The Portland Trail Blazers have acquired All- Star forward Gerald Wallace from the Charlotte Bobcats in exchange for center Joel Przybilla, forward Dante Cunningham, forward/center Sean Marks and two future first-round picks.
The 28-year-old Wallace was averaging 15.6 points, 8.2 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 48 starts this season.
A nine-year veteran out of Alabama, Wallace, an All-Star a season ago, has posted per-game averages of 13.4 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.0 assists over 592 games -- 454 starts -- with Sacramento and the Bobcats.
"I want to welcome Gerald to the Trail Blazers," Blazers owner Paul Allen said. "He is just the sort of talent we were looking for. I'm sure our fans will embrace him and hopefully he can help us make some noise in the playoffs.
"I also want to thank Joel, Dante and Sean. Joel has been a warrior for this franchise over the past six and 1/2 seasons and Dante has played an important role in the success this team has had this season."
Excellent move by Cho. I hate to give up Dante, but Wallace should really help us.
