Upgrade? I wouldn't be surprised if Dallas isn't calling up pitching an Antawn for Sheed trade daily because the upgrade would be on their end. Jamison is another undersized inside player with pourous D who (IMO) would be a horrible compliment to Zach. Like Zach, he works the offensive boards and uses quick moves to get the shot up before the D recovers but has trouble getting his shot off against longer opponents in post ups. His outside shot is not a strength.Originally posted by <b>NateBishop3</b>!
I don't think he (Jamison) would be THAT much of an upgrade over sheed. Really, I think it's time to rebuild for the future, or, if you're afraid of that word, retool for the future.
You are 100 % right, if Portland makes this kind of trade they will not make the playoffs for 5 years at least. They are better letting Wallace leave for nothing than taking on a player like Van Horn or Jamison.Originally posted by <b>Minstrel</b>!
In virtually every way, Portland loses. Hearing that the New York rumours were done, because this rumour is in vogue, does nothing to make me feel better. It's a terrible deal for Portland and perfect for Dallas is every way possible.
If these are the caliber of trades that will be available, I just pray the trading deadline passes without Wallace being dealt. Portland will be better off letting Wallace leave for nothing than taking on these salary albatrosses being offered to them.
