The Portland Trail Blazers are rumored to be interested in trading for Philadelphia 76ers small forward Matisse Thybulle. According to 76ers reporters, the Blazers are willing trade for Thybulle straight up to take him off GM Daryl Morey’s hands.
Morey is trying to move Thybulle to create space to make room for Rockets guard Eric Gordon and perhaps make room for free agent PJ Tucker.
The Sixers and Rockets need a third team to make the deal work. The Blazers are interested in the All defensive second team player, who would fit right in with what coach Chauncey Billups is doing and provide another veteran next to Lillard.
The Blazers could send out the non guaranteed contract of Eric Bledsoe in the deal.
