Rumors: Blazers Explore Trading Felton To Lakers For Blake?

It's probably time to start watching what I joke about. Last week, in an interview with Portland Trail Blazers Acting GM Chad Buchanan I asked, "So when are you going to trade for Steve Blake?" That tossaway line is apparently coming to reality right before our very eyes. Jason Quick of The Oregonian wrote on Saturday night... -------------------------- There are reports out there that the Los Angeles Lakers are in the market for a point guard, and that Blazers' point guard Raymond Felton is among their targets. Perhaps some type of deal that involves Steve Blake coming back to Portland to run coach Nate McMillan's system? I don't know if McMillan has been more comfortable with a point guard during his era than Blake, and it would allow Jamal Crawford to return to his more natural shooting guard position. -------------------------- Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com reported on Sunday... -------------------------- A league source has informed CSNNW.com that the Los Angeles Lakers and the Portland Trail Blazers have had "exploratory talks" regarding Trail Blazers' guard Raymond Felton. According to the source, talks have been ongoing for weeks and it is likely to involve Lakers' guard Steve Blake in the deal. -------------------------- Blake is one of just 11 point guards in the NBA with a lower PER than Felton. That's impressive for all the wrong reasons. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
