Portland Trail Blazers receive: Danny Granger, No. 23 pick overall
Indiana Pacers receive: Wesley Matthews, Meyers Leonard, Joel Freeland, No. 39 pick overall, No. 40 pick overall
What do you know? Another blockbuster deal on a wild NBA draft night.
In this deal, Portland gives up three role players and a couple of second-rounders. In return, it gets Danny Granger, who could give the Blazers the go-to scorer they're looking for (if he's healthy). The Blazers also get a first-round pick at No. 23.
Granger has become somewhat expendable to Indiana with the team excelling in his absence. Here, Indiana gets a new starting shooting guard in Wesley Matthews, a young prospect in Meyers Leonard, a potential rotation player in Joel Freeland and a couple of picks later in the draft.
With this pick, Portland selects Dario Saric of Croatia, a 6'10'' combo forward who can put it on the floor and rebound inside. He has substantial upside thanks to his versatility and could give Portland depth up front, which it currently lacks.
Portland is always well-versed when it comes to scouting international prospects. Saric would be a good fit at No. 23.
A lineup of Damian Lillard at the point, Danny Granger playing big at the 2, Nicolas Batum at the 3 and LaMarcus Aldridge at the 4 sounds good to me.
