Taken from ESPN: Buyers or Sellers: Portland Trail Blazers Highkin: Sellers, although they don't have a lot to offer. Every indication is that GM Neil Olshey knows the Blazers aren't a playoff team and should be positioning themselves for the draft lottery. I don't think they're quite ready to move LaMarcus Aldridge yet (although I wouldn't completely rule it out), but J.J. Hickson and Wesley Matthews are both very much in play. Hopkins: Buyers. Can Portland build a team around LaMarcus Aldridge, Damian Lillard and Wesley Matthews? Sure, if the NBA played 3-on-3. But Portland's supporting cast needs some work. These are minor tweaks, but every little bit helps to stay relevant in the Western Conference. Schmidt: Sellers. Portland shouldn't let this season's modest success ruin a good plan. Bring in as much young talent as possible and sort it out later. Damian Lillard's terrific rookie season should serve as a daily reminder of the fruits the high lottery can bring. Portland wouldn't be foolish to sell high on the likes of J.J. Hickson and Wes Matthews. Soriano: Sellers. It'd be a mistake for the Blazers to try to bolster their roster this year under the illusion that a bottom seed in the playoffs is better than a lottery pick. Even if it means trading Aldridge, they're better off trying to get high draft picks that they can build around to make a run in the next few years. Windhorst: Sellers. But not big time. The Blazers are on the fringe of the playoffs and I'm sure there will be a temptation to add a piece to help out. But they are developing some young players and have cap flexibility coming up they may not want to sacrifice to sneak into the last playoff spot.
