According to ESPN's Chad Ford, The Portland Trail Blazers have acquired the 22nd overall pick in tomorrow's NBA Draft in exchange for the Blazers' 24th, 56th, and the worst of their second round picks in 2010.

Moving up two spots isn't that big of a move, and it leave's Blazers fans wondering just what Kevin Pritchard is up to.

My best guess is that this pick will be used as a piece of another trade that could see the Blazers moving even higher up in draft.

Blazer's Edge has the Blazers potentially pulling off a draft-and-trade of Omri Casspi on behalf of another team late in the first round.

Another scenario purports that Pritchard made the trade to move one spot ahead of Sacramento, who may be picking a point guard that the Blazers have interest in.

I am excited to see what happens tomorrow. I've been trying not to guess too much as to what the Trail Blazers might do. The bottom line is that I have faith in Kevin Pritchard and I know that Portland is going to be just fine next year—no matter what happens.
