Which Tall White Guy Will The Portland Trailblazers Draft Tonight?

I am not a basketball guy. I know nothing about the needs of the Portland Trailblazers as they head into the 2019 NBA Draft. However, I do notice trends:

  • In 2012 – the Blazers acquired Meyers Leonard through the draft.
  • In 2016 – the Blazers acquired Jake Layman on draft night.
  • In 2017 – the Blazers acquired Zach Collins through the draft.

What do all of these players have in common? That’s right, they are tall white guys.

Looking at the players in the draft tonight, here are a few to keep your eye on when the Blazers are on the clock:

Tyler Herro – 6’6″ – G – Kentucky

Goga Bitadze – 6’11” – C – Buducnost

Ty Jerome – 6’6″ – G – Virginia

Dylan Windler – 6’8″ – SF – Belmont

Luka Samanic – 6’10” – PF – Olimpija Ljubljana

Alen Smailagic – 6’10” – PF – Santa Cruz

Deividas Sirvydis – 6’8″ – SF – Lietuvos Rytas

Who do you think the Blazers will draft tonight? I know who I would put my money on.
