Buried in an AP report on the Blazers' midseason outlook is this intriguing item: "While the players get a break, the rumor mill is grinding away. The Knicks were purportedly interested in (Theo) Ratliff, while Travis Outlaw may or may not wind up in New Jersey." Outlaw, a 21-year-old forward drafted right out of high school, is one of an abundance of big men on the Blazers roster. The 6'-9" Mississippi native is averaging 5.0 points and 2.4 rebounds and earns about $1 million this year.
