Blazers Stand Pat At 2014 NBA Trade Deadline

The Portland Trail Blazers did not make a move at the 2014 NBA Trade Deadline.


The 2014 NBA Trade Deadline has officially passed and the Portland Trail Blazers did not make a move. A rundown of league-wide activity is right here.

That lack of movement concludes the quietest trade activity period in recent memory for the Blazers, who sit in the West's No. 5 seed with a 36-18 record. GM Neil Olshey opted not to make any moves despite recent injuries to LaMarcus Aldridge (expected back next week), Joel Freeland (out 4-to-8 weeks) and Meyers Leonard (out 2-to-3 weeks) and a 5-9 record over the last month.

The quiet deadline wasn't all that surprising. Blazers owner Paul Allen told reporters not to expect any blockbusters and coach Terry Stotts said recently that he "didn't anticipate" any roster moves coming. There wasn't even a Blazers player involved in regular rumors over the last few weeks.

Portland exits the trade deadline with its full 15-man roster intact.

Should the Blazers have made a move? Were they right to stand pat? Vote in the poll and weigh in down below in the comments.
