<div class="quote_poster">Quoting Trip:</div><div class="quote_post">If Stack can fetch that kind of baits, why don't the Wiz just trade him to Blazers on their own. That way they at least get some players in return.</div> It was a hypothetical trade. The reason the Bobcats need to be involved is so the Blazers can ask a favor of the Bobcats taking one of their unprotected players over another. As it is the Blazers are going to have to leave one or two of the five following players unprotected. By agreeing to taking Stackhouse, the Blazers can stipulate to the Bobcats who they can or cannot take in the expansion draft ... Dale Davis, Damon Stoudemire, Derek Anderson, Ruben Patterson, or Dan Dickau The bottomline, the Blazers might be willing to give up 2 draft picks and Woods to keep one of those players from being selected, plus adding Jerry Stackhouse.
