Who Will the Portland Trail Blazers Keep on the Roster?

The Portland Trail Blazers need to make roster decisions soon. Who's in and who's out?

Craig Mitchelldyer-USA TODAY Sports

The Portland Trail Blazers' training camp roster has 17 players under contract; 11 of those contracts are fully guaranteed, six aren't. That issue is likely to be resolved, at least partially, over the next couple days.

If they do nothing else, the Blazers need to pare down to 15 players by October 26. Of the six players with non-guaranteed contracts, five may not make the team;  Here are the possible cuts (and their preseason stats):

Cliff Alexander (Injured)
Tim Frazier (14.7 MIN, 5.0 PPG, 2.8 APG, 2.0 RPG)
Omari Johnson (5.9 MIN, 2.3 PPG, 1.0 RPG)
Luis Montero (3.8 MIN, 1.0 PPG, 1.0 APG)
Phil Pressey (16.5 MIN, 4.8 PPG, 2.0 RPG)

One of our editors, David MacKay, wrote this about the possible roster shifts:

"It's not out of the question for the Blazers to scoop up a free agent if they see someone they like; especially if Montero isn't quite what they want. I tend to think he'll make the team though."

So we're asking you today, when you look at the roster who's in and who's out, and why? What do you think Portland's next roster moves should be?
