    Portland will send Joel Przybilla and a 2nd round draft pick to Charlotte for Gerald Wallace, source says.

    not bad... but damn this just makes it harder for the Rockets now to compete with Portland.

    Ken Berger has picks right going to Charlotte for Wallace. I can't read a text message: Two future first-rounders for Wallace.

    I hate Portland. They always chase same players as we do..

    And then they copy us - play hard as hell every night like we used to last year.

    Miller/Matthews/Batum/Aldridge/Camby
    Mills/Roy/Fernandez/Wallace

    Nice depth.. but way too many players @2 and @3 unless Wallace plays @4.

    they would if they still had a healthy brandon roy. now that team would compete for the west.

    but now, they're a "little" better. they still need a legit playmaker on the perimeter.

    Unless they play Wallace at PF (and he gets hurt there), and moving Aldridge to C, players are going to grumble about minutes.

    Batum and Matthews have been playing 35-45 mins every night. Roy is limited to 15mpg. Wallace can play spot PF mins.

    It makes sense to me.

    :confused: :confused: I don't get it, the guy got traded for nothing, why didn't morey make a move..? we could have gave them far better offer..!! he basically got traded for below average center.

    Damn. Imagine if Roy and Oden were healthy.

    Miller
    Roy
    Wallace
    Aldridge
    Oden

    That lineup would have everything you need to win a championship.

    They got two first round picks. Low first round picks, but still two picks.
