Tyrus Thomas Trade Question


On ESPN.com i have been reading about a 3 way trade that involves the Portland Trailblazers, the Los Angeles Lakers, and the Chicago Bulls

The Lakers would get:

Kirk Hinrich

The Bulls would get:

Adam Morrison

Steve Blake

Travis Outlaw

Juwan Howard

The Blazers would get:

Tyrus Thomas

Sasha Vujacic


Now I understand why the lakers would want this, they get a nice PG and lessen the amount of money they would have to add to next seasons payrolls.

I understand kind of why the bulls would do; expiring contracts etc.

What I want to know is why the Blazers would be interested. I know that ESPN or Yahoo! has already reported that Sasha Vujacjc could be a deal break since supposedly the Blazers have no real interest in him or his not so good looking contract.

Even if that could be resolved I dont understand why we would want Tyrus Thomas at this point in the season, especially when we have to give up a bunch of players. Some of them like Outlaw (desperately needed 4th quarter scoring) and Blake (big fan of the Blake + Miller lineup) could be pretty useful down the stretch. Plus its not like we dont have two up and coming PFs in Dante Cunningham and Jeff Pendegraph
