One national writer indicates that the Portland Trail Blazers could be headed for a quiet 2013 trade deadline.

Steve Dykes-US PRESSWIRE

Marc Stein of ESPN.com reports that the Portland Trail Blazers could be headed towards a quiet trade deadline.

Don't look for them to make a trade to try to add a piece that helps out with any sort of second-half playoff run. New Blazers GM Neil Olshey has made that pretty clear.

Indications are that finding another quality guard to join Rookie of the Year favorite Damian Lillard in the Blazers' backcourt is a big-picture priority, but it's not a necessity. Not now.
