Show Millsap the Money Part 2

Why Millsap?

He has chosen Portland as a possible destination before.

All of the other dial moving bigs (Howard, Jefferson, Smith, Bynum, West, Pek) are very likely going to Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, & LA or staying put.

$11 million+ could probably get us Millsap and our "starting center" Jermaine O'Neal

Better defender and offensive option than Hickson

Phoenix overvalues Gortat (likely that they will want Batum and nothing less from us)

Freeland may not be tradable without giving up a key player as well

Gives us the flexibility (if we need it) to look at trading LMA for players who don't necessarily replace him at the power forward slot.

We don't have to give up any of our core players.

Would give us a line up of -

Lilliard/McCollum/Minimum Salary Vet

Matthews/Barton/Crabbe

Batum/Claver/Training Camp Invitee

Aldridge/Millsap/Freeland

O'Neal/Leonard(Meyers not Myers like so much of the world appears to believe)/Withey

4th Quarter line-up of

LMA/Millsap/Batum/Lilliard and choice of McCollum or Matthews
