The Portland Trail Blazers became an NBA team in 1970. Since then, they have compiled an overall record of 2,163-1,873 and won one NBA championship in 1977.

Portland has been a pretty solid team through the years, although there was a time in the mid-2000s when they struggled and failed to make the playoffs for quite some time.

Regardless, it’s noticeable that the Blazers have been frequent buyers and sellers during the trade deadline in pursuit of either fortifying the team for the playoffs or just accumulating assets for the future.
