Both Felton and Beasley have expiring contracts, and let’s face it—both don’t fit with their current team. The Lakers have a hefty trade exception from when they dealt Lamar Odom. It’s still speculation, but L.A. is likely to upgrade (at least at point guard) before the trade deadline. From Roland Lazenby: “I hear they want both Felton and Beasley. That’s their goal. But talk is cheap right now. The source is good tho. [...] Even if gained with the trade exception, Felton raises a whole new round of possibilities+questions for the Lakers, ones they’ve pondered.”

Since the days of Bill Walton it seems like the Portland Trail Blazers have been cursed by injuries to their stars. Either injuries or bad apples in the locker room. The latest blow to the Blazers has been Greg Oden's latest setback trying to recover from knee surgery, which will probably end his Blazers career and put his NBA career in serious jeopardy.
There was once a time...
The Blazers forward gets thumbs ups from his Twitter followers.
Brandon Roy is retired and Greg Oden just underwent another microfracture surgery. That leaves LaMarcus Aldridge as the only member of what was supposed to be the Blazers' Big Three.
The absence of such All-Star perennials as Tim Duncan and Pau Gasol clears the way for a new group.
The 18-16 Blazers are currently 8th in the Western Conference -- the exact same record they had at this point last season.
LaMarcus Aldridge believes he would have been the odd man out in Portland had Brandon Roy's knees held up and Greg Oden remained healthy.
The 7-foot-1 center will be signed Monday, but first the team must waive a player off current roster. Blazers withholding the decision until Monday out of respect for LaMarcus Aldridge's All-Star appearance
In the premiere episode of Sports Guy Kyle, Kyle Hubler talks about why Elliot Williams should have a bigger role on the Trail Blazers.
