Looks like we have another draft night trade. The Portland Trail Blazers will send their 23rd overall selection Ronade Hollis-Jefferson along with veteran Steve Blake to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for Mason Plumlee and Pat Connaughton, the 41st selection in this years draft. Adrian Wojnarowski first reported.

This is another sign pointing that the Trail Blazers are ready to move on from LaMarcus Aldridge as he is set to hit the free agent market next week. Plumlee gives them a younger and more athletic power forward that will run the court nicely with Damian Lillard. For Brooklyn, Hollis-Jefferson is a very nice wing player that can definitley help out on the defensive side.
