The Blazers have traded reserve forward Noah Vonleh to the Chicago Bulls. 

The deal was first reported on Twitter by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The Blazers later confirmed the trade. 

The Blazers receive the rights to Milovan Rakovic, a forward from Serbia who has played his entire professional career ovreseas, according to NBA.com. He was the last player taken in the 2007 NBA Draft.

Rakovic, 32, currently plays for Neuchatel in Switzerland. 

Vonleh was the ninth overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft by the Charlotte Hornets. He was traded to Portland in 2015 as part of a deal for Nicolas Batum.

This season, Vonleh was averaging 3.6 points and 5.1 rebounds in 14.4 minutes per game for Portland. He played in 185 games for the Blazers with 109 starts.
