    That's why we have a D league and should use it. Since he's not played in 3 seasons it would bode well for the Stampede and Elliot to let him lead the squad this upcoming season. If he's looking healthy and lighting it up there, we could swap Crabbe or even Barton for him. Tha'ts why it's called a "development league" The Stampede need talent, they didn't do well last year. I hope Elliot makes this choice and proves he can stay on a court.

    RIVERMAAAAANNNNNN! YOU'RE BACK! And yeah I agree with you too an extent. I am anxious to see what E Will can actually do, but we don't need another 2 guard. We are arguably 4 deep there. Wes, CJ, Barton, Crabbe.

    I am a fan of Raymond Felton. Haha, seriously though I'm a fan of Batum's Lobs and JJ's Slams.

    Would Oden WANT to come back to PDX though? Especially when he's drawing interest from Miami.

    Oden and Bynum should both be only signed to 1 year contracts at this point.

    Oden and Bynum should only be signed to wheelchair basketball leagues at this point.


    I think E-Will's best chance at coming back is the D-League. He hasn't shown enough to the country for people to know what he can do. I think a healthy Elliot is a 20+ minute player in the NBA, but nobody knows that except Portland. If we don't sign him, the D-League is his only option besides a complete career change.

    I think the NBA should have a built in system for any player with multiple surgeries and more than one year on an injured list to spend a few months in the D league before they could sign with an NBA team. Oden, Roy, Elliot, Bynum, etc...sort of a system where they must qualify to earn an NBA roster spot. It's been a money pit and risky system for too long. There are just too many healthy players that could take those jobs and roster spots have too many guys in crutches and ties on the sidelines. This uses the D league to prove you can stay on a court for half an hour a game.

    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...
