iggy to portland?
Iggy is quitely on the trading block, blazers are one more top player way from contending for a top 2 or 3 seed in west. So Iggy\future 1st to blazers for Oden,Martell Webster & Rudy Fernandez
sounds good but with Pryzbillia uncertain he'd re-sign that'd leave them with a whole but a Miller,Roy,Iggy,Aldridge,Camby line up isnt bad but Rudy Martell and Greg are key role players
I like Roy and Iggy together at the 2/3...I doubt the Blazers give up Oden...maybe Joel and the other 2 but Sixers would not give future 1st and give J.Smith instead...another big body that can shoot...and Sixers get a pick or two late in draft to find hidden talent ala Portland...these two teams are very alike to me and would not be suprised if this were to happen...also dont count out Roy for Iggy straight up...Iggy palys two and three and would allow Blazers to keep the cheaper Rudy and Martel and picks.J.Smith and Joel get traded either way...Roy is star and leader( in many ways )but is injury prone and early in new contract...Sixers need a star 2 guard and have a history of taking on players injury prone or past their primes...not saying Roy is ...but keep an eye out this summer....
Iggy/Smith for Martel/Bayless/Joel/Late 1st round Pick
I like the original trade minus the future first rounder. The sixers don't have that bright of an immediate future with the Brand contract weighing down their options so that draft pick may be pretty high. I think if the sixers included Lou Williams and the Blazers included either Batum or Bayless the deal would make sense. Lou could be a solid sixth man for them. A core of Thaddeus, Jrue, Speights, Oden, Fernandez, Bayless or Batum and this years high draft pick is a start in the right direction although they might struggle in the immediate future ala the Thunder two years ago. Hopefully they can turn the expiring contracts of Sammy and Willie into something good as well.
