The Blazers then proceeded to trade away Holiday to the Celtics for Malcokm Brodgan Robert WIlliams and future picks.
Segment 2: The draft.
The Blazers with the #2 overall pick decided to select Scoot Henderson of ou the G league Ignite. Henderson has not been everything Portland has expected to start the season as he is struggling greatly from the 3-point line. The Blazers hope that this is just rookie slums as Henderson has shown some potential, but it hasn’t looked great. The Blazers also hope that thier young guards Simmons and Sharp can take another step moving forward becoming all starts in the future.
