The Trail Blazers have been involved in lots of trade rumors heading into Thursday night’s NBA draft. The latest involves the team picking up Orlando point guard Jameer Nelson in exchange for current pointman Andre Miller and the 21st pick in the draft, according to a tweet from Jonathan Givnoy of Draft Express.
Miller has a non-guaranteed contract for 2012 while Nelson is owed $7.2 million for the upcoming season and has a player option for the year after that. If the Magic decided not to keep Miller, Gilbert Arenas, who was acquired in the middle of the 2010-11 season, could take over at the point guard spot for Orlando.
