2009 NBA Trade Deadline Recap

The 2009 NBA Season’s second half has started and another Trade Deadline has cruised on by.  How about a recap

This season’s deadline turned out to be pretty uneventful from a star standpoint, but a ton of low-end role players were delivered around in bunches.  Teams were dumping salaries left and right in these unstable economic times while also looking to free up space for this offseason and of course, continue to position themselves for the 2010 free agent market of dreams.

About This Blog

This Portland Trail Blazers blog definitely isn't your basic "recap/report the news" kind of blog. We tend to lean a little to the sporadic and unsystematic side of this young and sexy basketball team. Oh, and you'll definitely see a lot of Blazer Dancer action around here, so bring your bucket of ice.
