What does it all mean?
There was constant noise around Covington and possible destinations but the return was looked at as less than what the Blazers gave up two years ago (two 1st round picks, Trevor Ariza) — significantly so. Meanwhile, Norman Powell was viewed as a good player on a solid contract that perhaps went out a year or two too many but ultimately there was value in the deal.
So how do those two pieces end up netting the Blazers this return? What happens next? Jump on in and get involved as the guys take a look at every angle of the first big trade before the NBA Trade deadline.
