AMEC + MCEC > AMEC + JPEC w/ Poll

One of the very smart things KP did was make our roster flexible in talent, as well as in salaries.  He was able to sign players in such a way, that continue to give us financial flexibility in trades, which is hard to do in this day and age because of salary cap rules. This year, we have a fair amount of flexibility with Andre Miller and Joel Przybilla's expiring deals. That gives us $14-15 million dollars we can send out to bring in a player(s) that makes roughly the same. HOWEVER, this brings me to my point. Marcus Camby was signed to a two year extension last year. Also, Andre Miller has a team option to bring him back for the 2011-2012 season if Portland wanted to. That means, if we are simply willing to keep MIller this upcomming season (which isn't a bad thing at all in my opinion), we could pick up his one year team option and combine it with what will be the newly expiring contract of Marcus Camby for a total of almost $20 million dollars.  With this scenario, we would be one of the major, if not the major players in making a trade next season. The added bonus in this scenario, assuming Joel Przybilla heals and can come back healty, is that we could keep him this upcomming year and resign him for what I would assume be a reasonable amount. He is good enough to be a starter on many teams, and would continue to be an excellent back-up to Oden
