Norman Powell (Trail Blazers), Gary Trent Jr. (Raptors) signing after the trade – .


The Raptors and Trail Blazers traded Norman Powell and Gary Trent Jr. just before the trade deadline.

Portland – trying to win quickly – wanted the best, albeit older, Powell. Toronto – happy to take a step back – valued young Trent.

Fittingly, the two are signing again for $ 18 million a year, although Powell will get a much bigger financial commitment from Portland, who also signs Cody Zeller.

Chris Haynes de Yahoo Sports :

Adrian Wojnarowski d’ESPN :

Powell and Trent both come out on top after previous contract decisions.

Powell declined his $ 11,615,328 player option and, as expected, gets a big raise. The real question: Will Powell’s re-signing at Portland impress the dissatisfied Damian Lillard?

Trent rejected an extension for the Trail Blazers before the season, when they could only have offered him up to $ 53.76 million over four years. Not only is Trent now getting over in just three years, he can enter unrestricted free will at the age of 24.

Zeller is a massive defensive upgrade on Enes Kanter at the save center.
