Tyrus Thomas a Blazer?


consider this?

 

If the Blazers decide to pursue a trade that would benefit us now and in the future, I cast my vote for Tyrus Thomas. Young and a desire to defend the paint...

He gives us a solid back up presence for LA and also can play the 5 spot  with Juwan Howard. After reading the post on trying to trade for Eddy Curry and Jordan hill, this idea of snagging Thomas from the bulls came to mind.

I actually like the Blazers a little smaller. They seem to move better and attack the basket more often. All too often do the Blazers rely on the big guys to clog the lane and do everyone's dirty work for them. Playing a bit smaller forces them to play together more on defense.

Chicago trades Thomas to the Blazers for Outlaw. Throw somefillers to match salaries if needed...

But at the end of the day i like what the Blazers have and would not like to part with any of them;)

Starters

Roy, Webster, Howard, Miller, Aldridge

Reserves

Bayless, Fernandez, Thomas, Pendergraph, Cunningham

When Nicholas Batum returns, then we bring him off the bench moving Dante to 3rd string and allow Batum time to acclimate. When fully capable, he can replace Webster in the starting line up if he is not doing a good job by then.

NOTE: Blake is on the block in my eyes and should be shopped for the Big Baby or Robin Lopez
