the Blazers have explored the possibility of trading Gomes since acquiring him last Thursday. Portland will continue talks today. the Blazers will now look to Cunningham as a player who can lock down an opponent's top shooting guard and small forward. The Blazers are targeting two positions during free agency. A sign and trade or a multi-player package deal remain options. But it is more likely Portland will acquire 1-2 players with its MLE and/or trade exception.
