Disappointed after another Summer League loss, Swanigan’s head remains in the right place.

NBA: Summer League-Portland Trailblazers at Boston Celtics Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Caleb Swanigan put forth another incredible effort on Tuesday, posting a 19-and-13 double-double in the Trail Blazers’ loss to the San Antonio Spurs. His Summer League play has been a bright spot for Portland, now 1-2 in preliminary games.

Swanigan tallied 15 points in the first half, but was slowed after an injury to teammate Zach Collins forced him into the center position late in the game and the Spurs adjusted accordingly. He remained a brute force on the glass throughout the contest.

Swanigan: "My motor is going to be the best in the NBA"

Key quote:

“My motor is going to be the best in the NBA. That’s my goal and that’s what I want to be. You come out ‘Swanigan is playing his hardest every night, he’s talking and trying to win.’ That’s the type of player I want to be and the legacy I want to leave.”

Seeding for the Summer League tournament will be determined after preliminary games for all teams have been completed. Swanigan figures to be an impact player for the Trail Blazers through the rest of their stay in Las Vegas.
