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."So yeah, I can't wait for the trade deadline to come. What is the over/under on how ridiculous these rumors can get? Steve Nash?! I want to join in the fun and spew some random trades that won't happen. Did you hear that the Blazers offered Frye, Raef, and 3 and a half shares of Microsoft for Ricky Rubio and a lifetime supply of sangria? Other sources say Kevin Pritchard is actively involved in talks to move Martell Webster's sneakers. They're as good as new!

More Amare to Portland, this is ridiculous
Of course, one day after saying the Blazers offered some huge deal for Amare, CBS is going to go ahead and report that that will not happen. Duh:
