Why Randy Foye Needs to Be a Blazer

The Blazers need to make a trade that includes on of our PG's for a second lottery pick so that they can select Randy Foye.

Randy Foye is the second coming of Dwayne Wade. He is a tweener who does not let his size stand in his way, is extremely athletic, takes it to the hole, is an excellent leader that guys can rally around, and plays excellent, hard-nosed defense. If a trade were made to clear a gaurd spot and bring in the lottery pick, Foye could serve as the primary backup gaurd (playing both positions) off the bench behind a starting lineup of Jack and Webster, and could ease into the starting rotation if he begins to outplay Jack. This would give the Blazers an upgrade in all facets of the game, although mainly on the defensive and leadership/drive/expierience front, and is something that management should seriously consider.

Foye combined with Morrison would make for one hell of a draft in my book.

I'd like to see us pick up Foye as well, but would hate to see Telfair part ways, if we could pull this off by moving Blake and some others (I'd say only Jarett, Sebastian, Martell, and to a lesser extent Victor should be untouchable... if we knew that we could move 2 particular players fast I'd add Joel to this short list, otherwise I think he's gone anyway).

I like Foye. The Wade comparrison is a little generous. Foye will not be as good as Wade, but I would call him a poor man's Wade. I don't see why we should draft him though. We already have our SG of the future in Martell, and we already have our PG of the future in Telfair/Jack. Where does he fit into our plans? I understand that he could play backup PG and SG, but if he is like Wade he needs to be a starter. Would you choose him over Jack or Webster?
