Trade Drawer

Brandon Roy is hoping for a trade and so am I.

Cho supposedly made a call to Atlanta for Crawford. Why? We can grab him next year as FA. He's a Seattle guy and great friends with Roy. 

But the Atlanta call is not the call I would have made. I would've called Memphis and enquired about OJ Mayo and Thabeet. I would've offered Dre Miller, Rudy Fernandez, the rights to Claver and the higher of our two first round picks next season.

Memphis need all the money they have to resign Zbo and Marc Gasol. Gay and Conley were given huge deals. So financially the trade is good for them. It gets OJ and Thabeet off the books. Rudy gets to be with a spaniol buddy, they get another spaniol in Claver and a first rounder.

We get OJ who I think is a great outside shooter and will keep defences honest to assist Roy. His stats last season were quality. Check out his 3pt shooting %.  This season he's stuck on the bench and playing 10 minutes less per game. They tried using him as PG in preseason with mixed resluts. Who says he has to play PG with the Blazers. he and Brandon can take turns. Thabeet also adds big man depth and relief. He has a team option in a year and a half, so if he sucks we wont pick up the option.

The deal can be altered if the Blazers think giving up a 1st rounder is too much. Maybe add Elliot Williams instead.

But I recall Paul Allen saying he was sick of first round exits. If so we need to make a deal. Now.

Time to earn your money Cho.

I'd also give Houston a call and make enquries about Oregon native Brooks. With Lowry playing so well and Brooks being a FA we can easily acquire next season, it wouldn't hurt to ask what they'd want for him.

 

Go Blazers!!!
