We should trade Roy


Lebron leaving Cleveland sure shook up the NBA.  Now it looks like Every NBA star wants to leave their team and join a super-team.  What are the poor small market teams to do?  Are we doomed for a life mediocre players who play second fiddle to New York, LA, and South Beach? (At least when the Blazers relocate to Washington, we can call them the Generals).   You don't have to look far to see the impact this has on other small market teams.  CP3 wants out of NO, and Melo wants out of Denver.  What hurts these teams even more is that they can't/won't trade their superstar because they can't get an honest value for them.  CP3 is great, but he only has one year left on his contract so teams are weary about sending to much over to NO only to have Paul leave when his contract is up.  The same goes for Carmelo.  So both Denver and New Orleans are stuck knowing they can trade and get a lower value in return, or play their one year out and beg and plead to have their player stay.  But who wants to look like these guys?  So here's my proposal...

Brandon Roy has 5 years left on his contract.  If we trade him now  we might be able to get some good talent for him or maybe some key lottery pics in the next few drafts.  So I say for the sake of our dignity we trade Roy now before we beg him to stay by painting a giant sign on the side of a building.  Who know's he may also want a bigger family and start demanding time off for the birth of his children.
