The site crafted this trade scenario between the Blazers and Detroit Pistons.
Portland Trail Blazers receive: Jerami Grant
Detroit Pistons receive: Eric Bledsoe, Keon Johnson and No. 7 pick
Bledsoe would cover the salary that Grant would be owed, while Johnson, a 2021 first-round pick acquired in the trade for Norman Powell and Robert Covington, and the No. 7 overall pick in next month’s draft would go to Detroit.
It’s hard to see Detroit decline a trade that would net them essentially two first-round picks for an expiring contract.
However, Portland must decide how valuable that No. 7 overall pick is. Bleacher Report says that the price of the the pick shouldn’t be too much to break the deal, but there is a lot of value in a top-10 pick. The last time the team drafted in the top 10, the pick was Damian Lillard.
Determining the value of this pick will define the Blazers draft and offseason.
