PORTLAND, Ore. – It looks like the Portland Trail Blazers are embracing re-building for next year.

The Blazers have sent starters Normal Powell and Robert Covington to the Los Angeles Clippers for Eric Bledsoe, Justise Winslow, Keon Johnson and a 2nd round draft pick.

“The Trail Blazers would like to thank Norman Powell and Robert Covington for the many contributions they made on the floor and in this community,” said Interim General Manager Joe Cronin. “Norman Powell scored 1,206 points in 67 games with us with a beautiful blend of explosiveness and efficiency. Robert Covington’s unique talents shined with his impressive mix of 214 3-pointers, 175 steals and 147 blocks in 118 games. We wish both guys the very best moving forward.” 

The move comes before the NBA’s trade deadline next Thursday.
