Bazemore started the 2019-20 season with the Trail Blazers after a June trade sent Bazemore from Atlanta to Portland (and Evan Turner to Atlanta). Bazemore appeared in Portland's first 43 games, with 21 starts. Over that span, he averaged 7.9 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.0 steals over 25.8 minutes per game. On Dec. 21, he posted 19 points, two boards, two assists, three steals and two blocks during a home win over the Timberwolves. That was Bazemore's best game with the Trail Blazers. On Jan. 21, the versatile wing was traded to the Sacramento Kings with Anthony Tolliver and second round draft picks in exchange for Trevor Ariza, Wenyen Gabriel and Caleb Swanigan. Bazemore made his Kings' debut on Jan. 22 and delivered seven points, three rebounds and one steal during a loss at Detroit. On Feb. 22, he delivered a season-high 23 points, six rebounds and four steals during a road win over the Clippers. Bazemore appeared in 21 games for the Kings before the season was suspended on Mar. 11. He averaged 10.3 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.2 steals per contest for Sacramento.2018
As a member of the Hawks, Bazemore appeared in 67 games, making 35 starts and averaging 11.6 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.3 steals in 24.5 minutes. He shot 40.2 percent from the floor, 32.0 percent from three and 72.6 percent from the free throw line. Bazemore reached double figures in scoring 37 times, headlined by a career-best 32 points against Dallas on Oct. 24. Later in the season, Bazemore matched that total in a Dec. 26 matchup against Indiana. On Nov. 11 against the Lakers, Bazemore recorded a season-high five steals. He finished 29th in the NBA in steals per game and 13th in steal percentage.2017
Bazemore's fourth season in Atlanta was remarkably steady. He contributed in several different categories, both offensively and defensively. Bazemore averaged 12.9 points, a new career high. He scored in double figures in 45 of 65 games, including 10 contests in which he poured in 20 or more points. Bazemore was particularly effective from downtown; after shooting no better than 36.4 percent from behind the arc in any season prior, Bazemore upped that number to 39.4 percent in the 2017-18 campaign. He drained a career-high six threes in a loss to Cleveland on December 12. Bazemore's 3.5 assists were also a career best. Additionally, the Old Dominion product averaged 1.5 steals, good for 14th in the NBA. In the 65 games in which he played, Bazemore failed to record a theft in just 17 of them, and he had five steals on two separate occasions.2016
In his third season with the Hawks, Bazemore appeared in 73 games during the regular season, starting 64 of them. He averaged 11.0 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.2 steals per contest. He finished fifth in scoring, fourth in assists and third in steals on the squad. The assist figure represented a career high. He scored in double figures on 40 occasions during the regular season. Bazemore hit the 25-point mark twice during the campaign, a figure that represented his season high. He appeared in all six playoff games for the Hawks.

Bazemore managed 16 points, four rebounds and seven dimes in a 111-101 victory.2015
Bazemore saw his role increase in his second season in Atlanta. The versatile wing appeared in 75 games for the second straight year. But he went from starting just 10 of those games in 2014-15 to starting 68 games in 2015-16. His role increased accordingly, as Bazemore went from 17.7 minutes per game to 27.8 per game. The larger workload allowed the Old Dominion product to score a career-best 11.6 points per game. Bazemore also set new career highs with 5.1 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game. The 26-year-old did much of his damage from three-point range, as he attempted 4.1 three-pointers per game and converted at a 35.7 percent clip. Bazemore scored a season-high 28 points in a loss to Miami on Dec. 14. He also went for 26 points and knocked down a season-high five three-pointers in a win over Houston on Dec. 29. Bazemore made his impact felt on defense as well, as he recorded a new career-high 1.3 steals per game. His season high for steals in a game was five, which he accomplished on two different occasions.2014

Bazemore's high-scoring game of the season came against the Hornets on Mar. 28, when he put up 20 points on 7-of-14 shooting. It was Bazemore's only 20-point effort of the year, but he scored in double-digits on 14 other occasions. Bazemore grabbed a season-high nine rebounds four times, with the Hawks winning three of those games. He registered a season-best five assists in a win over Brooklyn on Apr. 4. Bazemore appeared in all 16 of the Hawks' postseason games, averaging 5.4 points, 3.3 rebounds and 0.7 steals in 19.0 minutes per post-season contest. He started the final two games of the Eastern Conference Finals against Cleveland, scoring 14 and 12 points, respectively. In Game 4 against the Cavaliers, Bazemore finished with 12 points, eight rebounds and three assists. In Game 3, he played a playoff-career-high 43 minutes.2013

First, on Dec. 6 against the Rockets, and again on Dec. 31 in Orlando. In February, he was traded to the Lakers in a deal that brought Steve Blake to Golden State.
