On this week’s episode of the Blazer’s Edge podcast, Greg Wissinger Managing Editor of The King’s Herald hops on with Danny Marang to take a look at former Sacramento King, and newly signed Trail Blazer big, Harry Giles III. How healthy is he? What kind of player is he now (and what could he be later)? How does he get on the floor - and should he play over Enes Kanter? Why doesn’t he shoot 3’s and how on Earth did he end up a free agent already!? That and more on this week’s episode of the Blazer’s Edge podcast.
