Juicy Blazers Courtside Trade W/ Poll Question

Listening to Blazer's Courtside tonight, Barrett and Rice mentioned what I thought would be a really beneficial trade for both of the teams involved to do.  I don't know if this was just an idea, a rumor, or what.  Here is what it was:

Blazers send New Jersey:

Jarrett Jack, Channing Frye, Travis Outlaw, Raef Lafrentz, 13th Pick

New Jersey sends Portland:

Richard Jefferson, 10th Pick

The rationale here is that Jefferson would fill our needs at Small Forward, and then we could use the #10 pick to obtain D.J. Augustin, improving our Point Guard position..

Our starting lineup will then be Jefferson, Aldridge, Oden, Roy, & Augustin.  Our backups would be Webster, some PF (Maybe McBob will be much improved this year), Przybilla, Rudy, & Blake.

If Augustine isn't available at 10, perhaps we can get Alexander, keep Blake in the starting lineup, and sign Petteri Koppenen to fill Jarrett Jack's roster spot.

I personally would rather include Webster than Outlaw.  James Jones is an adequate reserve SF. Otherwise, we could draft someone who could be a back-up forward or guard with a second round pick, or package our second round picks for a late first round pick to get one.  I should mention that Jefferson does have 3 more years on his current deal, for quite a chunk of money.  However, LaFrentz's contract is a big help to us in this situation, and we have Paul Allen as an owner. 

What are your thoughts? I say, get it done KP.
