ANDhe NBA market closes this Thursday and the first weighty operations have already taken place. CJ McCollum has been traded after spending his nine career seasons with the Blazers. He now play for the Pelicans.

In Portland they choose to rebuild after years of seeking success with the couple formed by the shooting guard and Damian Lillard, while in New Orleans they add an important piece to their project for the future, although this mainly involves the delicate physique of Zion Williamson.

The operation is completed with Larry Nance and Tony Snell accompanying McCollum from the Blazers and with the Pelicans sending Josh Hart, Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Tomas Satoransky and Didi Louzada to Portland and two second rounds and the first of 2022 protected.

Sabonis, to the Kings

In another big deal, the Pacers continue their dismantling and have traded Domantas Sabonis, Jeremy Lamb, Justin Holiday and a 2027 second-round pick to the Kings for Tyrese Hailburton, Buddy Hield and Tristan Thompson.
