Now that Aldridge has committed to the Spurs, Portland is left with only one returning starter. In the past few weeks, they have lost:
– laMarcus Aldridge left for the Spurs
– Wesley Matthews left for the Mavs
– Aaron Afflalo left for the Knicks
– Robin Lopez left for the Knicks
– Steven Blake was traded to the Nets
– Nicolas Batum was traded to Charlotte
– Thomas Robinson signed with the Nets.
They have added Vonleh, Henderson, Plumlee, Ed Davis, And Farouq Aminu. There will be lots of playing time for CJ, but unfortunately it will be for a fairly weak team. Major rebuilding project in Portland.
