The Portland Trail Blazers are looking ahead - to next June - while Denver and New Jersey have a more distant future in mind.

Those three teams pulled off a multiplayer deal Wednesday that attempted to fill the needs of each.Walter Davis went to Portland, giving the Trail Blazers a veteran guard for the springtime push to the NBA championship.

Drazen Petrovic and Terry Mills moved to New Jersey, filling the Nets' need for a young backcourt scorer and help at forward.

Denver acquired a first-round draft pick that could become a very high selection if the Nets don't improve dramatically in the next three years, plus veteran help in Greg Anderson.
