The Portland Trail Blazers are very unhappy with Zach Randolph. He was set to be cornerstone of a new era of Blazer basketball, where the only news he would make would be on the court play, not in the court the play. The recent develops stemming from a shooting involving his brother at a nightclub and Randolph's subsequent allegeded obstruction of justice have made the Blazers reconsider their plans.

The Oregonian is reporting that a trade is being negotiated where the Blazers would send Randolph, Derek Anderson and a 2005 draft pick to Milwaukee for Michael Redd, Desmond Mason and Marcus Haislip.

This deal could be perceived as a success for the Blazers even without Randolph's legal problems, as Redd has become one of the league's most highly touted shooting guards. The Blazers would receive a player to finally properly fill the position vacated by Clyde Drexler.

The motivation for the Bucks to complete this deal will be because Redd becomes an unrestricted free-agent at the end of this season and this could be the lone opportunity for Milwaukee to get equal value in return. In Randolph, a restricted free-agent at season's end, they will have the NBA's most promising young power forward. Even though the Bucks have high hopes for Redd, a shooting guard is an infinitely easier position to fill.

I think the Bucks are giving up WAAAAY too much but we'll see....

I wonder if they would keep Shareef in that case. You'd think so.

If the Bucks were to make that trade, they would be the stupidest motherfuckers in the world.

Agreed. I wouldn't make that trade in a million years if I were the Bucks.

Then again, the Bucks historically have been among the stupidest motherfuckers in the world, and if you don't believe me, ask Frosty about who the NBA's dominant team was in the '80s. And back when Vin Baker was a good player, guess who traded him to the Sonics for freakin' Terrell Brandon and Tyrone Hill?

And let's not forget that the Bucks were the same team that traded Dirk Nowitzki and Pat Garrity to the Mavericks for freakin' Robert “Tractor” Traylor. As a point of comparison, in that same draft the Pacers got Al Harrington with the #25 overall pick.

So I think the odds are better than average that the Bucks will shoot themselves in the foot yet again.
