Trail Blazers big man Jusuf Nurkic took center stage in this week’s episode of The Church of Roy podcast. Co-hosts Steve Dewald and Brian Wilcox dive into the potential changes that coach Chauncey Billups will bring to the Blazers’ offensive scheme. From Billups’ comments about Clippers center Ivica Zubac to his early thoughts on the Blazers’ roster, it appears that Nurkic is in for a boost.

Along with the potential for new alignments, they explain how a change in leadership could lead to improved accountability on both ends of the floor. Outside of coaching, Brian delivers his take on a potential Ben Simmons trade and Steve touches on his obsession with Pelicans forward Brandon Ingram.

In the final third of the show, Brian and Steve highlight interesting matchups for Damian Lillard and Team USA in the upcoming Tokyo Olympics. Finally, they wrap things up by discussing the Blazers’ options, or lack thereof, in the 2021 NBA Draft. Will Portland trade back into the action?
