The Portland Trail Blazers are acquiring Boston Celtics center Enes Kanter in a three-way deal that also includes the Memphis Grizzlies, sources tell ESPN.  The Blazers are listed with 40-1 odds of winning the 2021 NBA Championship

From Rotoworld:

"Portland will send Mario Hezonja to Memphis, and the Celtics will get a future first-round pick from the Grizzlies in exchange for Desmond Bane. Kanter will help backup Jusuf Nurkic in Portland, but while Nurk is healthy, Kanter won't get the playing time he needs to make an impact in fantasy hoops. This trade also essentially guarantees that Hassan Whiteside will not be on the Trail Blazers roster this upcoming season."

Further from ESPN:

"Kanter's $5 million salary slides into Portland's $7 million trade exception and allows the Blazers again pair Jusuf Nurkic with Kanter, a model that helped lead Portland to the Western Conference finals."

NBA Betting May 7, 2021 – Los Angeles Lakers at Portland Trail Blazers

The Los Angeles Lakers and Portland Trail Blazers will both be playing after the regular season concludes. We just don’t know if they’ll be in the top-six or in the play-in tournament. LA and Portland are two of three teams vying for the final two playoff spots with the club missing out being relegated to the play-in.

If the Dallas Mavericks are relegated to the play-in tournament they can lay the blame on one of the worst teams in the Western Conference. The Mavs enter their contest with the Brooklyn Nets having won seven of their last 10 games with the three defeats all coming at the hands of the Sacramento Kings.

The new play-in format has the Toronto Raptors in line to potentially compete for a spot in the postseason. That’s good news for a club that has plodded along for most of the campaign. While there are some who detest the play-in the Raps certainly aren’t one of them. They enter the week 2.5 games out of the 10th spot and continue a difficult stretch of games against Western Conference foes with Tuesday’s matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers

The Los Angeles Lakers are in a freefall that even their two best players have been unable to get them out of. We all thought they would return to their early season ways once Anthony Davis and LeBron James returned, but that hasn’t happened.

If the Denver Nuggets didn’t have to play Golden State they’d be in a much better position right now. Despite the loss of Jamal Murray, the Nugs are on a roll having won four straight and eight of their last nine games. Their only loss during that span was to the Dubs and a setback to the same club preceded the current run.
