Newsday: Sergio "coveted..."(Edited)

According to Alan Hahn at Newsday, Sergio Rodriguez is "coveted by several teams."

This is the snippet;

"Showcase opportunity

Sergio Rodriguez has sought the opportunity to show he can be effective playing regular minutes - be it in Portland or, preferably, elsewhere. He'll have his chance; starting point guard Steve Blake was lost for at least a week with a grade-one shoulder separation.

Rodriguez, whose European-based agent went public with a trade demand in November, has been coveted by several NBA teams, including the Knicks. But Trail Blazers general manager Kevin Pritchard has set a high price on the backup guard, who is averaging only 14.3 minutes per game this season. Perhaps Pritchard's patience will pay off. A strong performance in Blake's absence will make Rodriguez a hot commodity before the Feb. 19 trade deadline.

Rodriguez, Raymond Felton of the Bobcats and Mike Conley Jr. of the Grizzlies are on the block and are likely to be moved by the deadline."

 

I, for one, love Sergio's game.  I just don't think that he'll be here long-term, unless there is a change in coaches (and I don't see that happening anytime soon.)

I think he would have greater value to up-tempo type teams, (Golden St., New York, Memphis and New Orleans) but others might have interest in a change of pace guard.

If KP has set a high price, what is it?  What kind of player is equal value?

Update: Sorry, I've been calling Sergio, "the Surge" since his rookie year.  Styled after his change-of-pace game.  Sorry again for my spelling slip.
