Well, the free agency bonanza is about to open. I think the Blazers stand to benefit a great deal from this free agency market opening. They can either make a splashy move by leveraging trades to help teams open some cap space so they can go after a big name player, who knows maybe we end up with a big name ourselves out of all the fallout.
With all of the excitement about ready to get rolling I thought it important to take a gander of our entire roster. Below is a 3 deep roster by position with extras listed at the bottom. I am only listing a player in one position at this point even if they can work multiple spots (I actually like 8 man rotations, with a couple of key role players filling particular needs during particular needs). I just figure this is a good way to look at what we could see as a 15 man roster given what we currently have. It may prove useful in understanding what moves we should really look to make this summer if any.
Just doing it this way has made me rethink a few things. Przbilla becomes less expendable when you look at it this way, although Camby is more than able to cover primary backup roles for both Oden and Aldridge for example. So below is a brief list of questions to consider as the free agent market opens up:
So what do you think of this line up?
- What do we need?
- What would we like?
- Should we make any moves?
- What is our weakest position?
- What is our strength?
- Who is expendable?
- Who should we keep at all costs?
So what do you think?
