First off, check out our interview with Yamhill HighFlyers GM Eric Bailey. It was supposed to be published earlier, but I guess the scheduler feature on blogger took the day off.
As you have heard by now, Pritchard couldn't even wait until draft day to start his deal-making. Portland traded their 24th, 56th, and next year's second round pick to leap frog Sacramento and nab the 22nd pick.
Why? BlazersEdge has thoughts, all of which are reasonable. The fan in me can't help but hope this is but a small step towards a massive brilliant move that will result in basketball perfection in Rip City. Everyone buckled in? Draft day baby!
