The team has hired Jordan Kent as its new television play-by-play announcer, the Oregonian/OregonLive has learned, replacing a future Hall of Famer with a local broadcaster on the rise.

Kent, who filled in for Kevin Calabro during the Blazers’ run in the Orlando-based bubble, will join Lamar Hurd to form a talented broadcast duo.
