THE END OF THE DRAFT

Portland cuts Keith Van Horn

 

Portland's lineup for 08-09

C- Greg Oden, Joel Pryzbilla, Alexis Ajinca (maybe stay in Euroleague for 1 more year)

PF- LaMarcus Aldridge, Channing Frye, DJ White

SF- Martell Webster, Donte Green

SG- Brandon Roy, Rudy Fernandez

PG- Devin Harris, Peterri Koponen, Sergio Rodriguez

 

I love this roster for Portland! We got a great starting five and a great bench! I'm pretty sure Koponen will be impressive in summer league and will make the team, so that gives lee-way to trade away Blake and Jack.

DJ White gives Portland some physicality at the 4 spot and a lot of hustle.

Ajinca can stay in Europe and develop or Portland can stash in away in the DLeague.

btw, McRoberts will be assigned to the Idaho Stampede
