Blazers deal 3 picks to Mavs for #22
The Portland Trail Blazers acquired the 22nd pick in Thursday's NBA draft from the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for the 24th and 56th picks in this year's draft, and worst of their second round picks in 2010.
The trade has been agreed to in principle by the two teams. It should be finalized by the league office later today.
Why would the Blazers move up two spots in the draft? The word around the league was the Kings had zeroed in on Omri Casspi with the 23rd pick. Casspi could be a good pick for the Blazers to either keep or to bring over this year to provide more toughness in the front court.
Another potential target for the Blazers could be Florida's Nick Calathes, Pittsburgh's DeJuan Blair, Georgetown's DeJuan Summers or VCU's Eric Maynor.
For the Mavericks, they pick up a couple of extra picks to move two spots in the draft.

The only draftee worth noting in that list is Eric Maynor.
Blair would be gone by then. Summers does not have much of an upside nor does he look like he is ready for the NBA. Calathes is an interesting prospect but he has already commited to playing in Greece.
