The Toronto Raptors have reportedly traded Norman Powell to the Portland Trail Blazers for Gary Trent and Rodney Hood.
Powell ends a six-year run in Toronto that includes an NBA championship ring in 2019.
Toronto PG Kyle Lowry was still a Raptor after the 3 p.m. ET trade deadline Thursday.
The Raptors snapped a nine-game losing streak Wednesday night against Denver, their first win since Feb. 26.
Powell is expected to turn down an $11.6M player option for next season to test free agency. He’s currently enjoying a career-best season at 19.5 PPG.
Prior to the start of the 2017/18 NBA season, Powell signed a 4-year, $42M extension with the Raptors.

He’s made 43.9% of 269 attempts from beyond the arc this year.
