Re: #RossIsBoss

Trade deadline in three days. Should be interesting to see who gets moved.

Right now some likely candidates are:
Paul Millsap or Al Jefferson or both
Brandon Jennings or Monta Ellis or both
Ben Gordon
Kris Humphries or Marshon Brooks or both
Josh Smith
Samuel Dalembert
Andrea Bargnani
J.J. Hickson
Shawn Marion
J.J. Redick

Re: #RossIsBoss

Seems unlikely that Redick is dealt.

Re: #RossIsBoss

if Blazers were willing to give Batum a ridiculous sum of money then I see no reason why they wouldn't want to do the same for Hickson, even though they have a terrible habit of sitting him for long periods in games for no fucking reason even if he is doing well. God damn do I ever hate small ball and when people give into the other team doing it.

They called him the Lion of Lannister to his face...

...and whispered "Kingslayer" behind his back

Re: #RossIsBoss

Because Hickson isn't Batum and they just drafted Meyers Leonard who looks to be their center of the future. He's a good prospect and I'm betting that they'd rather save cap space than re-sign Hickson. So while Hickson has some value due to him having a great season thus far, they try to trade him for picks or prospects or both.

Re: #RossIsBoss

Interested to see how the Bucks look, come next season. Jennings is likely to get a large contract, and it remains to be seen if Milwaukee will match. Ellis is also likely to decline his player option.

Re: #RossIsBoss

"isn't Batum", sounds like a huge compliment for a guy that is still overpaid. From the games I've watched this year Leonard has really not shown all that much and I'd rather have a safe bet in Hickson than a potential prospect that could fail altogether. Real value>potential.

also if Blazers have no real intent on making the playoffs in the near future they should trade LA as well instead of wasting his prime years.

Re: #RossIsBoss

From what reports I've read it seems like Jennings really doesn't want to come back to Milwaukee.

Monta isn't coming back either.

They should try to trade both to get some value back. IIRC the Hawks & Dallas were interested in Jennings. Maybe trade Jennings to Dallas for a package built around Collison or trade Jennings & Ilyasova to Atlanta for Smith & Teague.

@Showtime: What I mean by that is that the Blazers don't value Hickson nearly as much as they do Batum. Leonard looks like he'll be a solid starting center. I don't think Portland should trade Hickson either but oh well, isn't my favorite team. The Blazers would be a sure-fire playoff team in the West if they had any resemblance of a bench. Pretty sure they have one of the worst benches in NBA history.

When the best player off your bench is Luke Babbitt, you have problems.

Re: #RossIsBoss

last year's Lakers bench was pretty much a complete fail and is probably worse than this year's Blazers bench.

Re: #RossIsBoss

Idk, man. It's hard to top Ronnie Price/Sasha Pavlovic/Luke Babbitt/Jared Jeffries/Meyers Leonard.

Jordan Hill, Matt Barnes, Steve Blake & Josh McRoberts from last year's Laker team all would be the best player off the bench for Portland.
