    Ndiaye said Batum has great respect for the Blazers and their fans, but believes playing for Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman and alongside point guard Ricky Rubio and forward Kevin Love was the best situation for him.

    ''It was a very cordial meeting. There were no hard feelings,'' Ndiaye said. ''So Nicolas basically talked about his four years with the Blazers and he expressed that maybe it was time for him to look at a place where it could be more happy.'' - AP



    Let's be honest, Ndiaye has respect for his retirement.  It's the first time I have heard anything positive from Nic's agent about the Blazers.  I don't blame Nic for thinking the grass is greener in Minn, and after his last season being shoved behind an over paid Gerald Wallace.  But let's be real, he's not leaving Portland.  Suck it up, and get ready to prove you're worth your inflated, contract.  A new coach, starter minutes, and a team of younger players that have a real, pre-season to work together, and Nic will be glad he stayed.

    $45 is more palatable than $50 mil, but word is that bonuses (which have yet to be reported) could make it a $50 mil 4 year deal.

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

     

    Thank God they are 19 games over 500.  Mayb...

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
