Jason Quick was on primetime and had some juicy tidbits about what the blazers are trying to do. Isaac Ropp recapped what Quick said on his blog:
"Jason Quick, Oregonian:
Blazers in serious talks with 4 teams about trading out of the #13 pick
The four teams: Phoenix, NY Knicks, Toronto, New Jersey
Players targeted: Barbosa, Malik Rose or David Lee?, TJ Ford, Devin Harris
Offer on the table from one of the above or another East team
The deal involves the #13 and a Blazers reserve for an unnamed veteran
Potential exists for the Blazers to trade down targeting Brandon Rush @ #21
The players garnering the most interest: Frye, Webster & Outlaw
The players garnering very little interest: Rodriguez, Jack
Significant news: Nate has decided to play Travis Outlaw exclusively at SF
McMillan also committed to more Brandon Roy at PG
No word from James Jones on his player option"
There is a lot of good info in there. Quick also said that Paul Allen commented that the proposed trade was "intriguing". I wonder who it could be for???
Nate saying that Travis is going to be primarily a small forward is also sort of interesting. That must mean they plan on keeping Frye? How does that effect Jones and Martell?
On your mark.....
