Jesse Reed

The Portland Trail Blazers have reportedly sent Kent Bazemore to the Sacramento Kings in a trade, per Shams Charania of The Athletic.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski confirmed the trade shortly afterward, adding that the Blazers are also sending Anthony Tolliver and a couple of second-round picks in exchange for Trevor Ariza, Wendell Gabriel and Caleb Swaniger.

Bazemore is a 30-year-old veteran in his ninth year as a pro, and he’s been a solid bench player for Portland this season. Averaging just under 26 minutes of playing time per contest, he’s putting up 7.9 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game.
