Stauskas played 44 games for Portland during the 2018-19 season. He averaged 6.1 points in 15.3 minutes per game on 41.9% shooting. The Blazers traded him, along with Wade Baldwin III, to the Cleveland Cavaliers in February of 2019, receiving guard Rodney Hood in return.
Vonleh suited up in 185 regular-season games for the Blazers between 2015-2018, averaging 3.9 points and 4.6 rebounds in 15.8 minutes per game during that span. The Blazers remain the only team for which he has played multiple seasons, though technically that will change this year, as he played 21 games for the Bulls during 2017-18. The Blazers acquired Vonleh in the Summer of 2015 in exchange for forward Nicolas Batum. They traded him to Chicago in February of 2018 for the ever-popular Milovan Raković.
