They also acquired Channing Fry and Steve Francis for Dan Dickau, Zach Randolf, and Fred Jones. What do you think about these acquisitions?
My 2 cents:
Everyone knows Oden is going to be a great player. I think the second most important acquisition was Taurean Green. Though he was the last player taken, he gives this team important depth behind Jarett Jack. Petteri Koponen could also be a solid point guard. I think Green came into a great situation in Portland, where he will really get a chance to proove himself and compete for playing time.
This is a very young team with loads of talent. Josh McRoberts was a steal in the second round and with Lamarcus Aldridge and Brandon Roy along with Travis Outlaw and Martell Webster this team has a lot of tallent to work with.
Saying all that...I'm still a rockets fan..GO ROCKETS!
Green is not more important then Rudy Fernandez or Josh Mcroberts IMHO
Francis(might be waived) Jack and Rodriguez are the main PGs in portland Green might not even get a contract with the team plus they could go after Calderon now that they have alot of new young talented players
PF-Aldridge or Frye/McRoberts
magloire is free agents witch they will have to let go
30 year old Ime udoka they will prob keep there oldest player is Lafrentz 31
there avg age is 23.4 and thats no adding James Jones whitch they also aquired tonight
i think they need to get some veterans in here and teach the younger players what they know
