Thursday Trades

I have been doing a lot of reading on here as of late, I recently read a great piece by timmy and it made a lot of sense to me. I believe we need to target guys Aldridge's age. I read an article earlier suggesting that players like Luol Deng, Rudy Gay, Danny Granger, Joe Johnson, Josh Smith. Andre Iguodala, Tyreke Evans, and Kevin Martin all are in position to potentially being shopped. The majority of them are all entering or are in there primes give or take.

I believe the Blazers need to take this route, we need to think about winning, we don't have the 1st pick in the draft or even the 2nd. Yes, the 6th and 11th are great but not complete franchise changing picks. We NEED a big three.

Look at today's NBA, Wade,Lebron,Bosh,Durant,Westbrook,Harden,Parker,Ginobli,Duncan,Kobe,Bynum,Gasol,Gay,Randolph,Gasol. Just about every single elite to near elite team has a "big 3" I think Olshey needs to target this big 3 while the market is hot on Thursday. Imagine Aldridge playing with Tyreke Evans and Danny Granger. Wouldn't that be a sight? Or Aldridge with Iguodala and Luol Deng? I'm not saying those particular players would work or the salaries match or anything, I'm just trying to paint a picture. We need a big 3, and this off-season is that season to strike.

The free agent market will be big next season. And this draft is deep, but if we want a chance of winning a championship withing 2 years we need this route, and the Blazers are very capable of doing it. I want a championship, I don't know about you.

Go Blazers!
