Vonleh was the No. 9 pick in the 2014 draft but has never become a difference-maker in his four National Basketball Association seasons, the first of which was spent in Charlotte before playing for Portland the last three.
By shedding Vonleh's $3.5 million salary, the Blazers, who were roughly $3 million over the tax line, will avoid the tax for at least one more season.
According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Trail Blazers have sent power forward Noah Vonleh and cash to the Chicago Bulls for the rights to forward Milovan Raković in what is considered a cost cutting move. Vonleh is averaging 3.6 points and 5.1 rebounds in 14.4 minutes across 30 games this season.
Wojnarowski noted the Trail Blazers are now under the luxury-tax threshold and received a $3.5 million traded player exception as well. They have plenty of cap space, so the Bulls had no problem taking a flyer on a young player for a few months. He's played in 33 games this season with 12 starts, which is down from his previous two seasons in Portland after spending his rookie year in Charlotte. Portland has a lot of questionable contracts on their payroll - Meyers Leonard, Maurice Harkless, and Evan Turner in particular- so they chose to move their easiest contract to a team that had the flexibility to take it on. He was originally drafted by the Dallas Mavericks with the last pick of the 2007 NBA Draft.
