I like this trade because the Blazers get a nice bench player in JJ Hickson. I think a Bayless, Matthews, Babbit, Hickson, and Oden bench sounds pretty good on both sides of the court. Especially since all those player have high ceilings for improvement.
Cleveland is happy because they get another young athletic forward in Brandon Bass, and a young F/C with a great locker room presence in Pendergraph.
Orlando is happy because they get a nice replacement for JJ Reddick in Rudy Fernandez at a much cheaper price.
Just thought this might be a nice little trade to improve the Blazers bench. We would still have Pryzbilla's expiring contract if we wanted to make any other moves
Not 100% on this trade but thought I would throw it out there. Please tell me what you think!
