The Trail Blazers are actively shopping Jusuf Nurkic, according to NBA insider Brian Windhorst on The Hoop Collective podcast. After spending seven seasons with the team, the Bosnian center could soon find himself with a new destination as the Blazers initiate a rebuilding phase.
With Damian Lillard expressing his desire to be traded, it comes as no surprise that the organization is exploring options to reshape the roster. As a result, Nurkic, known for his solid performance in the paint, is now being made available on the trading block.
During the 2022-23 season, the 28-year-old Nurkic averaged 13.3 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 2.9 assists in just under 27 minutes per game. His skills and experience could be a valuable addition to other teams looking to bolster their frontcourt presence.
