The 2009 Trail Blazers Summer League roster has finally been released! I know we've all been waiting to see which hopefuls would be joining reigning MVP Jerryd Bayless and the Blazers newest draft picks. Here you go!
Jerryd Bayless - G - Arizona
Jeff Pendergraph - F - Arizona State
Dante Cunningham - F - Villanova
Patty Mills - G - St. Mary's (CA)
Thomas Gardner - G - Missouri
Pooh Jeter - G - Portland
Bobby Jones - F - Washington
David Padgett - F - Louisville
Deji Akindele - C - Chicago State
Matt Freije - F - Vanderbilt
Dwayne Mitchell - F - Lousiana-Lafayette

I'm not about to go into a breakdown of the summer league roster as that would be a complete waste of time. All I know is that Bayless will dominate again while many of us will get to see if Pendergraph and Cunningham are ready to step into a roster spot.
It's nice to see Jeter and Gardner on the squad getting a chance in the league but neither will make a big enough splash. At least they get to continue to live the dream for a few more years.
The 2 questions we'll need answering are:
- Can Bayless become a point guard or just remain a scorer?
- Is Patty Mills an NBA level prospect?
