Default Oden wasn't a given in Portland

Portland GM Kevin Pritchard fielded many trade offers for the TrailBlazer's No. 1 draft pick. He took a call from an Eastern Conference general manager, with whom he had past dealings. The executive made an offer that was moderate in shock value: A five-time All-Star and this year's lottery pick in exchange for the No. 1 pick and the Blazers' 2008 first-round pick. As enticing as the offer was -- the Blazers in years past had made a run at the All-Star player -- Pritchard declined on the spot. A team within the Blazers division proposed a trade involving a future Hall of Famer and a standout rookie for the Blazers' No. 1 pick. As Pritchard described it, he stayed up until 3 a.m. in his hotel room with his staff considering the offer.
From SI.com.

Which 5 time all stars are ther ein the east?

The player wasn't an all star this year (no 5 time all stars were selected in the east.) So that leaves JO & Paul Pierce...
probably PP and their pick. The Pacers didn't have a lottery pick.

And who are the future half of famer and a stand out rookie from their division? Foye & Garnett? Foye isnt a standout. Other than that there ae no teams with standout rookies in the Northwest....
