Trail Blazers trade rumors ahead of 2024 NBA trade deadline

  • For all Blazers fans who were desperate for Joe Cronin to make a move. AND for all those Blazers fans who were sick of small backcourts: Welcome Dalano Banton, a 6-foot-9 point guard.
  • The Sacramento Kings keep coming after Jerami Grant but the Blazers keep saying no.
  • The Dallas Mavericks still hold interest in Jerami Grant per Michael Scotto of HoopsHype, but Portland "has implied it'll keep Grant." Scotto adds, "While teams have poked around on Grant, they’ve been met with resistance from the Trail Blazers, who want to keep Grant."
  • Malcolm Brogdon has drawn interest from teams such as the Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks, Philadelphia 76ers and Houston Rockets, but "Portland has resisted moving Brogdon and rival teams are skeptical Portland will part with the veteran guard by Thursday’s deadline," according to Scotto. "Of the teams listed, Philadelphia appears to be the most interested at this point in acquiring Brogdon and the 76ers have the worthwhile draft capital to acquire him if the team wants to make an aggressive offer."
  • The Lakers' interest in Brogdon "appears to have quieted," writes Scotto.
  • The Philadelphia 76ers have inquired about Malcolm Brogdon with less than 24 hours to go until the deadline, per Kyle Neubeck of PHLY.
  • Malcolm Brogdon is and has been involved in the most Blazers-related reports over the last month. He's been linked to what seems like 95 percent of NBA teams at one time or another, including the Orlando Magic, Los Angeles Clippers, Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks, Philadelphia 76ers, Minnesota Timberwolves and Utah Jazz.
  • Jerami Grant is another Portland veteran whose name has been bandied about in recent weeks. He's been linked with teams including the Dallas Mavericks, Sacramento Kings, Golden State Warriors, Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers.
  • Injured center Robert Williams III was linked with the Rockets before Houston acquired another injured center, Steven Adams from the Memphis Grizzlies.
