Mason Plumlee Traded The Same Day His Car Was Broken Into

Center Mason Plumlee had a rough weekend.  A rough Sunday in particular.  He had his car broken into early Sunday morning and was later traded from Portland to Denver.

CSNNWPlayers are required to be at the team’s facility by 10:15 a.m. for an 11 a.m. practice, but Plumlee on Sunday was there at 9:30 a.m. in order to expedite a pressing order.

Earlier that morning, as he approached his SUV in the parking garage of his Pearl District complex, he noticed someone had broken into his car.

His mind raced. Gone was his checkbook. His wallet.

“I went in early to the facility to start cancelling my checkbook, my credit cards,’’ Plumlee said. “And someone said, ‘Neil wants to meet with you.’’

Which is worse?  The theft of his stuff or being traded to Denver.  I mean getting traded to pretty much any team in the West that's not Golden State sucks.

Fun fact.  He's the second Plumlee to get traded in the last couple of weeks.
