Here’s a quick update on the Ryan Gomes story talked about yesterday. Minutes ago, from the twitter of The Columbian’s Brian T. Smith:
#Blazers releasing Gomes is not a done deal. Team is considering trade offers, with talks ongoing.
Re-stating what Coup noted yesterday, it would be silly for Portland to not explore the possibility of trading Gomes. At the very least you have to see if that trade asset can net something. As Coup stated yesterday, Gomes’ contract has incredible value for not only those trying to shave cap space now, but also for teams who may have luxury tax issues. Either way it’s a formality that Ryan Gomes won’t be a Blazer for long.
