Former vice president of basketball operations of the Blazers and current ESPN NBA analyst Tom Penn joined host John Canzano on The Bald Faced Truth Wednesday to talk about the NBA draft deadline and how the cap and financial constraints make it challenging for teams to make trades.

Penn talked about the Trail Blazers going in to the trade deadline. “Bigs are hard to come by and all Portland has right now are some hurt bigs that are going to get better. I think they probably ride out the bumps and bruises and get their guys healthy.”

Penn talked about the Blazers as a team.  “You’ve got on paper nice talent, contracts that make sense and you’ve got a lot of pieces that are tradeable, portable and people playing up to their potential.”
