The Portland Trail Blazers are still a top luxury tax team despite making a pair of moves at the NBA Trade Deadline. New figures from ESPN’s NBA salary cap guru Bobby Marks report that the Blazers are ranked No. 4 in teams headed into the luxury tax.

Portland made some minor adjustments to their roster running up to the trade deadline, swapping Nik Stauskas, Wade Baldwin IV, and two second-round picks for Rodney Hood. Additionally, they traded Caleb Swanigan to the Sacramento Kings for Skal Labissiere. The tax figure could still increase as the Blazers have an open roster spot.

Currently, the Blazers sit at fourth in the Western Conference, with a 33-21 record.
