The Portland Trail Blazers and Brooklyn Nets have executed a trade.

Plumlee is a 25-year-old, 6'10" center with 2 years in the league under his belt. He averaged 21.3 minutes per game last season for the Nets, scoring 8.7 points with 6.2 rebounds on 57.3% shooting.

Connaughton is a 6'5, 215 lb 22-year-old shooting guard, a 4-year senior from Notre Dame. He played 35.6 minutes per game for the Fighting Irish in his senior year, shooting 53.7% from the field and 42.3% from the three-point arc. The Nets drafted him 41st overall in the draft.

Hollis-Jefferson's abilities are detailed in this post and this post. The Arizona Wildcats small forward is widely considered one of the best defensive prospects in this year's draft class but his jump shot is not NBA-ready. The Blazers drafted him 23rd tonight.

Blake just completed his 12th NBA season, averaging 4.3 points and 3.6 assists in 18.9 minutes per game for the Blazers.
