    Best case in my opinion is that Hedo goes somewhere else, we use that cash and acquire Ariza and Hinrich to fill in our small forward hole and point guard needs.
    Start the year with Roy, L-Train, Hinrich, Ariza and Pryzbilla starting, Rudy coming off the bench for that spark and heavy minutes. Hedo seems to me to be too old and on the downturn. Great pick and roll player but he is past his peak and would require a lot of cash to bring him in. Like pippen he would help for a season or two but then would be an expensive player with limited potential. We need tighter defense which Ariza can provide, he is also a young player fitting with the long term winning mold the blazers have been forming.  Get Hinrich, Ariza, Roy, Aldridge and Oden on a starting lineup three or four years from now and watch the rings come rolling in for another five.
    I am a fan of having faith in the future of Oden, and the skills of Roy

    Id take Hedo over Ariza anyday hands down and im not sure where this "SF hole" is because we already have 3. Add Hedo OR Ariza and we have 4.. so im not sure where youre getting that from exactly. No blazer fan in they're right mind would want Ariza. Case closed. (and not just because of the Rudy foul)

    Ariza has gone to Houston so there's nothing to discuss about.

    I don't want Ariza in here after what he has done to Rudy. Anyone who can risk someone else with so much hate is without a doubt 100% cancer. May be he can work on his issues and become something like human in time but not yet. I would much rather go after Artest, at least he's a better player without much difference in mentality.
    I am a fan of the Rip City, where amazing will happen in 2012

    To close this discussion completely, Ariza is signing with Houston and Artest is signing with the Lakers. Bottom line, done deal. Nothing more to talk about here. But I agree, Ariza is a richard.
    I am a fan of Good basketball, great fans and Rip City!

    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...
