NWSB Editor Bryant Knox brings us his weekly video recap of the Portland Trail Blazers. In Week 10, the team from the Pacific Northwest went 2-2, taking down the Oklahoma City Thunder and Charlotte Bobcats, while falling to the New Orleans Pelicans and Philadelphia 76ers. As usual, Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge stood out for Portland, but Kevin Durant and Tyreke Evans both had per performances as well.
NWSB Insider Steve Lee gives us a look at former Washington Husky Tony Wroten. After his one-and-done year for the Dawgs, many people thought Wroten should have stayed to define his raw talent a bit more. But the Memphis Grizzlies took a chance on him, and it seemed like their gamble didn’t pay off, as he saw little time on the floor for the Grizz. But now in his second year he is seeing new life on a new team; the Philadelphia 76ers.
NWSB Insider and Portland Trail Blazers’ blogger Jason Hartzog talks about what five players he would like to see drafted by the Blazers with the No. 10 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. There is a mixed bunch drafted at number 10, but judging by history, the odds of drafting at least a role player is pretty high. All the Blazers need is a role player. They need someone to come off the bench and score some points. Targets look like Shabazz Muhammad, Cody Zeller, and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.
Bryant Knox breaks down which NBA prospects the Portland Trail Blazers should target in the 2013 NBA draft. If PDX can enter the top 3, Nerlens Noel has to be on their radar. Big man Alex Len will be tough to obtain, but with a draft-day deal, he could be a target. Michael Carter Williams, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Cody Zeller should also be on Portland’s radar.
