Who does Portland sign this summer?
 
I hope we get Blake or Outlaw back. I was hoping Outlaw, 'cause we really need a scorer, but not sure if we will next year with two centers coming back. I'm really not liking Bayless' play though, and would like him replaced.

As much as I like Blake, I can't see him signing with Portland again, unless he's just not getting any offers.....I mean, can you imagine the conversation:

SB - "Okay, but I'd like a no-trade-clause."

Blazers - "Oh, don't worry about it, we won't trade you AGAIN!!!"

SB - "No, really, I want a no-trade clause."

Blazers - "But..."

SB - "Read my lips 'NO TRADE CLAUSE'!!!"

Travis Outlaw....love his energy, his length, his ability to attach the rim and hit a clutch three....and I've really supported him as a Blazer fan, but the guy has a very limited basketball IQ (or limited IQ in general, not sure) and gets completely lost on defense.....

Bayless is streaky and I would prefer him as the backup SG rather than the backup PG...as for replacing him, I hope the first place we look is at Patti Mills!!!

Do we bring back Pendergraph and Cunningham??? How about Juwan Howard???

Plus Blake had a garage sale, and was selling tons of Blazer memorabilia so I guess it's safe to say he's gone. I just really want a new backup PG. Hopefully we can sign someone, or Patty develops over the summer.

I'm pretty happy with the team, with the exception of the injuries. I'm fine with getting people healthy and not worrying too much about adding pieces. Sure we can pick up a draft pick and see how he works out, but as far as signings go, I can only think of trying to get an upgrade at J. Howard's spot on the team (meaning veteran who is content with helping the young guys, but ready to step forward in the rare times that he is called upon).
