This is getting out of hand. ------------------------------ "The Wolves and Memphis Grizzlies have a verbal agreement to swap guard Wayne Ellington for forward Dante Cunningham, a source with knowledge of the deal said on Monday. An official announcement should come in the near future after the paperwork is submitted to the NBA." ------------------------------

Nic should demand a trade out of Portland after Nate throws him under the bus again. "Many fans have also championed moving Batum into the starting lineup in place of Matthews, but McMillan seems reluctant to make such a move, implying that fans see Batum's brilliance - the 33-point games and spectacular blocks - but don't see the missed defensive assignments and failed block outs in rebounding. " And apparently, Crawful, Wessy, and Ray don't make mistakes at all.

Petrie might soon be available

In October, Marc Stein reported that POR had interest in bringing Petrie in to fill our GM opening. I'd fully endorse such a move.

Nic says he can play SG

23

"I can definitely play the shooting guard position on a permanent basis," Batum told CSNNW.com. "I’ve learned a lot from Brandon (Roy) and if he did play his last game as a Blazer, he has taught me so much on how to play the position that I’m ready to take on that role if Coach Nate sees it fit." .... "Watching Roy over the years, I saw how calm he was in pivotal moments and for the most part, he always came through," Batum said. "That’s another part of my game I was able to develop thanks to Roy and he was and always will be someone I’ll look up to."

Hahn: Blazers Discussed Bringing Former GM Kevin Pritchard Back?

92
Alan Hahn of Newsday, writing about the candidates to head up basketball operations for the New York Knicks, reports that the Portland Trail Blazers may have taken a second look at former GM Kevin Pritchard... ------------------------ "Of the above candidates, the Knicks can't contact Pritchard until July 1, when his contract with the Trail Blazers expires. They fired him last year (in a stunning draft-night announcement) with one season left on his deal. Pritchard, however, might not be an option for long. Coincidentally, two weeks ago, the Blazers fired Pritchard's replacement, Rich Cho, and an NBA source said Trail Blazers owner Paul Allen 's staff recently discussed bringing Pritchard back.

Pistons beat writer says POR wants in on the huge DEN-NJ-DET deal

25

"Hearing the #Blazers want in on this Melo deal, they like D Harris, presumably a lot more than the #Nuggets...seems complicated #Pistons." This, after Marc Stein said here that the other teams had failed in trying to rope the Blazers in.

Spears: New Jersey Nets Want Andre Miller?

155
Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports writes... ------------------- The New Jersey Nets are hoping to sell Carmelo Anthony on their future by also acquiring point guard Andre Miller, one of his former teammates. The Nets have continued talks with the Portland Trail Blazers and Denver Nuggets about the possibility of adding Miller in a multiteam trade that would land them Anthony, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. ... Under one scenario, New Jersey would send point guard Devin Harris to the Blazers. The roadblock is that the Nuggets also covet the Blazers’ Nicolas Batum, and Portland officials have shown no interest in trading their versatile young forward. Other players and draft picks could also be involved. ------------------- Ed: bumped to front page

Smith: Greg Oden & Joel Przybilla "Ran At Almost Full Speed" Following Shootaround

141
Brian T. Smith writes on SLTrib.com... --------------------- Oden (left knee) and Przybilla (right knee) are recovering from major surgery and are not active for tonight's preseason game against Utah. However, the duo ran at almost full speed while catching length-of-the-court passes for layups, and appeared to leap with almost full agility as they caught passes off the backboard that were soon dunked. Przybilla looked the strongest and appeared leaner than last season. Oden ran with a slight limp, but moved up and down the court well. --------------------- Bumped to front page.

Newsday: Latest on Rudy

1

Some interesting quotes here: link "Pritchard and Walsh spoke in June, before the NBA Draft, about a swap of two second round picks for Fernandez, but Pritchard declined. There were rumors that Walsh offered Wilson Chander for Fernandez, but now we're hearing that Chandler wasn't offered. What's more accurate is that Chandler was mentioned as a player the Knicks believed they could move to get a first round pick if they wanted to." "Here's the catch: word is, via backchannels, that the Blazers want a high first round pick, meaning they don't want one that is lottery protected. That's an extremely high price to demand for a player whom everyone knows at this point is quite unhappy in Portland and clearly wants out. Here's the catch, however: don't expect the Knicks to raise their offer. Two seconds, take it or leave it." "...Multiple sources tell me he hasn't talked to the Knicks. The most logical reason, as we've been told, is that the Blazers have little reason to send Fernandez where he wants to go, which is to New York, and will instead solicit better offers elsewhere."

Kurt Thomas to POR?

39

"ESPN.com has learned that Thomas, the 37-year old backup center/forward for the Milwaukee Bucks, has emerged as a fallback trade option for the few playoff-bound teams (including Portland, Dallas and Cleveland) open to the idea of taking on additional salary. "I have heard Portland," Thomas acknowledged in the visiting locker room after the Milwakee Bucks defeated the New York Knicks 114-107 Friday night at Madison Square Garden. "It's always a good feeling when you're hearing teams are interested in you." Milwaukee is believed to be seeking little more than a second-round pick for Thomas and/or Francisco Elson, two of the three expendable big men clogging the end of their bench (the third, Dan Gadzuric, is virtually untradeable with his $6.8 million contract for this season, plus an additional year at $7.4 million). Thomas has an expiring $3.6 million contract, and Elson has an expiring $1.7 million deal. "

Holy Crap! Collison will most definitely step in, but those are some mighty big shoes to fill. Certainly increases our playoff chances. Edit: Here's where it happened: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hcJqhtyb9xk
