Hollinger: Andre Miller Is Portland's "Most Expendable Piece"

194
John Hollinger answers a few questions about the Portland Trail Blazers in his ESPN.com chat... -------------------------- What can the Blazers do to improve this offseason? "One obvious way to get better is by having a healthy Greg Oden. Beyond that, I think they have to get more shooting, and Andre Miller is the most expendable piece in that equation. I can undestand the hesitation to deal him, but unless they can find a market for Brandon Roy (good luck with that), Miller and Fernandez are the expendable pieces. I'm also interested to see what Elliot Williams can give them." Do you think Steve Nash will finish his career in Phoenix? "No. I think he'll be traded this summer, and he'll have a strong say in where he goes as a free agent-to-be. Trying to figure out the best way to entice him to Portland. (Soccertown, USA! The closest NBA city to Victoria, BC! C'mon, it'll be great!) I gotta think Miller and Batum would be a decent package for Phoenix, although I don't know if it would win the bidding." -------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
