The NBA trade deadline is just hours away (Noon on Thursday 2/7), and the Portland Trail Blazers have been linked in trade rumors to a handful of players.
The Ringer says the Blazers have reached out to the Atlanta Hawks about their 25-year-old forward Taurean Prince.
The Ringer also says the Blazers are one of teams showing interest in acquiring Nikola Mirotic from the Pelicans. However, the Spurs, Jazz and Nets are also interested in Mirotic, and he could be just a 30-game rental. The Pels reportedly want a first-round pick in return.
Prince has the ability to shoot the three (37.4% for this season and for his career), and is a solid defender with his 6’7″ frame. He is also on a team-friendly contract, making under $3 Million this season, and under contract for the following two seasons after this year.
So, we ask you, Rip City, who do you want the Blazers to acquire at the Deadline?
