Trade Partners?


As an OSU fan, I quickly became a Portland Trailblazers fan once Oden was drafted. I had hoped that he would workout for you guys because I knew that a healthy trio of Oden, LMA and Roy would easily contend for WCF every year. Alas, only one piece has remained healthy for you guys...and for that, you have my sincerest sympathies.

But this isn't so much about the misfortune you've had, because as a Cleveland everything fan, you can't quite touch me. :D This is about the NBA Draft. There has been a lot of talk with the Cavs draft picks being potential movers this draft (with a rumor of us gunning for #2). I hate that idea...

That being said, I'm all for trading back (or, if need be, trading up without giving up our #4) and the Blazers seem to be one of our prime suspects. ;)

Over on Fear The Sword, there's been a lot of talk amongst the many fans and the one thing we can't seem to do is agree on who the Cavs should draft...mostly because there's a lot of arguments over who's available. I'm not a guy who's in Harrison Barnes corner...in fact, I'm higher on Perry Jones and Jeremy Lamb than I am on the UNC Product who struggles to create a shot for himself.

There are a couple of trades that I had in mind.

#4, #24, #33 (2nd round) for #6 and #11 as a base trade. Other stuff could be used

Another possibility is #24, #33 and #34 for #11 (though that seems like it would be even harder to work out.)

It's a deep draft, and for the Cavs, I don't like the idea of having 4 rookies on the roster (to go with 2 more 2nd year players) What I'm looking for here is a Blazers perspective. Obviously I have my Cleveland-Homer glasses on here. What would it take to get the #6 and #11 or even just the #11. I think we all know that Varejao, Kyrie and Tristan Thomposon would not be part of the equation.
