The Portland Trail Blazers are currently 18-11 in the Western Conference. They are being led by their dynamic duo this season but could look to shake things up at the NBA trade deadline. The Sacramento Kings are another team that could be in the market for a deal.

Sacramento is falling behind a bit in the West. They are a rebuilding team with little hopes of competing this season. Throughout the offseason, Buddy Hield found himself in NBA trade rumors but he is still with the Kings. That could change though.

There were some disgruntled feelings around Buddy Hield when he was moved to the bench last season in favor of Bogdan Bogdanovic. This season, Hield is back in the starting lineup and scoring 16 points per game while continuing to be an effective shooter in the league.

Damian Lillard continues to be one of the best point guards in the league. He is scoring 30 points per game to lead the team. CJ McCollum has been the other half of a dynamic duo in Portland.

This season, McCollum is averaging 26.7 points per game while shooting 44.1% from the three-point line. This is a name that has come up in NBA trade rumors in the past but nothing has happened. It will be interesting to see if the Trail Blazers decide to pull off a blockbuster deal and move McCollum at the deadline.

Sacramento would be an intriguing position for McCollum. Here is a potential deal that could happen between the two sides.
