Olshey: Blazers Need More Production At Point Guard
Neil Olshey wants more production from the point guard position, and the Blazers have two lottery picks with which to fill that need.
"Clearly point guard is a need, and it is going to be addressed," Olshey said. "But right now, I can't answer which vehicle we will use to address it. But once we address it and acquire it, you will know," the direction the franchise has taken.
The top two point guard prospects, Damian Lillard and Kendall Marshall, are expected to be available when Portland selects at six.
"Look, what's hard for some people to realize is you have to get all the (prospects) in at (picks) 6 and 11 so you can accurately value what the pick is really worth before you start putting things into play," Olshey said. "What we know today is that we have picks six and 11. What we don't know is what six and 11 will become: Do they become young players? Do they become trade assets? Right now, they are just tools, and depending on how they are used is kind of going to set the direction we go."
