    We saw them play. Not much of a drop-off either, granted this was against the 2nd and 3rd units for San Antonio so naturally the bottom of Portland's bench is more talented.

    And speaking on the Armon Johnson point:

    1. Camby
    2. Aldridge
    3. Wallace
    4. Batum
    5. Crawford
    6. Felton
    7. Matthews
    8. Thomas
    9. C. Smith
    10. N. Smith
    11. Williams
    12. Babbitt
    13. C. Johnson
    IL. A. Johnson
    IL. Oden

    You can only have 13 active players on the roster this season. In a normal, non-lockout situation, you can only have 12 active players, which means in a normal season, we probably wouldn't have seen Chris Johnson either (or Luke depending on who they decided to have inactive).

    Chris Johnson over Babbitt, without a doubt. Sooo much more potential, not to mention a much better fill to the problem at 4 or 5.

    I agree 247, unless we add Przybilla like the rumors are saying. If that happens, I don't think CJ will see any time barring injury.

    Still would rather keep CJ than AJ, no matter what role CJ is playing. With Pryz coming back, our ranks that can play Center will look something like Camby, Pryz, Thomas, and Chris Johnson... but at the guard positions, whether you want Armon to play as pg or sg (ready for neither), he's stuck considerably far behind Felton, Smith, Crawford, Mathews, and even Williams. On top of that, Batum has shown potential at the 2guard.

    Sorry Armon, but when it comes down to your potential usefulness to this Blazers team, you're right down there with Greg.

    I say move Armon & Babbitt. That Nevada connection was a gamble that didnt pay-off. Since Batum is now in the starting line-up, we need a defensive wing to spell Wallace.

    @ D_pickett...With Joel only needing to pass his physical Sunday to join the squad now, I think Camby's days as a Blazer may be numbered, solidifying Johnson's spot on the roster.

    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...
