Barges (and Ross?) for Nick Batum with Blazers works. Gives the Blazer a 2 year window on a big man to play along side Aldridge and shed 2 extra years of contract.
No way do I see that deal ever going down. Batum is a good player and clearly better than Bargnani. He just struggled with a ton of injuries this year. Bargnani has negative value because of his contract and lack of production. Batum is nowhere near that level.
