Hoopsworld with a somewhat unusual plan to fix the Blazers

12

I don't give that much on their rumors (there were deals reportedly done that really weren't). But while this article is pure speculation it's an interesting recap of the season and unusual point of view how to go forward: * Veteran help needed, but not necessarily in the form of a new brand-name PG starter. Instead bring in a veteran third player (type Lindsey Hunter, Anthony Johnson) and move Bayless to the backup spot. * Veteran PF that provides "post scoring in the second unit" to play alongside Joel (no names mentioned) * "Draft another center or two and perhaps a bigger shooting guard in the second round." (again no names mentioned) * Interest in a player like Israeli SF/PF Omri Casspi (wrongly spelled Omar) in the draft, and maybe let him in Europe for another year * Maybe bring over Joel Freeland and Petteri Koponen or use as trade bait * Most likely to be traded: Sergio, Travis * Extend Brandon and LaMarcus This might not yield the impact we would hope for but could fit a "cautious KP" strategy only tweaking the roster.
