Tokito: Standing Pat May be Blazers Best Move

Tokito: Standing Pat May be Blazers Best Move

Mike Tokito of Forbes makes the case that Portland may be best served by running their core back next season. NBA free agency is about to get underway and the Trail Blazers don’t have a ton of flexibility to make a splashy move. But Mike Tokito of Forbes tells us that while they may not be able to pull off a splashy move, that might not be a problem: Of their own free agents, they can bring back Aminu and restricted free agent Jake Layman, but Rodney Hood, Enes Kanter and Seth Curry could get more lucrative offers that Portland cannot match.
