Spencer Hawes or Avery Bradley?

Spencer Hawes is a 25 year-old 7-footer that shot 42% beyond the arc and averaged three assists per game last season. He might be the ideal back-up center for Portland. As a "Stretch 5," Hawes would help off-set spacing issues that may crop up when Terry Stotts puts Will Barton and T-Rob on the court.

Avery Bradley is a 23 year-old combo guard that plays defense at an all-NBA level. His shooting was supposedly an issue going into the season; but he shot just under 40% from behind the arc. Bradley might be the perfect 6th man for the Blazers, because he can help cover for Damian Lillard (or Will Barton) on the defensive end. The Blazers need to improve defensively--this guy might be able to help them crack the top ten next season.

Both players hail from the Pacific NW. Both are on clubs that are looking at major roster upheaval as they chase big game in the free agency period, so neither may fit into their current team's future plans. Pretend the Blazers could get either of them in a sign-and-trade deal in exchange for a) CJ McCollum or Meyers Leonard, and b) Portland's 2015 first-round pick.
