According to multiple reports, the Trail Blazers will receive top-10 picks in Jonny Flynn and Hasheem Thabeet, as well as a second round pick this summer.

This move really isn't surprising given Portland looking to go younger and the hope for fans is that the organization can somehow turn Flynn and/or Thabeet into decent players after being busts out of college. You cannot teach size and Thabeet sure brings that along with him, while Flynn has show for brief periods of time that he can be a capable point guard at this level.
Just a few minutes remain before the 2012 trade deadline. Is Portland done dealing, or do they have another trade in the works? Stay tuned...
