NBA Rumors: Trail Blazers not expected to be buyers in free agency

The Portland Trail Blazers may not be in the postseason anymore, as they were bounced by the San Antonio Spurs in rather quick fashion, but that doesn’t mean they’re going anywhere. For a team that has been on the cusp for so long, it appears that the Blazers have finally broken through and are now a legitimate threat in the Western Conference.

It wasn’t an easy road to where the Blazers are now, but while the team could use some tweaks here and there, we shouldn’t expect to see any major changes in the offseason.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise, as the Blazers core seems to be set for years to come and they’re only going to grow more and more as a unit. We could see a veteran shooter added to the bench, but the days of the Blazers offering Roy Hibbert a max contract are over and the changes or additions made will no doubt be minor.
