Default What do you think of this trade?

Sign and Trade:


Quote:
Portland receives:
Andre Miller

Philly receives:
Steve Blake
Martell Webster

Ric Bucher is reporting that there is a possible sign and trade in the works involving Miller and Blake. And since their salaries alone won't work there will have to be another Portland player involved. Martell is the likely target with Sixers needing a SG and with Roy/Rudy/Outlaw/Batum/possiblly Hedo where does he fit?

What do you think?

I'm fine with it. I'd rather see Kirk come our way though. He is younger and plays better D. And I think that trade does work because Portland is under the cap, though that would make us have considerably less money to offer Hedo.

When asked about a reported trade rumor of Steve Blake and Travis Outlaw to Philly for Andre Miller, Pritchard said, "NO!!!"

Of course what's he supposed to say???

Actually, I would love to see a GM or coach get asked something like this and then just hesitate, turn to an assistant, have the assistant write some notes, then turn back to the reporter and say, "We're looking into that...."

I'd trade Outlaw before I trade Martell

I don't understand why the Blazers are going after David Lee and Andre Miller. Andre Miller can not shoot outside 18 feet and needs the ball to be effective at all. His defense is on the down side at this point in his career and if he is signed I honestly wouldn't want him to be the starter because I feel like he should be used more as a tutor to Mills and Bayless, two guys who can shoot better than him and Bayless who can defend better, than be the starter.

David Lee can't score unless he is getting a put back or easy lay in/dunk. He can't shoot, he has no post game and no defense.

Also, there would be no reason to send two players for Miller because the salaries wouldn't need to mtch because Portland is under the cap.
