If we trade Hickson, Leonard and Wes for a young center who plays defense and can rebound, it frees up more salary space for this summer's free agent signings. It also allows us to get something in return for Hickson and we can use Leonard to sweeten the deal.
One example would be to trade for Larry sanders, Przybilla, and Udrih
Then, we use our draft pick on Victor Oladipo who can replace wes as a great defender shooting guard. He is shooting at an unreal clip for a guard and has more athleticism than Wes. He would be our shooting guard for years to come with Elliot as a backup if he ever suits up in a Blazers Uniform again.Thoughts?
