I don't expect Webster to stay long as he is on the trading block and there will be takers just off his potential alone.

Anyways, I'm happy either way, Rush or Bayless...kind of got a little down when it first came out with the name Augustin then changed to Bayless because I'd much rather have Augustin but Bayless is just as good, we won't need him to play much point since Brandon will have the ball in his hands the most so

WELCOME JERRYD!!

Bayless/Blake/Jack/Rodriguez/Koponen
Roy/Fernandez
Outlaw/Webster/Jones
Aldridge/Frye/Freeland/McRoberts/LaFrentz
Oden/Przybilla

I expect Jack, Frye, Webster and possibly Jones to be on the way out.

Freeland still isn't confirmed to be coming over for this season, but I added him anyways.

Kevin Pritchard did it again.

Bayless is the 2nd best pg in this draft behind Rose.

(Gordon and Mayo are 2 guards

I am really excited, Bayless is going to make a great pg for the blazers. This is sureal

The actual trade is Rush, McRoberts and Jarrett for Bayless and Diogu.

Looks good to me. The draft isn't over yet though, i wouldn't be surprised if KP has something else up his sleeve.

You lose McRoberts too but I don't think that makes much of a difference.

Bayless/Blake
Roy/Webster/Fernandez
Outlaw/Webster
Aldridge/Diogu
Oden/Frye/Przybilla

That's a mad deep team... Blake, Webster, and Frye in a second team? Wow...

That's scary. Just look at how stacked the west will be next year with L.A., New Orleans, Portland and San Antonio.

We just picked up Arthur!

We got two top 10 picks in the first round basically

OMG

MOVE WEBSTER BECAUSE ARTHUR IS THE REAL DEAL!

Bayless/Blake/Rodriguez/Koponen
Roy/Fernandez/Webster
Outlaw/Arthur
Aldridge/Frye/Diogu/LaFrentz
Oden/Przybilla

THIS IS NOT FAIR TO THE REST OF THE NBA!

arthur is a pf....and i think our first second round pick was dumb. we should've gotten deandre jordan, cdr, chalmers, or kyle weaver.

Well Arthur is already gone for Batum. I love Joey Dorsey but DeAndre Jordan would've been nice to have so we can move Joel Przybilla's contract. I hate that he'll be making over 6 million in the last year of his deal and he'll be I think 33 or 34 and probably with bad knees and not doing anything worthy and by that time then Jordan would be in the prime of his career. We did get Asik though.

good trade guys...you guys clearly won that trade. I cant beleive how dumb Bird is for trading Bayless...I was so excited when we drafted him. I thought we were sooo lucky that he fell so much...didnt think Bird was that stuid to let him go so soon

i too would've really liked us to draft deandre...that would've been a real steal. and we traded Asik, so no center...

kp did good, and he may turn out to be right, but i think we should've gotten deandre just for his tremendous upside. at the least, he turns out to be a tradeable asset very quickly. or he turns out to replace pryz and be real good...oh well.

I think that happened because you guys got TJ Ford. If you kept Bayless, you would just have the same issues the Raptors were having with Ford/Calderon. Pacers probably wanted Rush and figured he'd drop at least to #13, so this way instead of just drafting Rush, you got Rush and Jack. Plus you don't have to pay Rush as much at #13.
