    Indiana have indicated that they are open to trading Danny Granger....could something be there? They have been interested in Jamal too. Maybe a Granger for Wallace & Crawford? Could be effective for both Portland and Indiana

    This would be good, but it wouldn't clear up the issue at PG and Center.  And Indiana is definitely holding onto Roy Hibbert.  I'm not sure that trading for other players would be the best option here.  Getting some good draft pics for this years draft could definitely help us out, as well as making cap space for free agency this summer.  For the draft, I have my eyes on John Henson out of UNC.  At the beginning of the year, he was not the center of attention, but now he has made a name for himself.  He will be a great backup to LaMarcus.  Kendall Marshall is also from UNC, and is a great play maker, who looks to pass first.  He could be groomed behind whatever PG we will have then, or he could be given a chance to prove himself.  But for these rookies to be effective, Coach McMillan has to give them some playing time.  Luke Babbitt has potential, but he doesn't have enough in game experience, and he'll never get any if Coach McMillan doesn't play him.  During free agency, Spencer Hawes (76ers) is an unrestricted free agent.  He is very reliable, and is not at the end of his years like Camby and Thomas.  But, things are going good over there in Philly, and we would have to draw him over here.  Chris Kaman is another good option.  A lot of teams want him, but the promise of a starting job could bring him here. 

    Sorry to go on so long, but those are my thoughts.  Let me know what you think!

    How about a trade between Minnesota, Boston and us.
    Blazers get: Rajon Rondo, Anthony Randolph, Jermaine O'neal's contract, Brad Miller's contract
    T'Wolves get: Jamal Crawford, Ray Allen, Gerald Wallace
    Celtics get: Raymond Felton, Michael Beasley, Derrick Williams, Wesley Johnson

    Josh Smith is out there.  Why not offer a package for him including GW?  GW is very inconsistant.  When he's on, he's a joy.  When he's not, he's a liability.  And there aren't enough nights in the week when he's on.  I don't think GW's heart is in it for the Blazer's and I think he's gone as soon as he get's the chance.  Smith would have a fresh start with us and we could keep Batum at 2.

    So, when did you decide to sell out our team?  Basketball used to be fun and the team was a family, everything else came second to the game.  It's just sad to watch it become a "Big Business" and everyone jump on board the wagon.  It's even more sad watch and hear what people say about players when they have a good night and then go cold another wanting to trade them.  If you keep trading players, you'll have the same issues you have now.  Just play basketball, fight for every ball each quarter, and love the game, then you'll see wins.

    Keep the team.

    Everybody keep this in mind: NO TEAM will trade their A-grade players for some combinations of B~C players unless they desperately want out. Quit your 'Rondo for this guy and this guy is a win-win trade' bullcrap. Let me put it this way. Would you ever want to trade Aldridge for Paul Millsap and CJ Watson unless Aldridge wants to leave Portland? No. If a team trades their best player, its either to rebuild or to upgrade. Give me some legitimate trade rumors please.

    By the way, do half the people on here consider the outcomes of some of these trades? Or is it solely based on hype?

    I kind of sounds like this to me: "Let's trade our entire roster for Jeremy Lin, clone him, and have him play every position!"

    Lin can't play 5 positions, but Lamar Odom can definitely play point-forward, 2 guard, SF, PF AND Center.... Great thinking though hahaha

    Precisely.  There is no trade that makes any sense that doesn't involve LMA or Batum.  I'm tired of shuffling the deck and coming up with the same cards.  Blazers need to make a big move now, or make no moves and wait till the off season.

    From Sam Amick-
     Portland is expected to be active this week, but don't expect any deals involving fourth-year small forward Nicolas Batum. Batum will be a restricted free agent this summer, and a source with knowledge of the team's thinking said the Blazers remain determined to keep him. It's not certain, though, as the reported distance between the two sides during failed extension negotiations in January will have to be bridged at some point.

    David Aldridge reports the Trail Blazers & Bobcats are talking trade-
     It's obvious that Crawford and Nate McMillan aren't working. Nobody really thought they would, but the lack of money available elsewhere for Crawford made a two-year deal with Portland for $10 million the only contract worth signing. Now, though, the Blazers are looking to cut their losses. Initially, a deal with Minnesota, which coveted Crawford initially, seemed like a no-brainer, with the Blazers re-patriating Luke Ridnour to Oregon. But Ricky Rubio's season-ending ACL tear Friday has made that potential deal much less likely, with the Wolves needing to hold onto their veteran point guard. So, now, according to a source, there's a chance Crawford winds up with the Bobcats in a potential deal for guard D.J. Augustin. Augustin has played just fine this season, but he's expendable now that Kemba Walker is there.
    Via Hoopshype, Augustin will be a restricted free agent in the summer so if the trade went down and it didn't work out, there's not long-term commitment needed to be made.

    On the year, DJ is averaging 12 points, 6.5 assists and 3 rebounds in 31 minutes per game. But, he is only shooting 38% from the field...definitely not what Rip City has been clammoring for from their point guard.

    More From Berger-
    The Trail Blazers and Clippers are discussing a deal that would send Jamal Crawford to the Clippers for Eric Bledsoe and Ryan Gomes, league sources told CBSSports.com. The talks have not advanced to the ownership level, but the two teams have exchanged proposals and were mulling over this idea on Monday. It's not clear whether the deal would be a precursor to a second trade for Portland involving disgruntled point guard Raymond Felton. Rival executives believe the Blazers are interested in exploring a swap of Felton to the Lakers for Steve Blake, with L.A. sending another piece to make the salaries match and compensate the Blazers for getting the better player and future cost savings in the deal. The Portland coaching staff and front office are comfortable with Blake, who could provide a calming presence as the team battles through numerous distractions. Coach Nate McMillan appears to be safe for the time being, according to people in contact with Blazers officials.

    Can somebody please tell me why Bledsoe is so coveted? He's barely played at all this year. What does he have to prove? What would he offer Portland? Potential to be molded into a starting PG for a contending team? Someone please help me because I'm confused with this decision and with Gomes involved, I think it's a very foolish trade.

    Yesss!!! Granger is a scoring machine! I've always liked his style of play and I truly believe he could thrive under Nate McMillan if he tries to improve his defense. Hes long, athletic, and quick enough to be effective. I also think from an Indiana perspective, Wallace is a good fit for that team as they are becoming quicker with a PG like d collision.
    I want this trade!!!
    Crawford and Wallace for Granger. Let's call up chad.

    He was a Top 20 pick last year and showed promise. But with Paul and Billups brought in over the summer along with Mo Williams already in place, playing time is hard to come by. He won't turn 23 until late October so he would be a young point guard who could come in as the starter and learn via trial and error.

    Here is the scouting report of him coming out of Kentucky via NBADraft-
    Strengths: Has a lightning quick first step that makes him almost impossible to stay in front of ... Makes his moves very decisively and changes direction abruptly without losing stride ... His speed with the rock, especially in the open court, is remarkable ... Has a powerful, chiseled frame for a guard that helps mask his height deficiency ... When he gets a full head of steam - look out. He's like a running back in the open field ... His upper body strength allows him to finish through punishing blows ... Uses his left hand very adroitly around the rim...Never loses sight of the hoop, even when contorting his body...Three point accuracy has been a pleasant surprise, knocking down 41% on nearly 4 attempts per game... (showed improvement late in the year) ... A solid passer (3 assists per), especially in transition where he can use his instincts rather than reading defenses ... His superb lateral quickness, foot speed and freakish wingspan make him a potential lock down defender ... Clutch.
    Read More>>>

    Sounds good to me. We need more wing players who can create their own shot by putting the ball on the floor and getting to the rim. I love that even at a young age, his body is already developed by NBA contact. And the potential to be a good defender is always a plus since Nic, Elliot, and Wesley are all already good defensive players.

    Weaknesses: Turnovers have been a problem at 3 per game ... Decision making has been questionable at times, as he tends to continually play on fast forward- this can be partially attributed to the chaotic style Kentucky plays ... Goes through phases where he has tunnel vision towards the basket, dribbling with his head down and not paying any attention to the defensive alignment ... Leaves his feet to pass on many occasions, which often results in an offensive foul or no place to pass and a turnover ...
    Read More>>>

    Where have we seen this before? Yes, he would be a work in progress. But so was Steve Nash. So was Russell Westbrook. We can't expect him to come in and play flawlessly. There will be bumps in the road. But, if he is allowed to play through them, I think he will flourish.

    And as a starter, he did well, even for a 20 year old rookie. In the 15 games he started in November, before the team added Mo Williams, Bledsoe averaged 10 points, on 49% shooting, 5.7 assists, and 4.1 rebounds.

    If we are looking for a relatively low risk-high reward young point guard for the future who won't cost an arm and a leg, there aren't many others out there who are more enticing than Bledsoe.

    Bledsoe is intriguing.  What I don't want to see however, is this franchise throwing it's proverbial soul away in dealing Felton to the Lakers for Blake.  Blake's pers this year rank him near the bottom at his position, yes, even worse than Felton and he is a complete defensive liability.  Nevermind the fact that we would have to abandon "Beat LA" in favor of "Help LA".  Felton and his expiring contract would undoubtedly be used in the offseason to land an elite PG via free agency (or trade) ...something Stumptown can't do

    I find it painfully ironic that this city is about ready to take a knife to Raymond Felton, but we are talking about getting a PG who we expect to be a work in progress and is bound to make all the same errors as Felton.

    THANK YOU! Steve Blake is awful, simply awful. He was terrible here in Portland and that was WITH Brandon Roy spoon-feeding him open corner threes. And his extra two years on his contract is just the icing on the cake. Did I mention that Felton is a much better point guard then Blakey? We need to quit trying to find "Nate guys" and just go after talent and make Nate coach to their style.

    Seeing Portland's interest in Eric Bledsoe. I know you've heard of the rumors of Bledsoe and Gomes for Crawford. However, this will be a mistake receiving Gomes when the Blazers waived him on draft day. Also, considering he has a 2 year contract worth 4 million and we do not need another small forward especially someone of Gomes caliber. This means we will have 4 million less to spend in free agency. Which is why I suggest trading Crawford for Bledsoe and Randy Foye. He's a great 3-point shooter to help out LaMarcus and most importantly has a 1 year contract, so if he doesn't work out we can just let him walk away as we will only have him for a few months. This also helpful with the uncertainty of Elliot Williams' health this season. Chad Buchanan please don't make a mistake in acquiring Gomes instead of Foye if you do trade for Bledsoe.

    Under no circumstances should we trade for Steve Blake. If he had 1 year left on his contract and they were offering a First Round pick then I would reconsider but with 3 years left on his deal Portland would be shooting themselves in the foot for nothing. 

    Bledsoe is an option because he is young and can develop into a starting caliber PG and also because he is affordable. I would ask for Foye only if we are trading GW or Batum (to another team) otherwise get Bledsoe, a draft pick and a 2 mil trade exception for Crawford.

    With the Clippers losing again tonight (to the C's), they have dropped out of home-court advantage contention in the West. They have struggled mightily since losing Billups and they should be desperate to get a player like Crawford. Chad knows this. This is also why this rumor surfaced. It's just the tip of the iceberg. I'm sure we don't take on extra salary unless we get a pick back. I believe our leverage with Jamal only increases as the deadline comes nearer.

    Why DJ Augustin? He really isn't that good people. I'd rather get a first round draft pick for Crawford for god sakes. Get somebody with potential In the future. Think about why Charlotte would do this. It's obvious isn't it? Kemba Walker, a rookie, is a better option that Augustin. Why would Portland get a PG that the worst team in the league doesn't even want? Get a first round pick or find another deal somewhere else.

    I also would start to wonder about getting Charlotte outcasts (Wallace wasn't but still never won there). Felton hasn't worked out and I don't think Coach Bickerstaff has really turned the offense around. Let's just stay away from Bobcat players for a while here.

    Why don't we get rid of Felton and Babbitt for Bledsoe and Foye, or Bledsoe and a 1st rounder. Or Foye and a first rounder. Or a first and a second round pick. Screw it, rebuild. Use some tenacity and think about the long run PDX! Come on Buchanan.

    I would say keep felton. I know he hasn't played well from the start but he seems to find his rythm and he has a lot more potential than the guys involved in the rumors. i think we also should nolan as backup. i am sure he would do a great job as backup pg. I think we should trade for draft picks or a good center maybe also for a forward in exchange for wallace as a backup i would like luke to get some minutes. i think we have some talented young players on our roster just give them some time instead of getting for example an additional young point guard who won't play much since nate doesn'T seem to like trying to give young players more time

    If you are saying don't make any stupid trades (Blake) I agree with you on that.  If you are suggesting that trading Wallace for another forward (who?) and giving Babbitt more minutes is going to fix the problems on this team, I disagree with you 1000%

    Are you kidding me Freddead Gerald Wallace is an elite defender and plays all out. Luke Babbit will never be that guy. The only Blazer on a rookie contract that is worth playing is Elliot Williams.

    Wallace is 29 so I just do buy the getting old argument. Babbit might be worth something but he needs to earn some playing time. I think Wallace is just sick of being the only one busting his ass every night. Get some consistent play and I bet we see consistent effort from GW.

    we are agreeing on the trades regarding felton and i don't think babbit is the solution to our problems but i think he could help us a little from the bench. i said maybe. so i don't necessarily want wallace to be traded but he has been on and of this season and from what i have heard it's not certain whether he wants to stay with the blazers

    Gerald Wallace wants to win and if the Blazers are not going to do so then he would love to find a team that will. I believe he wants to remain with the team but the inconsistency has to remind him of playing with the Bobcats.

    You are right that Wallace plays hard but look at what Kobe is still capable of or how long Iverson lasted and both of them have been beaten up more than Wallace

    Wallace plays full out, full out of control - how many point blank layups has he missed, and why can't he put it together on the road, and the threes he shoots are problematic. Yeah in my mind he is trade bait. You can't say he has made this team better because we are worse than last year. I'm selling

    i think he made us better last season but his impact is not big enough to turn the whole team arround and since the whole team struggled, he struggled as well and all he can do is fight through it and i think he is trying to do so

    Wallace is a game changer but he needs to start dunking on people and not attempting crazy lay ups. He also needs to leave the three points shots alone unless he is wide open.

    Chicago has interest in Pau Gasol, but Lakers don't just want what Chicago and give up. Both Chicago and LA have had interest in some of our players, maybe we emerge as the third team?



    Lakers get: Carlos Boozer, Raymond Felton, Taj Gibson

    Bulls get: Pau Gasol, Jamal Crawford, Josh McRoberts

    Blazers get: Ronnie Brewer, CJ Watson

    I'd like to see us go out and get a someone that can flat out shoot it from the outside. Someone like a Martin from Houston. Yeah I know his contract will hamper 2012, but he only has one year so if we wanted we still could be players in 2013 FA. Would Houston take Wallace for Martin? Moves Batum to 3 and Martin to the 2.

    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...
