I was listing to the Draftexpress's Podcast and of course the Blazers came up... But I haven't heard of the rumors that they were talking about before. Two Portland trades were mentioned, one to Boston and Atlanta, here is the rundown.
Boston: Paul Pierce isn't getting younger and the East is wide open almost every year. If Paul Pierce wasn't trilled in getting Oden or Durant, what is Yi Jianlian going do for him...
So Zack to Boston for Theo and number 5 pick. Not bad for someone who some people want to dump for Brevin Knight.
Atlanta... Now here is where it gets interesting... Atlanta is on the hotseat, they don't need a lot of more risk, they need something that would make the future a lot brighter in the short run... so here it goes...
LMA (take a deep breath) and Jack for Josh Smith and the number 3 pick.
According to the draft guy talking he has heard from "A few different people" about this trade. We would keep Zack, and be set at 4 positions (if we take Oden) and have 2 blue chips (Conely and Sergio) battling for the point guard spot.
What are your thoughts?
