    True, but neither did anything with their talent early in their careers.

    Looking back on it, Darius actually had seasons of negative WS/48 with Portland. What was Paul Allen thinking??

    Defiantly wasn't talking of trading either one of them for Beasley just that if we can move Nico for Rondo somehow i'd take Beasley or if we trade Crash somewhere.

    Official rumors I can confirm as being rumors:

    1) Batum/Matthews for Rondo
    2) Oden for a lottery pick
    3) Felton for Blake (even though it doesn't work under the trade rules)

    I don't come around this forum very often... PapaG - How legit are any of these rumors? Do you have any inside sources, or are you making up this crap and claiming they are rumors?

    If true, I would take the Rondo & Oden trades and run!

    You should read the thread on Lakersground about that. They expect us to take back other players they dont want and be act like they'd be doing us a favor, I love how entitled that board is.

    That's OK - their sense of entitlement can't be much worse than how many posters here feel like we can just trade two or three pieces of our garbage for just about any other star (or even combination of stars) from whatever team we choose to pilfer (that is, IF we had a GM to actual make any trades).

    Sure it does. Blazers receive Lakers' TPE for Felton. Then Lakers receive Blazers' TPE for Blake. Very simple.

    Actually I think Crawford for Beasley would be one of the better moves POR could make, PROVIDED they follow it up with dealing Wallace.....

    Beasley is ony 23 years old, he has potential, his contract is up this year, so you can test him out and if he completely flops let him walk, just like you would have let Crawford walk, and I think if you like him, you might be able to resign him for a fairly good deal. He has a history of irratic behavior, obviously a concern, but all reports I have seen from MIN say that he is a hard worker and good teamate....

    Talent\youth\possibility to sign for a modest deal is good....He is worth the risk IMO....

    Now what can POR get for Wallace?

    I think a deal with HOU could be had....Maybe ORL? What other teams?

    If we were to get Beasly, then I don't mind Felton, Matthews and Wallace three-way with Phoenix and Orlando. Orlando seems to really want Nash so they can keep Howard. We could probably get their pick as well.

    Here is a nice deal I guess

    Well, that would certainly improve our outside shooting. However, I don't see Orlando giving up their 2nd, 3rd, and 4th best players for Nash.

    I think Matthews would be an upgrade for them. The components would help them on the defensive end.

    Their new starting 5 looks damn good on paper too. Nash, Matthews, Turk, Baby and Howard. Matthews and Howard would be the defensive anchors. I think if Matthews gets his shots in rhythm, he would be a much better shooter. And having Nash and Howard demanding so much attention, would leave him wide open.

    My thought was less about Matthews/Redick than about giving up Anderson to get Nash. However, if that's the cost of being able to keep Dwight, then obviously that's a move they would want to make.

    New rumor: Pacers Interested in Crawford

    On the Indiana Pacers

    I don't think they are actively trying to shake up the team. [Chris] Kaman and [O.J.] Mayo, however, are both players they're interested in. Jamal Crawford as well.
