At Blazers media day, coach Terry Stotts said he’s keeping an open mind about the team’s starting unit outside of his big three.
Dame Lillard, C.J. McCollum and Jusuf Nurkic are the locks, leaving a group including Al-Farouq Aminu, Evan Turner and Maurice Harkless battling for the other two jobs. Harkless and Aminu seem like the favorites due to their versatility but things could change. Lillard also continues to pump the tires of rookie Caleb Swanigan, who lit up Summer League. Harkless is a sneaky play with quiet top-100 potential while Aminu could return late-round value without much trouble. They’re our favorite targets, though Swanigan is quickly rising the ranks in dynasty formats.
