    Ronnie is tied with Leonard for the only guys to produce 12 pts off the bench. I don't understand him not getting some time behind Lillard in favor of Nolan. What's the logic? I wonder if Ronnie, Sasha and another bench player are part of an upcoming deal? Varejao stated today that he wants out of Cleveland and he leads the league in rebounding right now and scores. Wonder what Olshey has cooking? Problem with Varejao is he's 33 although he's playing the best ball of his career this season.

    There's only a few things I can think of that would make the most sense, cause I don't believe this is a decision that is going unnoted(no minutes in the past week), and also notice Babbit & Barton are getting a good amount of time on the court as well. I think that's a direct result of Neil Olshey.

    1. Neil wants Stotts to get them more time to show them off to other teams for possible trade offers. And although I love him and don't want him to go, I think Barton goes into that discussion as well. Not trying to get into a whole lot of trade "what-ifs" but it's a possibility that other teams have some interest in our youth.

    2. Neil & the president are trying to take advantage of the Stampede, the first year venture for the Blazer franchise, and want to get a good look at the young guys before the next couple of weeks and see who clicks with the current team or who could use some more playing time at the D-League.

    I still don't see why he hasn't logged any minutes at all in the last 5 games.. I think he's showed he's a viable back-up PG (better than Nolan) and we hopefully should be seeing him assume that role in the next week(s) or so.

    I think it has more to do with his jacked ankle.  I think the good that comes from this is that we deal with the reality that Nolan Smith is not a servicable back up PG.

    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...
