Now that Steve Francis is officially gone, we can update the Blazer roster.
PG: Jack, Rodriguez, Green (Koponen: staying in europe)
SG: Roy, Webster (Fernandez: staying in europe)
SF: Jones (Miles: inactive list)
PF: Aldridge, Frye, McRoberts, Freeland
C: Oden, Pryzbilla, LaFrentz
Removing the Europe and Inactive guys, that comes to 13 players. If you assume they’re going to add one more small forward (outlaw, a free agent, whomever), that makes 14 players.
Which says to me that clearly there isn’t room on the team for all of Taurean Green, Joel Freeland, and Josh McRoberts. For this reason alone I think the Blazers will encourage Freeland to head back to Europe for one more year, and probably give the last roster spot to either McRoberts or Green, with the odd man out going to the NBDL. Or if Freeland stays stateside, perhaps two go to the NBDL. Talent-wise, I’d lean towards keeping McRoberts over Green, but as you can see we have a lot more big men than we do guards, so I wouldn’t assume quite yet that will be the case. Of course this could all change pending any trades, but as of today, that’s where we stand.
