A Humble Backup Power Forward Suggestion

We all know the weaknesses of the team at the backup power forward spot.  We can't get any offense out of it.  We can't get any defense out of it.  We can't get any rebounding.  It's just abysmal.  There's nothing there.  It's been pretty much agreed upon that the most important thing to gain in this position is someone who is a good defender and is a strong rebounder.

How about a guy that has a defensive rebounding percentage of over 20% during the last few years?

How about a guy who has the reputation of being one of the premier post defenders in the game?

How about a guy with years and years of experience in big games and a championship ring?

How about a guy who is familiar with Portland and likes the city?

How about a former All-Star?

Well, this player's contract is up, and he'll be a free agent this summer.  The only issue is that he earned over 13 million last year and may expect a similar pay day (wrongly).  Maybe with a little smooth talking though, he could be had.

Oh wait, I forgot to introduce this player; although I think some of you may know who I am talking about already:

Couldn't Sheed's return be the perfect thing for us?  He would fit into our system instantly, and brings a competitive fire that no one aside from Joel Przybilla can rival.  Say it with me: we want Sheed back.
