NBA Trade Deadline Angst Sparks Trail Blazers Podcasters

Dave and Dia can’t keep it together through trade talk, but you’ll enjoy the argument.

NBA: Phoenix Suns at Portland Trail Blazers Jaime Valdez-USA TODAY Sports

Portland Trail Blazers podcasts are a dime a dozen, but on today’s episode of Dave and Dia, it’s more like a billion to one. Can the Blazers pull off the perfect move at the NBA Trade Deadline? Co-hosts Dave Deckard and Dia Miller aren’t even sure what that is, exactly. In fact Dia openly wonders if there’s anything the Blazers can do to make a difference right now. They talk Aaron Gordon, Nikola Vucevic, Kyle Anderson, the value of Derrick Jones, Jr. and more. Then the two witty personalities get into a fight before agreeing to disagree. The trade deadline will shake up even the best of besties like that.

Beyond that, the dynamic duo welcome the return of CJ McCollum, but also wonder if this is negatively impacting Gary Trent, Jr. They bemoan Portland’s lack of defense and LeBron James’ ankle injury, then debate how both factors will influence the Western Conference Playoffs race.

Who would you trade, why would you trade, and will you have any friends left after you trade? Chime in with the Dave and Dia podcast and hold on tight as we see what moves the Blazers make at the deadline.
