Steve Blake Possibly on the Move Now?

The move that makes the absolute most sense for the Blazers has always been to get rid of Steve Blake rather than their new and semi-elite point guard, Andre Miller.  For some reason though, the NBA writers of the world deemed it necessary to start the rumor of Dre's signing as something purely for trading power down the road.   Today is "Andre Miller Day!"  Spare me.

Chad Ford dropped some meaningful words today going with Blake as the man on the move...
One reason is that he’s struggled to get the offense going smoothly. This problem is compounded by the fact that Blazers coach Nate McMillan has felt pressure to play Blake because Roy prefers to play with Blake instead of Miller. If Blake were traded, that pressure would disappear.

Two, Blake is easier to move and may have more trade value. While Miller is the more talented player, Blake makes less money and has an expiring contract, while Miller has a fairly expensive three-year deal.
Couldn't agree more CF.  Now pull the trigger KP.

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.
