What do yall see pritchard doing this year? I read an article after the Blazers got kicked out of the playoffs that Roy suggested they need more toughness on the inside but a lot of people have been saying this year they need 1 more swingman weapon. Thoughts?
I actually think they have a good team and just need to mature a little more
That's what I honestly think but you know how the what-have-you-done-for-me-lately mentality in this country is...
I believe i read in the Oregonian, and on Hoopshype, that they are looking at possibly dealing Frye and Rodriguez. There were speculations they would look for a vet PG like Andre Miller, and then a tougher PF that has post presence unlike Frye. As far as the draft goes, i see Pritchard trading away most of the picks since the roster is already stocked and they have two good players overseas in Joel Freeland and Petteri Koponen.
i can see outlaw and rodriguez being traded. With Webster back and fernandez and batum (assumingly) improving from their rookie season they can afford to loose outlaw (who they probably won't beable to resign at season's end). This assures Bayless back-up duties and they can bring in somebody who can score inside off the bench. with the 24th, 32 and 38(?) they can draft some guys to bring depth at the wing and inside. Maybe a guy like Paul Millsap for Outlaw, Rodriguez and even Frye?...just some thoughts
Give Batum time. He will be something very special.
