Love Canales, but his issue is that he has an A+ resume for being an assistant coach, but not much that convinces me that he's the kind of guy that could drive us to the WCF in a few years).
My gut tells me they hire Stotts. Not crazy about his track record (mostly losing records...
His game is going to become a cross between Chris Bosh and Arvydas Sabonis. He's got the passing craftiness and shot blocking potential of Sabonis with the footwork and shooting potential of Bosh. If he realizes that potential, which I'm confident he will based on his work ethic and ath...
1. Blazers get Toney Douglas back from NY in sign-and-trade
2. Blazers package Batum and Douglas for Derrick Williams, Ridnour, and an *unprotected* 1st round pick in the next 2 years.
Douglas is house money, but could be an acceptable replacement for...
Assuming we sign Batum (safe assumption) and Shawne Williams picks up his player option, and all Blazers currently under contract stay healthy (need planets to align here) we need:
A) Veteran (starting or mentoring) PG
B) Back-up PF
C) Starting C
D) Back-up C

@wayne.lamb, I think we could get a lot higher with that trade if it weren't for Crawford's option. I think teams around the league will be gun-shy about dealing for him because he could potentially opt out the next day. That being s...
At this point, Houston is almost certainly going to do whatever it takes to keep Dragic. They are on the verge of shipping Lowry to Toronto (http://espn.go.com/blog/truehoop/post/_/id/46492/rockets-set-sights-on-moving-up-in-draft) or elsewhere, which almost certainly means that Calderon isn'...
Maybe I'm an optimist, but I think 7 is too low, Ricky. Look at our competition in the west:
1. Thunder--Young team, will be better than last year, biggest competition we'll see (potential title winners).
2. Lakers--Didn't get CP3 or Dwight, let Odom go, team disheartened a...
Rumor has it Portland may have found enough cash through various exceptions to sign J-Cross (if he picks us) AND Carl Landry.
That smells like a Western Conference Championship team to me.
A Camby trade close to the deadline makes perfect sense for us. Hopefully (all fingers/toes crossed) Oden may be game-ready by then. If he's healthy, Camby becomes largely obsolete, and we could send him to a team needing veteran defense or cap room and get a younger player at whatever positi...
