"I did not say there was a problem, I would have been happy playing with him because he is amazing, he has already proved it in the NBA and in the national team, but in Portland there would be fewer minutes for me. If you expend part of the budget in a player like him is because he is going to have minutes and I already have Brandon Roy, who is the team´s super star".He said it wasn´t that he did not see himself "capable" of competing with the Turk, but he admitted today that "knowing that he´s not going to be in the team "gives me confidence about having a bigger role in the team next year, because I feel I´m capable of dealing with the task." I have contract with Portland and in the NBA we depend totally on the team with which we have contract. If Hedo signing was going out, I would have been given fewer minutes. "You can´t ever close doors, you always have them opened for (listen) everything what they could offer you". "Just now the goal is to be in the NBA many years and in Portland". Asked about how he values the Blazers reception when he went to Portland, "It was a family for me, not only in the sport field, personally the people have supported me very much and I would like to continue."
