A source told CSN Northwest that teams have been calling the Blazers about J.J. Hickson's availability.
It isn't a surprise. Hickson is on a very affordable one-year deal, and there are a number of teams that could use his services. The Blazers have a nice trade chip should they look to move Hickson before the February 21 deadline, but because Hickson is a Birds Rights player on a one-year deal, he has the power to veto any trade. If he accepts a trade, he will lose his Bird Rights.
