Two mid firsts and a backup tweener.....show me a team that got anywhere with those kind of assetts. Jordan got f**ed in the a**hole once again.

With Jordans drafting history can you imagine what he'd pull out.

It's sad to see prizbilla and dante go the where legit professionals always playing hard and never complaining. they are perfect roll players for any team. Cunningham played out of position all year this year and never complained he even started at center a couple times adn did his best.

i thin it's a great trade but now the blazers only have one legit center and that's camby...and he's straight glass. the blazers have no other big guys unless they play aldrige at the 1 which wouldnt be good since he really doesnt like to bang but has to at times. with all the minutes he's playing who knows he may get injured if he plays the 1 all the time. I dont know how this small ball is going to work especially defensevely. Mcmillan has some work on his hands....i'm reall curious to see his rotation when Wallace gets here.

First, Aldridge has been a beast in the paint this season and the one its point guard, center is the five. The Blazers have one of the best 8 man rotations in the NBA if Camby is healthy and Brandon is at least 75% of what he was...maybe even 60%. Rich Cho has fine a great job putting hard defensive minded guys around the perimeter and getting guys to take the burden off the two stars of the team.

I hope the Heat signs Pryzbilla if the Bobcats waives him.

Portland still needs more depth at 5, and Da Vanilla Gorilla is a long-timer, would love him back.

I'm hearing the Bobcats likely won't release Przybilla and he will report to camp in Charlotte. However, Przybilla did hint at coming back after his contract, or in the case that the Bobcats change their mind.

Nobody gets anywhere with an aging Gerald Wallace either. I expect him to age Shawn Marion style. Dump the salary and take the picks. Stupid to cut D.Brown though. Re-sign that kid ASAP and freakin' play him! They should have done more to deal Jackson too. He's a guy who could be a great asset to a playoff team, but does little for Charlotte at this point. I wonder if Augustine and Jackson for Butler and Beaubois could have gotten done.

Hate to break it to you Gerald Wallace is 28 and in his prime, Shawn Marion is 32. Two mid first round picks by the worst drafting team in the league. Nice one Jordan.
