    Jan 19, 2012, 4:47 PM EDT

    Ray Felton

    From Hoopsworld’s Lang Greene: At the end of this season the Blazers will once again have to make a major decision regarding their backcourt, as Felton is in the last year of his current deal and is set to become a free agent. Felton readily lets it be known if the decision were up to…

    The Portland Trail Blazers are not willing to give up on Greg Oden quite yet. The team offered the oft-injured center a one-year, $8.8 million qualifying offer for next season, reports Marc Spears of Yahoo, on twitter.

  4. Expect Roy to be back with Blazers. Playing all 82… we’ll see

    Jun 2, 2011, 8:29 PM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    Chad Buchanan got thrust into the Portland general managers job without much if any warning. Without much time to plan or think about it. Rich Cho was unexpectedly out, he was in. But this is his time of year, he’s a scout so the draft is his thing. He’s in his comfort zone with that,…

    Rich Cho

    In a move that came as a surprise around the NBA, general manager Rich Cho was released after one season, the team announced Monday.

  6. NBA Playoffs: Brandon Roy and the Rose Garden Time Machine

    Apr 23, 2011, 8:28 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Portland Trail Blazers - Game Four

    Portland 84 Dallas 82. You could not have written it better. Well, maybe if it was Game 7. But then it would be in Dallas and that’s a whole different result. In sports, a lot of us have become repulsed by cliches, by ridiculous preconceived storylines forced down our throats. But there is still something…

  8. Lakers privately admit they’d like to avoid Portland, Memphis

    Mar 31, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

    Gasol_brothers

    Don’t be shocked if there is an upset in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs. The top four teams — the Spurs, Lakers, Mavericks and Thunder — are all a notch above the teams below them. But the teams below them are hot. They each create some matchup problems and have been exploiting…

  9. Struggling Heat find better offense but forget to play defense, lose again

    Mar 9, 2011, 12:18 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Miami Heat

    Since roughly last July, Heat fans have been asking — for the last week begging — to get LeBron James and Dwyane Wade active in the offense at the same time. They needed that long-promised spark. Tuesday night — in a game were the Heat clearly were gripping at times and playing their stars big…

  10. Marcus Camby to “contemplate retirement” if traded

    Feb 20, 2011, 6:44 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Because the basketball fates have made them their whipping boy, the Portland Trailblazers are considering wholesale team changes. At the same time, virtually every team could use a big, shot blocking center in the paint who can also grab some boards and knock down the midrange. So there is interest out there in the Blazers’…

  11. LaMarcus Aldridge’s X-rays, MRI negative, just a hip bruise

    Jan 25, 2011, 9:48 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks

    UPDATE 9:48 pm: The results of LaMarcus Aldridge‘s MRI are in and it was negative, too. This is just a hip bruise. I can say “just,” those things hurt. But in the world of Trail Blazers injuries, that isn’t one. Not really. Good news that Aldridge will keep going and will not miss time. 1:43…

  12. Second MRI review shows Marcus Camby with meniscus tear, surgery next

    Jan 19, 2011, 12:27 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns, Game 5

    When the official report came back on Marcus Camby’s MRI saying it was clean, we told you that the Blazers were wary and wanted their own team doctor to take a look at the films. Turns out, with good reason. A second review revealed partial medial meniscus tear in Camby’s left knee, and he will…

  13. Shocking: Blazers get good injury news. Marcus Camby’s MRI negative. But hold on…

    Jan 18, 2011, 3:33 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Things you thought you’d never see have come to pass — good injury-related news for the Trail Blazers. What’s next? Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes! The dead rising from the grave! Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria! Marcus Camby…

  14. Brandon Roy to have arthroscopic surgery on both knees

    Jan 13, 2011, 4:46 PM EDT

    Brandon Roy

  15. Carmelo Anthony trade delay holding up other deals

    Jan 11, 2011, 8:38 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    There are 15 players — and maybe more — who would be changing teams if the proposed Carmelo Anthony trade moves out of its current state of limbo and becomes reality. That’s a lot of players, and the Anthony trade has become a dam, holding up a number of other smaller trades, according to multiple…

  16. Brandon Roy considers knee operation, chance to be next Tommy John

    Jan 3, 2011, 5:32 PM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    It’s called the Tommy John surgery because the long-time pitcher was the first to have a ligament from somewhere else in his body put in his elbow then return to be a quality major league starting pitcher. How about the Brandon Roy surgery? According to the Portland Tribune (via CBS Facts & Rumors), Roy is…

  17. We sure hope the Blazers have hit rock bottom

    Dec 4, 2010, 12:05 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Portland Trail Blazers

    You know, when you think about it “Hey, it could always be worse” is kind of a cruel thing to say to someone.  Because if things go badly enough to justify you saying that to them? They likely haven’t just started going bad, or had one bad thing happen. Most bad things tend to happen…

  18. Blazers president Miller plans to give Oden $8.8 million qualifying offer this off-season

    Nov 18, 2010, 7:33 PM EDT

    greg_oden

    Blazers president Larry Miller is going to have to make some tough decisions regarding perennially injured center Greg Oden’s future over the next couple of years. On the one hand, it can’t be fun to devote resources to a player when you don’t know when he’ll actually be playing NBA basketball, let alone if he’ll…

  19. Marcus Camby would give Greg Oden some advice, if he was around at all

    Sep 19, 2010, 10:58 AM EDT

    Marcus Camby is the starting center for the Portland Trail Blazers. He’s a veteran who was once underrated, then overrated, and then swung back around to underrated. He was a huge part of the Blazers ability to stay in the playoffs despite the massive number of injuries they sustained. He brought physical play and awareness…

  20. The new Portland GM doesn't seem like the hesitant type

    Jul 31, 2010, 9:32 PM EDT

    New Portland GM Rich Cho is settling in nicely. He’s got himself a plan, a philosophy, and even a restaurant with the kinds of options he wants!

  21. Blazers will be wheeling and dealing. Again.

    Jun 2, 2010, 10:22 AM EDT

    Kevin Pritchard has made a draft-related trade every season he’s been with the Blazers.  He’s out there like picks are pogs, and he’s got his eye on that nice slammer your team has. So it should come as no surprise that once again, Pritchard is on the hunt. From the Oregonian. “We’re having discussions,” Pritchard…
