Trail Blazers DEPTH CHART
27-55 • 13th in WESTERN CONFERENCE
Second-year swingman Gary Trent Jr. had a breakout campaign during the 2019-20 season, and he emerged as a tremendous option for the Blazers off the bench. At one point in the season, there were even some whispers that the 21-year-old could be in the running for the league's Sixth Man of the Year award.
In 61 games for the Blazers, Trent averaged 8.9 points, 1.6 rebounds, and 1.0 assists in 21.8 minutes off the bench. The former Duke standout also knocked down 1.8 triples per game on a highly-efficient 41.8-percent clip.
Blazers cornerstone superstar Damian Lillard serves as the team's starting point guard, playing alongside the sharp-shooting CJ McCollum to form the Portland backcourt. The rest of Portland’s starting five heading into the 2020-21 season will consist of Derrick Jones, Robert Covington, and Jusuf Nurkic. Gary Trent Jr. and Carmelo Anthony figure to play prominent minutes off the bench.
