    I don't think Batum will be traded - oh how I'd love to be wrong on that though. It would be really good to have the right to match an offer versus have to extend one.
    To be honest, I was almost certain that they'd trade him before the deadline, following the non-extension episode. By not extending him, they knew some teams would overpay him and they could/would not match the offers, which would basically mean he would leave for nothing.

    But now that he's starting at the 2, and pretty well, the situation is different : it's not Wallace OR Batum, but it can be both. I see this as a 50/50 : trading him before the deadline to get something if they don't plan to put some money on him, or overpay him (and look a bit stupid if it goes higher than what he wanted before the extension deadline).

    You guys think the blazers make a move for a big with oden out for the year? i know the news is shocking to everyone, but clearly they can't bank on him and i read rumors of the blazers cutting him outright.

    amir/ed for batum maybe?
    Batum has been playing good ball as of late, so I'm not sure how much they'd want to get rid of him. I'm sure Amir would interest them, but they'd want something more than just Amir - maybe a swap of Calderon and Felton, maybe we add in someone like Kleiza and Gray and they add in Oden. Oden+Batum+Felton for Amir+Calderon+Gray+future 1st (top-10 protected)?

    I'm so in for that. If Oden finally get's healthy, we'll have two top Centers. Considering how rare they are in the league, 95% of the teams will be knocking at our door, offering great players. That's a big if, but what is the risk ? Calderon is not part of the future, Gray is expendable and one of Amir or ED has to leave.

    And we already have tons of youngsters, so a 2013 pick is fine for me.

    I don't expect anything major. Barbosa and Bayless seem likely contenders for trades given they are almost certain to be gone after the season. Colangelo has already traded Calderon once, so I doubt he'd hesitate to do so again though I don't know if Calderon fetches you anything you really need long term.

    I just think that with the state of the NBA right now (handful of contenders, 15 rebuilding teams) it's hard to do deals for vets except to the contenders and the return from those teams is unlikely to be that great. I think in the offseason better deals are there as more teams are in play.

    The only major move would be Bargs but he's injured, he's their best player, you need a big return on him and he's not a proven playoff guy. Can't see getting value for him at this point.

    Morris still has a LOT to learn in terms of being a true point guard. You say low risk, high reward - Morris at best could be a solid bench/rotational player. This team needs a guy on the court who will be a calming
