Other talks that emerged Tuesday included interest from the Portland Trail Blazers in acquiring small forward Gerald Wallace from the Charlotte Bobcats. The Blazers would package the expiring $12.7 million salary of Raef LaFrentz, and a third team could be involved. Mark this as another sign that the Blazers are investigating all opportunities.
Also, there has been renewed interest around the league in acquiring Richard Jefferson from the Milwaukee Bucks, who may be forced to unload salary to avoid the luxury tax. Several teams have shown interest, though the Trail Blazers appear to have dropped out of the bidding.

I don't think that the Blazers will make a move before the trade deadline, but if they manage to get Gerald Wallace, that would make them even better and potentially better than Denver for the #3 seed in the West.

The Bobcats aren't going to give up Gerald Wallace for expirings....When he got hurt, we lost 5 straight.

No chance.

Hopefully this is how the conversation went...

Blazers: Hey we like Gerald Wallace (who doesn't?)
Bobcats: Ok, well we listen to all offers so what did you in mind?
Blazers: Raef Lafrentz and some other ********.
Bobcats: :laugh2:

I hope it doesn't for the sake Wallace stays healthy in Portland. If so, the Blazers will be even better and I don't want any teams out west to become better besides Dallas...LOL But yeah for Portland fans this would be a sweet pickup if the center piece was LaFrentz.

It's going to happen... the fates are punishing you for changing your profile picture from G-Force to Sam Cassell.

It's only a one day thing to celebrate the blockbuster deal that is bringing Sam Cassell to Sacramento. Now us Kings fans can get a title.

IMO the Bobcats shouldn't pass if Rudy were in the offer.

ESPN doesn't know anything...remember that a Felton trade to Indiana was 'imminent' just a few days ago.
