    Portland has a pair of 1st round drafts. Maybe they can enter into a trade deal with spurs. This will give a chance for the spurs to draft a big man for its interior. By the way, tonight they play each other for the penultimate game of the spurs. With Aldridge not playing, the spurs are favored to win. Go Spurs!
