    0920-rudy-fernandez-300

    Over the weekend we told you about Real Madrid’s effort to entice Rudy Fernandez to come play in Spain. Which was a pretty smart move by the team, to try and lure him over during the lockout and be able to keep him in his native Spain, a place he said he wanted to return…

    Former GM Kevin Pritchard went on John Canzano’s radio show in Portland to talk about his time and experience with the Blazers before he was (randomly) fired, and his thoughts on the league going forward.

    Portland Trail Blazers guard Matthews celebrates three-point shot against Dallas Mavericks in Portland

    The Oregonian’s Joel Freeman has some surprising news on the health of Blazers guard Wesley Matthews: When Wesley Matthews collapsed to the floor during a fluke post-practice accident in January, he hobbled into the trainer’s room in noticeable pain but was seemingly fine. He started at shooting guard the next night, scoring 26 points in a victory…

    greg_oden

    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. Oden can sign the offer (and well may), but just by offering it the Blazers reserve the right…

    Jun 23, 2011, 1:31 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 6

    In what would be an interesting swap of styles and systems, the Orlando Magic and Portland Trail Blazers are talking about swapping point guards. That according to Jonathan Givony at DraftExpress, on twitter. Hearing Portland and Orlando are talking about swapping Andre Miller and Jameer Nelson, with the #21 pick going to Orlando. Orlando has…

  8. Report: Tony Parker to the Trail Blazers was discussed

    Jun 23, 2011, 2:14 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    While the Spurs deny it, comments from other teams make it look like Tony Parker is being shopped around like he is on QVC. How serious those talks are is the question. In the case of a Hoopsworld report, things got very close with the Portland Trail Blazers. The San Antonio Spurs and Portland Trail…

  9. Former No. 1 pick LaRue Martin talks bust, bouncing back

    Jun 20, 2011, 9:35 PM EST

    LaRue Martin

    Over the next few days there will be a lot of talk about the biggest draft busts ever (great list here from Hoopism). It’s a fun exercise, for reasons I’ve never fully understood we as a species enjoy watching others struggle and fail. The latest NBA finals seems even more proof of that. Being the…

  10. Ford: Blazers looking to move up to draft a point guard

    Jun 17, 2011, 6:09 PM EST

    Via the good folks at Blazer’s Edge, here’s a tidbit from ESPN.com’s Chad Ford (insider required) on how the Blazers may be looking to trade up in the draft to find a point guard: Finally, the Blazers have been aggressive, according to a number of GMs. They are out there looking for a starting point…

    Jun 16, 2011, 6:43 PM EST

    MILLER_ANDRE

    The Oregonian’s Mike Tokito had this interesting tidbit about Andre Miller after attending press conference with interim Blazers GM Chad Buchanan: Buchanan was non-committal about the Blazers’ team option on point guard Andre Miller. The Blazers hold a $7.8 million option for Miller for next season, but have yet to exercise it. The 35-year old…

  12. Oden will get contract, but may not play until January

    Jun 16, 2011, 12:49 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Portland Trail Blazers

    It sounds more and more like the Portland Trail Blazers may offer an $8.8 million qualifying offer to Greg Oden so they can keep him. Yes, the Greg Oden who has flashed talent but played in only one quarter of the team’s games the past four seasons due to some serious knee issues. (Possibly, the…

  13. Former Blazers GM Cho takes same job with Bobcats

    Jun 14, 2011, 1:51 AM EST

    Rich Cho

    Very smart hire by the Charlotte Bobcats. Rich Cho — who the Blazers surprisingly let go last month because of “chemistry issues” with owner Paul Allen (which seems to happen to a lot of GMs) — has been hired by the Charlotte Bobcats as GM, the team announced late Monday night (via IamaGM.com). It was…

    Jun 13, 2011, 7:28 PM EST

    ODEN_GREG

    Sixers Happy Family Time

  16. Report: Blazers want to trade up in draft for Kemba Walker

    Jun 3, 2011, 10:19 AM EST

    NCAA Men's Championship Game - Butler v UConn

    Portland needs to tweak its roster. There are good players — LaMarcus Aldridge, Gerald Wallace — but the backcourt can no longer count on Brandon Roy to lead every night. The Blazers are looking to make a tweak in the draft by getting Connecticut point guard Kemba Walker, who led his team to the national…

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

    Jun 2, 2011, 8:29 PM EST

    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,…

  18. Rick Adelman wouldn’t mind being Trail Blazers GM

    May 30, 2011, 11:06 AM EST

    Houston Rockets v Boston Celtics

    Apparently, Rick Adelman has no interest in long-term job security. We told you before that long time coach Rick Adelman has interest in moving into a front office job. On Sunday he expressed interest specifically in doing that for Portland, a team that has fired two respected general managers in 10 months. That is what…

  19. Report: Blazers may push Brandon Roy to retire

    May 27, 2011, 10:19 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Portland Trail Blazers - Game Four

    Brandon Roy should have sat out all of this season to rest his tired knees. Just like he should not have pushed himself so hard the previous season to come back from surgery for the playoffs. But that is not how Roy is wired, he is as fierce a competitor as the NBA has right…

  20. Report: Blazers considering Danny Ferry as new GM

    May 25, 2011, 1:29 PM EST

    danny-ferry-apjpg-93fe194051c36202_large

    Don’t expect the Portland Trail Blazers to move fast — they said they were going to take their time finding a new GM to replace Rich Cho — but apparently they have one name on their list already. Danny Ferry, the former Cleveland Cavaliers general manager who before and after that has worked with the…

  21. Blazers defend firing of GM Cho, say it was chemistry

    May 24, 2011, 8:26 AM EST

    Rich Cho

    For the second time in a year, the Portland Trail Blazers have fired a general manager. For the second time in a year it’s because of a personality clash with the owner Paul Allen and upper management. Because newly fired Rich Cho had a good reputation around the league — he had been the No.…

  22. Blazers surprisingly release GM Rich Cho after one year

    May 23, 2011, 4:26 PM EST

    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. College scouting director Chad Buchanan will take over as the interim GM. “The fit between Rich and our team simply wasn’t right,” said Trail Blazers President Larry Miller said in a…

  23. Nate McMillian thinks Portland’s roster could use some changes

    May 17, 2011, 5:32 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    The Portland Trail Blazers have been in “stockpile assets” mode for a couple of years now. They have managed to accumulate a lot of fine players, and haven’t really made a disastrous move. More importantly, they somehow managed to field a playoff team with two guys who should be their franchise players almost completely hobbled…

  24. Brandon Roy wants to be a starter again for Portland

    May 2, 2011, 10:19 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Portland Trail Blazers - Game Four

    There is no “Sixth Man of the Playoffs” award, but if there were Brandon Roy would be the frontrunner. He was a game changer for the Trail Blazers off the pine, especially in Game 4 when he had a quarter for the ages that pulled his struggling team up and evened the series (even if…

  25. NBA Playoffs: Portland’s passion no match for Dallas execution

    Apr 29, 2011, 3:37 AM EST

    Trail Blazers Wallace celebrates against Mavericks during NBA playoff game in Portland, Oregon.

    Like Brandon Roy before him, Portland’s Gerald Wallace gave it everything he could on Thursday night. There was the 9-0 run by himself at the start, the playing through back pain, the great fourth quarter effort that culminated in 32 points (on 17 shots). But as it has been for most of this series, even…
