The Portland Trail Blazers are indicating to teams that they are interested in keeping veterans Jerami Grant and Malcolm Brogdon. Both players have been rumored targets of several teams ahead of the trade deadline.
For the Trail Blazers to consider moving either player, they'd need an offer that blows them away.
Grant is in the first year of the five-year, $160 million deal he re-signed with Portland on this past summer. The Blazers have said they see Grant as a veteran leader for their young team, as well as a key player at a position where they don't have a lot of depth.
Brogdon was acquired this summer in the series of deals that saw Portland move both Damian Lillard and Jrue Holiday. The veteran guard is owed $22.5 million in each of this season and next. Portland has other young guards, but likes what Brogdon has brought that group as a veteran.
Shaedon Sharpe will undergo surgery to repair a core muscle injury, the Portland Trail Blazers announced on Tuesday.
The Blazers will release a timeline for his recovery following the surgery.

Malcolm Brogdon was happy to join the Portland Trail Blazers via trade this past summer. Part of that was Brogdon not feeling wanted in Boston.
"When I was first traded, I viewed it as an opportunity. I really did," Brogdon said. "You can ask people around me how my energy was in training camp. I was excited to be here. I was excited to be with a championship coach. And I was excited to go from a place where I wasn’t as valued, and go to place where I am very valued."
Brogdon was asked if that meant he didn't feel valued by the Celtics. He expanded a bit, while giving kudos to Chauncey Billups.
"At times. At times," Brogdon said. "I was there for a year, won Sixth Man of the Year, and they shipped me out. So like … I didn’t feel very valued there. Here, I feel valued. Portland has embraced me. And I’ve enjoyed being coached by Chauncey (Billups)."
