    Given that he has played in the NBA finals, is 28-9 years old, practised daily against LeBron James, I'm wondering why nobody has even mentioned his name as a Blazer rotation player until Stotts did today. Are Babbit, Morrison, Claver, Barton, Smith actually better than this guy? He didn't crack the rotation in Boston last season so it's hard to gauge, but Boston is paying his 3 mil salary this year and can he contribute? Both Price and Jeffries only recently entered the conversation and they've surprised a lot of people. What about Sasha?

    I think with Elliot going down it open the door for him to get in the rotation if we didn't have the goal of making the playoffs I would of see him just battling the young guys in practice and getting them experience and playing spot minutes. I actually see him backing up Wesley at the two and maybe some minutes at the three that way like with Leonard, Barton can get eased in the rotation I watch Sasha and he bring toughness, hustle, he a decent defender and he can hit the outside shot and I really like this about him he's not afraid. While some may think he was just a throw in when we made the trade for him but, I think he going to surprise lot of people.

    One thing I forgot to add is that he a pretty good ball handler and passer as well and don't be surprised if you see him get some chase down blocks as well.

    Oh he's gonna get some minutes for sure, especially with Elliot Williams injured for the season.

    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...
