Has Portland decided to move on without Koponen?

Hippo let us know that some of Koponen's people were saying The Finnagler will be in the NBA next season, Trailblazers or not.

Today ESPN's Chris Sheridan reported some rumors that "not" may be more likely. If Portland's attempt to nab Brendan Haywood is any indication, they aren't placing a ton of value on Koponen's rights these days:
"Portland is the team out there seeking a big man, but they are not offering a lot. I am told the best offer they make for Brendan Haywood was Steve Blake and the rights to Petteri Koponen. I'm sure they could get Diop for less, but he is owed nearly $21 milion over the next three years, so I don't see Portland or anyone else having much interest."
Obviously that happened before Haywood was included in Washington's deal to the Mavericks. That is a pretty weak offer on Portland's end, to the point where it looks like they weren't really serious. I'm not sure any NBA team would give up a solid defensive center for Steve Blake's expiring contract and the un-NBA tested Koponen. Still, if there is truth the rumor, it could mean Portland has decided Petteri's greatest value will be realized in a trade as opposed to in their uniform. If that's the case this blog may just explode.

It is useful to try everything in practise anyway and I like that here it's always possible to find something new. :)

OK, exactly what is going on with the spam comments that don't even link anywhere? This is how a person goes crazy.
