Blazers Intend To Use Both First Round Picks
Neil Olshey said he intends to use both the 6th and 11th picks in the first round of the draft.
"Right now, what we can net back just isn't enough to justify moving the picks," Olshey said. "I'm pretty comfortable (figuring picks) 1-2-3-4. After that, it's going to be a crapshoot."
Olshey sees the Blazers as being in the asset acquisition phase of their rebuild plan.
"The whole league is about having assets," Olshey said. "It's about having good young players, liquid contracts and cap flexibility. And right now, we have some of those. We don't have all of them, we have some of them."
