    I know a lot of people think a player drafted after 30 doesn't bare much thought, but.... Patty Mills is a fantastic player. Put national bias aside (yes I am an Aussie) and the fact I have known Patty since he was playing under 12s in Canberra. This kid can flat out ball. He burnt Chris Paul repeatedly in Beijing and scored 20 on the Redeem team. He can be a spark of energy off the bench and his play making has been under rated by scouts that watched him on a St Marys squad where he was required to shoot more than pass. I hope Nate et al give him a chance to play.

    I agree completely about Patty Mills and I am also Australian but he is awesome!
    He is also very quick and agile. His on ball defence is exceptional and his lateral movement will help off the bench he is a great pick up at 50. GO BLAZERS

    He will get a chance to play his way in during summer league. Pooh Jeter isn't a great PG and is really there to just fill a roster spot. Mills will get a chance before Jeter will. I think you need to brace yourselves for disappointment though. If the Blazers continue to go after big name Free Agents, Mills will probably be playing in Australia this coming season for salary reasons.

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    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...
