The Poland trade
involving Aldridge, Bayless, and LaFrentz for Amare is dead because apparently Blazer wants Nash rather than Amare.
I just want to know what do you guys think? I think it's stupid that we didn't pull the trigger if the rumor is true.
The deal Portland was discussing with Phoenix involved LaMarcus Aldridge, Jerryd Bayless, and Raef LaFrentz's $12.7 million expiring contract. "That deal is dead," the person familiar with the talks said. One reason could be that Portland is really looking to acquire an elite point guard, according to an NBA team executive. That begs the question of whether Portland G.M. Kevin Pritchard was asking for Steve Nash. But according to another rival executive, the Suns have made it clear that Nash, Grant Hill, and Leandro Barbosa are "untouchable."
