New Trade Rumor

Trade rumor reported by oregonlive.com and others has the Blazers sending Travis Outlaw and Joel Pryzbilla to the Nuggets for Nene.

On one hand, I don't like this deal because of TO's potential and the fact that Joel is a quality NBA center. On the other hand, I think I do like this trade. Nene is young, has a lot of upside (almost as good as TO's and at a position we really need it at) and has established himself as a quality PF/C when he plays. He's a good defender, rebounder and shot blocker. If Pryz is going to walk anyways, then I would pull the trigger on this deal. WE would get Nene, who would then team with Darius and Zach to make up one mean front line. Imagine the rebounding we would have as well with Zach and Nene...

Thoughts?

i dont think they would take sergei cause they have a traffic jam of sub-par 2 guards: greg buckner, julius hodge, dermarr johnson, voshon lenord, and bryon russell. they might take him just for detroit picks

The Detroit pick does not have very much value. Monia and Joel should be enough to get the trade done. Nene will not play again this year, so the trade leaves us with Theo, Ha, and Randolph up front.

yes but this season is screwed anyways so why does that matter? if we have to sign some guy out of the D-league to log minutes at C then that's fine by me.

Keeping Joel should really be our first priority. If we traded him for Nene then we would have 2 injury proned centers.
