DO WE REALLY NEED ANY OF THE PLAYERS THAT ARE AVAILABLE THROUGH FREE AGENCY OR TRADES?

    What are the Blazers doing? Why are they so desperate to acquire any ol' player on the market? 4 yr 32mil contract to Paul Millsap? Bayless or Outlaw for Hinrich? How much will these moves really improve the team? Give B Roy and LA their extensions first then go from there!! Maybe Andre Miller that's as far as I'd go! I think we'd be fine without making a move though. We are going to be that much better next year! Maybe pick up on a big name free agent then. For now, focus on Brandon and Lamarcus!!!!! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!

    Make sure you have all your facts before you start calling shots. The trade was Outlaw and Blake with money and Tyrus Thomas going to Utah. Then Boozer would go to Chicago and Heinrich would come to Portland. It was Chicago that wanted Bayless instead of Blake and said that they would still be willing to take Blake, but would only send Kurt Thomas to Utah if they got Blake instead of Bayless. As far as Milsap goes, he's insurance with Utah. Eiher they accept the deal for Kurt Thomas, or we outbid for Milsap who happens to be their prized free agent. It's business. Would Milsap be a good back up to LA? You bet your sweet patoot! So it's a win/win deal for Portland. They will sign Roy and Aldrige, if they don't it is not because of KP or Paul Allen, it is because the Evil Empire is deciding to get their hands dirty on this one, someone put a mind meld on those damn Vulcans and make 'em sign off on the Roy and Aldrige deals what ever they end up being.

    Why would you give up Blake and Outlaw for Heinrich? Steve is as good as Kirk any day! PLAIN STUPID! And almost 10 mil a year for a mid level backup to LA? Equally as retarded!!

    I would rather keep Blake to be honest, not a huge fan of Hinrich but i guess if we got him i wouldnt complain. As far as Millsap goes i like him and i think he would be a great back up.. however the minutes still bother me. I dont know how it would all work out, i know we could have some different rotations with different setups but even so im not sure he could get more than 20mins tops. I cant say because i dont know but he wouldnt have the numbers he did last year with only 20 or so mins. Also dont know if he would be happy being limited.. we would have to see how it worked out if it did happen. No question we would have one hell of a frontcourt though: Oden/Joel LA/Millsap. thats some depth when the guy off the bench can come in and you dont drop off. Not gonna get my hopes up that will happen though it would be cool

    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...
