Kings land Ike Diogu in the 3-team trade involving Bulls and Blazers
 
As part of a three-way trade with Sacramento and Chicago, the Portland Trail Blazers have acquired forward Michael Ruffin from Chicago in exchange for forward Ike Diogu, who is sent to Sacramento, General Manager Kevin Pritchard announced today. The Trail Blazers also gain a $3 million trade exception, which they can use for one calendar year.

This is a smart trade for Portland. They gained a $3M trade exception and went from an $8M hold on Diogu to a $1.5 hold on Ruffin for this summer. This gives us way more flexibility.

Alright!

Last time we got a trade exception we were given James Jones and Rudy Fernandez!

Wow! the Kings get screwed over on every single trade that they make. From Webber to Bibby to Brad Miller! :applause:

I know trade exceptions are great. I'm still trying to figure out what Portland is going to do with it though. What are some possible scenarios? I know Tom Penn and Pritchard are going to try and use it.

Maybe. Not sure how it works. I think Portland is allowed to take in more money or something. We traded too much salary to the Knicks and we were able to spend 3 million to bring in Jones. So I don't think we are going to be able to buy Vince Carter off of New Jersey for 3 million.

I wish I understood the trade exception better. I'm going to go read the CBA.

What I've heard is that Michael Ruffin makes good screens. :roll:
