The Blazers remain interested in Haywood, since they've been relying on soon-to-be 37-year-old Juwan Howard at center in recent weeks. They reportedly declined a deal for Haywood that would've cost them Rudy Fernandez and Nicolas Batum. I know the Wizards asked for a lot there, but I wouldn't close the books on discussions about Haywood or Fernandez. Fernandez has been unhappy with his role in Portland, according to a league source.
— Michael Lee with some trade talk. He also discusses the Tracy McGrady rumors. Personally, I'd be overjoyed if the Wizards swapped Haywood for Fernandez and Steve Blake/Travis Outlaw's expiring contract. They'd probably have to throw in another contract - maybe Dante Cunningham? Either way, I'd be overjoyed with that return.
