Technically it wasn't in the Confucius portion of the show - but in the last five minutes Rice was asked to name the five guys that the Blazers are most likely to acquire before the trade deadline. He actually gave six.
He had previously stated that both Caron Butler and David Lee would be great fits with Portland, but didn't think that Portland would be able to acquire them for a reasonable price. He did, however end up putting Lee on the list as a hedge. I welcome your comments on who would be the best fit for the Blazers, and how they might acquire them but the poll question is who do you think is most likely to be a Blazer in March?
Of the following players named by Mike Rice, who is most likely to be a Blazer by March '09? (Age, Salary total for 08-09, # years on contract remaining)
