The Portland Trail Blazers are trying to improve their roster and bolster the possibility of winning a championship.

According to Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor, the Blazers have already expressed interest in trading for Jrue Holiday, who is on the Pelicans’ trading block.

O’Connor explained on his latest podcast that a deal is highly unlikely for Holiday considering Blazers’ limited trade assets.

In a potential trade, CJ McCollum could be the type of player the Blazers should offer to make a trade work.

Although Holiday will certainly help Portland’s perimeter defense, he might not offer the same return McCollum offers in the offensive end.
