Camby’s absence forced the Blazers to go with a small starting unit, with LaMarcus Aldridge playing center and Gerald Wallace at power forward. The Blazers’ only other true inside player is rookie Chris Johnson. The team apparently took a step to address that inside shortage, holding a workout involving three post players with NBA experience. They include Robert Swift, who played for Blazers coach Nate McMillan with the Seattle SuperSonics; Earl Barron, who played three seasons for Miami and has also had stints with New York, Phoenix and Milwaukee; and Dwayne Jones, who played for Cleveland, Boston, Charlotte and Phoenix.
The Phoenix Suns today acquired forward Hedo Turkoglu (TURK-oh-lue) from the Toronto Raptors in exchange for guard Leandro Barbosa and forward/center Dwayne Jones, the club has announced. The trade is pending the completion of physicals. “Hedo is a versatile player and somebody who we always thought would fit into our system,” said Suns Head Coach Alvin Gentry. “He is a good ball handler who can create plays for other people and who can play three different positions. He’ll fit well into what we’re trying to do here.”
