It's a good deal for Portland, but it creates a lot of front court depth issues.

You have Camby at C, can you count Sean Marks as a back-up? Maybe they'll slide Aldridge to C, have Camby be a back-up, have Wallace at PF.

I think it was a really good deal, even if it does create a bit of depth issue in the front court. I don't understand why the Charlotte FO/MJ do this, I guess they're too concerned about saving money like they seem to be doing all the time.

Cunningham is actually one of the best backups you will have.

Very productive player while on the court here in Portland. One of the guys I always felt confident in when he is in the game.

Nice.. I hope Camby is healthy, now we need big men more then ever. But Wallace will bring defence and rebounding and some miss matches maybe even a few points.

That Charlotte team is awful, MJ has done a bad job organizing a good team, and him and company seem more worried about the luxury tax than they do committing to staying in the playoffs.

- Augustin isn't that good. Livingston's outplayed him lately.
- Gerald Henderson is probably the starting SG now, he really hasn't shown a lot, I will say that he is actually proving something and earning minutes.
- Stephen Jackson is the best player on the team, but having him as your best player is not going to get you success.
- Diaw isn't really a good low post PF, isn't too bad, but not what he used to be in Phoenix.
- Przybilla doesn't give you anything on the offensive end, defense is good, good rebounder I suppose.
- Cunningham might not be too bad off the bench actually.

In essence, this Charlotte team might be the worst team in the league on the offensive end now, they don't have any good offensive pieces outside of Captain Jack. I guess it gives you a couple 1st round picks, but Gerald Wallace is worth more than that.

This is seriously the best thing to happen to the Blazers in a long time. I LOVE Gerald Wallace on this team. Imagine if they resign a healthy Oden (that's a HUGE unlikely scenario). Wallace/Aldridge/Oden would compete with LA for the best front court rotation in the west.

Two 1st round picks are included in the deal.

Sounds like MJ is looking to rebuild for the future with more draft picks, and saving cap money. Will be interesting to see if it actually comes into fruition.

So basically, MJ just bought a team to say he owns an NBA team. :facepalm

And to think, Charlotte was the city with LJJ, Zo and MUGSY BOGUES. Now...:facepalm

I mean, I LOLed for real when I saw that Kwame Brown was on the Bobcats now. Does MJ not see the constant reminder about how awful he is at running an NBA franchise?!

Edit: The two first round picks makes it a bit more palatable, but still...Wallace was their second best player, borderline best. Portland picks aren't likely to be very high either.

It's not too bad for Charlotte. They'll be able to rebuild, which it seems like they're trying to do. A decent SF who plays defence and can hit the jumper in Cunningham and two first round picks. It'll save them some money as well.

Wallace is one of my fav players and I hated to see him go. In fact I am surprised Jordan did this....
But business minded :
He gets Prez for a couple years to man the paint with Kwame , and he gets two draft picks that is HUGE for a young franchise new owner.

Once Wallaces contract expires , I would not doubt he resigns with the Bobcats... He knows it was a business move , and we have to remember Wallace was given a chance by this team to prove himself.
I would not doubt he returns.

Man I left home for class at 3PM thinking the reports that said MJ was getting cold feet were true, and he'd come to his senses. Crash is by far my favorite Bobcat of all-time, I can't believe we gave up the best player in our franchise's history for that package.

Guess theres no reason for me to try to make it to the TWC Arena now, unless I'm trying to see the visiting team.

im kinda interested to see what daunte does in charlotte where he may get more run. he's super athletic. strong. hustler and very smart. he could be a very decent player.

and its not the trainers in portland. roy had knee problems all through college. camby is known to be injury prone. oden is a monster of a man whos body was still coming into its own. its pure god-awful bad luck thats been the problem with our injuries

Really? Sacramento wasn't exactly stoked to see him taken in the expansion draft (at least the fans weren't). I'm sure many teams that were in a building mode would have given the same chance.

I'm kind of bummed the Kings didn't make a move for him. He doesn't necessarily fill any of their holes (except they don't have a very good SF), but he was a popular player and I love his game.

Kujo
02-24-2011, 09:30 PM
Charlotte may this trade because of the two first round draft picks. Plus, it appears there now committed to giving big minutes to Gerald Henderson, who's played very good as of late.

Dante Cunningham is pretty solid from what limited action I've seen of him in the NBA. Kinda similar to Crash in some ways.

Love Gerald Wallace's game, but he has somewhat had a disappointing season.

It'll be a good move if MJ can turn the those first round picks into something.

Regardless, I totally understand why some Charlotte fans are pissed.

i dunno how likely that is... they got a new orleans pick for 2011 that the blazers got by trading bayless. it wont be a lottery pick and this draft is weeeeeak. and the other first rounder is top twelve protected through 2015. those arent great.

but maybe they package them in a differant deal or something.

I'm curious how he'll do given more minutes, but I wouldn't get your hopes up. I view him somewhere between a less than average 2nd string guy and a good 3rd string guy (on a good team). He's similar to Crash in the sense that he can hold down the SF and PF spot, but otherwise he severely lacks the athleticism to play like Crash.

Hell, Oden is a freak of nature with his wing span.

Aldridge and Andre have been in good healthy. Even Batum and Rudy have bounced back well.

Matthews is playing with a messed up ankle that seems to be getting better.

Our training staff is fine. If Andre Miller had injury problems, then it'd be the staff.

this. everyone knew about roys knees outa college. everyone knows giant 20 year old monster men are always more at risk than smaller more proportioned bodies. and it wasnt the trainers fault priz went down verrrry awkwardly... and then re-busted it falling in a shower. its the worst luck in a decade. not the worst training staff in a decade

I do think Wallace could get injured here, but it will be because of his style of play, not that training staff. Hell, I think Camby is going to get hurt again.

Oden may have major injuries get in his way, but Camby is out ever other week with a turned ankle or a sore foot. Real minor stuff keeps Camby out. I'm not too confident when people say we have Camby coming back soon.

I'll believe it when I see it.

I'll believe it when I see it.Wallace has toned down the crash mentality some, he is more reserved now and is not putting up the numbers he did last year. At least he will have a better chance in Portland of making a few playoff appearances again before his career is over in the next few years, he deserves it!

As a bobcats fan this trade saddens me, I would have much rather see jack go but I guess that wont happen. I guess Jordan is going to throw the towel in on a playoff run right now and rebuild for the next 4 years :cry:

Hopefully we get Pryz back in 30 days, that's the rumours floating around, because right now we have Zero front court depth. We must sign some one on a 10 day contract for now. I like this move. What if Oden can stay fit next season and fit in nicely? Pwoooahhhh. :rockon:

Poor man's Iggy.

And like some have mentioned, he's injury prone.

Now... I'm not defending the trade, because I haven't seen the other players, but i never understood why people were so high on Wallace. He's an explosive and athletic baller with little understanding of the game, and limited skills.

He was all defense first team. He's a great shot blocker and rebounder for his position and size. He's basically the perfect mentor for Nicolas Batum.

This trade is a homer run.

Even if you think he's a poormans Iggy, we gave up some draft picks, an expiring contract, and a player we drafted in the second round. Lol, if Wallace gets injured tomorrow, we still did a great trade.

You have not watched him playing even a game, have you?
He is one of the best defenders in the league, great shot blocker, great rebounder, can score about 18 points every night, can hit three and is decent penetrator. He will be perfect mentor for Batum who is playing Crush like style too, like someone mentioned above. And yeah, I would take Wallace over Iggy 9 of 10 times.

It's sad to see prizbilla and dante go the where legit professionals always playing hard and never complaining. they are perfect roll players for any team. Cunningham played out of position all year this year and never complained he even started at center a couple times adn did his best.

i thin it's a great trade but now the blazers only have one legit center and that's camby...and he's straight glass. the blazers have no other big guys unless they play aldrige at the 1 which wouldnt be good since he really doesnt like to bang but has to at times. with all the minutes he's playing who knows he may get injured if he plays the 1 all the time. I dont know how this small ball is going to work especially defensevely. Mcmillan has some work on his hands....i'm reall curious to see his rotation when Wallace gets here.

First, Aldridge has been a beast in the paint this season and the one its point guard, center is the five. The Blazers have one of the best 8 man rotations in the NBA if Camby is healthy and Brandon is at least 75% of what he was...maybe even 60%. Rich Cho has fine a great job putting hard defensive minded guys around the perimeter and getting guys to take the burden off the two stars of the team.

I hope the Heat signs Pryzbilla if the Bobcats waives him.

Przybilla is coming back to Portland, the rumors say.

:cheers:

Portland still needs more depth at 5, and Da Vanilla Gorilla is a long-timer, would love him back.

I'm hearing the Bobcats likely won't release Przybilla and he will report to camp in Charlotte. However, Przybilla did hint at coming back after his contract, or in the case that the Bobcats change their mind.

Two mid firsts and a backup tweener.....show me a team that got anywhere with those kind of assetts. Jordan got f**ed in the a**hole once again.

With Jordans drafting history can you imagine what he'd pull out. :oldlol:

Nobody gets anywhere with an aging Gerald Wallace either. I expect him to age Shawn Marion style. Dump the salary and take the picks. Stupid to cut D.Brown though. Re-sign that kid ASAP and freakin' play him! They should have done more to deal Jackson too. He's a guy who could be a great asset to a playoff team, but does little for Charlotte at this point. I wonder if Augustine and Jackson for Butler and Beaubois could have gotten done.

Hate to break it to you Gerald Wallace is 28 and in his prime, Shawn Marion is 32. Two mid first round picks by the worst drafting team in the league. Nice one Jordan.
