Would LOVE to see Jamario Moon on the Cavs. It gives them a back up SF and he's a very underrated fella as TMC said.

Moon is underraed and gives defense and allroundness to the Cavs, if heat don't match which they should.

Can say I'm like Heat better than Cavs, but good on the Cavs for improving their team even more

Money and the economic situation seems to be a huge thing right now and no owner seems to want to spend much right now. Sessions should be a starter on a team, but not sure which team would take him. Maybe New York or Washington. Got a feeling Dallas will sign him to back up Kidd for a couple of years


I think he'd be a great fit for the Blazers. Of Philly if Andre Miller goes anywhere else.

The Blazers have offered Andre Miller a 3 year contract in what happens to be one of the few deals that really makes sense for all sides involved. Andre is expected to sign soon.

I think it really improves the Blazers, as they go from Blake, who's just adequate, to one of the top PGs available.

i believe that the addition of andre miller DOES make them a contender, pending the health of oden. if oden can stay healthy, then i believe they have a legit shot at making the finals. of course the spurs and lakers are still the favorites to be in the WCF, but IMO the blazers are right under them.

Don't know if it was mentioned, but Spurs also signed Theo Ratliff (who is probably on his last one or two seasons).That gives them even more height, depth, athleticism and experience.

Gooden is out thee for sure

I think they're still at that "dangerous playoff team" stage. Basically, a SF away from being a true contender. Now, if they could find a way to add Odom...

I think this could make them a top 4 team.
Yikes, I didn't know Miller has actually played in 530 straight games and has missed 3 games his entire career!
Do they really have the capspace to go after Odom?

Not for the money Odom is looking for, but there's always the chance of a sign-and-trade. Or Odom can sign a backloaded deal, as Portland will have a ton of money available after next season.

I'd put Batum and maybe Webster above Outlaw in their starting five, Quazza. Although I guess that position is still up for grabs.

I'd say Outlaw still has the spot until Webster is healthy again. Batum can go in and out depending on the matchup, as he has a lot better defense than Outlaw.

Yeah, I don't know why everybody is so down on Gooden. Probably due to high expectations he wasn't able to fulfill but, as a role player to provide depth from the bench, I think any team should be happy to sign him.
