    Looking at all the expiring contracts this summer, I honestly think the blazers should trade them and get something in return rather than just letting them leave for nothing this summer.

    This is bold, but I think it is possible to get Rondo without giving up Batum. Keep in mind that Boston is looking to have a lot of money and youth going into the summer. I say, work a deal with Boston where Rondo comes to Portland. Give them matthews, crawford, felton, wallace, e.will, n.smith, babbitt, camby, you name it! Just as long as the Blazers have a solid core of Rondo, Batum, and Aldridge to build around. Honestly, I can't think of a more ideal core to build around that is realistic at this point.

    The starting lineup for the remainder of this season would look something like:

    Rondo, E.Will? (Boston SG?), Batum, Aldridge, Pryzbilla. This group might not get deep in the playoffs this season, but with a summer where portland has $$$$$$, this would be a good start to set up a deep playoff team next year. And although its a far stretch, having Rondo does make Portland look like a more attractive place to centers (hint, hint) and the Blazers will have all the money in the world to give him.

    Truly saying this is not a bad idea. I like it. Let's see what we can get. Playing with current roster does make less and less sense. Names don't play in our team this year. 
    It looks more and more clear that Wallace does not want to stay in Portland for another year, Matthews has poor season and Felton is just obvious mistake. Clear these options, maybe it will e enough for Rondo?

    Wallace, Batum, Camby, Aldridge, and Mathews are strong as it is, but truely we do need a more sufficient PG

    If you were a season Celtic ticket holder, would you renew if Ainge pulled the trigger on a deal like this?  I wouldn't.  You can't replace a Rondo (18p, 20a, and 17 rebs last night) without something of real value.

    Yeah that would be an awesome trade. Boston would want either Batum or Aldridge in order to give up Rondo. I highly doubt Rondo would even want to come to Portland anyway.

    yeah i been saying this for awhile but it seems nobody can get it through their heads that boston isnt trading rondo, especially for spare parts.

    Boston has been so up and down. Just got destroyed by Philly tonight. I think the more Boston looses, the better the chances of getting rondo are. Keep an eye on them.

    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...
