Blazers traded Turner to Hawks for Bazemore

The Portland Trail Blazers are dealing swingman Evan Turner to the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for guard Kent Bazemore. The Blazers are adding some depth at the guard spot. The Portland Trail Blazers have agreed to ship veteran forward Evan Turner to the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for guard Kent Bazemore. The move came out of nowhere and is by no means a blockbuster, but it's still worth taking a look at what the deal means for each team. The Trail Blazers' decision to drop $70 million on Evan Turner during the summer of 2016 never panned out the way they had hoped, even if he did have one heroic performance in Game 7 of their second-round series win over the Denver Nuggets this season. In any case, they've now moved on, swapping him, ironically enough, for another player who signed a bloated contract that summer. In Bazemore, they'll get more of a true wing or shooting guard, which may be important depending on what happens this summer.
