Chris Johnson no extention..... What Cho?

By mbmurr1 Posted in: Blazers
Leave Marcus Camby on the injured reserve for 2 weeks so he is truly healthy and sign Chris, get rid of Sean Marks because he sucks so much ass it is ridiculous, send him to the d-league and keep Chris here in Portland where he belongs. Make some trades achieve space for 1 player and sign Chris now. If nothing else sign Chris in the off season to a 3 year + deal, If he is available that is. If Cho is smart he will find a way to get this talent on our team long term. Chris needs polishing but he is not raw he has a lot of potential which he has demonstrated in the limited minutes he has received. Once again I say find a way Cho !!!!!!!!!!!!  Chris will kick ass for us..... Mare my words "find a way to sign him before he is lost to us and signs with the New York Knicks or a west coast rival".   GO BLAZERS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 


  1. I like Chris Johnson, but it apparently would have been a costly deal. 1. Marks already has a year-long contract. 2. An additional short-term exception would have to be granted by the NBA. 3. According to regs, at most CJ could only have been signed for a second 10-day contract.

  2. By signing CJ to another 10 day would make Marcus sit for those 10 days regardless of him being healthy or not.

  3. Have you been following Chris in the D-League? What are you basing your 3+ year deal demand on? His two minutes of playing time with us?

  4. Mike Rice explained this earlier in the day from a financial standpoint. Johnson would earn another $25,000 for 10 more days. since portland is in the luxery tax, that's a total of $50,000 out of pocket for Paul Allen. he has consider how important it is to play that much to a guy who might play six minutes a game or so. it was decided that it was not.

  5. the point i read most why chris was not signed to another ten day contract was marcus would have to sit mandatory for 14 days as he would be in that player injury exception. from what I am hearing camby is close to coming back...i love chris too

  6. Chris Johnson was picked up by Boston and I actually saw him on the floor playing for the Celtics the other night! Good for him!

  9. After the play offs, this looks like a much smarter move.

    Kudos to Rich Cho for keeping CJ around.
