Default Trade Rumor: Dallas and Portland

I saw this mentioned in the spurs vs. mavs thread and thought it deserved its own thread. I hope this does not offend some nitpickers on the board, but I wanted some comments on what you think. The Oregan Live has posted this article:

Saturday, November 08, 2003

Trade rumor
Have the Blazers found a willing taker for Rasheed Wallace and Bonzi Wells? Noting the sullen mood and empty seats in the Rose Garden this season, Mike Barrett and Mike Rice revealed the Mavericks may have an offer on the table to the Blazers Saturday on the Blazers' pre-game show.

Rice and Barrett reported the Mavericks are willing to send PF/SF Antawn Jamison and SG Michael Finley to Portland in exchange for Wallace and Wells.

The trade appears to work under the collective bargaining agreement. However, Finley and Jamison both have huge contracts (check their salaries) with several years remaining.

Barrett and Rice noted Dallas is probably one of the few teams willing to take these two on (Wells and Wallace) and give quality in return. Rice indicated he thinks the ball is in the Blazers' court.
As it was mentioned in the game day thread, Sean Elliott reported on NBA TV that the trade will happen. This was found on the spurs board:
Quote:
The ABC affiliate in Dallas reported that reliable sources in Portland are reporting that the trade is going to happen.
Mark Cuban was asked tonight, and denied the rumor.

Portland's Message Board

We would definitely make out well getting Sheed in here. He is a legitimate post up threat, that can play D. He has been drifting out of the paint over the last few years, but I am sure Nellie could get him to play center, AND LIKE IT!

Fin could be on the downside of his career, and Bonzi has some upside left. Our defense would definately improve with Bonzi and Sheed. But our chemistry could take a major hit. This lineup looks awesome though:

Sheed
Dirk
Walker
Bonzi
Nash

I am just the messenger, no flames please.

Thank you Erica, I was wondering why no one was discussing this. Please remove this thread Mods.
