Without this year’s draft pick, the Trail Blazers face an uncertain trade deadline
With just under a month to go before the NBA trade deadline, the NBA’s 30 teams are starting to race against the clock and reshuffle the deck before heading out at the end of the season with their best possible rosters .
However, the Portland Trail Blazers 19-18 is one of the league’s anomalies heading into the trade season.
By signing several key players to extensions this offseason, the Blazers don’t have much wiggle room. They also owe the Chicago Bulls their first-round pick, but this offseason is lottery-protected, meaning they can’t trade him.
On the latest episode of The Lowe Post, Zach Lowe and Bobby Marks discuss the current state of affairs for the Blazers.
Marks proposed the idea of trading Hart with the Cleveland Cavaliers for Cedi Osman and Lamar Stevens. The pair were not interested in the deal, but said the trade gives the Blazers another player who can come off the bench and take minutes in a playoff rotation.
The pair also discuss the team’s needs for a backup big man, but offer no potential targets for whom Portland could pursue in a trade.
