Latest Trade Rumor: The Trailblazers & Jerryd Bayless

Written By Chris C-Ford ---- Monday, June 22, 2009

Chad Ford (scroll down) from ESPN puts out a rumor about the Trailblazers being interested in the #5 pick. This #5 pick is really heating up. The Blazers may be eying Rubio at the fifth pick.
France's Nicolas Batum, Jerryd Bayless, and Travis Outlaw are names that Ford throws out.
Bayless could be promising as he was the Summer League MVP last year, and could fit in better than a rookie in the current draft. Batum, who I've never heard of, was a non-scoring starter for the playoff Blazers, and is 6'8". Outlaw was a solid bench guy at over 12 points per game.
I'm not sure that the Wizards will pull the strings on one of these players as 2 of these guys are only 1 year deep in the league. Outlaw could maybe be a good sub for Jamison, but the Wizards really need a power forward.
