A recent report has come out that included an interesting sign-and-trade that featured David Lee and Rudy Fernandez.
The Blazers declined the deal for obvious reasons, but that’s the important part here. Walsh finally showed some life and tried to rob the Blazers. Unfortunately for all of us Knicks fan the Blazers have the best GM in the NBA and would never accept the deal.
The Blazers are not moving Rudy, which is unfortunate because he’d flourish here, but that’s besides the point. The Blazers were willing to part with Travis Outlaw and Steve Blake. Both are average players at their positions and wouldn’t be worth moving Lee for.
Props to Walsh though on not trading Lee for nothing.
