    Noah Vonleh will be in his 3rd NBA season and is STILL the 2nd youngest player on the Blazers Summer League roster.

    I know, right? I don't know about anybody else, but seeing his name on our roster made me irrationally happy. Always gonna have a soft spot for the guy.

    Can't include him on a roster if we can't officially buy (trade for) him yet.

    Pierre Jackson - hope he recovered from his Achilles tear and can get back to playing like this:

    For D-League and Summer League, I always pick a favorite player. With no Crabbe, this time it's Bitchynski. I gotta look up his stastiskis right now.

    Kind of funny that Alexander and Vonleh are the two youngest on the roster.

    That team would definitely beat next year's Blazers.

    Kyle Anderson is amazing to watch. They don't call him "SloMo" for nothing - he really looks like he's playing underwater. But somehow he gets the job done. Someone like Dragan Bender really needs to watch him play. Currently he's +22 with 23 points in 23 minutes...

    Looking forward to watching Montero and especially Alexander. Alexander could be a rim protector/junkyard dog for us next season if he's progressed enough. Watched his dleague games last year and his help defense is definitely there and he crashes the boards. He's also got man strength and he's long despite his height. He's the one to watch imo. Montero will be fun but I doubt there are any minutes on the wing unless we unexpectedly let crabbe and mo go.

    I wouldn't mind giving Christain Wood & Rodney McGruder a chance.

    Don't know anything about McGruder, but I thought the same about Wood. Feels like a high upside guy to me.

    If Pierre Jackson is healthy he'd be our leading scorer, undersized but an amazing talent.
    Russ Smith is an NCAA champion, another fiery undersized SG.
    I wonder if one of them makes the team, Pierre Jackson specifically is a special player. Never really made it in the league but an NBDL legend

    Connaughton was just interviewed and he said he's gone from 10% body fat to 6. Looks it as well. Hopefully that helps with his quickness.
