PostSubject: What would you do with Brandon Roy if you were Portland?   Fri Dec 17, 2010 10:11 pm

Brandon Dawayne (most gangsta middle name of all-time btw) Roy. For the past couple of years, he's been considered to be one of the top young players in the NBA. And there's no disputing that - for his whole career, he's pretty much been a consistent 20-5-5 guy. Not only that, but he's emerged as a top defender and one of the NBA's best clutch shooters. There really isn't much to dislike about Brandon Roy.

Until recently. I'm sure all of you have heard his recent comments about playing with Andre Miller, stating
Quote :
“This is not going to work, so you should trade one of us. Whether it’s him or whether it’s me, somebody needs to be traded because this is not going to work.”
. For me, this is nothing new because my team was in this situation with the Monta Ellis/Stephen Curry backcourt issue awhile ago. But Portland fans really deserve the best - the Blazers are the only major sports team in Oregon and the Blazers easily have one of the best young cores in the NBA, probably behind only the Thunder's core of Durant, Green, and Westbrook. But that's not the point. The point is, Brandon Roy wants out of Portland and the longer Portland waits, the less offers they will receive (his stock is falling - and fast). So what should they do?

Trade Idea number 1:

Portland Receives:
SG Monta Ellis
SG Charlie Bell
PF/C Louis Amundson

Golden State Receives:
SG Brandon Roy
C Joel Pryzbilla

Why Portland does this: Monta Ellis is one of the rare players in the NBA who has almost just as much potential as Brandon Roy. But we all know potential can go a loooong way. Aside from that, the Blazers are in desperate need of someone who can score, and while Monta's numbers are inflated by Golden State's up-tempo system, there's no denying that the man can put the ball in the bucket. Charlie Bell is a no-name who sucks more dick than Lindsey Lohan, but his expiring contract gives the Blazers cap flexibility that they can use to re-sign their key players when they become free agents. Lastly, Louis Amundson is one of the highest energy players off the bench in the NBA, and with an often depleted roster, the Blazers could really use some much needed energy off the bench.

Why Golden State does this: A Brandon Roy/Stephen Curry backcourt would be just as productive on offense as the Monta/Curry backcourt that we have now, but with Brandon Roy's size and defense he also fills up the holes that the current backcourt has created. If everything, and I mean everything, goes right, this backcourt could carry a team to the playoffs and maybe even further. The Warriors are also in desperate need of someone who can make a goddamn MOTHERFUCKING CLUTCH SHOT, and Roy is one of the best at it. Pryzbilla has an ugly contract, but he provides depth to a much-needed position for the Warriors: the Center. Also, I wouldn't have to put up with Biedrins' free throws as much anymore.

Verdict: This trade will never ever go down, but if it did, I think it's a fair trade for both sides.

Trade Idea number 2:

Portland Receives:

SF Andre Iguodala
C Spencer Hawes
PG Jrue Holiday
2012 1st Round Pick

Philadelphia Receives:
SG Brandon Roy
C Greg Oden

Why Portland does this: Portland has a glaring need for a SF with size. Wes Mathews, to me, is more of a SG and Nick Batum isn't NBA starter material. Iguodala also improves their defense and elevates them to the next level. With a lineup of Miller, Mathews, Iguodala, Aldridge, and Pryzbilla (ugh), the Blazers would instantly become one of the best defensive teams in the NBA. Spencer Hawes is a B level prospect who could become a 15/8 guy in the NBA some day, and centers that can shoot like him are rare to find. He would provide a spark off the bench. Lastly, Jrue Holiday is a guy who could eventually become a 20 PPG/9 APG player in the NBA and could let old man Andre Miller rest a bit.

Why Philadelphia does this: Philly is in need of scoring and a competent NBA center. After losing Dalembert via trade Spencer Hawes has logged most of the minutes at C...and, well, you can imagine how that's worked out. Doug Collins is a guy who could work with Oden and help him become the best player he can be, and Roy would provide scoring and leadership skills that are missing in Philadelphia right now.

Verdict: I don't see this specific trade happening, but I could realistically see a scenario where a variation of this trade happens, seeing that both Iguodala and now Roy are on the trading block.

Trade Idea number 3:

Portland Receives:

SG/SF Stephen Jackson
PF Eduardo Najera
PG Sherron Collins
2011 1st Round Pick

Charlotte Receives:
SG Brandon Roy
PG Elliott Williams
PF Dante Cunningham
PG Anthony Johnson

Why Portland does this: Once again, Portland needs size at the small forward position. Stephen Jackson is one of the best defenders at his position in the league, and he provides veteran leadership and championship experience to a team that is missing both. Najera is garbage but he could log some semi-productive minutes behind LaMarcus Aldridge. Sherron Collins is a player who I loved in college and never understood why he hasn't gotten more of an opportunity. With the right amount of mentoring and guidance, I think he could become a pretty productive player. Throw in a 1st round draft pick this year and the Blazers have a nice balance of veteran leadership and young players.

Why Charlotte does this: Jordan wants to completely reshape the roster, and this is the best offer he would receive for Stephen Jackson. Charlotte is also in desperate need of ticket sales, and while Brandon Roy is no LeBron James, he definitely could fill more seats than Jackson could. The Bobcats need scoring badly, and with a backcourt of Roy/Augustin they could have an exciting backcourt for years to come. Williams, Cunningham, and Johnson are nothing but role players, but at this point, Charlotte could use anybody to fix the problems they have over there.

Verdict: This trade favors the Bobcats a little bit, but if the Blazers feel that this is the best offer they could get at this moment, then they might pull the trigger. If not, I could realistically see the Blazers trying to pluck Gerald Wallace from the Bobcats instead of S-Jax.

So there you have it. 3 different trade ideas, 1 young superstar. What would you do if you were Portland?

well there was a report that the bobcats were looking to see what they could get for Jackson and Wallace.

If the bobcats were to give up Jackson for Roy, they would have to include someone else, cuz that would be ripping POR off. Wallace and a bench player for Roy actually seems fair to me. Matthews has been playing weel for POR and would be a good replacment for Roy, and they would have their SF in Wallace. Also Roy just isn't the same player after that knee injury. he's having a pretty bad year, and if POR can get a lot for him, they should pull the trigger.

I wouldn't take Roy.

He's the next Penny Hardaway... In the no longer an All-Star, still can have a big game but not consistently, grumpy, reoccurring injury way.

They should trade Miller instead of Roy

I mean despite this recent behavior why the hell would you want to trade B-ROY! I still think he is one of the best overall wing man in the whole league.

Trade Miller, and let Roy start being the main guy of this team again

He's the main guy of this team CO...that hasn't change since he was drafted by the Blazers.

Aldridge is terrific scorer and overall forward,but he's not the guy that on which the entire offense goes.He scores well

Oden when healthy,is not a scorer.He has been drafted to dominate on defense

I'd give up a future first round pick and Rashard Lewis for Brandon's talents in DC.

Trade him while you still can before it's too late.
Cause later down the road...it'll be much more difficult to trade him.

Roy will not be traded

If Portland is going to keep a guy who can't play more than 60 games a season,they will keep him in there.I think he can still survive and be All-Star type player..This franchise needs a new and fresh start in 2011.

Hopefully,we will get our two franchise players (Oden,Roy) healthy for the next season and just improve.That's it

I wonder,what have the Blazers done wrong to god,for them to injury so bad...

Well first, he should tell Tony to accept my fantasy basketball offer, sending B-Roy to Tony.

Then get injured for the rest of the year

I don't think anyone want's Roy right now.

I think Roy doesn't want himself right now.

He just changed his name to Landon Troy and he's living in my attic till he heals up.

But don't tell anyone.

See how he is next year, then decide if blowing up the team is worth it or not. Blowing up the team basically means goodbye to Aldridge. The team still is pretty good without him.
