Blazers send Vonleh to Bulls for Rakovic

Game On!

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The Portland Trail Blazers traded forward Noah Vonleh to the Chicago Bulls in exchange for Milovan Rakovic.
    
Vonleh, the No. 9 overall pick by Charlotte in the 2014 NBA draft, averaged 3.6 points and 5.1 rebounds in 33 games this season, including 12 starts. For his career, Vonleh has averaged 3.9 points and 4.5 rebounds.
    
Vonleh, 22 will be a restricted free agent this summer. The move helps Portland get under the luxury tax threshold.
    
Rakovic, 32, currently plays in the Swiss Basketball League. He was originally drafted by Dallas in the 2007 draft, but has never played in the NBA.

The Blazers officially announced the trade just after 3 p.m., about 3 hours after the NBA trade deadline passed.
