The Portland Trail Blazers have just acquired swing-man Gerald Wallace from the Charlotte Bobcats.
Portland is in the thick of the playoff race, just a game behind New Orleans for the five seed in the Western conference.
Without an All-Star this year, and two-time All-Star Brandon Roy out since Dec. 15 with injuries to both knees, Portland hopes that the addition of Wallace will keep them in the thick of the playoff race.
But can he coexist with Brandon Roy?
Both players are slashers who can hit the outside shot.
However, Roy is more of a distributor than Wallace, and his offensive approach could change depending on how his knees hold up.
Roy returned to the line-up last night against the Lakers, scoring five points in 16 minutes of play.
With injuries hampering center Marcus Camby, LaMarcus Aldridge could see increased minutes at the 5.
That could leave Wallace to play power forward with Nicolas Batum, Roy and Andre Miller rounding out a small line-up.
The addition of Wallace allows either he or small forward Nicolas Batum to pick up the other team's top perimeter scorer.
This will allow Roy to save his legs for the offensive side of the ball.
The Portland franchise has had a litany of knee injuries in its history.
Roy is just the latest following center Greg Oden, and even coach Nate McMillan. After having knee trouble in college at Washington, those problems finally caught up to Roy this season.
It's possible they won't have to coexist. In that case, Wallace will simply be a replacement for a player whose career could be significantly slowed due to injury.
