The prevailing wisdom regarding the search for a PG holds that Brandon needs a shooter who can play defense and won't dominate the ball.
I don't believe that is necessarily the case.
Brandon has shown the ability to take over a game with the ball in his hands in crunch time. However, I have seen this take a toll on him physically and as the number of clutch moments increase, the need for someone to take the pressure off Brandon will become huge.
Enter, Andre Miller, the classic creator and penetrator who has proven the ability to efficiently run a team, shoot a high percentage and finish in the lane. Miller's ability to get into the lane and improved passing (over Blake) will create more opportunities for easy baskets from Roy, Rudy, GO an Aldridge.
The downside is that Miller is older, is not an effective shooter from deep, and is not as accomplished a defender as Hinrich. Miller's ability to create would allow more mid range opportunites for the wings. Playing with Miller, Brandon could score more easy baskets in transisition and scoring from mid range and allowing him a break from being forced to carry the team on his back as he did this year.
With the extensions of Roy and Aldridge looming, there is a need to act now in free agency to add the piece that takes the Blazers to the next level.
There are those who will undoubtedly object to the idea of acquiring Andre Miller due to his age. However, a 3-4 year deal could act as a bridge to the Bayless era and allow Miller to mentor Bayless as a younger more athletic version of himself.
