly said no because of the type of people in Portland? Blazers fans would never accept him here. Plus, there would be riots if we got rid of Camby and Wallace and this is all we got for it.

    So it would be an extremely unpopular move in relation to the (real)fanbase, and it doesn't have enough guaranteed improvement to be worth that risk.

    And Hedo is an automatic veto. His kind of player is not wanted in Portland.

    Its a yes from every team but Orlando. Why make that deal? I don't think we can give up our pick and just one from New Jersey isn't going to be enticing enough. If I'm the Magic, I'd rather chance it and try to re-sign him then trading for Felton, Wallace and Camby.

    LA and Dwight can never ever coexist in an offense system unless LA became more dirk like with dribble moves. To players that require to post up as their main line of attack can never work

    ever heard of david robinson and tim duncan? and the trade had d12 going to new jersey and the blazers getting deron williams. i suspect new jersey would rather get dwight in free agency so they dont lose their point guard so the trade doesnt really make sense. and we dont want hedo.

    Tim and Robinson both had more dynamic  moves, Howard will never have a dribble move like robinson or a passing ability like either one did, or a jump shot for that matter, howard can only post every single time

    silly blazer fans. just because a trade works financially doesnt make it legit. equal value plays a HUGE factor in the thought process. 90% of fan ideas for trades are redipulous (yes i spelt that right) and would be laughed out of any gms office. d-will to portland and all we give up is felton and camby? why would orlando do that? you guys are straight comedy.

    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...
