With a lockout looming and the team in need of mini rebuild, is now the time to move these assets? The Blazers currently have need for depth at the 2, 3, and 5. Which just so happens to be positions that the Euro's can play. Is it likely or desirable that the blazers will be able to bring these guys over next year?

Now, I don't think that anyone of these guys is built to be a star in the NBA, but I would argue that they each have value as role/bench players. For a rebuilding team (Was, Philly) or a team that values international talent (NJ, Tor) could these guys could be part of a package? What could the blazers get in return?
Remember these are three first round picks that have solid role player potential and should have reasonable contract demands.
