In a move that most expected today the Portland Trailblazers have traded Gerald "Crash" Wallace to the New Jersey Nets for Mehmet Okur, Shawne Williams and a first-round pick.

Wallace will be an unrestricted free agent if he opts out of his player option of $11.4 million for next season.

It was the end of the line last night when the Blazers suffered the fifth most-lopsided defeat (42 points) in franchise history to the New York Knicks.

We've also been hearing according to multiple reports, the Portland Trail Blazers, Minnesota Timberwolves and Los Angeles Lakers are involved in 3-team trade talks that could send Blazers guard Jamal Crawford to Minnesota, Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley to Los Angeles, and Lakers guard Steve Blake to Portland.

New Jersey is 4 games out of the final playoff spot, so this deal for them looks like there trying to make a late push by acquiring Wallace.

We will update this thread with any/all Portland Trailblazers trade chat or actual trades taking place today here.
