    Hear me out. Jared Jeffries and Nolan Smith have not exceeded or even met expectations as of late. I'd be willing to let go of either one, if the opportunity presented itself to sign Chris. He's a great player defensively and works hard on the glass. Lord knows we need a little help defensively. WIth J.J. still at center and Leonard still developing, Chris would make a solid backup center. We might also be able to sign him for the veteran minimum and save a little cap space. 

    Just a thought. What do you all think?

    First and foremost...welcome to the boards!


    If not for the fact that Andersen has more baggage than does the SW Airline baggage claim at PDX at Christmas time...yes.  Reality being what it is, the risks of having the Birdman in the lockerroom far outweight the rewards he'd provide in uniform.   For all of his obvious defensive abilities, Andersen just doesn't fit the culture here in Portland.  Just my opinion.

    since you mentioned free agent´s... i would say that there arent much that could be a upgrade do the team.

    Maybe we could give a 10 day contract, to see if there are really anyone worth the chance...

    Maybe, Jordan Farmar, as a backup PG/SG and Hassan Whiteside(7´0) backup Center, last night he showed good skils on the D- League Showcase, in 20 min, he made 19p(8-11), 17rb and 5 blk.

    I have been talking about Whiteside for a while now .....i think he would be a great low risk high reward 

    I actually dont think Chris Anderson would be that bad of a idea....i mean he might bring a toughness that we dont really have. Nice to have a guy come in to rebound and block shots....

    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...
