Three-point shooting is something the Portland Trailblazers lacked last season, but now with Raef LaFrentz, they probably just got better in terms of three-point shooting.

The Milwaukee Bucks and Steve Blake is a good marriage in my opinion. Brian Skinner is a good person and player to have on the team.

This is a pretty good trade.

Ok, but I haven't heard you mention the name Joel Pryzbilla. Obviously one of these centers won't be getting alot of time, I just don't get the trade for both sides. They wanted rebuild and play the young guys, what's up with the trades?

Bobby Simmons/Ersan Ilyasova /
Charlie Villanueva/Joe Smith/Brian Skinner
Andrew Bogut/Gadzuric

That's how I see it.

Yeah, I suppose that makes a little more sense, as opposed to having Gadzuric or Bogut playing out of position, but I still think Charlie V is extremely undersized at the PF spot. I just can't see him guarding the Duncans and Garnetts with much efficiency at all. But w/e, I'm not that into the Bucks anyways, so I don't really have any clue what they are going to try to do. I was just posting for the sake of something to do. Haha, how sad is that?

Joel Pryzbilla will be the starting Center of course. I didn't mention him because it was obvious. The player who won't be getting alot of time is Raef LaFrentz, it's not a hidden secret. He knows it. He's thirty years old. He even said that he's been in the league for eight years and can also be a mentor to many of the young players. There won't be that many centers, just three centers after this trade. Joel Pryzbilla, Jamaal Magloire, and Raef LaFrentz. Raef LaFrentz will probably share the Power Forward spot, maybe, he'll be known mainly for his three-point shooting to space the floor.

adamcz should be satisfied. They got something out of Jamaal Magloire. He was an expiring contract and what if he left without the Milwaukee Bucks getting anything back at the end of the season??? They just acquired some decent players in Steve Blake and Brian Skinner.

The Bucks got raped. I can't believe people even question the deal from Portland's end. Blake put up numbers on a lottery team, Skinner's defense is insanely overrated, Ha is garbage.

Magloire's contract is expiring and I'm hearing people in this thread say that is maybe the only plus for Portland.

All three players they gave up have expiring deals.

Huh?

A Roc gets the gold for knowing the correct lineup.

Actually with this trade they get rid of two players that would take time from joel and aldrige. These guys are actually both centers or in skinners case a power forward. this trade would allow two postions to be shared between five guys (center and powerfoward: joel, zack, aldrige, magloire, and raef can play sf because of his range). Also trading blake allows jack, juan, dickau, and brandon roy either play point or sg. If anything this frees up space for the blazers and they get a veteran to help out the team that averages nearly a double double and if they dont like him they don't have to sign them next yr.

This really makes no sense.

It's been bothering me all night.

Why the fu*k would Milwaukee do this? I figure that Portland maybe wants someone to package with Miles to get him out of town, but I have no idea why the Bucks would want the hunk of junk they just got. There had to be a better deal out there.

The players that are supposedly going to the Milwaukee Bucks are not junk. Steve Blake is a good Point Guard. He can hit the three-pointer, plays hard, and plays defense. Brian Skinner is a very good Power Forward. He scraps for rebounds and gets points. He's a decent veteran and a great addition to any locker room.

Steve Blake and Brian Skinner are pretty good and underrated additions to the Milwaukee Bucks.

Steve Blake is alright. He's a good 2nd/3rd point guard.

Brian Skinner is alright. He's a good backup big man, but no one seems to want him and he makes 5.4 million dollars. He's overpaid.

Ha Sueng-Jin = junk.

So it's okay for Milwaukee to trade the best available center out there for a decent, overpaid backup big man, a reserve point guard, and Ha Sueng-Jin?

Whatever, man.
