Wouldn't Portland (Oregon) be a nice place for a new expansion team?

Relocate the Devil Rays to Vancouver.

It gives Seattle a rival and it's like 3 times the size of Portland.

The Canucks have proved that they have a loyal fan base, don't judge them on the Grizzlies...Basketball in Canada? No.

However, Portland is always among the league leaders in attenance in the NBA though, so I can't say it would be a bad choice.

Maybe that will help shed some light on the Portland situation. ;-)
