Plenty of fish in the sea

With the long awaited results of the nba draft lottery the options for the Portland Trailblazers this offseason just became more clear. The future gm has many options as to where he wants to go with the future of this franchise. First on his to do list should be hiring a coach with a proven track record of coaching young players and a set game plan. The hodgepodge that was last season ended in a dumpster fire of despair. The problem with youth is the risk of inconsistency. Something blazers fans have unfortunately become accustomed to. As much as I like the players in this supposed "deep" draft, I wouldn't be against trading one or more of our picks in exchange for a serviceable veteran. Point guards are hard to come by, and there really doesn't seem to be a game changer in this draft. If there doesn't seem to be any options in free agency, perhaps a trade on draft day will be in the works.
