Trail blazers swap Kent Bazemore for Kings in a five-player swap

Instant Reaction Portland moves Kent Bazemore to Sacramento in five-player deal

Portland will have until June 30 to exercise or decline this option.

Swanigan and Gabriel have seen limited action in the Association this season, as both have spent time with the Kings' G League affiliate in 2019-20.

He has just joined the Portland Trail Blazers for the current season and has an average of 7.9 points, four rebounds, 1.4 assists and one theft per game.

Bazemore, who was thrust into the starting lineup after Rodney Hood sustained a season-ending Achilles injury in December, is averaging 7.9 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.4 assists this season, while shooting just 34.7 percent from the field and 32.7 percent from three-point range. So could his teammate Anthony Tolliver. He will also be a free agent after the season, which could help explain his mindset. He scored an average of 8.9 points with the Detroit Pistons a few seasons ago.


The team has Bogdan Bogdanovic, Nemanja Bjelica, and now Anthony Tolliver as their forwards off the bench. Ariza is in the first season of a two-year, $25-million contract, which includes a partial guarantee for the 2020-21 campaign, according to Spotrac.

Sacramento now has a record of 15-26, making it 14th overall in the Western Conference. They were scheduled for a game on Saturday night against the Jazz in Utah, but Bazemore won't be available right away.

The deal can't be officially completed until January 21 because Gabriel still has a signing restriction, according to ESPN's Bobby Marks.
