How we get a legit 7 footer to compliment Lopez

3 team trade involving Portland, Houston, and Philly.

Portland gets Asik- Lopez is a team guy who would accept coming off the bench to pacify big baby Asik knowing full well that he gets to close games due to being a better free throw shooter.

Houston gets Spencer Hawes and Allen Crabbe- Houston gets a floor spacing big man who can play next to Dwight Howard and another shooter in Crabbe who makes the money work and could actually get some playing time.

Philly gets Meyers Leonard, Cj McCollum, and/or a 2nd round draft pick/Will Barton- Philly does this trade because having Leonard be your starting center will guarantee a high draft pick, Mccollum is still hurt and wont be able to help Phiily short term. Long term, Meyers and CJ could be developed into solid players with McCollum being an intriguing backcourt mate with MC-Williams who happens to be big enough to guard 3 positions. Phiily is winning way to often for Hinke(the architect of stinkin for Wiggins) Hawes has to go.

An alternative trade would be Portland and Phiily doing a deal straight up. Leonard, McCollum, 2nd rd pick and or Barton for Hawes. Philly gets to tank and we get a Northwest guy who is 7'1 and is shooting 48% from downtown. He can play alongside Aldridge and Lopez. Talk about front court versatility. Hawes isn't known as a defensive big man although he can still block a shot and a half every game. There are many benefits to this deal- we can continue to develop TRob while keeping him on the short leash he deserves to be in while unleashing his immense athletic abilities in situational doses- we get to keep Freeland as an insurance against Hawes faltering in executing the Blazers team defensive principles. On the offensive side of the ball you have Lillard, Wes, Nic, Mo, D-wright, and then Hawes carpet bombing 3's all over the court while LMA continues to beast mode inside. The rest of the league says "YIKES!" Blazer fans let me know what you all think.
