I have heard multiple times on this site and the radio that the Martell for Luke Babbitt trade has turned out to be a dumb move because he is in the d-league now. Every time I hear that I can't help but think "what are you talking about? We didn't trade Martell for Babbitt." We traded Martell Webster for a backup small forward spot and minutes, and for a rookie who didn't need minutes. The blazers at the time they made the trade were probably already thinking about the free agency period, and the player that they coveted played that position. Wesley Matthews is without question better than Martell. Martell dreams of one day becoming what Wes is in his sophomore season. He is way better at defense and attacking the rim. I know Martell would have been very upset about playing the role Babbitt is playing this year. This is why I think that was a good trade. I also don't think going to the D-league is a bad thing. Its a chance to get him game minutes since we don't have enough to go around and we can call him back up if needed (like we just did).
