Portland Trailblazers May Trade their Picks

And although Pritchard’s sprinkled the Blazers with the fountain of youth from Greg Oden to Brandon Roy to LaMarcus Aldridge in the past, this year youth may not be served in Portland.

Instead, Pritchard may look to move the picks.

"To add four players probably isn’t realistic unless a major trade is made. And I’m not so sure getting younger is at the top of our list," Pritchard told HOOPSWORLD recently.

"We look at picks as liquid assets. But since they are liquid, they are very movable. They can be traded; you can take a couple picks and move up or move down. What I look at is it gives me the flexibility to do a lot of things.

"We probably won’t add four players, but it isn’t out of the realm of possibility." [HOOPSWORLD]
