the following about the Portland Trail Blazers.
Raymond Felton has fallen out of favor with just about everyone in Portland. He has been shopped around a little. He’d love to be traded, and the Lakers have expressed some level of interest. Raymond may not be the perfect answer for the Lakers’ woes, but if Portland decides to dump and the Lakers cannot find a better deal there could be a match.
Gerald Wallace has a $9.5 million player option next year and sources say his camp has made it clear that if healthy he’ll opt for Free Agency if only to secure longer term money. That’s means Portland has to decide whether to trade him now or risk losing him to the open market.
Sources close to Crawford say he has not asked for a trade, but wouldn’t be opposed to a deal either, especially if it landed him in a less chaotic situation.
Portland has six games remaining before the trade deadline, if the downward trend continues, look for a fire sale in Portland.
