mo for jamal still leaves us the same way. because crawford is effective scoring off the bench not that much as a starter. if we move him into the starting 2, foye goes to the bench. foye is highly inconsistent as a bench player. in my eyes it would leave us the same way. however, it could give us the option of trading a tpe to acquire carlos delfino. maybe this offseason we can go after ray allen.

Sideways move...you want to add to not subtract from the offense. Foye + whatever.

Mo not going anywhere for whats currently available to us @ the SG position.

btw Nick Young would welcome a trade out of Washington. Not sure if his contract is up at year's end but Gerald Wallace has publicly made it known if he's healthy at the end of the year he's going to opt out of his contract to secure a long-term deal. Ray Allen may very well end up retiring at the end of the season. Nick Young is a bit of a ball hog but if he's on fire he's lights out and can make anyone look foolish trying to guard him.

Be interesting to see if we do anything before the deadline. Mo is probably the guy that would be moved for any of these guys.

i dont think moving mo is a good idea, unless we can get a good return for him. we need a solid 2 and a guy who can make the 3 consistently. foye is too streaky.

Jamal is a SG while Mo is a small combo guard. That would be a good deal for the Clips in terms of talent exchange and that we have Bledsoe to play backup PG...

Not sure about Crawford staying or playing hard every night. But clearly having Foye as our only true SG isn't going to get it done...

We hooked them up in that Camby trade so they should return the favor.

Get it done Neil!

Need a source, and if this is your own idea please present it as such, not as news.

As for the trade, makes sense to Portland purely on Randy's expiring contract, and for us it's a moderate talent upgrade. Both players are streaky but I prefer Crawford's raw talent and length, though I'm not educated enough on Crawford's defensive ability to know if he's a better defender than Foye. If Foye's a better defender, I'm inclined to keep shopping around, don't think it's a big enough offensive upgrade to risk losing a better defensive player especially considering our recent struggles on team D.

They're not going to send Crawford down here for Foye. What good would that do for Portland? If Foye's involved, it's Foye/Bledsoe. Which I don't think I want to do.

We definitely need to make some type of move. Caron has disappeared and Foye/Mo are terribly streaky, seems like both of them either play well or bad on the same nights. We need consistency from somebody other than Blake/CP3.

Again Foye's only appeal is he's an expiring contract, would only make sense for Portland if they want to get out of the Crawford deal and start shopping elsewhere this summer. Crawford's contract was only for 2 years so it's really not a great salary dump for Portland, depends if Portland wants extra cap room for a big signing this summer rather than wait out Crawford's deal for another year.

Don't see this trade going down, I believe Portland thinks they can get more value from Crawford elsewhere.

Crawford, from what I've read from the Blazers Blogs is opting out next year anyway.

I'd do this trade in a heartbeat but the salaries aren't close enough, Portland must be asking for something else on top of Bledsoe, maybe a 1st rounder.
