    Thanks for your time with the Blazers.  Thanks for being such a great role player when you were asked.  BEst of luck in the Front Office.

    Jared Jeffries, an 11-year NBA veteran, is transitioning out of his playing career and has accepted a front-office job with the Denver Nuggets, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

    He will begin his post-playing career centered on a scouting role, sources said.

    Jeffries, 31, has a strong history with new Nuggets general manager Tim Connelly, who worked in the Washington front office when Jeffries played with the Wizards from 2002-06.

    Jeffries played his final season for the Portland Trail Blazers, appearing in 38 games. In his 11 years, Jeffries had stops with the Wizards, New York (twice), Houston and Portland.

    Jeffries joins a revamped front office that includes assistant general manager Arturas Karnishovas and director of basketball operations Ben Tenzer. Washington drafted Jeffries with the 11th overall pick in the 2002 NBA draft out of Indiana University.

    I am a fan of WES, the heart and soul of the Blazers.

    Great opportunity for Jeffries. Reunites him with JJ Hickson as well. The game (as a player) has passed him by and this is a smart move for him. I wish him the best as well, just not in the Northwest! Beat Denver!

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    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...
