Trade Rumor - Sergio Rodriguez to New York Knicks on Draft Night

We're not getting a lot of info or confirmation on this situation but it appears that Sergio Rodriguez will be dealt to the Knicks on draft night.  The rest of the details have yet to be released but the Knicks definitely have the 8th overall pick which could bring the Blazers a young point guard.  (Steph Curry, Brandon Jennings, Johnny Flynn and Ty Lawson to name a few.)

I'm still standing by the thought that the last thing the Blazers need is another young "prospect."  The team is good enough to make a deep run next year with the addition of a veteran.  Bayless is years away from making a difference and drafting another rookie point guard will not help his situation or the rest of the team's.

This is easily one of the weakest drafts in NBA history, so why worry about making a significant move in it?

**UPDATE**

Sergio has been traded to the Sacramento Kings!

To be honest I really want to get someone like Nate Robertson so I wouldn't mind trading Blake aswell, we all know Blake is a good point guard just not a starting point guard. Plus Nate has played with Roy before and I'm sure it'll be a good trade.

I love Nate offensively as a scorer, but I'm not sure he is capable of running a team as a true PG. Who knows though, maybe the Blazers could use another scoring guard instead of relying on Roy as the only back court option.

Thanks for the tip. Alan Hahn of Newsday, who is occasionally correct, looked into the rumor and wrote that there is nothing to it. However, it is curious that this rumor is out on the heels of the rumor that Nate Robinson expects to leave New York and wants in with his buddy Roy in Portland. So maybe something is happening between us. You allowed us to dump Stevie Franchise and we took ZBo off your hands. So we're friends aren't we? Something must be cooking.

Anyway, thanks for the info. I am adding your link to our(knicksFanatics.wordpress.com) rival sites. Maybe we'll have something to discuss this summer. If not I look forward to seeing your guys this upcoming fall.

First time I've heard "friends" when talking about the Knicks and Blazers in the same breath but I kinda like it.

About This Blog

This Portland Trail Blazers blog definitely isn't your basic "recap/report the news" kind of blog. We tend to lean a little to the sporadic and unsystematic side of this young and sexy basketball team. Oh, and you'll definitely see a lot of Blazer Dancer action around here, so bring your bucket of ice.
