Could the blazers trade up to the second pick to draft Beal and than trade Beal to OKC for James Harden..... I would do it in a heart beat. Harden would be a great two next to Batum and Aldridge!
"The chances of a playoff team getting Beal are slim, but Finals runner-up Oklahoma City has invested quality time figuring out a way to get up high enough to land Beal. Beal told ESPN/ESPN.com Wednesday that Oklahoma City general manager Sam Presti told him during an interview in Chicago that he was interested in trying to move up to draft him. The Thunder's first-round pick currently isn't until No. 28. "He told me he was going to decide what they're going to do and considered getting up there," said Beal. Beal said Denver, which picks at No. 20, also made a similar statement. ESPN.com"
