    Dorell Write officially signs his contract.   Great pick up for the back up SF.  Not afraid to shoot.  Decent defender.  Huge improvement!!!

    Paul Allen has confirmed on twitter that we've officially signed Crabbe and TRob as well...

     

    ...but no word yet on Lopez being confirmed as signing with the Blazers? Do you think this is just the next thing in line that we'll hear about soon, or is this maybe a sign that there's another move coming?

     

    Sorry just had to speculate!

    After the first practice, Crabbe apparently shot lights out and was a decent defender at 6'6. Love to see these guys sweep summer league! I think TRob is a sleeper. Hopefully our new defensive coordinator gets these guys playing defense in their sleep! When LaMarcus gets here, TRob will get a serious lesson in his position. It's interesting to me that Lopez hasn't signed yet...hmmmm?

    LaMarcus was on twitter yesterday talkin about puttin in work in the gym. I'm sure the young guns have plenty to adjust to after their recent arrivals in Portland, but like River said it's exciting to think of what wisdom he can pass on and how fast that will help their development, especially Robinson's.

     

    Ooooo, gettin chills.

    Good to see Robin hired Hakeem offseason to improve his game. I hear he paid 100K for the workout!

    I'm kinda irritated that the moratorium goes past the date on which the summer league roster is set. Wouldn't it be fantastic if we were allowed to add T-Rob to the summer league team? Now we don't get a look at him until training camp and preseason.

    @ D_pickett, in Casey's "Trade For Thomas Robinson Completed" blog it says:

     

     "According to Chris Haynes of CSNNW, Robinson will play for Portland's summer league team, with their first game being this Saturday in Las Vegas."

     

    I know, I was worried 2 b4 I saw this ;)

    Could not agree more!

     

    And I just heard that it is OFFICIAL.  Blazer have a starting center!  And a full roster!

    If Harris is waived we could still pick up Dalembert, Blair, Elton Brand, Brendan Wright, Turiaf, or another 3rd big in case of injury. I hope we use the Stampede to better advantage this season with the DNP roster spots.

    I'm also glad to see Meyers is not conceeding the starting spot automatically. He's got some swagger about it coming into the season. Good to hear Stotts say all the sophmores have show marked improvement.

    At the very least, Meyers will have someone to bang with finally.

    @ riverman, I've been a big fan of bringing in Brandan Wright for a while; IF we can get him... Blazers will have so much (even > than now) versatility AND will b a nightmare to go up against (again, even more v. currently ;)  I ALSO like Elton Brand out o' the group u list (he's my choice after Wright :)  I'm starting a campaign Wright now... "let's bring the Wright Bros. (they're not related of course BUT they ARE both brothas ;) together so that we can take flight!"

    Maybe Meyers can take the starting role, but I actually think the division of minutes will be something like 26 and 22 or 28 and 20 anyway, so I don't think it's quite as important who starts as it is that they both produce in meaningful minutes.


    Hope the comment about T-Rob joining summer league is true, but he wasn't at practice so we can't be sure.


    I didn't expect any surprises with things going official, but it's nice to finally see some of the comments from Lopez and D. Wright working out at the P.F.

    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...
