Has the Window for the Blazers to Make a Move Passed?

Tara and Dan fire up the trade machine on this week’s Blazer’s Edge podcast.

NBA: Portland Trail Blazers at Memphis Grizzlies Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

On this week’s episode of the Blazer’s Edge podcast, Tara Bowen-Biggs and Danny Marang try to make sense of the last few weeks, why the Blazers suddenly can’t defend the 3-point line, weird starts and bad endings to games, firing up the trade machine, the turn “against” CJ McCollum.
