Maybe Portland Won't Poach Augustin After All

New, comments

No less an authority than the New York Times reports Portland might be moving all the way up to #6:

According to executives with two teams, the Knicks are discussing a swap of first-round picks with Portland. The Knicks would send the No. 6 pick, forward David Lee and another player to the Trail Blazers for the 13th and 27th picks and a player, possibly Steve Blake or Jarrett Jack. (Portland is acquiring the 27th pick from New Orleans.)

While I am 100% on board to think happy thoughts with regard to Jerryd Bayless, I'm also a realist. Anything that keeps Kevin Pritchard's grubby hands off D.J. Augustin is a positive.
