Hate me if you want

Just a thought....... The team needs consistency at the center position without Lamarcus playing it. Thus a trade is in order to make things work. Here is an option viable to all parties.
Trade #1 Cleve. Cavs. get Nicolas Batum, Brandon Roy, Marcus Camby, Armon Johnson, and Andre Miller. Portland getsĀ  J.J. Hickson and both of Clevelands 2011 1st round picks both lottery projected (#1,#8). this give Cleveland 4 starters and Portland it's backup at PF.
Trade #2 Washington Wizards get the #1 draft pick, Rudy Fernandez and Luke Babbitt.
Portland gets Javale Mcgee and the #3 pick.
Trade #3 Phoenix gets Patty Mills and the #8 draft pick.
Portland gets Arron Brooks and the #11 pick
Trade #4 Detroit gets the #3 pick.
Portland gets #7 and #34
This leaves Portland with the #7, #11, #21, #34, and #51 in the draft and these picks should be......
#7 Kemba Walker , #11 Terrence Jones , #21 Nolan Smith, #34 Keith Benson, #52 Demetri McCamey
This gives Portland a starting line-up of (PG) A. Brooks , (SG) W. Matthews, (C) J. Mcgee, (PF) L. Aldridge, (SF) G. Wallace with a bench of K. Walker, E. Williams, J.J. Hickson, G Oden, Terrence Jones, Nolan Smith, Keith Benson, Demetri McCamey.
One player too many but there is always the D-league and future trades...........

  1. First off, Javale Mcgee is a punk, I wouldn't cheer for him even if he was a Blazer. The team we have now, is really good team. We just aren't quite playing to our potential yet.
    This years draft is also very weak, it would definitely be on the lucky side if we got anyone of value from the draft this year. Batum I would say is better than any player coming out in the draft, and still has so much more to improve on. And don't forget, we will have Greg coming back next season, when he is healthy he is a top five center in the league, much better than Mcgee.

  2. i question whether that would work under the league's trade guidelines, but beyond that there's another issue: are all the teams involved interested in participating in such a trade? very unlikely. of course, any trade would have to take place after the season is over since the trade deadline has passed. i think we need to worry more about the playoff run and the playoffs themselves before we start talking about making an off-season trade. this is premature, imo.

  3. I agree this is premature but we should get what we can as soon as we can... for instance it's been 2 years and Nicolas has just got his 1st 20pt 10reb game and he is totally inconsistent. if he just got 15 and 8 every game we would win 90+% of all games, but he only gets about 8pts and 6rebs this is not nearly enough production to justify a starting position. Not to mention B. Roy coming off the bench with only a small contribution. I just want to win not remain over the salary cap with mediocrity and hit and miss. I'm tired of one and done and that was close. Javale Mcgee might be a punk but Greg is a nearly was with only I'm not sure how I'm feeling on my rehab mentality and J. Mcgee would be a great trading chip in the D. Howard lottery.

  4. I've gotta agree with Kass on this one cause what if Cleveland doesn't want to trade their third best player? Then what would we do?
