I quickly excited when I heard about all of the rumors of Portland trying to acquire Barbosa from Phoenix. I thought that this trade would really improve the Blazers because of the versatility Barbosa offers. A lot of the speculated trades included our 13th pick, but now that the draft is over, the likelihood of this trade has fallen. Or maybe Bayless has more value then the 13th pick? Phoenix is looking for a back-up for Nash, and Bayless seems to fit the part. He is a guard that can push the ball and create for himself and his teammates. We Blazer fans have become so used to trades during the draft that we have forgotten about the option to trade after the draft. Has this trade fallen through or can it still happen?
