Pacers sign SF Gerald Green to 3 yr / $10M deal

Signing NBA Journey Man Gerald Green might have been a lateral move in regard to the Blazer's vision going forward, but still I can't help but think that this could have been an affordable stop gap for our potential SF woes.

SLAM Online Q+A: Wes Matthews

SLAM: Is it there a slight level of discomfort right now with not really knowing who your teammates are going to be next season? WM: Well we’ve got six players [under contract], no GM (Since this conversation, Portland has hired Neil Oshley for the role.—Ed.), no coach—you know, I’m hoping we keep our coach right now. I’m hoping we keep Kaleb [Canales]. Two of the players returning are recovering; LA with the surgery and Elliot [Williams] had a separated shoulder. So there’s four of us that are able to play. Kurt [Thomas] is ancient, so he ain’t doing much [laughs].

What The 2012 NBA Finals Have Taught Me

There has be a lot of talk, A LOT, about which players are the most athletic and which players possess the greatest skill sets. While that is fine and dandy it says little about who will actually flourish in Portland. With that being said, in your opinion, which draft prospects are the most coachable and the most team oriented?

Speculation: Blazers trade up to get MKG, let Batum walk, use money to sign BAFA?

How do we bring BIG names to SMALL cities?

There has been ample discussion on how to go about acquiring names like Deron Williams, Dwight Howard, James Harden, and so forth. This old insidehoops thread got me contemplating the reality of the FA Market. (the content of the thread is not worth reading it was just fodder for thought) Aside from $$$, what are some other reasons for a player to uproot from a big market and relocate to the NW long term? What business, endorsement, real estate, lifestyle, etc opportunities are available for them? It made sense for B-Roy and Jamal Crawford as they call this area home. Joel Przybilla also came out of retirement to play for the Blazers after turning down the Heat because he thought Portland was a great place to raise his family. I see a pattern here, but this obviously is not going to attract top stock. Our fans are the best. Why else should FAs come here?

Wes, Batum, T-Rob, LMA would be opportunity for young FA PG

update: good comments, had to edit title 6/9/12 This is a two parter: 1) There has been a lot of hypotheticals surrounding the PGOTF. Many of them revolve around cap space, FAs, and the draft....
