Portland Trail Blazers Stand Pat, Make No Picks in 2014 NBA Draft

For the first time in 16 years, the Blazers did not have any draft transactions.

With no rumors in the days preceding the draft, expectations were low for Portland Trail Blazers activity. And indeed, the Blazers stood pat throughout the 2014 NBA Draft.

This is only the second time in franchise history that Blazers made no picks in a draft, joining 1998.

Activity will likely pick up for the Blazers' fans soon, as free agency opens at 9pm PDT on June 30th, with teams being allowed to have contract discussions with free agents. Blazer's Edge will have full coverage of free agency.
