The Blazers have had enough. The housecleaning has begun.

Bonzi Wells has been traded to the Grizzlies. Is it just a matter of time before Rasheed Wallace, Damon Stoudamire, Ruben Patterson, Qyntel Woods and even Zach Randolph are kicked to the curb as well?

After years of suffering through player misbehavior on and off the court, Blazers GM John Nash finally found someone willing to take one of the troublemakers off his hands. The surprise is that it's, of all people, Jerry West and Hubie Brown.
