Portland Trail Blazers 2009 Summer League Roster

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
David Moss  - G - Indiana State

Summer League Head Coach - Joe Prunty

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?

Pendergraph...isn't he the guy Channing Frye beat up in workouts? The same Channing who was the 10th guy on the team last year? Wow.

Yes he is. But isn't Channing the guy that's been in the league for 4 years?

About This Blog

This Portland Trail Blazers blog definitely isn't your basic "recap/report the news" kind of blog. We tend to lean a little to the sporadic and unsystematic side of this young and sexy basketball team. Oh, and you'll definitely see a lot of Blazer Dancer action around here, so bring your bucket of ice.
