Photo by Jeff Haynes/NBAE via Getty Images Reed Sheppard likely isn’t on the Portland Trail Blazers radar. While Kentucky guard Reed Sheppard is considered to be one of the best prospects in the 2024 NBA Draft, don’t expect the Portland Trail Blazers to take him if he’s available with the No. 7 overall pick. Bleacher Report’s Zach Buckley writes that the Blazers are the worst fit for Sheppard among any lottery-bound team. The Blazers might have a pressing need for perimeter shooting, but they don’t need more guards. Especially not ones who stand just 6’2” and come with all of the defensive co ..read more

Photo by Jacek Boczarski/Anadolu via Getty Images The Portland Trail Blazers have a clear need going into the 2024 NBA Draft. The Portland Trail Blazers are nine days away from the 2024 NBA Draft and they have four picks to ponder over that time, beginning with No. 7 overall. Bleacher Report’s Greg Swartz has identified the Blazers’ top need as a floor spacer. The only NBA team with four or more draft picks in 2024, the Portland Trail Blazers have a clear positional need on their roster. After taking guards Scoot Henderson and Shaedon Sharpe in the top-seven picks the last two years and with ..read more

Blazers Coaching Job Bottom 5 in NBA
Blazer's Edge

Photo by Rocky Widner/NBAE via Getty Images The Portland Trail Blazers coaching gig isn’t enticing. Portland Trail Blazers coach Chauncey Billups has been put in a tough spot. It’s hard for him to compete with a roster that isn’t built to win, but rather funnel down to the bottom of the standings in order to acquire high-end talent in the next couple of drafts. That’s why CBS Sports writer Sam Quinn labeled the Blazers coaching job as the 27th-best in the NBA. The Joe Cronin era has been eventful, but not especially telling about his acumen as an executive. The C.J. McCollum trade failed to y ..read more

Potential Blazer Mid-Level and Bi-Annual Targets

Photo by Sarah Stier/Getty Images Free agency isn’t front of mind but there’re a handful of interesting names out there. The Portland Trail Blazers walk into free agency three days after the second and final day of the NBA Draft. With up to 14 contracted players and four picks in hand, the Blazers are dealing with a roster crunch and a payroll $4 million shy of the luxury tax. While the Blazers don’t need to whittle down their roster to 15 this minute — they can hold up to 21 during the offseason — clearing salary gives them more free agency options in July. They do this via lop-sided trades a ..read more
