The 2021 NBA Draft is less than a week away and the Portland Trail Blazers could look to jump back into the action as the event unfolds. In an effort to cover multiple topics prior to Thursday’s big night, The Church of Roy podcast returned for a special draft-themed episode. Host Steve Dewald is joined by guest Michael Visenberg of the Viseland podcast and Prospective Insight.

This episode covers prospects that could land in both rounds of the draft. At the top of the draft, Mike and Steve deliver their lists of the most NBA-ready prospects in the 2021 class. Is there a lottery-projected player that the Blazers should make a move for?

For the second round, Mike and Steve discuss developmental players that could land on the Blazers’ radar. From high-upside picks to role players with established skills, the 2021 class features a handful of noteworthy “sleeper” options.

Here is the full episode:
