Okay this one just popped through my mind as I was reading that the Blazers are looking for and athletic forward... Obviously with Batum's and now Outlaw's injuries they've become suddently thin on the wing. Not to mention that they lost a lot of defense from this position... So here it is...
What would you guys think of tading back BRush to Portland in exchange of Jerryd Bayless?
Both players are in the same type of position in terms of not really fitting with the system, lack of trust from the coach, trying to find their way... I think BRush would be perfect for Portland as a replacement for Battum. Of course you have to consider that Nic will be back eventually but BRush could thrive in such a position, just needing to focus on defense and feeling no pressure to establish himself as a primary option on offense. And well basically I don't think Jerryd could do worse than Rush right now and with his confidence would love to play for Jim. At this time we still don't defend and even worse we struggle to score, so Bayless would be a big bonus anyway.
I know some people will scream on this one but I find it interesting to consider and may spark an entertaining debate
