    Yeah it wouldn't because we get a dream come true haha, I just don't understand how anyone on the blazer's side wouldn't do this. Rumor that LA wants out anyway so if thats true I wouldn't feel bad that he were gone eventhough I love LA. And if that rumor is true I don't see how we don't trade him, so weird earlier in the year I wouldn't have traded him for anything.

    @ sug81, exactly, "Rumor that La wants out..." rumors r not fact; when rumors make the transition to fact... THEN I will buy it but until then... a "rumor" is meaningless.  Show me proof LMA wants out & THEN I'll say get him the hell out of here; LMA is my fav. player BUT I don't want ANY player in Portland that doesn't want to b here.

    I can completely respect that, and I love LA too, and if he wants to be here then I say keep him for sure, but I guess we'll see tomorrow... should be exciting

    Assuming we would only sign free agent to complete the roster...

    What do you think about using the 13M we have in...

    PG Jamal Tinsley / Chris Duhon

    SF: Ronnie Brewer / Matt Barnes

    PF: Elton Brand / Lamar Odom

    C: Sam Dalembert / Chris Kaman

     

    I know all off us want a better center then this, but it would be an average signing at least, and the other 3 would be very reliable backups, all experienced and not very expensive.

    Jamal Tinsley is old as dirt and is basically a streetballer, Duhon is useless, Ronnie Brewer would be a great add, Matt Barnes is a dirty player, and would not join our team anyway Elton Brand would be great, Odom not so much. I like Dalembert, hate Kaman.

    I just read that Andre Kirilenko is going to opt out of his contract with the wolves for next season. He would be a perfect addition to our young roster because he is a really good defender and a willing passer. He would be a great backup off the bench because he can defend multiple positions. This would give us more options in the rotation. 

    Claver could then be moved on along with Freeland. Maybe a deal could be made with the Suns or possibly Hawks who are in need of some warm bodies to fill out their roster. They need a backup PF and SF and we have both. Not sure what we would want in return for Claver and Freeland though.

    Yeah, and Carl Landry said he would be open to coming to Portland, loves our fans and our team. But, he left the Dubs because he wants more money, and since we need a centre more than a backup PF, he is probably too expensive.

    Just some toughts...

    We will surely try to get a Center, to satisfy Aldridge, and there most of the cap space will be gone. Lets Say 10M or even more...

    After that we will still need backups  PG, SF and PF, i think we will get players around the price we paid Ronnie Price and Sacha Pavlovic this year. So i Ask you, who could we get with that kind of money (2/3M + Room Exception)? Shaun Livingston, Ronnie Brewer and Jermaine O´Neal ??? Maybe?

    Nuno, whats with it with you and bench players Lol ? :) 


    I think Olshey would sign Jammal Tinsley or Earl Watson as insurance for the PG spot. I would like Ronnie Brewer to back up Nic Batum but I don't know Olshey's idea of him. Jermaine O'Neal could be a great option with teh room exception or hopefully the Vet Minimum.

    I thought Landry only wanted more years not more money.  He might still be available at 4mil for 3years.  I also saw  that we might go after Bynum.  What is he making now and what happened to him last year?  Does anyone have a list of what the salaries are for the centers in the league?  I would be interested in Asik, Pekovic, Bynum, Dalembert, and Gortat.  What could we get from O'neil (Jermaine).  He would be good as a mentor for our young centers but is he still good as a player.

    According to a source with knowledge of the situation, there is going to be no shortage of interest in free agent center Andrew Bynum once teams are allowed to contact free agents at midnight eastern. The source specifically mentioned the Portland Trail Blazers and Cleveland Cavaliers as two teams expected to reach out to Bynum along with all of the clubs with cap space pursuing center Dwight Howard. Howard is set to meet with the Atlanta Hawks, Dallas Mavericks, Los Angeles Lakers, Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets. Of those five, the Hawks, Mavericks and Rockets have the necessary space under the cap to make a max, or near max, offer without needing to do a sign-and-trade.

    Nuno speaks the Gospel. Im not going to even attempt to sugarcoat it, our bench sucked. One of the benefits of having a young squad is that they have no idea that they arent that good.....yet. You need that naivete'. Stotts did a fantastic job with what he had. We were in a lot of games that were our bench better , we would have got more wins.

    Personally, i wouldnt mind going after Bynum. Sometimes all a guy needs is a change of scenery. He'd get more than enough touches playing the pivot for us. And, he'd have to be out of his mind not to want to play with Dame,Nic,Wes and Aldridge.

    Bynum is going to get overpaid. Probably more than 10+ a year. No way I spend most of our cap to get him. Glad Chris Haynes. When/If he gets healthy I'll be upset we didn't get him though LOL

    Bynum wont be getting overpaid because the whole NBA world ,fans included knows that he is coming off of an injury. He certainly cant be expecting a max contract because no one has seen him on the floor in a whole year.You have to agree though that he and LaMarcus would be a feared front court tandem. On paper the squad looks awesome.

    Lillard/McCollum/FA

    Matthews/Barton/Crabbe

    Batum/Claver/?

    Aldridge/Freeland/?

    Bynum/Leonard/Withey

    Yeah but when Bynum gets hurt you then have Leonard starting. Also, teams always pay for good centers. Roy Hibbert and McGee both got 40 million+ deals. Bynnum before injury was a TOP 2 Center in the league. Some team will give him a GRIP of $$$ Because when healthy the man is a MONSTER

    what about carl landry, he said that he loves to come to portland. reported by chris haynes on csnnw.com. i think that he can take 14 mins. away from both aldridge and batum. he is like hickson but faster and cooler plus he does defense in my mind. if we bring o'neal over to teach defense to leonard, if leonard learned by the end of the first month, we be looking at a potential 35 game winning streak

    Yup! Landry seems like a quality dude, maybe he wants a long term deal here. A 4 year 16-18 million deal would be cool in my opinion. Then we would have to trade for a center OR probably just sign Dalembert or some other mediocre center :(

    The Blazers, who now have roughly $9 million in salary cap space and another $2.6 million via a "room exception," are still expected to be players on the free agent market.

    Pekovic is a restricted FA. Olshey said the Blazers didnt want to be left in the cold, remember? They'll avoid a duel unless its cant-lose .
