Jaynes: Luke Ridnour Is "Backup Plan" For Blazers

Dwight Jaynes of CSNNW.com writes on recent trade talk involving the Portland Trail Blazers and Minnesota Timberwolves. ---------------------------- I do believe there is something to all the talk of Portland sending Jamal Crawford to Minnesota for Luke Ridnour. There's no getting around the fact that Nate McMillan seems to prefer using Wesley Matthews as the backup shooting guard over Crawford. If that's the case, with Nic Batum now firmly ensconced in his rightful position as the starting shooting guard, Crawford isn't going to get the minutes he deserves. If that's the case, move him and move him as soon as possible. I'm not sure what they were thinking of by bringing him here in the first place. I also been told by league sources that the Ridnour trade is a backup plan for the Blazers, who are still hard after another point guard. That could be [Steve] Nash, Rajon Rondo or Jose Calderon. ---------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
