Default Re: Portland Sending T. Green To Denver For Von Wafer

At this point you really can't question any move Kevin Pritchard makes. He doesn't ever make a bad move and knows talent. I mean if I were trading with Portland any one Kevin Pritchard wants I might want to hang onto. Green didn't know what he was doing out there at all and was developing very slowly.

I think this is a good deal.

Oh and to fellow Blazers fans we got rid of Green for this:

I think his athleticism makes him have much more potential than Green.

Here is Von Wafer's Identity: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvyZ6ZxqFME

No way can there be a thread talking about Wafer with a mention of this.

Tauren was the 'glue guy' on those Florida championship teams, and like somebody else said, that's probably his only value to any NBA team....and I'm not sure how much impact a rookie can have in that regard anyway. I doubt he ever does much on the basketball court.

Does Von have attitude problems? I actually do remember reading something negative about him a good bit ago but I can't recall what it was . Not a huge deal either way...

I actually get the feeling that Pritchard got Von Wafer as a piece to move around in the off season. It'll be much easier to convince a team that Wafer makes a good second or third piece on a trade than Green.

Von Wafer is a cool name.

That is all I have to say about this trade.

And now, taking the court, VON WAFER!

RoseCity tends to exaggerate a bit, but saying Pritchard is oen of the best GMs around is pretty close to the truth actually. Think about what he's done in the last few years, with trades. Who could have had the balls to trade Randolph for Frye, and then arrange a trade to aquire Aldridge? Or the trade he made that landed Roy in Portland?

Pritchard can't "do no wrong", but he's pretty damn good at seeing the uncut diamond and letting one of the contenders for COTY shape them into a glimmering finished product.

But like I said, I don't think Von Wafer was intended to build on Portland's team, I think he's intended to be traded in the off season.

Yeah this is pretty much the truth.

Despite RoseCity7's deep homerism, he's actually pretty dead on with the Kevin Pritchard comment regarding his ability as a GM.

The guy is very skilled and not afraid to pull a move.

Taureen Green is a rookie who played for the University of Florida. He helped lead the team to two NCAA titles as the lead point guard. He doesn't have an NBA height, but he is still quick enough to keep up with most guards and can hit the long ball (supposedly...). I actually think there's potential for him.
