    "We talked about taking the team in different directions and Rasheed wanted to play somewhere else next year, and we (took) all those factors into account," Allen said in a news conference at halftime of Portland's game against Utah on Tuesday. "We got three great guys and two guys who have been all-stars, so given those parametres I think we came out in a pretty great place." </div>
