As nice as it would be to clear the log jam at the 2, it is Batum who holds the most value and who could generate the most significant change to the Blazers roster in the off season. Personally, I'd love to see a full season of Matthews, Wallace and Aldridge at the 2, 3 and 4, with Batum as the sixth man. However, I'd also love to see the Blazers find their PGOTF and get some solid depth at the 4 and 5 positions. Batum could certainly be the answer to either of these.
Assuming you could find the right trading partners (and that Irving will be taken #1 in the draft), what would you do with Nic Batum?

Nothing. Keep him, go with Miller at PG one more year, and look for size and a backup PG with the current draft position and with the MLE. (125 votes)
