Portland - NY Trade Rumor Reported Yesterday


Hey Guys,


Didn't see this posted anywhere else.  But yesterday Hoopshype was linking to a rumor that Portland and New York have been involved in trade talks regarding a sign and trade for David Lee.  (sorry don't have the link)

Things have been slow around here lately so I figured we could discuss it.  It appears that the deal Portland wants is Outlaw plus Blake for Lee.  But apparently New York won't make a deal without Rudy being included.  

MY THOUGHTS: I think it's been discussed to death around here why Lee isn't the best fit for Portland.  Same as Milsap.  He's too good to play behind someone like LaMarcus.  However, I think Lee would be a huge upgrade over Outlaw so this move would make a lot of sense.  

I'm not sure that acquiring Andre Miller makes Blake expendable.  If anything, Bayless is the one I would look at trading, but I don't think the salaries would work.  

I don't have a problem trading Rudy but we better be sure we get someone who is a great fit in return.  I'm not sure David Lee is the right guy.  Especially if we're only getting him for one year. 

Overall, I think this could be a decent deal for Portland and I wouldn't complain at all if it happened, but I'm not sure if it's the best move to make.
