    I have pondered this long and hard. I suggest we send LA and both of our first round picks for Howard. That would leave us plenty of cap space to add pieces around him, and I really don't think Orlando is going to get a better offer than that.

    I was on the Howard bandwagon for awhile but after that fiasco last year I do not want anything really to do with him. Now that being said if he wants to come here and sign a hefty contract than lets do it. but he has one year left and we would just rent him for a year because we gave up both draft picks AND LA so he really has no team here outside what Batum? about the same scenario as Orlando if not worse IMO

    We can't even hire a GM, let alone go get Dwight Howard.

    Obviously he would need to sign a contract extension for us to trade for him. We would have even more cap than before with no draft picks. We would still have Batum, Hickson, Matthews, Williams, Freeland, Klaver, Smith, and about 14mil in cap space to add free agents. Do you think that we still couldn't get top tier FA's with Howard on our team. The only downside to this is I want to see SVG as our coach and that wouldn't happen with Howard here lol.

    You would have to be crazy to do a trade like that! Dwight is a dominant big but he won't bring you a championship without having another star next to him. So we get rid of an top PF and two high draft picks for a cry baby? Heck no.

    yeah. no thanks. keep LA. keep the picks. draft barnes, beal, or drummond because one of them is almost guaranteed to be left at 6. then take marshal or lillard at 11 (maybe lamb if we don't take beal). we then have probably three all star caliber players instead of trading all our assets for one guy who probably wouldn't even want to come to portland.

    Or we draft Drummond and Marshall and they bust and we have another 40 win season. Its always a gamble in the draft.

    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...
