With two lottery picks in the Draft (#6, #11) and possibly over $20 million in salary cap space, the Portland Trail Blazers have a bevy of options going into the offseason. Could Paul Millsap or Kyle Lowry be part of the equation? Millsap has previously been linked to the Blazers in a trade for their No. 11 overall pick. Other players rumored to be going to Portland have included Steve Nash and Chris Kaman,

The Blazers, Warriors, Raptors and Hornets are also looking at various options with their picks. I think the Blazers at No. 6 or No. 11 are the likeliest of that bunch to make a trade. They have interest in Jazz forward Paul Millsap and Rockets guard Kyle Lowry.

if you could get one of those two for the 11th pick, and draft either a center or a pg (whichever you didnt trade for) with the 6th, you are in good shape

Bad move. They just need to rebuild completely.

They're not gonna get either of these players for just the 11th pick. They'll have to give up the 6th, this draft class isn't that good.

id say definitely hold onto the 11th pick and trade it on draft night if anything. someone who they think wont make it to 11 might slip down and they'll be kicking themselves if they traded it away already.

If you have LMA, Batum, cap space, and two draft picks in this deep draft why do you need to rebuild completely?

Edit: now that I think about it Lowry is better then any1 at 6. I do that. Lowry LMA batum the 11th pick cap space they can go to work

Because that is nowhere near enough a good enough core to beat the Thunder and LMA is a walking injury. He may never be the same player after his last surgery.

So you think they should get rid of Aldridge? Because he is 27 years old already and it doesn't make a lot of sense to surround him with a bunch of 20 year old rookies.

Really? He's one of the healthiest players that play for the Blazers I doubt a minor hip surgery is going to change that. And the Thunder's core may not even be around 2 years from now.

:facepalm: He missed like 10 games and is only 27 years old. Last season was like the only year that he missed significant time since his rookie campaign.

1) He started showing complications of a Heart Condition last season and had to get HEART surgery.

2)He has an abnormal hip

3)He had to get arthroscopic surgery.


This is all just last season.

Draft either Lillard and Leonard or Drummond and Rivers/Lamb/Marshall.

It really is too bad about Roy and Oden but I think if they use their draft picks on a centre (a la Drummond) at 6 and then BPA at 11 or trade for a good vet they should be set for a while if everything goes decent.

Drummond/FA or pick 11
Aldridge/Hickson
Batum/Babbit
Matthews/J Crawford
FA or pick 11/N.Smith/E.Williams

that roster would be at $48,763,245 not including rookies or FA's. Def good for spot 8 plus extremely young to grow

Screw Portland, you can't have Millsap.... Millsap is worth to much to the Jazz, we would never do it for the 11th. Especailly trading with a division rival ( that sucks ) Again SCREW PORTLAND!

I don't remember hearing about the the abnormal hip, but seeing as how the Portland medical staff is saying he should be 100% back to his normal health next season, i wouldn't worry about it now. Until he starts missing significant time it's all just speculation.

It's not uncommon for big men his size to have some complications in their late 20's. As long as he hasn't had any serious injuries that derailed him then i don't think it's a case for worry.

Houston isn't giving up Lowry for anything outside of a top 10 pick. If they did a trade with Portland it would have to be for the 6th not the 11th.

JoeDirt05
06-26-2012, 07:23 PM
why is lowery all of a sudden worth a top 10 pick? he had one good season and he lost his starting job to his back up houston would be lucky to get #11 for him and thats a stretch he has reached his ceiling and imo Lillard is worth more to the blazers then Lowery ever will be.

STL Don

I'd definitely trade one of two lottery picks for Lowry, he's a great player to add in rebuilding.

Kyle Lowry
Mathews
N.Batum
Aldridge

And use their 6th/11th pick on a center.

Bench- J.Crawford, Babbit, Flynn, Hickson, Thabeet/Przybilla/K.Thomas

So you think a guy with heart problems and a debilitating hip injury is not a problem? Good to know.

Some heart problems aren't that big of a deal. The irregular heart beat issue is often not that problematic and can be taken care of without impacting the players abilities on the court.


Anyways, you are just talking through your *** as usual.

He had a heart procedure and was starting 3 weeks later, never missing a game. The heart thing is not a problem at all. It has been stated many times by doctors that it will in no way influence his play what so ever.

I haven't seen anything about it being degenerative or problematic for future. If you care to back up these claims i would be more than happy to read the link your provide. Until then there is nothing to ignore as nothing has been presented.

Yeah, I mean didn't you guys lose Wes Matthews to them in free agency like 2 yrs back?

Im curious to know your take on all these injury cases Kobe/DWade/DHoward/Rose/Ginobili/Parker/Nash !!

Go through the timeline of Quick. It's there somewhere in March. Could care less either way.

True and Milsap has been healthy every yr and is still a backup and never been an allstar, just saying!

The Jazz would get a gift if the Blazers if the Blazers gave them the #11 pick for him.

Your right he is worth to much for the Jazz, if I remember your owner had to take out a loan to give him a 10 million dollar sign on bonus, hahaha

what a crysac :cry:

They Need to Draft Either 7'1 C Meyers Leonard (250lbs), or 7'0 C Tyler Zeller (247lbs) At #11, and Draft Lillard (Or Trade For Kyle Lowry) for the sixth Pick.

Not a Fan of Lowry But I know he's one of the better PG's in the League. If you need a PG He's Not a Bad Option.

The Blazers must be getting tired of the draft bust thing. I'd think about trading if I were them, too.

They already have youth. They need some real experience on that team...and durability.

Yeah I also haven't heard anything about the abnormal hip. His heart surgery isn't that big of a deal, he had wolf-parkinson syndrome, basically his heart had an extra electrical pulse, very hard to detect with minimal side effects. But once found it's not a big deal to fix and should have no side effects what so ever. Take it from someone from the medical field on this one.
