Deeks: Assessing Blazers' Trade Deadline Moves

1
Mark Deeks of ShamSports.com has a thorough and thoughtful breakdown of the Portland Trail Blazers' NBA Trade Deadline moves on The Basketball Jones. --------------------------- With two deals, and the firing of coach Nate McMillan, Portland didn’t so much press the reset button today as park a bus on top of it. They dealt Gerald Wallace to New Jersey for an expiring salary, a dead salary, and a potentially lucrative pick, and followed that with a second deal that sent Marcus Camby to Houston for Jonny Flynn, Hasheem Thabeet and a second round draft pick. They’ve enjoyed and suffered through the busiest day of anyone since Ray Liotta in "Goodfellas," but in doing so, they may have stopped the rot. --------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
