Just days after winning the Open Division, widely regarded as California’s most grueling, last season, Trailblazers shooting guard Cassius Stanley, who is ranked No. 16 overall in the Chosen 25 for 2019, guaranteed to USA Today Sports that they would repeat this season.
Stanley (17 ppg., 5.9 rpg., 3.1 apg.), forward K.J. Martin (18 ppg., 10 rpg.), combo guard Scotty Pippen and forward Terren Frank, who had a breakout summer on the Nike EYBL, all return as starters for the Trailblazers.
They’ve also added two 7-footers – Christian Koloko and Yu Jia-Hao – along with shooting guard Andrew Austin.
The Trailblazers have all the pieces to bring Stanley’s prediction to fruition.
