With very little cap room to maneuver, nobody could have expected the flurry of moves the Portland Trail Blazers would make during this free agency period.
Cap-strapped and only holding one late first-round draft pick, most fans expected this to be a quite offseason for the Portland Trail Blazers while many members of last year’s playoff run departed for more money elsewhere.
