The Philadelphia 76ers aim to bolster their roster and want to acquire veteran guard Eric Gordon via a 3-team trade. To land Gordon, the Sixers will need to get a third team to participate, which could be the Portland Trail Blazers.
Philadelphia is willing to send guard/forward Matisse Thybulle to the Blazers in order to get Eric Gordon from the Houston Rockets.
But Sixers president Daryl Morey wants to the Blazers to do a three-team deal in order to get Gordon, sources say.

Philadelphia GM Daryl Morey is a big fan of the 33-year-old guard as they both were members of the Rockets team that was fighting for the title under James Harden.
For its part, Houston still is in a rebuild mode and seeks to trade both Eric Gordon and star guard John Wall. Gordon averaged 13.4 points, 2.7 assists, and two rebounds last season, on 47.5% from the field and 41.2% from beyond the arc.
Last but not least, the Blazers want to become playoff contenders with Damian Lillard back healthy and bolstered their roster by trading for all-around forward Jerami Grant.
