    So much for that option. Still there's Rony Turiaf or maybe bring back the Rhino? Got a roster spot left.

    Warriors made some killer moves. I thought the Iggy move was overrated but Oneal, Tony Douglas, and Maruesse Speights make up for Jack and Landry. Adding Iggy and still have depth AND getting rid of Jefferson and Biendrins contract GSW GM deserves big credit. Thats a offsesason most teams wish for.

    They stepped it up in GS. That's going to be a scary team.

    For the last roster spot I would like to see Cole Aldrich or Brendan Wright in a BLazer Uniform

    Had to give up 2 firsts and Rush to do it, but the move was worth it. The team was a contender last year and if healthy looks equally as dangerous this year.  I loved Jack last year but Iggy is an upgrade. O'neal and Speights should be able to fill in for Landry. 


    I love David Lee but he is a one way player and if the Warriors can move him they would be wise to do so. A combo of Barnes and Greene playing PF with Speights filling in makes them a lot scarier. The key is Bogut, who if healthy will make them a very solid defensive unit especially when paired with Iguodala and Barnes.

    I am a fan of Getting Defensive Players This Summer.

    Rarely get to read Bogut and healthy in the same sentence! Same with Curry. Those two guys stay healthy and the Warriors are going to make some noise. They are said to be considering Baron Davis on the bench as he's considering coming back to the game.

    If we're trying to fill one more spot in Portland, I mentioned this on another thread (purely as theoretical, haven't looked at numbers to see if it's possible), but what about Marcus Camby? He's unhappy with being traded to Toronto, he loves it here, and he'd probably be able to teach Leonard and Lopez some defensive tech in the same kinda mentor-role that Watson will have with Lillard and McCollum.

    Again, I wouldn't want to see either Watson or Camby on the floor for any real amount of time because it probably means we're fighting an injury, but as for being veteran mentors that would come cheap, I feel like Marcus Camby would have some value.

     

    Thoughts?

    Right? But just like ONeal, I feel like somehow Camby doesn't seem to be on Portland's radar at the moment...

     

    Wish we could get one of the journalists to cover this, instead of just re-hashing all the same news in short paragraphs and calling it their new "articles". Seriously, that's been the biggest disappointment of the offseason for yours truly; Portland sports-journalists are  LACKING in effort, as much as Brook Lopez in the vid I just posted on these forums. I feel like they all just pass the same headlines between each other. If their job is just to look at this site or nba.com and then write a 1-2 paragraph summary, why can't one of us do that? Pretty sure that's what these forums are for, anyway... go out and scoop a story! Find an original angle on one of the existing stories at least, cuz obviously fans on here are finding things to talk about.

    Sorry, had to vent that but it doesn't feel like it's worth making it's own post.

     

    Journalists, you're (kinda) doing it wrong!

    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...
