    Just an idea and wanted to throw it out there







    Celtics get: Gerald Wallace, Mo Williams, Jamal Crawford, Brian Cook



    Blazers get: Rajon Rondo, Jermaine O'neal, Mickael Pietrus



    Clippers get: Ray Allen, Kurt Thomas







    Works well for all teams in trade machine

    Portland needs a fresh start. We need to keep only 4 players on our current roster. N Batum, L. Aldridge, E. Williams, and G Wallace. From there we need to do everything we can to get an elite PG. 

    I would like to see us go after R Rondo, his hustle, defense, penetration and passing would be perfect for us to try and build around. 

    Ideally we could bundle Felton, Oden, and Smith plus 2 2nd round picks for Rondo and Pietrus. 
    Then we can trade Crawford for picks or some young pieces like Isiah Thomas and JJ Hickson. 

    That would leave us with a core of 
    PG Rondo 11 Mil 
    SG Batum ~8 Mil
    SF Wallace ~12 Mil
    PF Aldridge 13.5 Mil

    With
    G/F E. Willams 1.44 Mil
    PG I. Thomas .75 Mil
    PF JJ Hickson 3.2 Mil

    Leaving us still 10 Mil under the cap. We would need a C or a good rebounding PF to help LA in the middle. Ryan Anderson would be a great signing for the Blazers. I am not sure how much he would cost to sign as a FA so if we could trade for him it would be much better. 

    We could send G Wallace and L Babbit to Orlando for R Anderson and Hedo Turkoglu

    As much as I love crash he might be to expensive to resign or might want to play elsewhere. Anderson is a good rebounder and is shooting 42% from 3pt range. He is also a good defender. Meaning he would fit perfectly with Rondo and the new Blazers. Turkoglu would need to be taken off of Orlando's books for them to consider giving up Anderson so we would just need to hope he gave us something. 

    Our new lineup would be

    PG Rondo
    SG Batum
    SF Turkoglu
    PF Aldridge
    PF Anderson

    With Bench 
    E Williams
    I Thomas
    JJ Hickson

    We would also have around 4 Mil left under cap plus a mid and low level exception provided we traded Matthews as well. 

    Matthews could go to Chicago for Hamilton and Taj Gibson 
    Then we could either keep Rip or trade him for a Draft pick in the off season

    Leaving the Roster now
    PG Rondo 11 Mil
    SG Batum ~8 Mil
    SF Turkoglu 11.8 Mil
    PF Aldridge 13.5 Mil
    PF Anderson ~8 Mil

    Bench
    PG I Thomas .75 Mil
    G/SF E Williams 1.44 Mil
    PF JJ Hickson ~3.5 Mil
    F T Gibson 2.15 Mil
    C K Thomas 1.3 Mil

    Which would put us just over the cap at 61.44 Mil meaning we would likely need to let Hickson walk unless Batum or Anderson signed for less than about 8 mil per which does not seem likely. 

    Even without Hickson we would still have a nice bench plus a great starting 5. This team would easily be an improvement over the current team. We would have tons of shooters for Rondo to pass to. He could run Pick and Roll with LA or drive and dish to Anderson, Turkoglu, or Batum. What do you think of my overhaul?

    To me it looks like the organization is anticipating a lottery pick, and looking to have as much cap space as possible to make big moves during the off season either by picking up free agents or through the draft.  There are NO credible sources saying PA is selling the Blazers.  

    For the 1000100101th time, Wallace IS NOT unhappy in Portland.  He was unhappy to be traded, but he moved his family out here and has said he wants to retire a Blazer.  He will stay if given the chance.  The way his season is going, I don't think he's going to ask for a ton of money to stay either.  Batum isn't as stellar as everybody on these boards thinks he is, but he has done well enough to earn a nice contract and stay on the island.  We shouldn't be moving forward looking at him as a 2 however.  He needs to get back into the rotation in the front court.  The only other guys off the table are Wes and LMA.  I would also protect EWill at this point. 

    So the obvious move is to get a PG as everybody has said, but we are not going to get that without dealing 1 of the 4 guys mentioned above (Nic, GW, LMA, WM).  There is also a problem at Center, which also won't get resolved by packaging guys like Crawford, Camby, with GW or Nico etc etc.  It's just not going to happen.

    So it seems to me that the best move is to stay far far away from old men, bad contracts, and role players that aren't going to have an instant and long lasting impact on the Blazers W/L ratio.   The Blazers need to ride this out and keep their options open in what is going to be a pretty deep draft.

    Blazers Open To Trading Wallace via SLAM-
    "The Blazers balked a bit at moving Wallace at the start of the season, but they seem more open to it now. Nicolas Batum is their long-term answer at the small forward position, and they aren’t really competing for a title.”

    Trail Blazers Going After Rondo- Hoopshype via ESPN
    I know the Celtics are saying Rondo isn't going anywhere. But there are two problems with that. (1) It doesn't jibe with what a number of NBA GMs are saying based on conversations they've had with Celtics president Danny Ainge. (2) Ainge isn't stupid. He doesn't want to trade Rondo, but Rondo is the best chip he has to play right now. If Ainge waits and does nothing, the Celtics will be a middling lottery team without much hope next season -- in the same spot where Ainge inherited them a few years ago. He doesn't want to go back there. If he can get two pieces back for Rondo, I think he'll do it. Atlanta, Portland and Indiana are interesting destinations if they are willing to pay.
    I do wonder what the price tag is for Rondo. Rajon and LaMarcus would be a SWEET duo to have moving onward into the upcoming season. Obviously Batum would be wanted from Boston's standpoint, but what else?

    Ken Berger: The Trail Blazers Are One Of The Most 'Active' Teams At The Deadline-
    The Trail Blazers have been among the most active teams, seeking to move Jamal Crawford and acquire a big man -- either in the same or separate deals. The asking price for Crawford, however, includes a first-round pick in addition to Luke Ridnour (Timberwolves) or Eric Bledsoe (Clippers). Depending on what point guard the Blazers can bring back in a deal, they'd also be in a position to put Raymond Felton out of his misery. Felton's up-tempo style and Nate McMillan's deliberate offense clearly are not fitting together. "They've got to make major changes," one executive said.
    I like to hear that we are seeking out picks. These next few drafts are definitely something to write home about.

    More From Berger-
    Steve Nash is said to be "pretty content" with staying with the Suns, but that's more due to his personality and "not wanting to be the bad guy" than his belief that he can finish his career on a winning note there, a person connected to the point guard said. "He'd like to go and win," the person said, "but he's not prepared to play the Carmelo [Anthony] card." It is believed that the Suns would respectfully try to honor a trade request if Nash made one, but it's not his style to ask out and he feels tremendous loyalty toward the organization.  
    I wouldn't get my hopes up for Nash. In my opinion, it's not worth it for a 25 game rental.

    Crawford An Option For Chicago via Sam Smith of Bulls.com-
    Jamal Crawford: Still another former Bull whom the Bulls did look at as well before he signed with Portland. But things have not gone well there and he likely can be had now. Although he’s having a poor season shooting 40 percent overall, he is a big shot maker and can handle the ball and make plays. I don’t see what the Bulls have the Trailblazers would want. After all, they’re not a team that rebuilds with draft picks. Could you talk them into Watson, Jimmy Butler and a No. 1? Perhaps, assuming you’d give that much up for a short rental. I think Portland ends up doing better if they trade Crawford

    If we can get a #1 pick for Crawford you almost have to take it. Portland will need to get some good pieces in return or start to stockpile picks. If we are going to rebuild then trading Camby, Wallace, Crawford and whoever else for multiple picks would help. We are not likely to get an impact player in the 20's so multiple picks would allow us to trade up. Anthony Davis would be a great fit for our organization but he is likely to go number 1, making me wonder how much it would take to get him.

    From John Hollinger's Chat today on ESPN.com-
     The Blazers will move pretty much anybody except Aldridge and Batum, and they might even move Batum if the right Canadian point guard came along. So yes, expect conversations involving Wallace, Felton, Crawford, Camby and Matthews.

    i disagree espcialy right now batum is blocking shots and scoring and i would never trade him for nash that just silly nash is 36 years old batum is 23 you'd be trading 7 year with batum for half a year with nash no way you do that and the only reason i say half a year if he gets traded i dont see him playing another year

    From Blazersedge-
     League source: Reported Blazers / Pacers talks for Jamal Crawford are "legitimate." Portland asking for 2012 first & A.J. Price.
    Pacers balking at including pick. "The first team to give Portland a first round pick for Crawford will have him," source said. 
    Again, glad to see we are pushing for those 1st round picks. This draft is going to be DEEEEEP!

    I would do the Crawford for Price Plus Pick (3P) if I'm on either team. Jamal doesn't seem to have enough of a future here anyways, unlike it started out. I've been of the thought of keeping an eye on A.J. Price, just some kinda feeling about the guy. And who doesn't want a first-rounder in this upcoming draft? However, would Price just be another piece of another trade? The 25 year-old from UConn has a good upside for the amount of playing time the Pacers have dealt him.

    Current rumor is Boston is asking for the this trade http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine plus at least our 2015 first round pick and a second in this years draft. 

    In case the link does not work that is Batum, Wallace and Felton for Rondo and Allen

    That would require 43.5 Mil next season for just those 3 players alone. Avg salary for a scrub or young player is 1.5 mil meaning if we had those 3 plus 9 players making an average of 1.5 we would only be under the cap by 2 mil. Those three players and the spare parts we could afford is not enough to win a title. Let Gasol and his 19 mil contract go somewhere else.

    Where is that Boston rumor cmeese47? I would like to see that... Also I would like to either go with the Chicago or Indiana trade. I agree with DHawes that this could be like the '03 trade..it will be deep.Getting Price and a first round draft pick for Crawford will benefit in the long run and the Chicago for Watson, Butler, and a first would be good.I don't like the idea of trading within the division either. I say either go big with a star, or trade for bench guys and first rounders. Draft will be good this year I can't wait and can't wait to watch these guys in March Madness

    Portland does that deal in a heartbeat, not sure what Boston would be thinking though....

    Rondo/Williams/Matthews/Aldridge/Camby is a fantastic starting five with Thomas, Rhino, Nolan, Crawford, Przybilla off the bench.

    Rondo's contract runs through 2014/15. He would be a Blazer for a while and a duo or Aldridge and Rondo would be great building blocks for a bright future.

    One concern is Rondo's attitude.  We all know he can be a punk, and rumor has it that is why Rondo was on the trading block.  My gut tells me to go after Rondo, but my mind is telling me Boston WON'T trade him.  In the end, I think Portland will be looking elsewhere for a point guard.

    During ESPN's 5-on-5 Roundtable, they asked whether the Trail Blazers should Buy or Sell. Four of the five stated we should we sellers at the deadline. Here's some of what they said:
     James Herbert - Hardwoord Paroxsym: Sell. The team is a mess and in need of a shakeup. Raymond Felton has to go. We already know Jamal Crawford is on the block. If it's me, I'm looking into trading Marcus Camby and Gerald Wallace, too. LaMarcus Aldridge is 26 and locked up until 2015; they have time to reload.
     Andrew Lynch - Hardwood Paroxsym: Sell. One caveat; the Blazers absolutely should feel out the market for Nash. Other than that, Portland has desired commodities in Nicolas Batum (practically untouchable unless Rajon Rondo is available), Gerald Wallace, Marcus Camby's expiring contract and Jamal Crawford -- in descending quality. This is another team that should at least answer the phone if someone calls.
     Brian Windhorst - ESPN.com: It could be argued that Blazers owner Paul Allen never sells, but this team is going the wrong direction. The Blazers don't need cap room -- their attempts to rebuild through free agency in recent years have yielded mixed results -- as much as they need young players and picks. They have underachieving veterans near the end of their contracts -- read: tradable -- and a few young players they can still build around. Seems like a perfect formula for a retrofit, which is certainly understandable now that they know Brandon Roy and Greg Oden are not part of the future.
     Danny Nowell - Magic Basketball: Buy. I'm not convinced the Blazers are a serious threat in the playoffs, but they seem to feel they have a shot at acquiring a game-changing player. To which I say, in a pretty wide-open Western Conference: Go for it.

    John Hollinger believes the Trail Blazers should make this 3-team deal with Minnesota and Cleveland-
    Ramon Sessions and Daniel Gibson to Portland; Jamal Crawford and Greg Oden to Minnesota; Luke Ridnour, Anthony Tolliver and $3 million to Cleveland

    There's been a lot of talk about trading Crawford for Ridnour, and that makes a lot of sense, but I like this one a little better. Sessions is a better player with a shorter contract, and his ability to play the pick-and-roll would help a Blazers offense that's had some troubles under Raymond Felton's leadership.
    Personally, I'll pass. I've never been high on Sessions and Gibson is another shooting guard. Can he shoot? Yes. But he's really as tall as Damon Stoudamire and would be a liability on the defensive end of the floor.

    A lot of good quotes from Chad Buchanan in Joe Freeman's story titled, Trail Blazers will be active as NBA trade deadline approaches, but won't sacrifice long-term health for temporary fix
     “If there is a move that helps our team now, we’ll make it,” Blazers interim GM Chad Buchanan said. “But we’re not going to sacrifice anything long term for the short term. We’re realistic about where we’re at right now. We’re going to have to fight to get into the playoffs. We’ve dug ourselves a little hole. But we don’t want to make a decision right now that will impact us negatively long term just to salvage something short term.”
     “We put this team together this year to have flexibility this summer,” Buchanan said. “The ultimate goal is to be a team who consistently, year-in and year-out, makes deep runs into the playoffs. By no means do we think this team is going to contend for a championship this year. I’d love it if we got hot and did that. Anything can happen and we don’t want to shut the door on this season. But we also want to be prudent and set ourselves up long term for success.”
     “I wouldn’t say we’re in a rebuilding mode,” Buchanan said. “We have some pieces that can be good pieces for us. When you talk about rebounding, you talk about starting over. I don’t think that’s where we want to be. We’re retooling things a little bit. We realize we’re not a championship team as is. We took a step back losing Brandon (Roy) and losing Greg (Oden to injuries). But we’re not in a rebuilding mode. It’s a retooling mode.

    If Rondo is TRULY available and we get to keep Aldridge in the deal, then do WHATEVER it takes to get it done. A Rondo/Elliot/Free Agent/Aldridge/Przybilla starting five would be sick and I can't think of many better duos than that of Rondo and LA. Think of how easy Andre made it for LA last year? Now multiply that by 5 or 10, because Rajon always looks to get his teammates involved before scoring and his defense is top-notch. Diva or not, bring Rajon to Rip City!

    More from Ken Berger-
     The Celtics, who according to one rival team had, in fact, been soliciting offers for Rajon Rondo in recent weeks, have disengaged on that front, sources said. One executive compared the Celtics' posture with Rondo to the Pistons' with Rodney Stuckey, whom Detroit no longer is actively shopping.
     Nothing has heated up yet for the Trail Blazers, who have three players attracting interest on the trade market: Jamal Crawford, Raymond Felton and Gerald Wallace. One league source said the Blazers have made it clear they're accepting offers for Wallace.

    Anyone who watched the Portland vs Boston game, look out how much effort Rondo is putting in when his team is up by 38 points. Winning or losing he is always hustling and has his head in the game, not the gutter like the blazers do.

    WE NEED TO TRADE FELTON!!! He can't do anything and he is out of shape.

    what a shocker! i've seen the same comment at least a hundred times. why state the obvious?
    truth is nobody is going to want felton when he's playing like a wet bag of crap. the blazers would
    have to package him up with crawford, camby, or wallace for anybody to take him.
    and to the people who are calling rondo a punk or a diva...wouldn't you rather have a team with
    an attitude than one content with losing? i'd welcome attitude or even aggression if it meant
    winning games.

    How about this?



    Crawford for Beasley



    Felton, Mathews, LA, for McGee, Blatche, Wall



    I think the team slows down when they use LA as the first option.  Last year Roy was the player that the plays went through.  I think we need a proven center (McGee) and a pg for the future (Wall).  Thoughts?

    Talks between Blazers and Twolves for Crawford Ridnour swap may begin to break off now that Rubio is out for the season with a torn ACL

    I'm sure those talks are entirely dead now. Minnesota can't afford to trade any guard now. Maybe a draft pick tho?

    Instead of saying who we need to trade, I'm going with the pieces we should definitely keep:

    LaMarcus, Nic, Elliot, Joel

    I don't think we should trade EVERYONE else, but I certainly think anyone else can be included in a deal.

    By the way, do half the people on here consider the outcomes of some of these trades? Or is it solely based on hype?

    I kind of sounds like this to me: "Let's trade our entire roster for Jeremy Lin, clone him, and have him play every position!"

    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...
