Blazers GM Olshey: We’ll Be Very Proactive
The Portland Trail Blazers may need to pursue other avenues beyond free agency this summer in order to acquire a center that can fill the void at a difference-making level. They are not equipped with a ton of high-figure assets, but they will have the ability to execute a lopsided trade, taking on extra salary than what they sent out.
Teams looking to shed salary will surely touch base with the Trail Blazers inquiring about such.
“We’ll be very proactive this summer,” Olshey said. “What we’ve seen this season is that this team isn’t very far away. We’ll have the flexibility to make a move if we choose to do so or not, but it has to be the right move for the organization.”
