not sure why either side does that? minny gets a lot better, blazers benefit is marginal to being worse

We will have to see a trade, or two, or three, this year at the deadline or after the season, unless we magiacally win the title and cannot break up the team for sentiment.

it seems to me we might as well just get used to this starting 5 for at least the next 3-4 seasons, for better or worse

For the same reasons big free agents rarely leave their teams, the extra year and and extra money on the contracts. Plus, it's not like MEM sucks either.

Someone explain to me why so many think there is some great thing coming in 2015? Are people assuming the Blazers won't re-sign their starters, cause they will and it will take most of our cap space.

what is your point? do you see the team as not re-signing LA, Rolo, Wes- which will take up pretty much all our cap space? all everyone said this year was that we cant trade

Man he would be great off our bench! I know he's pricey but he does what only Mo and Dame on our team do with success: drive to the hoop

agreed, but I think part of what makes Rolo/LA work is Rolo's BBIQ combined with his defensive ability and willingness to mix it up. This frees up LA.

OMG. I think we better hope we dont see much TROB/Kaman in the game, that doesnt strike me as a winning combo for more than about 4 times up the court.

Absolutely not a factor IMO. There is nothing about MLs game to indicate he will bring much to the table, nor see any playing time next year. Maybe 2015 if they dont bring

Kaman and Aldridge, hmm, I guess I dont see Kaman boxing out and as agressive as Rolo so that concerns me from a rebounding stance. but then, he's the back up so hopefully

Agreed. Plenty of fouls now to use down low. Course now we have what, 4 centers on the roster and a 6'11'' LA as well. Are we the tallest team in the league?

I've said this before and I'll say it again, IMO, if the deal for Monroe was/is on the table and it's for Wes + pick a bench guy, then that deal should be done already

age and durability, lack of real defense, etc. Not horrible, but I think the thing that has everyone riled up is the amount of $$. We all must have really underestimated the market

Fair enough, but given the challenges facing this team in the West, would you not agree that this increment is a very small one? I mean, I dont think Kaman takes us from possible 1st round win
