    Kuzma was the next pick
    Hart shortly after
    Several solid second rounders

    But most of the league missed on them also

    Easy to root for? According to a certain poster with access to the team. Swanigan was not very receptive to coaching. He also looks visibly bigger and in worse shape now than when he was drafted. Seems like he has character issues...

    He looked depressed the whole time he was in Portland.

    Also interesting that none of his teammates said bye to him on social media.

    Well, with Skal you can at least hope. That's more than Swanigan could offer

    Pels look like they got great value for #4.

    I understand the Hawks wanting Hunter, but definitely chased fit a little too hard imo.

    TYLER HERRO IS GOOD!!!

    +2 or +3 level offensive ceiling.

    Smart, instinctual, tough and competitive enough to provide salvageable defensive value despite size and on ball D deficiencies.

    The Trail Blazers’ Summer League squad are two games into their quest to repeat their 2018 Summer League Championship. How do they look? Who has the hot hand, who still needs work, and who has been a surprise?

    Blazer’s Edge staff members Miles Custis, Steve DeWald and Tara Bowen-Biggs share their observations about the games and the atmosphere at the tournament.

    1:00 Miles’ earthquake report and first impressions of Summer League.

    2:30 Overall impressions of Game 1 against the Detroit Pistons. Communication was rough and that made it difficult to get any rhythm.

    4:00 Some of the younger guys like Little and Hoard are still learning the NBA vocabulary.

    5:00 There was a night and day difference between the first and second games. It helped that the shots were falling (and the competition was pretty undersized).

    7:35 How much will the Blazers be looking to Anfernee Simons for playmaking? What can he work on to be more effective in regular season games?

    I hope they don't include him.

    Would allow him a good chance to fulfill his potential, but I really like his fit with that Heat group.
