Trail Blazers make moves ahead of trade deadline

The Portland Trail Blazers have been active since Wednesday night.

First, just minutes before the team was set to tip off against the Warriors, Josh Hart was pulled off the floor and informed that he had been traded to the New York Knicks in exchange for Cam Reddish, Ryan Arcidiacono, Svi Mykhailiuk, and a protected 2023 first round pick. If the Knicks fail to reach the playoffs, the pick becomes four second-round picks.

Svi Mykhailiuk isn’t sticking around, however. He is being routed to Charlotte in a three-way deal that sends Jalen McDaniels to Philadelphia and standout defender Matisse Thybulle to Portland.

The Blazers ended up making one more move later on before the deadline.  They traded Gary Payton II back to the Warriors in exchange for 5 2nd round picks.  In all the Blazers made some small moves and here is all of them:

Blazers players going out:

Josh Hart

Gary Payton 2

Blazers Acquired:

Matisse Thybulle
