The Portland Trail Blazers are "intensely engrossed" with trying to improve their roster ahead of the deadline and have no plans to tank, sources tell Chris Haynes of Bleacher Report.

The Blazers continue to believe they can build a contender around Damian Lillard. But the Blazers have lost 13 of 19 games and are now 13th in the West.

The Blazers are looking for shooting, size and depth. Portland ranks last in points off the bench with just 24.0 points per game.
