Woj: Portland will try to move up

In the wake of the NBA Draft Lottery giving the No. 1 pick to the Washington Wizards, Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted the following nugget about the Blazers:

Houston and Portland are two teams that will be working No. 3 Nets and No. 4 Wolves hard to move up in the draft, league sources say.

It’s an odd range to target, to be sure, as the players expected to go 3-4 are power forwards Derrick Favors and DeMarcus Cousins. We’ll have to think on this to see what Portland could possibly offer — likely a combination of future salary relief and Bayless and Rudy, to start — but the main perimeter player that could go as high as three is Wesley Johnson of Syracuse. The other possibility could be future big-man insurance with Cole Aldrich or Greg Monroe, but that seems like a stretch.
